I haven’t watched something this cool in a long time. Batman of Shanghai features some of the series’ classic characters completely re-illustrated to fit a (somewhat) 1930’s Shanghai aesthetic. I loved how this animation put so much attention into traditional Chinese?art forms?like movements that create?brushstrokes, martial arts inspired fighting moves and even the music. China has been steadily entering the West (with new fury) over the past few years, and it’s creations like this that show how much of a mainstream impact the country is actually making. Thank you, Cartoon Network!
Batman of Shanghai is a series of animated shorts from the DC Nation block on Cartoon Network, presenting a unique re-imagining of the Batman universe in a heavily stylized form, set in a 1930’s era Shanghai.
