DC is tying its animated films into a unified universe, and a new clip from the latest installment in that effort has arrived. Get ready to meet the Son of Batman.
The animated film, which follows along with Grant Morrison’s similarly themed comic arc, picks up with Bruce Wayne learning he has a child with Talia Al Ghul, so he takes the boy and tries to raise him. Of course, this being Batman’s kid, he is not lacking in the kung-fu skills.
This new clip shows those acrobatics and fighting skills in action, as young Damian trains outside Wayne Manor while Bruce watches from inside.
Here’s the official synopsis for the animated feature:
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, Batman 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.
Check out the new clip below and let us know what you think:
