First Trailer Released for ‘Batman vs. Robin’

Warner Bros. Animation and DC Entertainment has released the first official trailer for Batman vs. Robin, the sequel to the 2014 release, Son of Batman. Batman vs. Robin is loosely based on Scott Snyder’s and Greg Capullo’s “The Court of Owls” graphic novel. The film stars returning voice actors Jason O’Mara as Bruce Wayne/Batman and Stuart Allen as Damian Wayne/Robin, as well as ‘Weird Al’ Yankovic as Dollmaker, Jeremy Sisto as Talon, and Kevin Conroy as Thomas Wayne.

While I’m happy to see Scott Snyder’s story come to life in animated form, a lot of the events in this new trailer are strikingly similar to events that occurred in Son of Batman. We’re going to see more of Bruce and Damian disagreeing on what actions to take and more scenes of Damian going against Bruce, trying to take matters into his own hands. Hopefully, the use of Snyder’s Court of Owls, a terroist-like group with deep roots in Gotham City’s history, provides a fresh take on the dynamic duo.

Check out the trailer for Batman vs. Robin below and feel free to let us know what you think in the comments. Batman vs. Robin is set to release on DVD, blu-ray, and digital download later this year.
