Ok, so physical release on DVD/Blu-Ray has been out for some time, it seems it is safe for me to finally review this film now, especially given it’s leak online pre Wondercon, Wondercon premiere.

I do, also plan on getting the physical copy, why? because i’m a nut that is why!. Ok, with that out of the way i must say this film is overall… enjoyable…

Animated debuts are of importance for DC characters as they tend to really push a character into the spotlight or can also be a hint as to where this character will be taken in other aspects of the DC company plan and so I eagerly awaited to see this trailer for Son of Batman because oh man, I”ve not been too pleased with the way the character has been treated recently in the comics(i.e his death and lackluster miniseries).
