First Batman: Year One Clip: "Gentlemen. You've eaten well. But your feast is nearly over."

One of the greatest scenes in Frank Miller's graphic novel Batman: Year One is the dinner party that Batman crashes, in which he warns Gotham's rich and mighty that from this moment on, none of them is safe. Now you can watch that scene brought to life, in the first clip from the Batman: Year One direct-to-DVD animated movie.


Batman: Year One comes out on October 18 and starts Bryan Cranston (Breaking Bad) as James Gordon, Eliza Dushku (Dollhouse) as Catwoman, Katee Sackhoff (Battlestar Galactica) as detective Sarah Essen, and animated newcomer Ben McKenzie plays Batman/Bruce Wayne. Here's the blurb:

Batman: Year One is based on the landmark 1987 DC Comics titles from 12-time Eisner Award winner Frank Miller and illustrator David Mazzucchelli. The film depicts young Bruce Wayne's return to Gotham City in his first attempts to fight injustice as a costumed vigilante. The playboy billionaire chooses the guise of a giant bat to combat crime, creates an early bond with a young Lieutenant James Gordon (who is already battling corruption from inside the police department), inadvertently plays a role in the birth of Catwoman, and helps to bring down a crooked political system that infests Gotham.

Paul Dini and the original DCAU folks did *too* good a job casting Kevin Conroy as Batman. Everyone else who's played an animated Batman has never sounded quite right since Conroy's voice was so perfect, and is so familiar.

I wonder why the lack of Conroy for these DCAU films? I guess it's an excuse for stunt casting mid-level celebrities for all the voice roles.
