Batman Begins in WB’s Batman: Year One, before the Dark Knight Rises


Batman Begins in WB's Batman: Year One, before the Dark Knight Rises

On October 18th, Warner Premiere brings one of the greatest comic book characters in one of the greatest comic book stories to the world of animation, all in the nifty little package of Batman: Year One. Chronicling the literal first year of The Dark Knight, Frank Miller and David Mazzucchelli created the tale 25 years ago for DC Comics, never knowing how popular it would be. In the time since, portions have been used again and again in comic books, in the Tim Burton and Christopher Nolan movies, and now in the Warner Bros. Blu-ray, DVD, OnDemand and digital download. Not only does this tell Batman’s origin, but also Gotham City police LT. James Gordon as well as Selina Kyle’s Catwoman.

The title is directed by Sam Liu and Lauren Montgomery, veterans of working with the animated DC Universe, with titles such as All-Star Superman, Green Lantern: Emerald Knights, and Justice League: Crisis on Two Earths on their collective resume. Working with MOI Animation, the group amped up the action and fight scenes for the world of cartoons, but also stayed very true and loyal to the source material. The DVD and Blu-ray also features a completely new tale – or tail, as it were – in the Catwoman animated short, staring the rise of Selina Kyle’s alternate identity.
