Then, Michael Uslan, executive producer of all Batman films since 1989, took to Facebook with this post:

It looks like with the unexpected reveal, Uslan simply chose to acknowledge it with an official confirmation.

Never officially carried the Elseworlds banner, it is considered the first title in the imprint. The imprint produced stories surrounding DC characters placed in different places and/or different time periods. The stories take place in a continuity separate from DC canon.

Written by Brian Augustyn and Mike Mignola, Gotham by Gaslight is a one-shot that follows the Batman in the late 19th century as he encounters Jack the Ripper.

Check out Batman and Harley Quinn for a preview, which hits digital shelves on August 15 and physical shelves on August 29.
