Here’s your first look at the “Jonah Hex” showcase short that will be showing up with D.C.’s original DVD movie, “Batman: Under the Red Hood”. The animated short will feature the voices of Thomas Jane, who lost out on the live-action movie to Josh Brolin, and includes Linda Hamilton, Michelle Trachtenberg and Michael Rooker. Not entirely sure if the “madam” mentioned below in the official synopsis (via Comics Continuum) is the same character as the one Megan Fox is playing in the live-action movie, but then again, I’m not even sure if the animated short will have anything to do with the movie.
The tough-as-nails bounty hunter Jonah Hex always gets his man – until someone else gets to him first – in this case a murderous madam who wants to steal more than just her bounty from Jonah Hex.
The short is written by the legendary Joe Lansdale and directed by Joaquim dos Santos.
“Batman: Under the Red Hood” opens up in stores July 27.
