Batman: Year One available now from Warner Premiere


Batman: Year One coming this October

Warner Home Video’s PG-13 animated adaptation of Batman: Year One hits the shelves this October 18th on both DVD and Blu Ray format. Both versions come with a 15 minute Catwoman short film. Batman: Year One originally appeared in issues 404 to 407 of DC Comic’s Batman, back in 1987. Written by Frank Miller and illustrated by David Mazzucchelli, the story arc recounts the first few experiences of Bruce Wayne as he returns to Gotham after 12 years of training (in the sense that the playboy millionaire has proven that if you have enough money in your pockets, both martial arts and science are super easy to learn). Batman: Year One is considered as one of the finest examples of spandex-clad superhero stories done right, as it perfectly captured “the grit, realism, and humanity of Jim Gordon and Batman.”

The animated adaptation will be faithful to the comic, and Bruce Timm will serve as an executive producer, while Lauren Montgomery (Superman/Batman: Apocalypse) and Sam Liu (All-star Superman) will co-direct. Script is penned by Tab Murphy (Superman/Batman: Apocalypse, Gorillas in the Mist)

Batman/Bruce Wayne will be voiced by Benjamin McKenzie, James Gordon is done by Bryan Cranston, Katee Sackhoff is Detective Sarah Essen, and the former alt-vampire slayer Eliza Dushku will be doing the voices of Catwoman/Selina Kyle.
