Cast List and First Images from D.C.’s Animated Batman: Year One

9 Comments

There are rumors of a “Batman: The Dark Knight Returns” animated movie in the future, but until that happens, we’ll just have to make due with Frank Miller’s other Batman masterpiece, “Batman: Year One”. The original direct-to-DVD animated movie tracks the first-year crusade of a young (and at times bumbling) Batman, while also at the same time chronicling the rise and fall of his most important partner-in-justice, Jim Gordon.

THR has your full cast list for the upcoming “Batman: Year One”, including the first two images from the animated movie, set to be released by DC Entertainment and Warner Bros. Animation sometime this year.

Bryan Cranston (“Breaking Bad”) is voicing a pre-Commissioner Jim Gordon, while Brian McKenzie (“Southland”) will be bringing Bruce Wayne/Batman to life. “Dollhouse’s” Eliza Dushku will fill in for Selina Kyle, aka Catwoman, with “Battlestar Galactica’s” Katee Sackhoff voicing Detective Sarah Essen, Gordon’s partner … and perhaps something more.

The movie will be based on the story arc by Frank Miller and artist David Mazzucchelli, with D.C. animation veterans Lauren Montgomery and Sam Liu directing from a script by Tab Murphy.

    This is a very nice cast. I’m interested in hearing a young Bruce/Batman and Gordon. Dusku as Kyle (prostitute version =-D) is perfect.

      The cast is really strong. The art looks really good too. Can’t wait!

    Yup, the art looks great.

    I love Bryan Cranston!!. Is great how he passed his “Malcom in the Middle” days. I thought he was going to be stuck with the character forever but he’s amazong in Mad Man.
