SON OF BATMAN Trailer Debuts with Damian Wayne
At long last, Damian gets his due.
The trailer for Son of Batman, the latest DC Comics animated feature direct to home video, was released earlier today by TV Guide. Based on the storyline "Batman & Son" by Grant Morrison and Adam Kubert, Son of Batman is centered around Damian Wayne, the child of Bruce Wayne and Talia al Ghul, the daughter of the villainous Ra's al Ghul.
Appearing first as an infant in the 1987 graphic novel Batman: Son of the Demon by Mike W. Barr and Jerry Bingham, Damian was fully introduced as a headstrong, 10-year-old character in 2006's Batman #655 and soon took over the identity of Robin as Dick Grayson's partner when Bruce Wayne was believed to have been killed by Darkseid. He remained as Robin after his father's return, fighting crime at his side until he was killed last year by The Heretic, an agent of Talia, in the pages of Batman Incorporated (vol.2) #8.
The cast for Son of Batman was also listed in the article, which include the following:
Batman/Bruce Wayne -- Jason O'Mara (voicing the character for the second time, after the previous release Justice League: War)
Robin/Damian Wayne -- Stuart Allan
Talia al Ghul -- Morena Baccarin (who previously provided the voice of Black Canary for the Justice League Unlimited animated series)
Ra's al Ghul -- Giancarlo Esposito
Alfred Pennyworth -- David McCallum (NCIS)
Man-Bat/Kirk Langstrom -- Xander Berkeley (Nikita, Kick-Ass)
Deathstroke/Slade Wilson -- Thomas Gibson (Criminal Minds)
Son of Batman is scheduled to arrive sometime this spring. If you'd like to check out the trailer, you can view it below thanks to TV Guide...
