Brief Synopsis:
This is a short animated film Prequel to Batman, Batman Returns, Batman Forever, Batman & Robin, and Batman Beyond (my fan edit) that shows who Bruce Wayne was before he became Batman, marking the numerical first in Animated Prequels/Sequels to the original franchise that the faneditor plans on making.
Intention:
Create a short animated film Prequel to Batman, Batman Returns, Batman Forever, Batman & Robin, and Batman Beyond (my fan edit) that shows who Bruce Wayne was before he became Batman, marking the numerical first in Animated Prequels/Sequels to the original franchise that I plan on making.
Additional Notes:
I decided to name it Year One instead of Batman: Year One for two reasons: 1. PaulIsDead already named his Batman Begins edit Batman: Year One, 2. There isn’t much if any Batman in this, so it’s more like Bruce transitioning to Batman. Thus, the lack of ‘Batman’ in the title.

This was a nice little Bruce Wayne story. I wouldn’t have called it “Year One” but that’s really the only complaint I have with it.

Flawless. The work JT did putting this together made it seem like an actual episode of Batman: TAS. The transistions between scenes and flashbacks were flawless and i could find no problems with hard cuts, nor did I find any problems with the audio.

Year One is Bruce Wayne’s first journey into fighting crime, his trials if you will. It is in this short film that Bruce learns what it is to lead a double life, and what it may cost him if he continued on one path instead of the other. The film ends with Brice donning the familiar cape and cowl, and the familiar Batman theme playing in the background. With Alfred looking on with a “I think I just pooped in my pants look” when he first sees Batman, the film ends with the glowing white eyes of Batman.

JT has done a great service with this and BB, and if Year One becomes part of a larger set of Matman related films in the dcau, I would love to review them all, compilation or not.

10/10
