If there’s one thing that anyone can say about DC Comic’s is that when it comes to animated features, they tend to do very well. And it looks like they plan on keeping that streak alive in 2014. Not only do we have the upcoming Justice League: WAR (will releases on Feb 2nd, 2014) feature and the only just recently Justice League: Adventures to look forward to but we now know that DC Comic’s has another surprise in store; “Son of Batman”.
Son of Batman follows the Grant Morrison and Andy Kubert’s story-line from 2006, Batman & Son. This arc introduced his offspring, Damien Wayne, into both Bruce Wayne’s and Batman’s world. There’s just one problem; Damien is set on revenge for the death of his Grand Father, Ra’s Al Ghul.
The voice cast features Jason O’Mara as Batman/Bruce Wayne; Stuart Allan as Damian;Morena Baccarin as Talia, Damian’s mother;Giancarlo Esposito as Ra’s Al Ghul, leader of the League of Assassins and one of Batman’s most notorious enemies; David McCallum as butler Alfred Pennyworth; Xander Berkeley as Kirk Langstrom (aka Man-Bat); and Thomas Gibson plays the master assassin Deathstroke.
The feature is expected to hit DVD & Blu-ray this spring.
So how’s about a Superman or even a Superman Prime film next, DC?
