Warner Bros. has announced that New York Comic-Con attendees will be the first to see the 15-minute animated short Catwoman. The short will be attached to the upcoming Blu-ray of Warner Premiere’s animated adaptation of Frank Miller’s Batman: Year One. Tommy had some mixed feelings about the film when he caught it at Comic-Con, but it’s a nice bonus for fans that WP will be throwing on a 15-minute short film. Eliza Dushku provides the voice of Catwoman in both the short and the feature.
Attendees will also get to see the first footage from Warner Premiere’s next DC Universe animated film, Justice League: Doom. The presentations will be part of Warner Premiere’s panel on October 14th from 3:00-4:00pm. The panel will also include the one true voice of Batman, Kevin Conroy, as well as executive producer Bruce Timm and casting director Andrea Romano. Hit the jump to check out the first image from Catwoman as well as the full press release. Batman: Year One hits stores on October 18th.
