Batman Year One animation casting news April 20, 2011

So Batman Year One is going to be another of DC/Warner Bros’ extremely awesome animated films.
That’s just the start of the good news. Because Bruce Timm (who designed Batman: The Animated Series) is executive producer. Yes indeed.

So they’re putting the cast together (thanks Hollywood Reporter) and Bryan Cranston is playing Jim Gordon. Cranston, being the dude from Breaking Bad (and like a thousand other things) had this to say about why he turned it down at first:
“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.”

That, to me, really sums up the state of these DC DVD animated films. They will stun people with how good they are. I myself was stunned, and I do watch a ton of cartoons. There is no overstating the quality of these flicks. Can’t wait to see Year One.
