Kevin Conroy wants Batman role in The Killing Joke

20 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Earlier today it was reported that Mark Hamill is set to reprise his role as The Joker for the upcoming animated adaptation of Batman: The Killing Joke, and now legendary Batman voice actor Kevin Conroy has admitted that he’d love to reunite with Hamill as the voice of the Dark Knight.

“Oh, God! Are you kidding me? I’d do it in a heartbeat,” said the Batman: The Animated Series star in an interview with Comic Book. “I love working with him. I couldn’t believe when they killed off The Joker. I would love to do it, and I hope that that happens.”

Well, we’ve already got Hamill, so surely we need Conroy too, right?

Batman: The Killing Joke will be released direct-to-video in 2016.

Mark Hamill Is the Joker in 'Batman: Killing Joke' Animated Movie

27 July 2015 7:18 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

During the world premiere of Justice League: Gods and Monsters at Comic-Con, Bruce W. Timm revealed that the next DC Universe Original Movie will be an adaptation of Batman: The Killing Joke. He also announced that the animated movie will feature, "an original 15-minute prologue that helps set up the story, giving even longtime fans something new to look forward to." No voice cast members were announced at the time, but today Collider reports that Mark Hamill has signed on to voice The Joker.

Mark Hamill Will Voice The Joker In Batman: The Killing Joke Animated Feature

27 July 2015 3:40 PM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Fans rejoice! Mark Hamill will indeed provide the voice for The Joker in DC's animated take on Alan Moore's The Killing Joke, which is due out next year. The Star Wars: The Force Awakens actor had already expressed interest in reprising the iconic role for the movie, but sources have confirmed to Collider that it's definitely going to happen - in fact, word is he's already recorded his voice acting! Mark Hamill has voiced the character on many different occasions, from Batman: The Animated Series, to the likes of Batman: Mask of the Phantasm, The New Batman Adventures, Batman Beyond: Return of the Joker, Birds of Prey, and more recently the Arkham Asylum video games. Alan Moore's graphic novel is widely considered to be the definitive Joker story, so it's great to hear that Hamill will be back. Now, fingers crossed that Kevin Conroy will also return as Batman! »

Sdcc: Batman: The Killing Joke animated film announced alongside Batman: Bad Blood and Justice League vs Titans

11 July 2015 2:05 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

For years, Batman fans have wished for an adaptation of the famous graphic novel Batman: The Killing Joke, perhaps the most famous Joker story in the Clown Prince of Crime’s history. DC just announced that next year fans will finally get what they want with an animated adaptation of the renowned story.

Written by the legendary Alan Moore, The Killing Joke sees Joker escape Arkham Asylum once again, but instead of targeting Batman himself or plotting to destroy Gotham City, Joker’s plot is on a much smaller scale. He intends to prove a simple point to Batman and the rest of the world: all it takes is one bad day for any sane person to snap. To achieve this goal, The Joker sets out to torment Commissioner Gordon through his daughter, Barbara, who also happens to be Batgirl. In one of his most deplorable and infamous acts, »

Book Review – How To Be A Superhero

James Garcia reviews Mark Edlitz’ new book, How To Be A Superhero…

Each day, the internet is flooded with news stories about each and every piece of development surrounding an upcoming comic book adaptation or superhero film. We here at Flickering Myth spend our days dissecting and discussing those various topics with as much fervor and excitement as any fan out there. Yet, while there are dozens of stories or quotes circling the web at any given time, they usually only pertain to one part of a larger story; actors give brief updates about their upcoming roles, writers and directors talk about various influences, etc.

Enter Mark Edlitz, whose impressive tome How To Be A Superhero puts all of those news reports to shame by diving headfirst into the expansive superhero genre with long, in-depth interviews with dozens of the genre’s veterans, like Adam West, Jack Nicholson, John Wesley Shipp, »

Batman: Arkham Knight PlayStation 4 review

26 June 2015 12:08 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

The final part of Rocksteady's Arkham trilogy is here, and it features a lot more Batmobile...

I think we can all agree that Batman: Arkham Origins was a bit of a misstep. It was decent, yes, but it did nothing for the series, and the content that what there was simply so-so. This is clearly not lost on original developer, Rocksteady, as the 'trilogy' is now at an end with the latest, and fourth game, Arkham Knight. Origins isn't counted, either due to its prequel status, or the fact is just wasn't as good. Whatever the case may be, here we have the culmination of Rocksteady's Batman vision, and possibly the best entry into the series yet.

