Eric Radomski's new job, a fab Bat-promo ... and a meow!!!

Eric Radomski, a name that's familiar to us fans of "Batman: The Animated Series," has gotten a new gig. He's serving as the chief creative officer of the Canadian-based Throwback Entertainment. Radomski has directed, produced and done visual effects for not just "B: TAS" but also its 1993 theatrical offshoot, "Batman: Mask of the Phantasm."

You can read more at the Wired Blog Network:

Also in Batnews ... Wanna get a glimpse inside the new Warner Bros. animated feature, "Batman: Gotham Knight"? The official site is up and running:

In the smashing video at the site, you'll hear from a few DC / Warner Bros. execs, including Bruce Timm, one of the masterminds behind the original animated series. From our own Bat-perspective, we're thinkin' if you weren't motivated to get the DVD or Blu-Ray (due on July 7), you will be, after checking this out. You can certainly see the Anime influence in the film, and the promo video speaks heavily to that, but when we watched it we couldn't help thinking ... This is no cartoon -- this is comic-book panels come to life! Fab!

(And is that Gary Dourdan of "CSI" we see in the voice credits? We had no idea! Major meow!!!!! Welcome to the Batworld, Handsome!!!!!!! Stay as long as you like!)
