10-Minute Sneak Peek at D.C.’s Batman Year One Animated Movie

Frank Miller’s “Year One” Batman story made the Bat cool again. Okay, so he did that already in “The Dark Knight Returns” a few years earlier, but “Year One” was pretty damn cool in its own right. “Batman: Year One” is the latest in D.C.’s highly successful collaboration with Warner Home Video, with the partners putting out at least two titles per year, sometimes more. “Year One” would follow Miller’s original comics, introducing a young Bruce Wayne as he learns to fight crime, first as a ski-mask wearing vigilante, then later, as the Batman in order to “strike fear into the hearts” of the bad guys.

Animation sometime this year.
