Like it or not, Grant Morrison's run on Batman was one of the longest and most definitive runs on a character in the past decade. So it makes perfect sense that Warner Bros. and DC Entertainment would look to it as inspiration for one of its animated features.

The new Son of Batman movie appears to loosely adapt Grant Morrison and Andy Kubert's "Batman and Son," the first arc of Morrison's seven-year Batman run. It introduces Damian, but also throws Deathstroke into the mix, something that was never part of the story in the comics. Check out the first trailer for the movie after the jump.



Jason O'Mara (Grey's Anatomy), returns to voice Batman after taking on the cowl in Justice League: War. Morena Baccarin (Homeland) voices Talia al-Ghul, Giancarlo Esposito (Breaking Bad) is Ra's al-Ghul, Xander Berkeley (24) is Man-Bat and Thomas Gibson (Criminal Minds) is Deathstroke. Stuart Allan, who played a student on the TV version of Bad Teacher, is the voice of Damian.

Son of Batman will hit Blu-ray, DVD and digital download services late this spring.
