After announcing last month that Batman would be securing a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, the DC hero will be returning in the form of an upcoming comic book sequel, dubbed Curse Of The White Knight, following its preceding Batman: White Knight miniseries.

Illustrated in a nocturnal setting, the animated trailer showcases a reimagined Batmobile speeding through blazing fires as it passes by various scenes from the series, offering a glimpse of the kind of artwork we can expect. The forthcoming series is the result of the collaborative work between Sean Murphy and Matt Hollingsworth, with Murphy on the writing and drawing; Hollingsworth, the colors. With Batman: White Knight seeing widely positive reviews, fans can look forward to a similar level of the artistry from the duo. The original 2017 White Knight comic followed a storyline where the Joker was able to reclaim his sanity as Jack Napier, flipping the familiar villain-hero dynamic of what we’re used to seeing between the characters.

In the Curse Of The White Knight, however, the Joker has once again taken control over Napier. He sets out to reign terror over Gotham and undo the reputation that Napier previously established. Compared to the first issue, we see a much more humanistic side of Bruce Wayne as he deals with the loss of his friend Alfred while struggling to protect the city from the Joker.

Check out the official description of Curse Of The White Knight below and scroll up to see the trailer.

“In this explosive sequel to the critically acclaimed blockbuster BATMAN: WHITE KNIGHT from writer/artist Sean Murphy, The Joker recruits Azrael to help him expose a shocking secret from the Wayne family’s legacy—and to run Gotham City into the ground! As Batman rushes to protect the city and his loved ones from danger, the mystery of his ancestry unravels, dealing a devastating blow to the Dark Knight. Exciting new villains and unexpected allies will clash in this unforgettable chapter of the White Knight saga—and the truth about the blood they shed will shake Gotham to its core!”

Elsewhere, Blade Runner co-star Rutger Hauer has passed away at age 75
