It's A Trailer Off! 'Son of Batman' Vs. 'Maleficent: FIGHT!

By Jodi Clager | Trailers | January 20, 2014 | Comments ()


Son of Batman is based on the 2006 Grant Morrison storyline that focused on Damian Wayne, son of Talia Al Ghul and The Goddamn Batman. Raised in the League of Assassins, Damian is a violent and unpredictable tween. Like Justin Bieber, but frightening.

Jason O’Mara, Stuart Allan, Morena Baccarin, Giancarlo Esposito, David McCallum, Xander Berkeley and Thomas Gibson lend their voices to the DC Animation feature.

Maleficent is, of course, based on Sleeping Beauty’s evil queen. The Angelina Jolie led film will trace Maleficent’s climb to the evil top, as well as her subsequent cursing of Princess Aurora.

Elle Fanning, Sharlto Copley, Juno Temple, Imelda Staunton, Sam Riley, and Brenton Thwaites star alongside Jolie’s cheekbones.

    If anyone wants to see an actually good story circulating a Disney villain, watch "Twisted". It's a "Wicked" -esque story about Jafar. It is a musical, so you've been warned.

    I'm only interested in 'Maleficent' because Peter Capaldi is in it, and I pray that the Powers That Be send him to America to promote the movie. Specifically, the Late Late Show so that he and Craig Ferguson can FINALLY have another interview together.

  • BWeaves

    I would like to know how loudly Ferguson screamed when he found out Capaldi was going to be the next Doctor.

    My vote is for "Son of Batman"...but only if they introduce the Bat-Pets:

  • Al Borland's Beard

    So long as they include my favorite, Bat-manatee.

  • BWeaves

    The tree stump men look like Sauron, or the King of the Nazgul, only more wooden.

  • Mrs. Julien

    If I had a nickel...

    Somewhere, Eva Green is silently weeping over a scenery-chomping sexy villainess role that escaped her...

  • Wrestling Fan

    I despise Damien Wayne, but I would still rather watch his movie than Maleficent

  • Maleficent looks like a big pile of overly sugary crap.

  • carrie

    Malificient yells RAZZZIESSSS

  • TacoBellRey

    I am so excited for Maleficent. Has anyone heard about this other villain movie that they're doing? Depending on execution, it seems like it could have amazing potential.

    I probably shouldn't get my hopes up for either one.
