Warner has unveiled a clip from Batman: Year One, the forthcoming animated adaptation of Frank Miller’s 1987 comic series of the same name.
Largely considered to be the definitive Batman origin story, it also served as the inspiration for large parts of Batman Begins and The Dark Knight.
Synopsis: A young Bruce Wayne has spent his adolescence and early adulthood, traveling the world so he could hone his body and mind into the perfect fighting and investigative machine. But now as he returns to Gotham City, he must find a way to focus his passion and bring justice to his city. Retracing Batman’s first attempts to fight injustice as a costumed vigilante, we watch as he chooses a guise of a giant bat, creates an early bond with a young Lieutenant James Gordon, inadvertently plays a role in the birth of Catwoman, and helps to bring down a corrupt political system that infests Gotham.
Batman: Year One will be released on DVD and Blu-ray in the US on 18 October 2011. It will also be available in Australia on 19 October 2011.
