While Batman and Superman do have adventures of their own, the comics have given them versions of their own kids at one point or another. Now those kids are set to get the spotlight in their own movie, Batman and Superman: Battle of the Super Sons, and we have our first clip.

The clip pretty much gives us exposition on the powers of 11-year-old Jonathan Kent, the son of Superman. While Superman has famously had powers since he was a kid, it looks like Jon is a late bloomer who is getting his powers slowly.
On the Batman side of things, we’ll be following his biological son Damian Wayne. Though he may not have the same story as Dick Grayson or Jason Todd, he does have a unique origin in that Batman has to teach him how to tone down his violence after being raised in the League of Shadows by his mother.
Here’s the official description for the WB movie:
Batman and Superman: Battle of the Super Sons begins as 11-year-old Jonathan Kent discovers he has superpowers, thrusting the half-Kryptonian into the complicated world of Super Heroes and Super-Villains – who are now under attack by a malevolent alien force known as Starro! It’s a race against time as Jonathan must join forces with assassin-turned-Boy-Wonder Damian Wayne to rescue their fathers (Superman & Batman) and save the planet by becoming the Super Sons they were destined to be!
Batman and Superman: Battle of the Super Sons comes out Oct. 18.
