DC and Warners have been releasing animated versions of various story arcs from the Justice League to Superman and Teen Titans. They’re adding to that list with Frank Miller’s Batman: Year One arc. Miller’s work on Batman reinvented the character in the 1980s and inspired much of what we currently see as Batman in the Nolan movies and in comics.
It should be interesting to see how they adapt Miller’s story and David Mazzucchelli’s art to create this animated version.
The flick does have some notable voices in it. Bryan Cranston is Lt. James Gordon, Eliza Dushku shows up as Catwoman, and Katee Sackhoff is Det. Sarah Essen. The Batman is played by Ben McKenzie.
Batman: Year One will be direct to DVD and released on October 18th, 2011.
