Fans have been wanting to see a movie version of ‘Batman: Year One’ for ages and while we won’t be getting a live action version, it looks like the animated movie is going to be pretty damned spectacular. With Benjamin McKenzie as Bruce Wayne, Bryan Cranston as Jim Gordon, Eliza Dushku as Catwoman and Katee Sackhoff as Sarah Essen, expectations are pretty high for this feature.

You won’t be able to get the Blu-ray, DVD, OnDemand or download until October 18, 2011, but now you can at least check out the trailer.

Here’s the official synopsis:
A young Bruce Wayne has spent his adolescence and early adulthood, traveling the world so he could hone his body and mind into the perfect fighting and investigative machine. But now as he returns to Gotham City, he must find a way to focus his passion and bring justice to his city. Retracing Batman’s first attempts to fight injustice as a costumed vigilante, we watch as he chooses a guise of a giant bat, creates an early bond with a young Lieutenant James Gordon, inadvertently plays a role in the birth of Catwoman, and helps to bring down a corrupt political system that infests Gotham.
