The trailer for “The Oath: A Batman Fan Film” has arrived.

The first look at the upcoming Batman fan-production is here. Set in the “Burtonverse” one week before Batman (1989), the short film stars Jerry Morgan as Gotham City Police Sergeant Frank Kelly, and co-stars Oz Keenum, Chris Konke, Michael Stumbo, and Guillermo Mejía as the Caped Crusader.

The Oath is directed by Johnny K. , whose debut short film, “The Killer of Grassy Ridge”, was selected for more than 50 festivals worldwide, winning Best U.S. Short Film, Best Debut, Best Director, Best Cinematography, and more.

Following nine months of pre-production, principal photography on The Oath kicked off in November 2021, with post-production ongoing throughout 2022.

“It’s been a long time coming,” said Director Johnny K. “As a Batman fan, this has been a dream project to bring to life, and we hope people enjoy watching it as much as we enjoyed creating it.”

The Oath is scheduled for release on the Kaotica Studios YouTube channel in December 2022.
