Batman Year One Animated Movie to Have Catwoman Short

The Daily Blam! is reporting that, after the next original DC animated movie Green Lantern: Emerald Knights, Warner Home Video will release Batman: Year One, based on the classic Frank Miller graphic novel. No release date was given; since Emerald Knights comes out in June, it would be closer to the end of 2011 or spring 2012, I’m guessing.

As expected, the accompanying DC Showcase short films are done; they have no plans to do more since the collection Superman/Shazam!: The Return of Black Adam didn’t do well. But first, there’s one exception: a Catwoman short to go with the Batman: Year One movie.

I’m not sure why the studio was expecting to be able to sell the shorts on their own; I thought it made much more sense to use them as bonus features to drive sales of the Blu-rays and Special Edition DVDs and as a way to judge interest in other DCU characters. They were my favorite extra, anyway.
