Batman Year One trailer emerges from the shadows

Jul. 7, 2011by:

Can't wait what seems like a million years until THE DARK KNIGHT RISES comes out? Well perhaps you could tied yourself over with BATMAN: YEAR ONE, the new animated feature from DC that takes the famed Frank Miller storyline and turns it into a movie.

The first trailer for the feature is below, and you can check out the animation style which isn't too out there compared to past Batman projects. I'll look forward to checking it out for myself soon enough.

Extra Tidbit: I think it could make for a good live action film someday.

DC animated movies have been amazing ever since Mask of the Phantasm. This is one of my favorite comics. Can't wait!

Totally agree. I wish Mask of the Phantasm would be released as Blu Ray one day. That movie is way underrated.

It's right up there with Dark Knight Returns, although I like it better, personally

Id love to see some of the darker Batman stories to be made into stand alone live action movies. I think Batman Gothic would make for a good psychological thriller

I love the Animated DC movies that have been coming out lately. By far the best one was Under the Red Hood. Can't wait.

Can't wait for this

DC is killing it with their animated movies. Their animated projects over the years have always been better than Marvel's. It's a shame it hasn't translated to live-action success as well. Anyone who wants a breakdown of DC's animated movies check out the wikipedia page: [link]

agreed...DC animated films are stellar...it's like they come from an entirely different world of DC altogether...a world that doesn't realize the live action films languish...very night-and-day the live action DC to toon DC.

DC is back to do what it's good at. Its animated features have been top notch.

The voice cast is perfect and this is based on one of my favorite books ever so I can't wait. I'll be picking this up day one.

Looking good. Digging Batman's voice. Can't wait to hear Bryan Cranston as Gordon too.

This past decade has been a phenomenal time to be a Batman fan. Hopefully a feature length Dark Knight Returns animated film is next.

A classic

A friend of mine is still bitter that Batman Begins borrowed from Year One but didn't fully adapt it. I wonder if he'll be happy now. I loved B.B. and Year One. This looks great!

Looks great

Not too keen on the guy voicing Bruce though.

Good to see that while Marvel may generally trounce DC at the cinema, DC is still tops in animation.

simply the best

its a shame that the best comic films are the animated ones from DC now that had some good ones back in the day, but honestly these animated film did it right above, batman begins, dark knight, ironman, and even spiderman. they need to do what the animated film are doing, what robert did and simply take the pages and adapt them picture for picture thats what we fans want, not joker turned guerilla terrorist, scarecrow the bag head, or even green gobline the green power ranger lets get to what

Joker pretty much is a terrorist. He usually holds the city for ransom or something

Yes, but if adapted it page for page for a live action movie, you would most likely get some stylized film like 300 or something
