New Batman Movie Will Introduce His Son


DC Entertainment is bringing Damian Wayne to the big screen (of home movies). In 2006 Grant Morrison canonized the “Son of the Demon”, Damian Wayne. The offspring of Ra’s Al Ghul’s daughter, Talia, and Bruce Wayne. The character’s hardcore attitude which sometimes bordered on brattiness quickly gained a huge fandom. Newsarama even went on to give Damian the number two spot on their list of “Ranking the Robins from 10 to 1” only being beat out by the original Robin Dick Grayson.

Last February DC comics, more specifically Damian’s creator Grant Morrison, decided to kill Damian in the comic books. That however hasn’t stopped the outpouring of fan support for the character. The character was even recently revived in the “Damian: Son of Batman” limited series which explores an alternate future where Damian was never killed.

Now DC Entertainment is immortalizing the beloved Robin, from Morrison and co-creator Andy Kubert’s Batman and Son story arch, into a full length animated film. The movie will center on the revelation to Batman that he has a ten year old son which was being raised in secret by Talia Al Ghul. Fresh off the heels of DC Animated Universe’s New 52 reboot, this film will also include fan favorite character Deathstroke.

Jason O’Mara will once again be reprising his role as the voice of Batman/Bruce Wayne. And joining him will be Stuart Allan as Damian, Morena Baccarin as Talia Al Ghul, Giancarlo Esposito as Ra’s Al Ghul, David McCallum as Alfred Pennyworth, Xander Berkeley as Kirk Langstrom (aka Man-Bat), and Thomas Gibson as Deathstroke.

Son of Batman will be available on Blu-ray, DVD, and digital download this Spring and will premiere at this year’s Wondercon in Anaheim California.

    I think its interesting how the animated universe is slowly falling in line with the New 52 one. I liked Damian but he worked better with Dick than Bruce as Batman.

    I dont really see the point of bringing a character into the animated universe just to kill him off in the future, this is his fate, but if they skip this portion of Bat history future events may not make sense to people who dont read the comics.

    great article btw.
