After huge fan fare at WonderCon 2014, Warner Brothers has released a cast photo from the panel and a new clip from Son of Batman. Check out “Thug” below. I hope the hype on this one is true. I cannot wait for May 6th!

Synopsis: Son of Batman, the 20th DC Universe Animated Original Movie, will have its World Premiere as the featured event at WonderCon on Friday, April 18 in the Arena starting at 6:00pm.

Already saw this. It was a C at best. Not really very continuitous in the timeline. Batman looks 30ish and yet Robin is Nightwing already? huh. It was only okay.

I agree Lazarus. It was enjoyable, but certainly not DCs best animated film. it was great to see Damian in a film and the opening scene was pretty good, but thats about the extent of the excitement for this one.

Saw it yesterday. I too agree, it was not one of the better DC animated films. It looked rushed and not well thought out. Yes, Batman seemed too young, and the Damien character, despite the writers best effort to give and or infer some backstory  to make the boy seem interesting, was a failure.

 

I know it's just a story and animation, but 4' 4" 64 lb 8 year olds do not beat up 6'8" 300 lb professional adult male assassins.

Muenster, You beat me to the punch(pun intended)! I was going to say that there's no way an 8 year old has the force to knock a huge man out of the window - he lacks strength and mass! The boy would've bounced off his chest and landed on his ass if he even made it that far in the fight.

Btw, love your cheese! Lol

Of the DC Animated movies this one was far from the best. In fact, I'd rank it as one of the poorest efforts. Such potential. Such a failure.

Damian can be a great character. Nightwing is a great character. Both wasted in this weird effort.

This was not a good Batman movie.

A story detaling Dick Grayson becoming Nightwing would have been far better source material.

This felt like a digital version of bad anime from the 70s
