Batman Year One Animated Movie is Coming!

According to Comics Continuum, "Batman: Year One" is being adapted as one of Warner Home Video's DC Universe animated movies. Sam Liu was cited as the director of the project, who also directed Hulk Vs., "Planet Hulk," "Superman/Batman: Public Enemies" and co-directed "Justice League: Crisis on Infinite Earths."

Bruce Timm earlier this year hinted that we would be seeing more of the animated films featuring Batman and Superman because sales of Wonder Woman and Green Lantern First Flight were a bit underwhelming.  An adaptation of "Batman: Under The Red Hood" is already slated to be the next DC animated movie.

"Batman: Year One" was published by DC Comics in 1987. The story took place in the early days of Batman's career.  The story is considered one of the most influential Batman stories ever, with "Batman: The Long Halloween" serving as an unofficial sequel.
