Here's what you will NOT find in the film that were in the comics: Bruce taking a vacation, Tim Drake getting beaten up by Damian, Jezebel Jet, the three ghosts of Batman, The Black Casebook, future Damian as Batman, or England's Knight and the Club of Heroes.

Parents need to know that DCU: Son of Batman is a 2014 animated feature in which Bruce Wayne learns he has a hot-tempered son. Although this is an engaging story with high-quality animation, this film is most definitely not the campy Batman and Robin from the 1960s television show but a more noirish and cynical Batman and Gotham City. There is frequent fantasy-style violence: Characters are shown getting stabbed in the eyes and throats by swords and arrows, and in one instance Batman's son is shown stabbed in both his arms and pinned against a wall. There also are some sexual suggestions on occasion: The mother of Batman's child tells him, "I'm the only one who can bite you," Commissioner Gordon references a phone-sex number, and one of the main bad guys is shown bringing two prostitutes back to his apartment.
