New Still From SON OF BATMAN Animated Movie Offers Best Look At 'Nightwing' Yet

Hot on the heels of the extremely successful Justice League: War animated feature comes an adaptation of Grant Morrison and Andy Kubert's Batman & Son. Hit the jump to check out our best look yet at Dick Grayson/Nightwing in the highly anticipated movie...

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 voice cast features Jason O'Mara as Batman/Bruce Wayne; Stuart Allan as Damian; Morena Baccarin as Talia; Giancarlo Esposito as Ra's Al Ghul; David McCallum Alfred Pennyworth; Xander Berkeley as Kirk Langstrom (aka Man-Bat); and Thomas Gibson will play Deathstroke. Son of Batman comes out May 6th, 2014 on DVD, Blu-ray and for digital download and will have its world premiere at WonderCon over Easter weekend in Anaheim, Calif.

Nice tits nightwing
wookiefit - 3/15/2014, 1:21 PM
Looks kinda like the Young Justice Nightwing with the armour and shoulder pieces.
Klone - 3/15/2014, 1:23 PM
Look like the YJ version.
elcaballerooscuro92 - 3/15/2014, 1:25 PM
way to replace tim darke with nightwing.
Interestein - 3/15/2014, 1:25 PM
I'm not liking the look of it. I'm glad we have a cohesive DCAU2 now though.
Battabing - 3/15/2014, 1:29 PM
It looks like YJ Nightwing because it's the same character designer doing these movies as did YJ.
SonofBatman - 3/15/2014, 1:30 PM
Can't wait too bad there's no red robin in this one.
Ineedrevelation - 3/15/2014, 1:30 PM
I'm fine. Ya'll are nitpicking as usual. He'll be dope. The movie's about Damian anyway.
batcheeks8 - 3/15/2014, 1:35 PM
Ugh why is everyone so huge post-Flashpoint Paradox
BlackIceJoe - 3/15/2014, 1:38 PM
It's good to see Nightwing in blue. I am not a fan of him being in the red. So if by some chance Nightwing is in Batman/Superman: Worlds Finest I hope they use the blue suit.
batcheeks8 - 3/15/2014, 1:38 PM
The head-chest ratio is ridiculous.. sorry that's not Nightwing

thebearjew - 3/15/2014, 1:42 PM
nightwings head looks tiny
thebearjew - 3/15/2014, 1:43 PM
ya guess they're squeezing out tim :(
THEDARKKNIGHT1939 - 3/15/2014, 1:47 PM
Looks like they took the Young Justice Nightwing, chopped off his head, and put a new one on
QuiLL13 - 3/15/2014, 1:58 PM
Small head
cdpacheco89 - 3/15/2014, 2:02 PM
I don't think this falls in line with their new animated universe though. I don't like his hair
bs77 - 3/15/2014, 2:38 PM
The animation style from Young Justice is about as "anime" as I can handle... this looks ridiculous. Nothing against Asian people, but watching distinctly American superheroes in a manga style just doesn't jive for me... Although, the old Macross/Robotech animation might fit well. At least humans in Macross had normal proportions, and the detail was phenomenal... speaking of Macross, wasn't a Captain Harlot 3D anime film supposed to come out???
Gyasiman - 3/15/2014, 2:38 PM
These movie usually are amazing, but what's with the body's being so freaken disproportionate? I really don't understand that. Why not just make it look good.
CaptainAmerica31 - 3/15/2014, 2:41 PM
Watching " wanted" and realizing Star-Lord banged Professor X's GF
batcheeks8 - 3/15/2014, 2:44 PM

Which aspect of the Young Justice animation style is "anime" to you? I'm honestly curious.

Sweet dc animation
TheGoddamnPeel - 3/15/2014, 3:45 PM
It looks alright, it's just to me, something's lacking...I can't quite put my finger on it. He sort of looks out of place to me, and has a strange head.

I don't know whether it's because WB are trying to make him look so similar to YJ Nightwing but have radically changed the hair, or whether it's because he isn't meant to be in this storyline in the first place.

Still looking forward to this movie though.
TheSoulEater - 3/15/2014, 3:54 PM
Bad ass
m0th3r - 3/15/2014, 4:46 PM
@MrQuantumMechanic MASSIVE agreement. DC Animation is so damn good. Even the JLA Adventures..which is basically a rebooted Super Friends...was also very very fun (im old enough to have watched it as a kid).

Marvels recent Punisher/Widow toon is better then anything since Hulk vs. movies...and its still very 'meh'. How the F*&^ can you be owned by the biggest animation studio EVER and not have rocking cartoons..
NebulaFields - 3/15/2014, 4:55 PM
eh, could be way better.
Doctorwho22 - 3/15/2014, 5:02 PM
This looks good!
Epicboy - 3/15/2014, 5:40 PM
Looks like Aladdin with supermans chest
BATMANx - 3/15/2014, 5:48 PM
I Thought they would go with The new 52 outfit
MightyZeus - 3/15/2014, 5:50 PM
Not really a fan of the animation in this.
Klone - 3/15/2014, 5:53 PM
Good God I'm reminded now of how much I thought JLW sucked a rotten dick.
ALmazing - 3/15/2014, 7:26 PM
Isn't Nightwing's new 52 outfit red and black? How well did JLW movie do?
MagicalGoat - 3/15/2014, 8:27 PM
Damn I miss YJ!
DCfan638 - 3/16/2014, 1:25 AM
Not a fan of New 52 JL
New 52 Batman didn't go through any changes from pre-Flashpoint, except suit

I miss Bruce Timm..........when is he taking over again?!!? 2015? 2016? In time for BvS, hopefully.

Marvel fans forget where modern CBM interest stems from:
George Reeves (I loved that Lois)
1960s Batman TV,
1970s Wonder Woman TV,
1980s Superman movies,
1990s Batman movies, Flash TV, Timmverse begins
2000s Timmverse, Batman movies

Timmverse has a lot of credit for interest in the 15-to-35-year-old watching audience range. I personally feel that if it wasn't for the Timmverse, this CBM boom would have never happened, and I love how DC is carrying on the cartoons with full speed, even if they have shifted to the new "DCAU2".
TheDemonsHead - 3/16/2014, 1:30 AM
Y'all complaining like some bitches

The only real concern is that Nightwing outweighs Batman in this, he looks like Superman
