As well as for those even more versed in Batman s comics background, it seems the aim of Batman: The Knight is to provide a succinct photo of how Bruce Wayne educated to end up being Batman, taking in the different aspects of the tale that have actually previously been informed in comics, and placing them through an acquainted lens.
And also lest any individual think we re digging unfathomable on the idea right here, DC is fully leaning into the Batman Begins movie comparison in its advancement solicitation message for Batman: The Knight 1, which coyly asks How did the Dark Knight … start? .
