Batman: Last Knight On Earth’s Trailer Sets a Dark Tone

Fans are about to see a whole new side to the Dark Knight – and it’s not going to be pretty. DC Comics has revealed the first trailer for the forthcoming comic miniseries Batman: Last Knight On Earth. And it paints a grim picture for what’s coming from long-time Batman collaborators Scott Snyder and artist Greg Capullo.

The trailer is below. It gives fans a glimpse of a world in ruins. Batman apparently must solve mysteries of his past in order “to save the future.” It also provides a darker take on characters from the Justice League. This includes a punk-like Wonder Woman (complete with Mohawk) and a scraggy-looking Superman. For that matter, the trailer also teases Green Lantern at his worst.

Here’s DC’s official synopsis from the first issue of the series: “Bruce Wayne wakes up in Arkham Asylum. Young. Sane. And…he was never Batman.

So begins this sprawling tale of the Dark Knight as he embarks on a quest through a devastated DC landscape featuring a massive cast of familiar faces from the DC Universe. As he tries to piece together the mystery of his past, he must unravel the cause of this terrible future and track down the unspeakable force that destroyed the world as he knew it…

From the powerhouse creative team of writer Scott Snyder and artist Greg Capullo, the team that reinvented Batman from the emotional depths of Court of Owls to the bombastic power of DARK NIGHTS: METAL, DC Black Label is proud to present the bimonthly, three-issue miniseries BATMAN: LAST KNIGHT ON EARTH, published at DC’s standard comic trim size.

This could be the last Batman story ever told.”

Batman: Last Knight On Earth #1 arrives on May 29. The other issues will follow in July and September, respectively.
