'Son of Batman' Release Date and Cover Art Revealed

Feast your eyes on the cover art for DC's upcoming animated movie. Also, find out when it'll be yours to own.

We've watched Son of Batman's trailer over and over, and now we know when we can get our hands on the blu-ray/DVD or download a digital copy. A release date has been set for May 6 and DC Entertainment/Warner Bros. Animation have also offered a first look at the very appealing cover art. If you haven't watched the trailer yet (shame on you), click here to immediately fix that and then come back to see what you'll likely buy early May. For everyone else, check out the pretty awesome cover art.

Batman is shocked to learn that not only does he have a son, but the boy’s mother is Talia, the daughter of the international overlord, Ra’s Al Ghul. Nevertheless, the Dark Knight and his willful boy (as the new Robin) becomes uneasy allies when Talia enlists a team of ninja man-bats on a criminal enterprise with international consequences.

Son of Batman is inspired by Batman and Son, a story released in 2006 by Grant Morrison and Andy Kubert. So, who's buying this on May 6?

I thought after Warner primer was dissolved that the animated films would slow down. But it appears to be the opposite. Which is fine with me.

Yeah, Assault on Arkham is also slated for 2014. Justice League: War teases another movie, too, but it's unclear when we could see that one. I'd guess very late 2014 or 2015.

@k4tzm4n: Assault on arkham what's that based on? Or is it an original? They seem to be putting the pedal to the metal.

All I know is it's supposed to take place in the Arkham video game universe.

Can't wait for the movie, I loved Batman and Son, hopefully this will be just as good.

Wonder if Damian will be the figurine for the Best Buy edition.

I may not get it on May 6, but I'll definitely be buying it. I don't care about Justice League: War but it seems that their Batman and Superman animated features have all been great (not counting Superman: Unbound).

Man, the trailer was incredible. I'm really stoked to see this!

Beautiful.

I think this is going to be really good, I'm just not a big fan of Damian's voice.

Why didn't they released in April, that's Batman's anniversary month?! Oh well, hey it looks good, can't wait. Tumblr kinda of spoiled Justice League: War for me (aka the Barry and Hal bromance).

This should be good. Just thinking back, this story line actually got me reading Bats semi-regularly since Hush, so I can't wait.
