TV Guide has the official first look at Batman's next animated adventure: Son of Batman
The voice cast for the movie will have Jason O'Mara as Batman (this will be the second time the actor has voiced the character, with his first being the soon-to-be released Justice League: War. Does this mean that DC will be having the various actors from the movies reprise their roles for future projects?), Stuart Allan as Damian Wayne, Morena Baccarin as Talia Al Ghul, Giancarlo Esposito as Ra's Al Ghul, David McCallum as Alfred, Xander Berkeley as Kirk Langstrom, and Thomas Gibson as Deathstroke.
Though this appears to be a VERY loose adapation as Deathstroke and Ra's Al Ghul never appeared in the opening arc of the Grant Morrison story. Though both later appeared in his long Batman run (Deathstroke during an arc in Batman & Robin, while Ra's made his return in the Batman event: "the Resurrection of Ra's Ah Gul"). Also of note is the curious absence of Tim Drake who played a role in the original story and the switching of villains with Talia being the antagonist of the story and not Deathstroke.Then again, this is the trailer and there is still a League of Assassin Man-Bats.
Look for Son of Batman to hit sometime in May on Blu Ray, DVD, and digital download while the movie itself will probably premiere at Wonder Con, April 19 (the con runs from the 18 thru the 20).
