Son of Batman - Animated Movie


Deathstroke is on the warpath in this generational drama, loosely inspired by the Batman and Son graphic novel from Grant Morrison and Andy Kubert.  When Damian's nemesis grand-dad, Ra's Al Ghul, is murdered, this pint-size prodigy serves up a cold dish of vengeance with his own particular brand of whoop-ass while wearing the Robin costume.  

The upcoming animated movie Son of Batman introduces Damian, the child Bruce Wayne never knew he had. The story is based on a 2006 comic-book arc written by Grant Morrison in which 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.

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, California.
