With their home release rapidly approaching, Warner Home Video has unleashed the first clip from Batman: Year One, the next animated title in their popular line-up. Check it out below and sound off with your thoughts. The film will arrive on Blu-ray, DVD and On Demand on October 18, 2011 and also be available for download on sites like iTunes, Zune, Xbox 360, PS3 and Video Unlimited on October 11, 2011.

The animated film will feature the voices of stars Bryan Cranston ("Breaking Bad"), Ben McKenzie ("Southland," "The O.C."), Eliza Dushku ("Dollhouse," "Buffy the Vampire Slayer") and Katee Sackhoff ("Battlestar Galactica").Three-time Emmy Award winner Cranston gives voice to young Jim Gordon, while McKenzie makes his animated voiceover debut as Bruce Wayne/Batman. Dushku and Sackhoff fill the roles of Selina Kyle/Catwoman and Detective Sarah Essen, respectively. Alex Rocco (The Godfather) is the voice of crime lord Carmine Falcone.

Animation master Bruce Timm is executive producer of Batman: Year One. Lauren Montgomery (Superman/Batman: Apocalypse) and Sam Liu (All-Star Superman) directed from a script penned by Academy Award nominee Tab Murphy (Gorillas in the Mist, Superman/Batman: Apocalypse).

Plot Concept: Batman: Year One is based on the landmark 1987 DC Comics titles from 12-time Eisner Award winner Frank Miller and illustrator David Mazzucchelli. The film depicts young Bruce Wayne’s return to Gotham City in his first attempts to fight injustice as a costumed vigilante. The playboy billionaire chooses the guise of a giant bat to combat crime, creates an early bond with a young Lieutenant James Gordon (who is already battling corruption from inside the police department), inadvertently plays a role in the birth of Catwoman, and helps to bring down a crooked political system that infests Gotham.

eh, dont they know conroy should be the only person voicing batman, that was very underwhelming

Shut up about Conroy. This is a younger Batman anyway and wouldn't fit.

aucturas 9/22/2011 11:33:30 AM

weather you like conroy or not that kid from the oc is no batman

If you ever saw 'Gotham Knights' there is on segement where Conroy does Batman/Bruce Wayne and it really doesn't go over good. Conroy's voice on a young Bruce Wayne is a very akward.

looks awesome I can't wait till it comes out!

I really did not like that as well as other clips I've seen recently. The voices do not match up well. Which brings up an interesting point. Not many live actord can be as good as professional voice actors, and vice versa.

 Agree with Mr JBE.  Conroy doesn't work as a young Bats.  The voice is strange but again it's Batman Year One.  I'm down for this one.

I think it's poorly animated; colors seem blurry and too much like anime (not the look of the characters but just the overall look). I don't like the voice for Batman either. I would have rather have Jeremy Sisto voice a young Batman; he did a great job on the Justice League New Frontier DVD and that was a younger Batman. Conroy might not be great for a young Bruce/Batman, but the guy they have doing this one is awful. I doubt I'll add this to my collection.

 I'm with Aucturas.  Conroy is the only Batman.  And young Batman or no, Ben McKenzie isn't it.
