Cranston will voice a young liutenant James Gordon, McKenzie is Bruce Wayne/Batman, Dushku will provide the voice for Catwoman, and Sackhoff is Gordon’s love interest, Detective Sarah Essen.  The film is PG-13 and stay close to the comic with executive producer Bruce Timm saying, “It a pretty straight forward literal retelling.  Mazzucchelli’s artwork is beautifully composed and we were able to refer to the comic for about 80 percent of the camera setups.”

Batman: Year One hits stores this fall.

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.

    I love the story line of batman : year one. I guess my addiction to batman is not over yet. I’ve been a batman fanatic since childhood, up until now, I’m still loyal. Add to that, my addiction to collect batman figures. So much of the “me” talk. Where can I get a copy of this ?….Can’t wait for the new batman movie , the dark knight rises.