H-bomb on wheels

Much has been made by Rocksteady of the major addition to Arkham Knight, and that's the Batmobile. With a world much lager in size than the previous games, Batman »

Video Games: 'The Joker' Returns In Epic New Trailer For Batman: Arkham Knight

15 June 2015 7:51 PM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Batman: Arkham Knight is the final installment in the Batman “Arkham” video game series, which began with Batman: Arkham Asylum, Batman: Arkham City, and a prequel title, Batman: Arkham Origins. The series will bring its trademark style to the Batmobile for the first time ever, giving players the option to either grapple above the streets of Gotham or tear through them in the armored behemoth (but let’s be honest, they’ll go with the latter). The Scarecrow, who hasn’t been seen since Arkham Asylum, will ascend as the game’s primary villain, along with the mysterious new Arkham Knight character. Kevin Conroy will once again bring The Dark Knight to life as the voice of Batman.   »

Celebrities Love Batman: Arkham Knight

12 June 2015 5:48 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Taking a new approach at marketing the Caped Crusader’s next interactive outing, Batman: Arkham Knight developer Rocksteady Games and publisher Warner Bros. Interactive employed the assistance of the game’s voice actors and other celebrities. The result is a video that combines some great-looking gameplay snippets with complimentary reactions, comments and exclamations from some familiar faces.

YouTube fans will recognize IJustine, while rap fans will recognize Wiz Khalifa, who’s also prominently featured here. They’re joined by Neil Patrick Harris, Breckin Meyer, Minka Kelly, Kumail Nanjiani and, of course, both Troy Baker and Kevin Conroy. They all seem very impressed with the final result, but that’s not surprising given the nature of the video as well as Rocksteady’s stellar track record with the Batman license.

Enjoy, then make sure to stay tuned for more information pertaining to Batman: Arkham Knight as we approach its June 23rd launch date. »

Wiz Khalifa Is a Natural at Batman: Arkham Knight

12 June 2015 12:28 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

To promote Batman: Arkham Knight, SNL's Taran Killam rounded up a bunch of celebs and made them play the game. Neil Patrick Harris, Wiz Khalifa, Blake Anderson, Minka Kelly, Kumail Nanjiani, Breckin Meyer, Joe Manganiello, iJustine, Troy Baker, and Kevin Conroy are all on deck — some better gamers than others. The best is hands down Wiz, who has major skills as well as his own sound effects (actually, I guess it's unclear if he's doing sound effects or trying to get Fetty Wap's attention). He just makes virtual crime-fighting look so effortless and graceful. More important, though, the game (out June 23) looks divine. »

Batman: Arkham Knight Takes Neil Patrick Harris and Other Celebrities to Gotham

11 June 2015 1:24 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Batman: Arkham Knight will soon be upon us (I’m still on the fence about whether or not to pre-order it), but in the meantime, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and Rocksteady Studios are bringing in the celebrity endorsements for a new trailer directed by Saturday Night Live’s Taran Killam. In the video, we see Neil Patrick Harris, Wiz Khalifa, Blake Anderson, Minka Kelly, Kumail Nanjiani, Breckin Meyer, Joe Manganiello, iJustine, Troy Baker, and Kevin Conroy “Be the Batman”, although only one name on that list has actually been the goddamn Batman. But everyone else can play pretend and still enjoy what looks like a fun game, although is it good enough to warrant a purchase, especially if, like me, you’d have to get a next-gen system? How badly do I want to play a game that feels the need to cram in Riddler time trials for the Batmobile? »

Ed Catto: The Batman Nobody Knows… Yours

1 June 2015 5:00 AM, PDT | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

One of the marketing trends today is for consumers to take a brand and make it their own. An example is the phenomenon of customizing phones. I’m sure that just about everyone you know has selected a cellphone case so that their phone has really become their phone. And a few years ago, I had a role in a Kia Soul marketing campaign. The big idea was that you, as a car owner, could customize the Soul in whatever way worked best for you. And there’s more of this brand customization in the future. Centennials, the group that comes after Millennials, are even more passionate about personalizing brands.

Geek Culture’s passionate fans already have their own personalized visions of popular entertainment brands and characters. They are a finicky bunch, especially when it comes to change. Long gone are the days when they blindly accepted reboots or revisions »

How to be a Superhero

By Mark Edlitz

Bear Manor Media, 586 pages, $42.95/$29.95

Longtime readers of pop culture magazines have no doubt read interviews with actors who have donned capes, cowls, spandex, and prosthetics to portray heroes and villains drawn from comic books. I certainly was involved in my fair share of such interviews working at Starlog Press and its successors have continued, especially contemporary online outlets which are enjoying a bonanza of options.

Most of those interviews tend to be about the most immediate project with little insight or context about an actor’s association with a media property or being the latest in a long line to play the same role. And certainly, these interviews are sandwiched between news, features, and other topics. So, it’s a bit of a surprise that such a collection has not been attempted before.

Batman: Arkham Knight Gameplay Trailer: “Time to Go to War”

28 May 2015 8:07 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and DC Entertainment have released a new Batman: Arkham Knight gameplay trailer. The conclusion of Rocksteady’s Arkham Trilogy has Batman (voiced by Kevin Conroy) squaring off against Scarecrow (voiced by John Noble), who has gathered all of Batman’s living foes (no Joker this time, kids) to take down the Dark Knight once and for all. This new trailer quickly covers a lot of ground by showing a mix of the slightly upgraded aspects like combat and flight mixed with the game’s big new feature, the Batmobile. This video gives us a good sense of how it will be used in combat, and I like how it has different weapons as well as the ability to strafe. As I’ve said before, vehicle controls can be tough, but if Rocksteady has figured out how to handle the Batmobile, it could be a big asset to the game. »
