Damian Wayne Makes His Animated Debut in SON OF BATMAN
This year is the 75th Anniversary for Batman, and how do we DC ring it in? With the animated debut of a much loved character from the Bat family — Damian Wayne, Talia Al Ghul and Bruce Wayne’s love child — in Son of Batman. With the legacy of Batman and Ra’s Al Ghul behind him, Damian is the youngest and most deadly warrior in the DC Universe. The story is based on a 2006 comic-book arc written by Grant Morrison where Batman learns that he has a violent, unruly pre-teen son, secretly raised by the terrorist group the League of Assassins.
The voice cast features Jason O’Mara as Batman/Bruce Wayne; Stuart Allan as Damian; Morena Baccarin as Talia, Damian’s mother; Giancarlo Esposito as Ra’s Al Ghul, leader of the League of Assassins and one of Batman’s most notorious enemies; David McCallum as butler Alfred Pennyworth; Xander Berkeley as Kirk Langstrom (aka Man-Bat); and Thomas Gibson plays the master assassin Deathstroke.
There it is, how excited are you for the long awaited debut of Damian Wayne. The bad-ass Boy Wonder, and before any of the comments come in about Batman Brave and the Bold and how Damian is in that, he’s not really Damian we’re talking about. That was the son of Selina Kyle and Bruce Wayne.
Son of Batman comes out late this spring on DVD, Blu-ray and for digital download. The movie will have its world premiere at WonderCon over Easter weekend in Anaheim, Calif.
