Warner Premiere, the Warner Bros. division that handles the direct-to-DVD animated superhero films, has released a trailer for Batman: Year One.  The film is based on Frank Miller’s acclaimed 1987 comic miniseries of the same name.  As if the title didn’t give it away, the film focuses on the Caped Crusader’s first year as a costumed vigilante.  The trailer looks interesting and Warner Premiere did an alright job with last year’s Batman: Under the Red Hood.  This time around, Batman will be voiced Ben McKenzie (Southland) with Bryan Cranston as Detective Gordon, Eliza Dushku as Catwoman, and Katee Sackhoff as Gordon’s love interest, Detective Sarah Essen.  While McKenzie sounds fine, I always hear Kevin Conroy (from Batman: The Animated Series) as the proper voice of the Dark Knight.  Thankfully, he’s reprising the role for Batman: Arkham City.

Hit the jump to check out the trailer.  Batman: Year One will premiere at Comic-Con and hit stores sometime this fall.

Trailer via MTV.

Here’s the official synopsis for Batman: Year One:

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.
