The animated adaption of Frank Millers Batman: Year One will see its debut at the 2011 San Diego Comic Con, with the full release come Fall.

Bryan Cranston, Ben McKenzie, Eliza Dushku and Katee Sackhoff will be voicing characters in the PG-13 rated movie, according to the Hollywood Reporter.

Executive producer Bruce Timm, who has worked on previous Warner Bros. animated films and the Justice League series, stated this version is going to be true to the comic book.

"The source material is surprisingly cinematic; it's a pretty straight forward literal retelling," Timm told THR. "Mazzucchelli's artwork is beautifully composed and we were able to refer to the comic for about 80 percent of the camera setups."

Batman: Year One, as written by Frank Miller, was released in 1987 with art by Dave Mazzuccelli - and originally published in the Batman comic books, #404-407. The story followed both Bruce Wayne and Jim Gordon, and their respective chosen paths. Many fans of the Bat consider this story to be one of the top!
