Even though the source material for Batman is comics, the live action Batman movies always overshadow the animated ones. I guess that’s because the live action films have bigger budgets, bigger stars, are released in theaters and are seen by more than just comic book nerds. Still… we all loved “Batman: The Animated Series,” right? Let’s show some respect.
The upcoming Batman: Year One, based on the classic Frank Miller comic of the same name, has a voice cast. Ben McKenzie will play the toon battective, Bryan Cranston will voice Pre-Commissioner Lieutenant James Gordon, Katee Sackhoff is set to play Gordon’s best gal Detective Sarah Essen, and Eliza Dushku won’t have to wear a skintight catsuit to voice Catwoman – though, you know, she probably should anyway. Warner Bros Animation is looking to unleash The Bat at this year’s Comic-Con.
