World Premiere Of “Son Of Batman” Animated Feature Confirmed For WonderCon Anaheim 2014

Representatives for WonderCon Anaheim 2014 have confirmed that the upcoming DC Universe Animated Original Movie title Son of Batman will debut at the popular annual convention. While the exact day and time have yet to be revealed, the 2014 WonderCon Anaheim convention will be held from April 18th – 20th, 2014 at the Anaheim Convention Center. Son of Batman is inspired by the acclaimed Batman storyline “Batman and Son” written by Grant Morrison, wherein Batman discovers he has a son – named Damian – with Talia Al Ghul. The animated feature will be released May 6th, 2014 on Blu-ray Combo Pack, DVD, and for Digital Download by Warner Bros. Home Entertainment. The following official details on the highly-anticipated premiere are below, courtesy of WonderCon Anaheim.

The world is turned upside down when Batman—one of the world’s greatest superheroes—finds out he is a father in the newest DC Universe Original Animated Movie, Son of Batman. This all-new, PG-13-rated film will have its world premiere at WonderCon Anaheim with a screening and panel discussion.

The screening at WonderCon marks the sixth DC Universe Animated Movie premiere at the event. Warner Bros. Animation and DC Entertainment have premiered Justice League: The New Frontier (2008), Wonder Woman (2009), Green Lantern: Emerald Knights (2011), Superman vs. The Elite (2012), and Superman Unbound (2013) exclusively at WonderCon over the past 6 years.

In Son of Batman, Batman learns he has a son, Damian—and to further complicate matters, the mother is Talia Al Ghul, daughter of one of his most dreaded enemies, Ra’s Al Ghul. When the odds quickly turn against Batman and Damian, the Dark Knight must become both father and mentor to the aggressive, agile new Robin. Together they form an uneasy alliance to try and thwart the criminal enterprise of Deathstroke and his army of ninja man-bats before there are international consequences.

Primetime television stars Jason O’Mara (Terra Nova, Vegas) and Stuart Allan (Grey’s Anatomy), the voices of Batman/Bruce Wayne and Damian, respectively, unite with several television greats to fashion these famed animated roles. Adding to the celebrity-laden voice cast is Thomas Gibson (Criminal Minds) as Deathstroke, Morena Baccarin (Homeland) as Talia, Xander Berkeley (Nikita) as Langstrom, David McCallum (NCIS) as Alfred, Giancarlo Esposito (Breaking Bad, Revolution) as Ra’s Al Ghul, Sean Maher (Firefly) as Nightwing/Dick Grayson, and Bruce Thomas (Kyle XY) as Gordon.

Produced by Warner Bros. Animation and DC Entertainment, Son of Batman is directed by Ethan Spaulding from a screenplay by Joe R. Lansdale, and based on a story by James Robinson. James Tucker is producer. Phil Bourassa is character designer. Sam Register (Young Justice, Teen Titans), Michael Uslan (The Dark Knight Rises) and Benjamin Melniker (The Dark Knight Rises) are executive producers. The film arrives May 6, 2014 from Warner Bros. Home Entertainment on Blu-Ray Combo Pack, DVD and Digital HD.

The annual WonderCon Anaheim convention is a massive celebration of comics and pop culture, and will be held from April 18th – 20th, 2014 at the Anaheim Convention Center. With over 56,000 attendees in 2013, WonderCon Anaheim continues to be one of the top comics and pop culture events in the country. 2014 marks the event’s 28th continuous year. More details on this convention, including program details and more, can be found at the official WonderCon Anaheim website.
