Son of Batman - First Look at Animated Feature

Postby Red_Robin » Jan 20th, 2014, 6:37 pm


Obviously 2014 is going to be a huge year for Batman (we hear that it’s a special birthday year) and we have two Batman animated movies releasing in the next twelve months.

The second is the first animated feature to be set in the Arkhamverse (yay!), but the first one will be a loose adaptation of Grant Morisson and Andy Kubert’s Batman & Son arc from 2006.

Check out the trailer on our NEWS BLOG.

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.


Seriously? No Tim Drake?

The animation looks fantastic.













The fact that Tim doesn't seem to be in it is disappointing. And I really like what I've heard of O'Mara's Batman, but I'm surprised that they're using him again, the only Batman actor that's been used more than once in these films is Conroy (until now I guess). Talia's casting is perfect.

Looking forward to it, immensely.

Thanks for posting RR.

Edit: Just watched the trailer. Looks like they've changed the story quite a bit, and Damian sounds kinda... strange. Hopefully it still turns out great though.

This looks really cool, I can't wait for it to come out. Hopefully when it does Damian will make his return!

Not bad. Not bad at all!!

Would've been nice with Tim and Dick etc. but I'm fine with it as long as Batman, Talia and Damian are in it.

I like the inclusion of Deathstroke! He's a badass and more than a worthy opponent to Batman and Robin!

Does anyone else think they're starting to get really lazy with the art styles in these films? In several of them it looks like they actually re-used designs from other films, despite there being no continuity whatsoever. Quite a handful of the earlier films looked like they were using the exact same character designs as Young Justice, and this film looks like it's re-using Batman's design from Justice League: War.

Looks awesome.

O'Mara sounds a lot better here than in that clip of JL: War.

I kinda like the fact that they did not include Tim , not only does it mean that there is no one to punch Damian in the face when he gets to cocky (xD) , it also gives the writer the chance to make Batmans son a more heroic character right away . They even let him fight characters like Bronze Tiger and Deathstroke , guys who would have most likely wiped the floor with him in the old and the new continuity .

And I think Damians voice is fine . Makes him sound more like a regular kid , which fits pretty well with this version of the character .

AAAAAY I CANT WANT IT LOOKS GREAT!
Loving the animation, seems a lot different on how it happens in the comics but damn, I'm exited

Shame about tim though. Maybe he'll be like a guest appearance.

Damian's voice makes no sense at all; he should have an English or Middle Eastern accent - suburban American makes about as much sense as...something stupid.

If you ask me Damian should have no accent at all , its not like he has been raised in England or in an Middle Eastern Country. He traveled with Talia to one League of Assassins base to another , so if he is in America he will most likely talk American English .
I heard someone trying to give Damian a Middle Eastern Accent once and it sounded really really dumb ....
