NEWS - Batman: Year One Voice Cast Revealed
Reported by Foxwolf on Thu Apr 21 2011
Batman: Year One is a straight adaption of Frank Miller's comic, that tells the story of a young Bruce Wayne as he starts out as Batman and also explores the initial relationship between Batman and Lieutenant James Gordan.

The main voice cast will be:

Batman / Bruce Wayne: Ben McKenzie (Southland)
Lieutenant James Gordon: Bryan Cranston (Breaking Bad)
Catwoman: Eliza Dushku (Dollhouse)
Detective Sara Essen: Katee Sackoff
Carmine Falcone: Alex Rocco

Cranston talks about how he initially turned down the role, not even bothering to look at the script, due to his lack of knowledge of animation, and how surprised he was at the quality level of storytelling.

DC animation veteran and executive producer Bruce-Timm says that the movie is a straight up adaption, where about 90% of the movie is right out of the comic, including dialogue.

Batman: Year One will be released late summer/early fall and will premiere at San Diego Comic Con in July.

Check out this brief video interview from MTV with Timm.

Not that I don't like the DCAM but I think we get it with all the Batman, it was nice, but if htye really wanna expand they either need to feature other heroes getting their own movies, or make Brave and the Bold movies. Different Heroes teaming up, sorta like Justice League. I think it'd be a nice ideas and have cameo appearances here and ther.

@AMT Unfortunately, whatever makes money is what they continue to produce. Batman is the money maker for Warner Bros Animation, and since Wonder Woman and Green Lantern didn't sell too many copies, it's why we've mainly been getting Bats, Supes and Justice League movies.

In fact, I believe the next DCAU movie we're getting is Justice League: Doom (the story where Batman betrays the League), and the one after that is Frank Miller's famous Dark Knight Returns.
