BATMAN: YEAR ONE Voices, Screen Shots Revealed

I'm Batman!!Thanks to The Hollywood Reporter, we’ve got a ton of more details on the upcoming Batman: Year One direct-to-DVD animated feature. Along with the screenshot above, the bulk of the voice cast was announced, with The O.C. alum/current Southland actor Ben McKenzie starring as the young Bruce Wayne/Batman. And from one critically acclaimed show to another, Breaking Bad’s Bryan Cranston (also known as Malcolm in the Middle’s dad) is James Gordon, and genre faves Katee Sachkoff (Battlestar Galactica‘s Starbuck, duh) and Eliza Dushku (Dollhouse, Buffy the Vampire Slayer voice Detective Sarah Essen and Catwoman, respectively. Mobster Carmine Falcone is played by no less of an authority than Alex Rocco, who portrayed The Godfather‘s Moe Greene.

DC Animation regulars Lauren Montgomery and Sam Liu co-direct, and Tab Murphy, who wrote last year’s Superman/Batman: Apocalypse, penned the screenplay. 1987′s Batman: Year One, written by Frank Miller and illustrated by David Mazzucchelli, is one of the most revered stories published by DC Comics, telling the early days of Batman’s crimefighting career in Gotham. The story has influenced several film and TV versions of the character, but this is the first straight adaptation — though several others have been in development in one stage or another over the years.
