First Look at 'Son of Batman' Animated Movie

Posted by k4tzm4n (39551 posts) - - Show Bio

Justice League: Waris so close we can almost smell Darkseid (spoiler alert: he smells terrible), but now DC/Warner Bros. has released a first look at another animated movie: Son of Batman. Our sister site, TV Guide, has the exclusive trailer and we've taken some screen grabs for your eyes to enjoy (click here to view the trailer). Also, it looks like the video has hit youtube, so we've added it below.

Inspired by Grant Morrison and Andy Kubert's 2006 story, Son of Batman introduces Damian Wayne, the child of Bruce Wayne and Talia al Ghul, into the animated world. Deathstroke has allegedly killed Ra's al Ghul and aims to take over the League of Assassins. Talia reaches out to Batman for help and she reveals to him the two had a child. Here's the cast for this one.

  • Batman: Jason O'Mara
  • Damian Wayne: Stuart Allan
  • Talia: Morrena Baccarin
  • Ra's al Ghul: Giancarlo Esposito
  • Deathstroke: Thomas Gibson
  • Alfred Pennyworth: David McCallum
  • Man-Bat: Xander Berkeley

Son of Batman will come out this spring and Justice League: War will be available to purchase Feb. 4.

Jason O'Mara will do a good job as batman I think, but its always a little disappointing finding out Kevin Conroy won't be voicing batman

Pretty cool I'll have to back and read the arc because I don't remember most of the story, was Deathstroke even in it?

WHAATT?? Gustavo Fring to play Ra's al Guhl?!

I don't like Damian's voice. Otherwise it looks groovy.

HA! It's funny cause I only watched that episode recently. He kinda reminded me of Two Face from the Dark Knight.

Nope, but I do like that they change stuff around a bit for the movies.

Am I the only one here who's pissed at the fact that "Tim" has not been in a seingle animated movie so far, yet we are already animating Damian...

Oh well, on the bright side...DEATHSTROKE!!!!

I guess I need to read the book now.

WOO HOOOO

@2cool4fun:

Though kind of sad he's being portrayed as such an evil guy, yet on the other hand he killed Ra's kidnapped Talia & defeated a bunch of other people from the league of assassins. How cool is that? You better not let Damian best him in a 1v1!!

And that art & animation is so good, always happy to see art similar to YG.

@2cool4fun: The problem is the only story big enough that I can see them doing with Tim playing a major role is Identity Crisis and there's no way they'd do that story due to the nature of what happens to Sue. I mean Dick hasn't really been in a animated movie yet. Sure he was in Red Hood but frankly they could have cut him out entirely and that movie would have been the exact same.

This looks a lot better than I thought it would be. Kinda bummed that Ron PErlman isn't voicing Deathstroke but eh I'll deal. More importantly Gian Carlo Esposito is the voiceo of Ra's Al Ghul.

#29 Edited by batmannflash (6272 posts) - - Show Bio

this looks awesome!

I think Damian's voice is going to be annoying though

#30 Posted by Mucklefluga (2650 posts) - - Show Bio

I'm scared to hear Damian's voice.

#31 Edited by SilverPool (3462 posts) - - Show Bio

I'm excited.

#32 Edited by asjmooney (311 posts) - - Show Bio

F yes! So much more excited for this than for War.

#33 Posted by Lvenger (23943 posts) - - Show Bio

This does look better than I thought it would, all things considered with how crummy Justice League War looks. The voice actor for Batman sounds better here than he does in War. Not too shabby an adaptation of the source material though Deathstroke taking over is a bit of a stretch and a clear play on more action. Still, Damian looks awesome, it's well animated and it sounds good. I still need to read that Batman and Son arc though since it's the only thing of Morrison's Batman run I haven't read besides his New 52 Batman Inc.

waiting for the movie before i get hyped up. as long as it more damian than batman i will be a happy robinite

Its a cool idea.... But why.

#36 Posted by Nightwing_Beyond (169 posts) - - Show Bio

This movie is making my imagination run wild. I can't stop imagining scenes with Damian looking at Tim with disgust and calling him, "Drake" in a demeaning tone. I also imagine a little cut after the credits with Damian meeting Dick Grayson where D.G. says "We should team up sometime!", then in big letters, Battle for the Cowl in 2015 appears on screen. It won't happen but, I can dream.

@lvenger: Wait so deathstroke is not in the original comic?

I haven't actually read 'Batman and Son' yet. I do own Morrison's three Batman and Robin volumes though.

I like Damian, and from the trailer this movie looks like it's going to be great. Count me in.

#39 Edited by Lvenger (23943 posts) - - Show Bio

@2cool4fun: No he doesn't make any appearance whatsoever though he does show up later in Morrison's Batman run. But no, not in the source material this film is adapted from.

What about this trailer implies Deathstroke won't be given a good amount of respect? He's allegedly killed Ra's, yet we see Ra's blocking multiple bullets like a boss. Just because he'll probably lose in the end doesn't automatically equate to him being treated like a "whipping boy."

DC Animation never stops being AWESOME!

#43 Posted by Jonez120 (6935 posts) - - Show Bio

Looks great! My one complaint being that Ra's looks like Krusty the Clown...

#44 Posted by Avenging-X-Bolt (14759 posts) - - Show Bio

@2cool4fun: I feel the same way. I'd hold out for a Teen Titans movie with Tim in the lead,but they'd just base it on the New 52.

#45 Edited by PunyParker (14950 posts) - - Show Bio

Why is Batman in his JL:War look...aka New52?!...

And when are we gonna see the Arkham an.movie footage....cant wait for this.

#46 Posted by Guardiandevil83 (7355 posts) - - Show Bio

DC hasnt slacked once in their animated films unless you count Last Frontier. So im looking forward to this.

#47 Posted by Oscars94 (2981 posts) - - Show Bio

YES!

#48 Posted by fallbrigade (133 posts) - - Show Bio

Sooo no more Kevin Conroy as Bats? :( :(

Excited about this though, for sure!

#49 Edited by Deranged Midget (18231 posts) - - Show Bio

Jason O'Mara is the new voice of Batman eh? I can definitely dig it!

#50 Posted by Giovanni_Di_Guerra (23 posts) - - Show Bio

Every now and then I complain that DC are always making Batman movies, but then I remember, it's cos they're just so good! Can't wait for this
