With 2014 being Batman’s 75th anniversary, DC has been going all out in celebration of the famed hero’s legacy. This short, entitled Batman: Strange Days, was produced by long time Batman veteran Bruce Timm. Known as one of the biggest names behind the DCAU, or the DC Animated Universe, Bruce Timm is perhaps best known for co-creating and co-producing Batman: The Animated Series from the early 90s. The style and tone that Timm brought to Batman became the standard in TV animation for the better part of a decade. Many of the other television super hero franchises in subsequent years were either produced by Timm or heavily influenced by him.
Besides this short, DC All Access had an "All-Batman" episode, featuring an interview with Bruce Timm, as well as some interviews with some of the writers of the comics.
This fantastic short personally has me wishing there was more. Batman: The Animated Series was classic, and many other series on television have been great for Batman. Batman: The Brave and the Bold, for example. Seems about time we had another traditionally animated Batman TV series.
