By Josh Wilding - 2/1/2014
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.

TopCat89 - 2/1/2014, 9:23 AM
Hahaha title got me too....probs won't hear/see anything for a while after Lex/Alfred announcement....let the dust settle

WB can make some great animated movies.
BlackIceJoe - 2/1/2014, 9:44 AM
It will be interesting to see what they do with this movie. I really can't wait to see a Robin that is more dangerous then Batman.

@TopCat89

I too wonder what the next big announcement will be. I wonder if it will be who is playing Nightwing and Oracle or Mercy Graves and Hope Taya Lex's bodyguards.
DukeAcureds - 2/1/2014, 9:50 AM
I can't wait to see a Jesse Eisenberg that is more dangerous than an army of terraforming aliens.
DukeAcureds - 2/1/2014, 9:51 AM
But, yeah, this is gonna be awesome. I'm so happy this exists.
I'm kinda hoping that they work in a Batman Begins-esque origin. Bruce training with Ra's would give this particular story gravitas.
DukeAcureds - 2/1/2014, 9:53 AM
It would also give Damien time to grow up, if Bruce and Talia got it on, before Bruce returned to Gotham. Instead of Damien being grown in a tank.

@BlackIceJoe

I'm hoping for a photo of Bats and Supes "suited up" in their new costumes....but i also hope to win the lottery.....however they are filming soon, if that means anything in terms of promoting the movie....

I think you're right, for it likely being another casting announcement....has Nightwing and Oracle been rumoured to appear? If so, my excitement for this movie just went up another notch. Be interesting to see who they choose...no one springs to mind atm

I just read this story last week n nightwing wasn't in it

blackagar94 - 2/1/2014, 10:03 AM

IronLantern79 - 2/1/2014, 10:12 AM
DAMIAN!! My second favorite Robin.
thebearjew - 2/1/2014, 10:13 AM
MrBlackJack shouldn't we have seen set pics
I thought they were doing on location shooting in detroit
BlackIceJoe - 2/1/2014, 10:13 AM
@TopCat89

The rumor that keeps popping up is that Nightwing is in the movie and Bruce and Dick had a falling out. So I take it has to do something with Barbara and that is why I brought up Oracle. As for Bat's suit I so can't wait to see it. From everything you hear about it the suit should be great.
DukeAcureds - 2/1/2014, 10:25 AM
Since they retconned Oracle, in the comics, I hope they have Barbara as a cop, personally. She could be this movie's version of Sgt. Gordon. It would be in keeping with her character and history and would also seed a future Batman Beyond movie.
Also, the rumors we are hearing say that Bruce has had a falling out with "Robin". Maybe it's Jason Todd. That would be much more fitting.
I'm personally hoping that Bruce has an army, in this film. We've heard he'll probably have drones and that the inspiration for this Batman is taken from Kingdom Come, Dark Knight Returns and Batman Beyond. Maybe he will have drones and an army that he trains, as he rarely goes out into action himslef. That way, they could throw in Nightwing, Red Robin, Carrie Kelly and anyone else they feel we would all love to see.
DukeAcureds - 2/1/2014, 10:37 AM
WB are always really militant about their security. I guess, this time, their tactics are just to confuse the fvck out of everybody. Who knows what or when they are shooting, really. But if they go outside at all. We will see them. Oh yes, we will.
Action - 2/1/2014, 10:39 AM
I thought for a min they left out the man bats but there they are. Also didn't Damien originally had a fight with Tim Drake and not Dick?
j2cool2 - 2/1/2014, 10:48 AM
I think this brings to light a bigger question? With such a large endeavor based on Damian's character, is he about to return soon in the comics?
MarkV - 2/1/2014, 10:56 AM
The chin piece on batman's suit is a cool flair.

Ziinnnng! LOL

One of the best things about Damian was his relationship with Dick Grayson they cannot screw that up. Peter Tomasi's run on Batman and Robin was a little regressive.
CROD - 2/1/2014, 11:02 AM
So Damian fights the one person he'd never fight?

Damn it, and I was willing to give it a chance despite the voice acting and change from the source.

batz11 - 2/1/2014, 11:08 AM
Damn Morrena is beautiful...I liked her for Wasp, but don't see it now with Rudd and Douglas...
patrat18 - 2/1/2014, 11:19 AM
Dc animation never fails.
BlackIceJoe - 2/1/2014, 11:35 AM
@DukeAcureds

So you want a Batman Army. Do you want the Savage Time Batman Army, Batman Army. Batman Robots, Batman's Men team or the team with the girls too?









JULEZ13 - 2/1/2014, 11:43 AM
This is gonna be amazing! It'll definitely make up for Justice League: War!

I seriously need to read this comic!
Draximos - 2/1/2014, 11:50 AM
The original story is amazing, though this film sounds like it has little in common with it. This really disappoints me. From the description, we see the unnecessary inclusion of Deathstroke, a change in Talia's motivation and a change in Damian's origin. My excitement for an adaptation of one of the greatest Batman epics is greatly diminishing.
JorEllinator - 2/1/2014, 11:52 AM
Looks like shit, voice-acting's so frickin' wooden.
Berserker187 - 2/1/2014, 11:58 AM
Damien voice not the great sounding. Saw it on war JL special features animation looks pretty good hope they follow the comic story line. But will check ot out.
carrowsboy - 2/1/2014, 12:48 PM
Anyone else getting burnt out on Ra's Al Ghul stories besides me?
Ineedrevelation - 2/1/2014, 1:24 PM
OKAY DAMMIT! ENOUGH WITH THE DIFFERENT PRONUNCIATIONS OF RA'S AL GOUL'S NAME!

We already have Raysh and Raz! Now this guy on the video is calling him RAASH.

STOP IT!
DukeAcureds - 2/1/2014, 1:26 PM
carrowsboy@ To say he's been dead, in the comics, since before Batman Begins, we have had an awful lot of Ra's.

BlackIceJoe@ All of the above.
And maybe a little bit of these...





DukeAcureds - 2/1/2014, 1:34 PM
And a lot of...







BlackIceJoe - 2/1/2014, 2:08 PM
@DukeAcureds

I can totally see the Mutants from TDKR being in the film. Snyder did say that comic was an example of that Batman he would show.
Kyos - 2/1/2014, 2:42 PM
Looks good, apart from the "Raysh" thing. ^^
fettastic - 2/1/2014, 3:05 PM
I might actually be more excited about this than I was The Dark Knight Returns!
SnapperCarr - 2/1/2014, 3:14 PM
Yes! Nightwing and Damian together! I'm definitely getting this!
Super12 - 2/1/2014, 4:37 PM
Man I hate this new Batman's voice...
