See five minutes of Gotham Knight!

The Dark Knight is so very close now… We can almost touch it and it feels like soft, velvety cloak material.

But before we go completely bonkers with the metaphors, there’s the serious matter of Batman: Gotham Knight, the short anime adventures that will serve as linking material between Batman Begins and the new film.

MTV has kindly shoved five minutes from one of the shorts on to the web for your viewing pleasure. You can only see it if you live Stateside, but if you are one of our American readers, enjoy! It's very… violent, but suitably fun.
