A lot of people thought that Batman Year One was going to get made into a movie. This is probably as close as you’re ever going to get to that, but it looks like it is still going to be a hell of a treat to watch.
The newly released clip shows Batman getting shot at by a gaggle of machine gun wielding police officers. The full animated experience will be available on October 18th and will feature the voices of
Ben McKenzie, Eliza Dushku, Katee Sackhoff, and Bryan Cranston.
Batman: Year One is based on the landmark 1987 DC Comics titles from 12-time Eisner Award winner Frank Miller and illustrator David Mazzucchelli. The film depicts young Bruce Wayne’s return to Gotham City in his first attempts to fight injustice as a costumed vigilante. The playboy billionaire chooses the guise of a giant bat to combat crime, creates an early bond with a young Lieutenant James Gordon (who is already battling corruption from inside the police department), inadvertently plays a role in the birth of Catwoman, and helps to bring down a crooked political system that infests Gotham.
