Based on the Grant Morrison 'Batman and Son' run and coming to DVD and digital late spring.
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).

Jeremy was born in a small mountain village of a strange foreign land called Weystvurginea. Banishment for liberal views saw him spend years wondering the east coast until he decided to bike to California. When he saw how long a trip it was, he drove instead. Now he's living it up in a low humidity climate, sometimes working on his photography and when not, he writes for us covering books (by way of his blog: Reading Realms), gaming, tv, movies, comics, conventions in the SoCal area, and creates a weekly webcomic: A Journey Through Skyrim. If you look for him offline, start in the L.A. area; online start at: www.jeremyshane.info for his profile and all the social networks he's on... or just follow him on twitter, he seems to be on there a lot: @jeremyshane.
