Eliza Dushku As Animated Catwoman Reveal for Batman: Year One
DC Universe Animated Original Movies is putting out its next feature, Batman: Year One on Blu-ray, DVD, On Demand and digital download October 18 and will include a bonus short film starring the feline villainess, Catwoman. Voiced by Eliza Dushku, Catwoman goes up against a new villain, Rough Cut (John DiMaggio), made just for her. The Catwoman character also appears in Year One, where she starts off as Selina Kyle, a prostitute who turns to theft and eventually becomes one of Batman’s most well known enemies.
“I found the attitude for this character deep down in the Eliza Dushku archive of bad girls,” said Dushku on voicing Catwoman. “They’re in there somehow, somewhere for some reason, and I tap into them when I need them. They’re characters with an edge.” The move also features the voices of Ben McKenzie (where’s Kevin Conroy!?) as Batman and Bryan Cranston as Lieutenant Gordan.
Year One was based on a comic book arc during the main Batman title of the same name (issues #404-407). It was written by Frank Miller and illustrated by David Mazzucchelli. This is the first adaptation to come to fruition. Darren Aronofsky was hired to write and direct a reboot for the Batman franchise in 2000 that was to be based on Year One, but was ultimately shelved. Christopher Nolan’s Batman movies have drawn inspiration from Miller’s story, but are still quite different. To this day, Batman: Year One remains one on the most important parts of Batman’s history in comic books.
