So what am I doing posting up a trailer for a straight-to-DVD animated adaptation of Frank Miller’s Batman: Year One? That doesn’t exactly fall under our jurisdiction. Well if I’m honest, I just think this looks pretty damn good. As it happens the voice-over cast for this film is a who’s who of TV actors.
First we’ve got an interesting casting of Ben McKenzie (Southland, The OC) as Bruce Wayne/Batman. Then there’s Eliza Dushku (Buffy, Dollhouse) as Catwoman, in a role that she was born to play. And Playing Lt. James Gordon is none other that Brian “Breaking Bad” Cranston. Battlestar’s Katee Sackhoff and Cowboy Bebop’s Steve Blum also make vocal appearances.
So all things considered I’d say that ties in with the whole “television thing” we’ve got going on here rather nicely.
