The first trailer has been released for Batman Vs. Robin, the latest animated film in Warner Bros. Home Entertainment’s DC Universe line.
A sequel to Son of Batman, which saw Batman learn he has a child with Talia Al Ghul, Batman Vs. Robin will see him going head-to-head with his son Damian, the titular Robin.
The plot will be incorporating strands from Scott Snyder and Greg Capullo’s stint, with – as the trailer clearly shows – elements from their Batman: The Court of Owls.
Jason O’Mara will once again be voicing Bruce Wayne/Batman, Stuart Allan is Damian/Robin, Sean Maher is Dick Grayson/Nightwing, and David McCallum is the voice of Alfred Pennyworth. The great supporting voice cast includes classic Batman voice actor Kevin Conroy (voicing Dwayne’s dad, Thomas Wayne) and Weird Al” Yankovic (who will be voicing serial killer Dollmaker).
Batman Vs. Robin is directed by Jay Oliva, who directed previous animated Batman films Batman: The Dark Knight Returns (Parts 1 & 2) and Batman: Assault on Arkham. The film will be released sometime this year.
