Watch Josh Newman’s “World’s Greatest True Detective”… It’s Pretty Damn Cool

Screen Shot 2014-03-18 at 2.53.35 PMWhat do you get when you take the music from the opening of HBO’s smash hit series “True Detective” and pair it with the World’s Greatest Detective from DC comics? Well you get a pretty fantastic video that fans of BOTH properties can enjoy. The song is called “Far From Any Road” and is performed by The Handsome Family.

Josh Newman directed this opening for a fictitious generic Batman series, entitled “World’s Greatest True Detective.” Throughout the video you can catch glimpses of work by Alex Ross and Frank Miller as well as see an image of actor Gary Oldman from the Batman films. I love that Josh had “Created by: Bill Finger” in the credit sequence which may throw off some but is a fantastic touch for true fans of The Dark Knight.
