Remember that insane ‘90s cartoon crossover they put together to steer kids off drugs? My memory’s a little hazy from all the drugs, but we might have the next best thing. The voices behind Batman: The Animated Series and The X-Men are joining forces for a new animated series, with a little Ninja Turtle and casting legend Andrea Romano thrown in for good measure.
The first installments of Cartoon Network’s new Justice League Action will bow as early as this Friday, and the latest look at our “Shazam Slam” beginnings trot out even more DC favorites. Arrow meets Constantine yet again in a new clip, along with Swamp Thing, Wonder Woman and more.
We’ve already seen one look at the new Justice League Action in … well, action, so when can we expect the official debut? As early as December, now that Cartoon Network confirms a four-part series premiere along with a brand-new clip featuring Superman and Wonder Woman.
Just when DC had us distracted with one shiny animation return, so too is the Justice League ready to grace our screens again in animated form. See for yourself in new clips from the forthcoming Justice League Action, including musical moments, alien worlds and a little Bat-time travel.
At this year’s San Diego Comic Con, the next slate of DC Animated films for 2017 was released, which consists of Justice League Dark, Teen Titans: The Judas Contract and an original feature by Bruce Timm called Batman and Harley Quinn. But it sounds like more may be on the way, if Mark Hamill and Kevin Conroy have any say in the matter.
It’s been non-stop Suicide Squad coverage since David Ayer’s DC villain team-up hit theaters last week, but if you’re looking for a superhero intermission, Kevin Conroy is at your service. The veteran Batman voice actor would like to take you back a few months to WB’s previous DCEU installment, and share his thoughts on Zack Snyder’s hero-vs-hero epic. Spoiler: They’re not entirely positive thoughts.
The Killing Joke is one of the most divisive Batman stories of all time. Alan Moore’s graphic novel remains a thorny topic for some fans, who feel as though Barbara Gordon’s treatment is despicable, while others have lauded Moore’s work as an iconic installment in the ongoing saga of Batman and The Joker. Further raising a few eyebrows is DC Comics’ animated adaptation of the story, which now has an official teaser along with a 12-minute sneak peek to show you how they brought this particular tale from page to screen.
While rumoured for several months, it has been officially confirmed via CBR that Kevin Conroy and Mark Hamill will both return to their iconic roles as Batman and The Joker in DC’s latest animated feature, an adaptation of Alan Moore and Brian Bolland’s The Killing Joke.
Hamill also unveiled the first look at the film’s animation style on Twitter, which seems to eschew an adaptation of Brian Bolland’s art in favour of the more generic style that has become popular with DC’s animated division. Tara Strong reprises her role as Barbara Gordon from Batman: The Animated Series, and Ray Wise will voice Commissioner James Gordon.
