Behind the scenes of Batman: Arkham City (x)
He’s totally doing the face! Ha. This is amazing.
I will never get over how incredible these two are. Easily the best Batman and Joker. EVER.
Justice League: DOOM
How awesome does the new DC Animated film look? DOOM releases on February 28th and I am PUMPED! Early reviews are all positive, with many people calling this something of a Justice League reunion. As in the animated Justice League series from the early 2000s. That absolutely perfect creation of cartoon super heroes.
Almost the entire original voice cast has returned for DOOM; Kevin Conroy, Tim Daly, Susan Eisenberg, they’re all here. Notable new additions are Nathan Fillion, Alexis Denisof, and Claudia Black, and who could complain about any of them? Seriously, Nathan Fillion is the best thing to happen to Hal Jordan since he first put on that ring.
What’s going to make this film really special is it being the last work of Dwayne McDuffie. I’ve written about him before, and how I only came to realize his influence on my obsession with super heroes when I was researching his obituary. I was shocked to see his involvement in just about everyone of my favorite childhood cartoons, and saddened it wasn’t until he passed that I realized it. So knowing this was his last screenplay and it’s a reunion of so many familiar voices, I just know I am going to love this movie.
Oh! And it was directed by Lauren Montgomery, who was also responsible for directed Wonder Woman, Green Lantern: First Flight, Superman/Batman: Apocalypse, co-directed Justice League: Crisis on Two Earths and Batman:Year One with with Sam Liu. This film was worked on by simply fabulous people.
Check out a few more clips below. I believe they basically comprise the opening fight scene between the Justice League and The Royal Flush Gang.
The continuity crossovers are a dizzying good time. Brave and the Bold’s Batman, voiced by Diedrich Bader, accidentally opens a wormhole (oops!) and lands on Herron’s planet Zurr En Arrh, only to find that his powers are more like Superman’s there.
Zurr En Arrh’s own Batman is voiced by Kevin Conroy (who is pretty much the best Batman ever). Conroy, who voiced The Dark Knight in the groundbreaking television series Batman: The Animated Series, is joined in the episode by Superman: The Animated Series voice vets like Dana Delaney (who played Lois Lane) and Clancy Brown (who portrayed probably the best Lex Luthor ever)."

Holy crap awesome! I can’t wait! I love Kevin Conroy as Batman!
Batman: Brave and the Bold has really grown on me. At first I was thinking, wow what a crappy way to make Batman for the kiddies, but now? It’s really a smart blend of the campy and brooding side of The Dark Knight.
One more time, Kevin Conroy FTW!
