As part of its promotional tie-in with The Dark Knight, Comcast is offering a free segment of the animated Batman Gotham Knight movie through its OnDemand service.

The segment, one of six that comprise the film, is titled "Field Test." It is written by Jordan Goldberg, associate producer of The Dark Knight.

Here's how Comcast describes the segment:

"Writer Jordan Goldberg showcases the incredible arsenal Batman commands and reveals that there are some things even Batman won't do in the pursuit of justice."

The technology involves a electromagnetic pulse that would allow Batman to deflect incoming bullets.

In addition to Kevin Conroy, who provides the voice for Batman in all the segments, the cast of "Field Test" includes Corey Burton as The Russian, Will Friedle as Anton, George Newburn as Guido, Ron Paulsen as Maroni and Kevin Michael Richardson as Lucius Fox.

The film will be released on DVD and Blu-ray on July 8.

As part of its tie-in with The Dark Knight, Comcast is also offering featurettes and trailers from the movie. The campaign is similar to Comcast's Spider-Man 3 campaign from 2007.
