VIDEO: TRUE DETECTIVE Opening Credits get a BATMAN Twist

Short of a comic spin-off, this is probably the only time we'll get to cover the excellent HBO crime series! Josh Newman has put together a video called "World's Greatest True Detective", which imagines a Gotham type tv show set to The Handsome Family's True Detective intro music.

Pretty cool. How awesome would it be if Fox's Gotham took a page out of True Detective's book for their opening credits?

Glory!!!! This is epic. It'd be cool of GOTHAM had an opening similar to this. Absolutely cool. Cool shit!

Gotta watch True Detective now. Heard its as addictive as The Killing. An epic murder mystery anthology

True Detective is AMAZING.

Best 8 weeks ever.
npamusic - 3/17/2014, 6:53 PM
That was epic. Batman approves

McGee - 3/17/2014, 6:53 PM
I like how they excluded Bob Kane from the credits. Hahaha!!!

Say what you will about him, but he did draw Detective Comics #27. But yeah, his name should be below Bill's.

Now I want this TV show.
marvel72 - 3/17/2014, 6:55 PM
brilliant parody from a brilliant show.

*kisses Ror for bringing this to our attention*

HBO seriously needs to make a live action batman TV show. Could work a whole lot better than movies
JamesMan - 3/17/2014, 7:05 PM
True Detective was [frick]ing awesome. I just setup my HBOGO so now I can rewatch as many times as I want!!!
iZinDiaN - 3/17/2014, 7:10 PM
True Detective was one of the best shows I have ever seen. Brilliant stuff. And this video.. just epic.
Bloodraven - 3/17/2014, 7:11 PM
That was great, but I don't think the song fits with Gotham. The reason it works so well with True Detective is that it's set in Erath, Louisiana which is this black hole of a redneck town that is miles from anything.

Seeing Batman and Nightwing diving off the rooftop together reaffirms my need to see that shit in live action! Awesome video.

True detective is excellent. This was awesome! !
Batmaniac - 3/17/2014, 7:24 PM
You see, this is what Gotham should be, but instead, it's shaping up to be the crapfest It's destined to be.
Kyos - 3/17/2014, 7:27 PM
That's damn awesome! :D

Still not completely sure how I feel about the True Detective finale. I loved most of the show, but I feel the end could have been handled better at certain parts. But I won't discuss this here, cause many seem to still want to watch it. Which I recommend, it's pretty damn good!
airbeyonder18 - 3/17/2014, 7:28 PM
That was FANTASTIC!

I was almost waiting for the show to come on at the end haha...
batz11 - 3/17/2014, 7:29 PM
That was awesome!

Most important episode of True Detective, ep2...we call that A.D. = After Daddario...changed many lives...

You have to listen to the song while looking at the images. Just look and listen when Rha's al Ghul and Selina Kyle are onscreen.
Melkaticox - 3/17/2014, 7:38 PM
Wait...why can't you cover any True Detective stories? Game of Thrones isn't a comic book.
Let's not mention all the random videogame news.
ckal - 3/17/2014, 7:43 PM
True Detective is so [frick]ing awesome.
batz11 - 3/17/2014, 7:43 PM
Sid, you can take a break from your vigorous whackin' "hobby", TD is well worth the healing time, your unit will thank you!

One of the best openings in any show. Music and imagery was perfect with the tone. Hope season 2 can live up to the first!
MrSotoMan - 3/17/2014, 7:48 PM
Oh my god......that was incredible!
superbatspiderman - 3/17/2014, 7:49 PM
True Detective was a really good show with some of the best acting and dialogue that I have ever seen on TV. I hope they can do the same again on season 2. This video was awesome.
TheIncredibleHulksta - 3/17/2014, 8:02 PM
This shit...really? True Detective did something inventive now people want the TV and film industry to rape the idea to death. Why can't we keep shit as an auteur's idea. Whoever did TD's opening sequence did a great artistic interpretation of that story. I don't think anyone can or should impersonate that shit. Be original, that's what made True Detective so memorable in the first place.

Gotham will be shit. Arrow is shit. Flash might be shit. Don't devalue the only show I actually enjoy on TV.

MrSotoMan - 3/17/2014, 8:16 PM
@TheIncredibleHulksta- Sensitive much?
Batman5 - 3/17/2014, 8:20 PM
Td was freaking EPIC. I mean just EPIC. Ohh why do I have to wait for season two? Not fair.
Murderball - 3/17/2014, 8:21 PM
Nicely done. However, "Created by Bill Finger"... That's where you lose all credibility/respect from me. Must be another Bill Finger sympathizer like that hack Chris Sims.

You obsessive idiots, like seriously, IT'S JUST A SHOW. Get over yourself I mean literally you act like it's you're show that you've worked on for so long.

It was just something a FAN DID. It's not happening forreal, WB didn't post it, and even if WB posted it, they have every right to since HBO is owned by Time Warner which has connections with Warner Bros.

Like seriously get a grip, it was fan-made over a fan-fiction idea. Get the [frick] over yourself, it was bound to happen at one point since I am sure many comic book fans wish that this level of dialogue and direction would be on something like Batman or hell any type of comic book TV show.

Stop acting like the show is yours, cause in reality IT'S NOT and I'm sure the producers don't give a shit or the writers since they know it's just a FAN SHORT. Nothing else.

this is awesome... true detective is awesome
