Animated BATMAN: YEAR ONE Adds Bonus Catwoman Short

TV Guide reports that the upcoming direct-to-DVD animated adaptation of Frank Miller and David Mazzucchelli's classic Batman: Year One storyline from Batman (vol.1) #404-407 will include a bonus Catwoman animated short film starring Year One actress Eliza Dushku reprising her role of Selina Kyle.

In the 15-minute short, Catwoman will go up against a newly-created crime boss named Rough Cut, voiced by Futurama's John DiMaggio, while being chased through Gotham City as she tracks down a "mysterious cargo shipment."  The story will be written by Batman: The Animated Series veteran Paul Dini and will be directed by Lauren Montgomery, co-director of Batman: Year One along with Sam Liu.

Batman: Year One goes on sale October 18th for DVD, Blu-Ray, On Demand and digital download and also stars Ben McKenzie as Bruce Wayne/Batman, Bryan Cranston as Lieutenant James Gordon, Katee Sackhoff as Detective Sarah Essen, Alex Rocco as Carmine Falcone and Grey DeLisle as Gordon's wife Barbara.

  2. I really hope they do a nice job with this one. Batman: Year One has been one of my all-time favorite Batman stories for years, so I'm looking forward to seeing it animated.
