Certainly the biggest attraction for Friday, Son of Batman which is DC Universe’s 20th original animated movie. When Batman (Jason O’Mara) discovers he has a son, Damien (Stuart Allan), with Talia al Gul, he begrudgingly takes the boy in. With the help of his former protégé, Nightwing (Sean Maher), Batman tries to train Damien to fight for good as the new Robin and to find the villainous Deathstroke before he can destroy the world as we know it. Son of Batman continues DC’s great tradition of excellent animated films with superb voice acting and a story sure to capture the interest of Batman fans everywhere.
