New Gotham Knight pics!

It takes very little to make us excited about Batman Begins follow-up The Dark Knight, so we’re happy to leap on any small extra nugget.

And from the looks of it, the direct-to-DVD animated series Batman: Gotham Knight looks like it’ll hit our pleasure centres in exactly the right way.

With the likes of A History Of Violence’s Josh Olsen and Begins co-scribe David Goyer, the anime-flavoured mini-movies will bridge the gap between the two movies and allow for plenty of extra villains to crop up.

Now there are new pictures in the wild , so head on over and start wishing that The Dark Knight’s release wasn’t so many months away…
