Huh... so they were paying attention to pacing. Who knew?
Yeah, this was a misfire pretty much from the ground up for me. Basically every flaw that has been occassionally creeping into DC Animated movies in the past few years was cranked up to 11 for this one.
- Rushed, bloated script.
Kevin Conroy just liked this tweet. Perhaps a wink wink nudge nudge that he is the voice. Or not... It means nothing really, but I thought I'd mention it as it is the first time he has ever acknowledged the show:
YES! I've wanted Timm and Tucker working together again for some time now. They are a good pairing and will once again do wonderful stuff together.
Everything sounds great to me but I really wish they would have announced Batman's voice actor. I mean, all signs point to Conroy, right? Then...
It seems like this was intended to be an 'elseworlds' entry for the DC UNIVERSE line, but was changed to the generic 'animated' DTVs for whatever corporate reason.
It would explain why this got a sneak peek but the upcoming 'Catwoman: Hunted' seemingly won't.
Not to mention James Tucker did say during Apokolips War press that he was in development on a number of DC properties, but he was unsure at the time which one would actually get the greenlight. He'd be perfect for a Super Sons DTV or animated series.
That was my point. It won't. Just because it might be paired up with some child friendly shows doesn't mean this will be juvenile.
Timm will do what he's always done when it comes to great DC animated shows.
It was pretty clear from the initial press release that this would be family friendly. When did "family friendly" = wacky TTG! humour?
This is going for that all ages B:TAS vibe. It doesn't matter what show it airs alongside of.
I hate to complain, but I really hope that new featurette is substantial, otherwise the special features are quite disappointing.
The 'Mortal Kombat' films got multiple featurettes, gag reels and audio commentaries. I mean...?
This actually sounds pretty great to me. A family friendly Sunday night block is the perfect place for this new Batman show.
This should get some proper exposure between HBO Max and 'Acme-Night' on CN.
