Live Action Version of the Batman: The Animated Series Intro

(Video Link)

On September 5, 1992, Batman: The Animated Series aired for the first time, launching the DC Animated Universe and more than a decade of beautiful storytelling.

It all began with an introductory sequence showing the Dark Knight moving through the night like a phantom, striking down two criminals. Tomi Pietilä directed this remake of that introduction, combining live action and computer generated animation.

You can watch his behind-the-scenes description of it here. Pietilä himself served as the stunt stand-in for Batman. He expresses something that all of us can surely understand:

. . . and me jumping as Batman, living out those childhood fantasies. Childhood--who am I kidding? If you ever get the chance to stand on top of a tall building late at night dressed as Batman, go for it.
