Having grown up on Batman: the Animated Series, I have to admit that the upcoming Batman: Year One is as exciting a release to me as The Dark Knight Rises. I just have a soft-spot for the Caped Crusader in ink and paint, I guess. If you haven’t heard about it yet, Year One is the DC Universe Animated Original Movie adaptation of the classic Frank Miller comic book story of the same name.
It’s being released directly to Blu-ray, DVD, OnDemand and for download on October 18. The voice casting is pretty great: Benjamin McKenzie as Bruce Wayne, Bryan Cranston as Jim Gordon, Eliza Dushku as Catwoman and Katee Sackhoff as Sarah Essen. Dushku also stars in a Catwoman short included with the film.
