The film is inspired by an early 2000s DC comic book storyline by Mike Mignola, Richard Pace and Troy Nixey.

Extras include an audio commentary with the filmmakers and storytellers, including producer/co-director Sam Liu and screenwriter Jase Ricci, and the featurette “Batman: Shadows of Gotham,” an examination of themes of existential dread in a world drenched in gothic overtones that combine to create one of Batman’s most unique adventures.
