batman year one movie Batman: Year One Voice Cast Will Feature Bryan Cranson & Eliza Dushku   Two Images Released

Heat Vision have announced that Bryan Cranston (Breaking Bad), Ben McKenzie (The O.C., Southland), Eliza Dushku (Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Dollhouse) and Katee Sackhoff (Battlestar Galactica, 24) will be lending their pipes to ‘Batman: Year One,’ the upcoming animated adaptation of Frank Miller’s 1987 classic comic title. Cranston is playing James Gordon, McKenzie is Bruce Wayne/Batman. Dushku voices Catwoman, while Sackhoff is Detective Sarah Essen, a Gordon love interest. Additionally, Alex Rocco lends his voice to the crime lord Carmine Falcone.

In Year One, a young Bruce Wayne is first starting out as a costumed vigilante. He creates an early bond with Lieutenant James Gordon, whose importance in the tale makes it as much as Gordon’s story as Wayne’s. Cranston, an Emmy winner for AMC’s Breaking Bad, says he initially turned down the chance to work on Year One, not even wanting to read the script. He blames it on his ignorance of the animation medium as well as the classic comics. “I wasn’t aware of this level of storytelling in animation. I confess that freely,” he says. “They didn’t give the characters the short shrift. I was stunned.”

‘Batman: Year One,’ is scheduled to be released on DVD and Blu-Ray in the fall but will world premiere in July at Comic-Con. Check out another image from the film below.
