First Look at the Red Hood from Batman: Under the Red Hood

The LATimes has your first look at the Red Hood from the new D.C. animated movie due out in 2010, “Batman: Under the Red Hood”. (Though IMDB.com calls it just “Batman: Under the Hood”.) Besides giving us our first look at the violent vigilante Red Hood, the article also offers up a list of the voice actors for the upcoming movie: Bruce Greenwood (“Star Trek”) as Batman, “Supernatural’s” Jensen Ackles as Red Hood, Neil Patrick Harris (“How I Met Your Mother”) as Nightwing, John DiMaggio (“Futurama”) as the Joker and Jason Isaacs (the Harry Potter films) as Ra’s Al Ghul.

Based on Judd Winick’s Batman comic storyline, “Red Hood” finds Batman battling the Red Hood, a violent, gun-toting vigilante who cleans up the streets of Gotham with blood. That doesn’t sit well with Batman, who has to take him down.

Brandon Vietti, who directed the less-than-well-received “Superman Doomsday”, will direct “Red Hood” with Bruce Timm handling the art.

    WHOA!!!!! I really hope they keep it close to the story with the reveal of who Red Hood actually is. As for the voices. WOW!! Andrea Romano has done it again. Bruce Greenwood as Batman? Really? I mean I could definitely see him voicing Superman after seeing him in “Star Trek” as Captain Pike, but I’m not upset with him voicing Batman. John Dimagio as Joker, now THAT I can’t wait to hear, and Jason Isaacs as Ra’s Al Ghul. PERFECT!!! My only issue is, as much as I love Timm’s art, it took so loong to get away from his style…why are they going back?

      you mean show everyone that … RedHood is just the joker!

        Uh nope you’re wrong here. That ain’t Joker under that Red Hood. This is based on the return of Jason Todd. That’s the look he was rocking when he first came back. He’s currently still going by the name. He has a differnt look now though.

    “Brandon Vietti, who directed the less-than-well-received “Superman Doomsday”, will direct “Red Hood””
    ruins it for me.
    “with Bruce Timm handling the art.”
    will at least make it worth watching on mute.
