Batman: Gotham Knight (バットマン ゴッサムナイト, Battoman Gossamu Naito) is a 2008 anthology film consisting of six short animated (anime-influenced) superhero films produced by Japanese animation studios Studio 4°C, Madhouse, Bee Train and Production I. G in association with DC Comics and Warner Bros. Animation. The shorts or segments in the film depict the DC Comics superhero Batman battling against the mob of Gotham City as well as other villains. Although intended to be set in between the films Batman Begins (2005) and The Dark Knight (2008), the producers have acknowledged that it is not necessarily meant to be canon to Christopher Nolan's Dark Knight Trilogy and any of the six segments could easily fall into almost any Batman continuity. The shorts are written by Josh Olson, David S. Goyer, Brian Azzarello, Greg Rucka, Jordan Goldberg and Alan Burnett. Although all based on Japanese anime art style, each segment has its own writing and artistic style just as the works from the DC Universe and with the same style of The Animatrix although some segments are connected, giving it the nickname, "The Batimatrix". All six films of the feature star Kevin Conroy, reprising his voice role as Batman from the DC animated universe.
