Based on the comic book series by Mike Mignola, Richard Pace, and Troy Nixey, Batman: The Doom That Came To Gotham is “a 1920s-based tale that finds explorer Bruce Wayne accidentally unleashing an ancient evil, expediting his return to Gotham City after a two-decade hiatus,” according to the official synopsis for the film. “The logic/science-driven Batman must battle Lovecraftian supernatural forces threatening the sheer existence of Gotham, along the way being aided and confronted by reimagined versions of his well-known allies and enemies, including Green Arrow, Ra’s al Ghul, Mr. Freeze, Killer Croc, Two-Face, James Gordon, and Bruce’s beloved wards. Prepare for a mystical, often terrifying Batman adventure unlike any other.”
Batman: The Doom That Came to Gotham stars David Giuntoli (Grimm, A Million Little Things) as he reprises his role role as Batman following his portrayal in Batman: Soul of the Dragon. Also appearing in the film is Tati Gabrielle (Kaleidoscope) as Kai Li Cain, Christopher Gorham (The Lincoln Lawyer) as Oliver Queen, Patrick Fabian (Better Call Saul) as Harvey Dent, John DiMaggio (Futurama) as James Gordon, and David Dastmalchian (Dune, The Suicide Squad, Ant-Man) as Grendon.
