Warner Bros has released this trailer for Batman: Year One so that we’re all very clear that Bruce Wayne‘s parents were murdered and years later he saw a bat and that prompted him to karate chop brick piles and become Batman. We’re all good on those facts now, right?

Adapted from Frank Miller‘s classic graphic novel (which served as an influence to Nolan’s Batman), the animated film follows Bruce Wayne through his first year as Batman, back when he was still super-pissed about the whole murder of his parents thing. The O.C.‘s Ben McKenzie stars as Batman (naturally) with Bryan Cranston as Jim Gordon, Katee Sackhoff as Sarah Essen, and Eliza Dushku as Catwoman. Because everyone knows that Catwoman has a wicked Boston accent.

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.

The upcoming animated direct-to-DVD Batman movie Batman Year One should be pretty good, considering it’s from Bruce Timm, the man behind the critically acclaimed “Batman” animated series. And the voice cast includes names like Bryan Cranston, Ben McKenzie, Eliza Dushku and Katee Sackhoff, which is also promising.

You can check out two new images from the movie below, both of which seem gloomy and quite reminiscent of the comic by Frank Miller. Pretty cool, right? Here’s a quote from Timm about the project:

“The source material is surprisingly cinematic; it’s a pretty straight forward literal retelling. Mazzucchelli’s artwork is beautifully composed and we were able to refer to the comic for about 80 percent of the camera setups.”
