    I managed to see this (God bless the Internet). The last two episodes Working Through Pain and Dead Shot were the best. The others I didn't care about, they were just Batman fighting goons/freaks. Working Through Pain is the best and strongest episode really though, and has the strongest character development.

    Keep in mind, that one design is just for one segment. Every animator interprets him differently.

    That said, Conroy does have a little trouble matching the Bruce Wayne voice in that segment. Thank god he does the Bruce Wayne voice, though. That was one of the things I didn't like about when the show went to the WB, he kind of stopped doing it, basically just had Bruce doing the Batman voice.

    From the trailer it looks as though it features monsterous mutants, cyborgs, and possibly some kind of force field. These aren't things I'd expect in the universe established by Batman Begins.

    Even so, it looks cool, and it's Batman. That's enough to get my money.

    The force field isn't full-blown Dr. Doom variety; it's introduced with the same sort of quasi-realistic explanation as the rest of the Begins equipment.

    I mean, it's still out there, but not SO much more out there than the Tumbler or the flying cape.

    He actually mentioned that in a video interview with the Comic Book Club. It was more of a studio descision and not really his own.

    I don't feel like linking it because there are five segments of the interview and I don't know which segment he talks about it, but type in Kevin Conroy on youtube and you'll be able to find it.

    Saw this the other night at the local indie cinema.

    Didn't really do it for me.

    None of the stories really added anything.

    I have to say I didn't care for it. It wasn't bad, just didn't do anything for me.

    Finally saw it today. It arrived at my doorstep on the release date haha.

    Nothing really amazing... but it's a cute little story. I like how it sort of gradually shifted from being the perspective of other people to being the perspective of Batman in the end.

    I'll definitley watch it again.

    I think I can do with the single disc version, though I'd like to see the villains section on the second disc. I can do without the Bob Kane segment. I know enough about him, his work, and what kind of person he was.

    The visuals were nice, but I didn't find any of the stories particularly compelling. I also thought that Conroy's Batman voice wasn't really a good match to the tone of the stories. This Batman needed something with a harder edge to it.
