‘Batman: Year One’ Comes To Dinner In New Animated Clip [Video]
Warner Home Video’s animated adaptation of Frank Miller and David Mazzucchelli’s authoritative take on Batman’s origin story arrives on DVD and Blu-ray October 18, and judging from its first official clip, executive producer Bruce Timm, directors Lauren Montgomery and Sam Liu and writer Tab Murphy stuck pretty close to their Batman: Year One source material. If you’ve read Year One, you’ll recognize the scene right away. Check it out after the jump.Batman: Year One’s roster of voice actors has been known for awhile, but man, look at it again. There’s Bryan Cranston (Jim Gordon), Ben McKenzie (Bruce Wayne/Batman), Eliza Dushku (Selina Kyle/Catwoman), Katee Sackhoff (Detective Sarah Essen) and Alex Rocco (Carmine Falcone) all in one Batmanny place.
Is it too much to hope for a bonus scene with Breaking Bad’s Cranston as Jim Gordon pulling up to a mobile meth lab and beating its occupants with a baseball bat before hauling them to the GPD station? He’d be all, “Stay out of my territory.” Okay… yeah, that’s probably too much to ask.
