Discrepancies between film and novelEdit

  • Film: When asked by a derelict what Gotham looks like from the sky, Batman replies "It looks dirty.".
    Novel: When asked the same question, Batman replies "Many lights. Some shadows."
  • Film: Deadshot flicks a drink pick into a wasp.
    Novel: Deadshot flicks a drink pick between his employer's front teeth.
  • Film: Batman fights Deadshot on a moving train.
    Novel: Batman fights Deadshot in an abandoned warehouse.
  • Film: Crispus Allen is partnered with Anna Ramirez.
    Novel: Crispus is partnered with Renee Montoya. The change was made because the character's betrayal was already planned and the film makers did not want to corrupt the character of Renee Montoya.
  • Killer Croc's capture was never depicted or mentioned. Whereas in the novel Croc's capture is depicted in between the flashbacks from Working Through Pain.

DVDEdit

Batman: Gotham Knight is available on both single and two-disc editions. The cover of the single disc includes a shot of Batman running from the style of the Deadshot segment, while the two-disc and Blu-ray editions include a Batman in the foreground and another Batman from the background. Both from the Deadshot segment also. All the editions were released on July 8th, 2008.

The special features range from a documentary covering the well-know Batman characters, an audio commentary, a chronology on Batman creator Bob Kane, followed by bonus episodes from the classic Batman: The Animated Series and a sneak peek at the next movie of the DC Universe Original Animated Movies line: Wonder Woman.

NovelizationEdit

A novelization was released, also titled Batman: Gotham Knight.
