Dark Knight, Dark City

Batman met Gordon on the rooftop - the Riddler was loose. A girl bearing the first clue fell to her death in front of them. Riddler toyed with him at the first location and escaped while Batman saved a would-be victim. He then kidnapped four newborns and waited for Batman at a blood bank. Riddler again escaped, leaving Batman covered in blood. He recovered the first baby, along with a riddle. It led him to a graveyard where a corpse rose from its grave.
