Son of Batman
This year marks the 75th Anniversary for Batman and we received some well received news regarding his son, Damian Wayne. The first trailer for Son of Batman was released. Son of Batman is a new animated film based on Grant Morrison’s early run on the “Batman and Son” arc where he finds out he has an unruly pre-teen son. Damian was being raised by his mother Talia Al Ghul and the League of Assassins.
The voice cast features Jason O’Mara as Batman/Bruce Wayne, Stuart Allan as Damian, Morena Baccarin as Talia, Giancarlo Esposito as Ra’s Al Ghul, and Thomas Gibson as Deathstroke. Deathstroke was not originally in the story but he will be in the animated film which will premiere at Anaheim’s WonderCon Easter Weekend. If you haven’t seen the trailer, take a look below.
JLA Adventures: Trapped in Time
A new animated film entitled JLA Adventures: Trapped in Time will be released January 21st. It wasn’t really marketed and this was the first I’ve heard of it.
Here’s the synopsis:
Get ready for a battle of the ages when the Justice League faces off against its archenemies, the Legion of Doom, in an all-new movie from DC Comics. A mysterious being known as the Time Trapper arises, and a sinister plan led by Lex Luthor sends the Legion of Doom back in time to eliminate Superman, Wonder Woman and Batman before they become super heroes. For Aquaman, Flash and Cyborg, along with teen super heroes Karate Kid and Dawnstar, the stakes have never been higher, the rescue mission never deadlier. So join the fight for the future as the Justice League confronts its ultimate challenge… the threat of having never existed!“
I’ll try to watch that as soon as I can and give you my take on it!
As you may know, Fox will be filming a new TV show centered around Gotham, a young Gordon, and a young Bruce Wayne. More reports now reveal some of Batman’s main villains will be in the show. Villains include the Riddler, the Penguin, and even the Joker. Fox’s entertainment chairman, Kevin Reilly, reported what the future villains’ roles shall be. “We will see how they get to become what they are as Gotham is teetering on the edge,” Reilly said.
I expect Gotham to be DC’s counter to Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D and I hope it can be as good as S.H.I.E.L.D. is. (Which isn’t particularly outstanding)
That’s all the news I have for today. Be sure to check back for more updates and news!
