Son of Batman Next DC Original Animated Movie
January 25, 2014

The next original DC animated movie from Warner Bros. Home Entertainment will be Son of Batman, to be released May 6.

The movie is based on Batman and Son, the comic story by Grant Morrison and Andy Kubert, and the film is directed by Ethan Spaulding, from a screenplay by Joe R. Lansdale adapting a story by James Robinson.

Voice cast includes:

  • Jason O’Mara as Batman (the same role he played in Justice League: War)
  • Stuart Allan as Damian, Batman’s violent son
  • Morena Baccarin as Talia, Damian’s mother
  • Giancarlo Esposito as Ra’s Al Ghul, Talia’s father
  • David McCallum as Alfred
  • Xander Berkeley as Man-Bat
  • Thomas Gibson as Deathstroke

The official synopsis is as follows:

Hidden atop a secret mountain stronghold lies the League of Shadows and its fearless leader, Ra’s al Ghul. Together with his equally dangerous daughter Talia, he oversees a trained army of assassins with plans for global domination. But an uprising from within the league now threatens to shift the balance of power and sends Talia and her young son, Damian, fleeing to Gotham City. With assassins on their trail, Talia seeks the protection of Batman, who, unbeknownst to him, is the boy’s father. With his son in tow, Batman wages war against the villain Deathstroke and the League of Shadows, all while teaching his headstrong boy that one can’t fight crime by becoming a criminal. With help from Gotham’s finest, including Commissioner Gordon and Nightwing, Batman will soon discover that his son and most trusted ally are one and the same!

The extras are planned to include:

  • Strange Blood Ties Damian Wayne
  • The Fang and the Demon Head: The League of Assassins
  • Designing the Characters with Phil Bourassa
  • A Sneak Peek at Batman: Assault on Arkham (the DCU animated movie following Son of Batman, based on the video game)
  • Masterpiece: Frank Miller’s The Dark Knight Returns Sneak Peek
  • From the DC Comics Vault: Batman Beyond, “Out of the Past”
  • From the DC Comics Vault: Batman: The Brave and the Bold, “The Knights of Tomorrow!”
  • From the DC Comics Vault: Batman: The Animated Series, “Showdown”
  • From the DC Comics Vault: Batman: The Brave and the Bold, “Sidekicks Assemble!”

Son of Batman will debut at WonderCon, the convention held over Easter Weekend 2014 in Anaheim, California.

Can’t say I’m impressed by adding Deathstroke or relegating Talia to damsel-in-distress.
