Batman: Year One Trailer Crusades Online


I would normally call this a teaser trailer, but since you usually don’t get that many trailers, teaser or otherwise with D.C.’s line of original animated movies, it’s probably the only one we’ll get. The Sam Liu and Lauren Montgomery-directed film will be based on Frank Miller’s “Batman: Year One” storyline, which chronicles the first year (and indeed, the first few days, even) of Batman’s crusade against crime, which just happens to coincide with a certain cop name Gordon’s arrival in Gotham City, and how the two men’s paths eventually cross.

“Southland’s” Ben McKenzie provides the voice of Bruce Wayne/Batman, while the ever-busy Bryan Cranston is Gordon. “Battlestar Galactica’s” Katee Sackhoff will play Detective Sarah Essen, Gordon’s partner and, perhaps, something more.

Rounding out the cast is Eliza Dushku, who is voicing Selina Kyle/Catwoman, who will also get her own very special 15-minute short accompanying “Batman: Year One”, due out on October 18, 2011 from Warner Home Video on Blu-ray, DVD, OnDemand and for download.

    Not enough trailers and extras is my biggest complaint about the DC ANIMATED films. Other than that I love them and this looks to be no different. The Catwoman short is a bonus though. Wonder if it’ll be a showcase short. They need to do a Flash animated “Rogues War” movie or something. And a Kingdom Come-esque story.

    Looks good. I’m sure I’ll buy it once the Best Buy price drops. But, DC Animated how about some Golden Age stories for us old timers? That I would love to see. For myself, heroes work best in a ’40s setting. Sure, maybe not as dark or edgy but, that is okay too.
