Kevin Conroy says Warner Bros. has no plans for more Batman: Arkham games

11 September 2017 8:45 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Although Rocksteady had decided to call it a day on the series with Batman: Arkham Knight, it’s been unclear as to whether Warner Bros. would be planning any further entries in the Arkham franchise, such as the prequel Batman: Arkham Origins, which was developed by WB Games Montreal.

Well, if you were hoping to pay another visit to Gotham City, you may be disappointed to hear that, according to voice actor Kevin Conroy, we may have seen the last of the Arkham franchise.

“I can’t believe that they’re not going to do another one, but they’re not. Isn’t that amazing?” said Conroy at Wizard World Nashville (via Batman-News). “They made literally billions of dollars on those games, but no, there’s no plan to do another one. Sorry.”

Kevin Conroy Nearly Played The Role Like Adam West In Batman: The Animated Series

5 September 2017 4:57 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

This week is a very special time for superhero cartoon lovers, as September 6th marks the 25th anniversary of the highly acclaimed Batman: The Animated Series. Still beloved by fans to this day and often lauded as one of the greatest animated shows of all-time, Btas is known for its distinct “Dark Deco” animation style and its mature storytelling.

In fact, it was such a different take in comparison to how Batman had been portrayed on television in the past that the show’s star Kevin Conroy originally assumed that Btas would take its cues from the classic 1960s Adam West series, famous for its high levels of camp and kitsch. The actor revealed the news while talking with The Hollywood Reporter, saying:

“As a kid, I had a very conservative Irish-Catholic upbringing. So when [Batman: Tas producer] Bruce Timm asked me what I knew about Batman, I immediately mentioned the TV show and he screamed, »

'Batman' at 25: Hirings, Firings and Other Last-Minute Changes Behind the Animated Classic

5 September 2017 6:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

Many actors have worn the cape and cowl — but for fans of Batman: The Animated Series, there is only one true Batman: Kevin Conroy.

Batman: The Animated Series is considered the greatest comic book cartoon of the '90s, and many consider it the greatest of all time. Animator and writer Bruce Timm had a vision for a noir-heavy take on the DC character, one that would depart from Adam West's 1960s campiness and inject a dose of Tim Burton's gothic-tinged Batman films.

Running from 1992-95, the series won four Emmys, including outstanding animated program (1993), and launched a 25-year »

Joss Whedon getting writing credit on Justice League, “super dark” Joker origin movie, X-Men: Dark Phoenix updates and more – Daily News Roundup

31 August 2017 12:25 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Whedon Writing Credit

The Justice League reshoot rumours have been rife since they were first announced. Zack Snyder stepped down as director following the tragic death of his daughter – with Joss Whedon stepping in – and rumours began to spread that the reshoots were significant including a completely new ending. Since then we’ve heard that Whedon could get a co-director credit, and we’ve also been told by Ray Fisher that the virtually no changes have been made. In fact the word earlier this week was that the reshoots haven’t changed much and followed Synder’s vision. But now a new rumour from Batman-on-Film has said Whedon will get a writing credit alongside Chris Terrio – which would suggest he has had a significant role to play in the shaping of Justice League.

Review: Batman and Harley Quinn

30 August 2017 12:27 PM, PDT | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

Warner Animation’s just-released Batman and Harley Quinn is an interesting project from the standpoint of it being a more mature sequel to the Batman: The Animated Series while still fitting into the now cohesive DC Animated Universe. It has the look and feel of the classic series while the content and themes are vastly different in keeping with Harley’s prominence in all-things DC these days along with upping the stakes in a longer production.

That said, the production is very entertaining and a welcome 30th film in the line of animated projects (the DC Universe: 10th Anniversary Collection is expected in November).

It’s a lot of fun to have Bruce Timm, Harley’s co-creator back in action as a co-scriptwriter. Sam Liu is also back to direct so we have a lot of veteran talent to bring tremendous affection to the project and it shows in every detail. »

Batman and Harley Quinn Review: A Campy, Sex-Fueled 90s Nostalgia Trip

30 August 2017 6:53 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Warner Bros. Animation goes 90s retro with Batman and Harley Quinn. It is written by Bruce Timm and Jim Krieg, who created the classic Batman: The Animated Series. The characters and style are drawn from the 1992 television show, but it is much more lighthearted. The film is quite campy. It is tonally very different from the recent batch of thematically dark cartoons of the DC Universe. Some scenes are laugh out loud funny, while others are over the top silly. It is a muddled effort that doesn't quite gel. The third act falls apart completely. I appreciate the humor, but there needed to be a more cohesive story.

Kevin Conroy and Loren Lester return as Batman and Nightwing. The dynamic duo investigates a break in at a top secret lab by Poison Ivy (Paget Brewster) and Floronic Man, aka Jason Woodrue (Kevin Michael Richardson). The files stolen lead to another »

Exclusive: Kevin Conroy explains why Batman: Mask of the Phantasm is the best Batman movie

29 August 2017 10:37 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Last week Flickering Myth’s Amon Warmann was lucky enough to chat with legendary Batman voice actor Kevin Conroy about the latest instalment in the DC Universe Animated Original Movies line Batman and Harley Quinn. During the discussion, they also spoke about their favourite Batman movie – 1993’s Batman: Mask of the Phantasm.

Amon Warmann: My favourite Batman movie – animated or otherwise – is Batman: Mask of the Phantasm. What are your memories of working on that?

Kevin Conroy: I agree with you – I think that is the best Batman movie, live action or animated. You get the whole genesis of the Batman story in that one film. And then you’ve got the drama, falling in love with Andrea Beaumont, wanting to have a normal life, pleading with his parents grave to release him from the vow and then realising he’s doomed to avenge their deaths. He’s trapped in his fate. »

29 August 2017 8:06 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Kevin Conroy has been lending his voice to the Dark Knight for 25 years now, appearing in everything from Batman: The Animated Series to the acclaimed Arkham video games and a host of animated features, including last year’s Batman: The Killing Joke and this month’s Batman and Harley Quinn, which reunites him with Batman: Tas co-creator Bruce Timm.

Flickering Myth’s Amon Warmann was lucky enough to speak to Kevin this past week to discuss Batman and Harley Quinn, during which he revealed that there are still several iconic Batman stories he’d like to tick off his bucket list.

You’ve been voicing the character for so long and we’ve seen him in so many different situations. Is there anything you still want to explore with the character?

There’s stories I still want to do. Hush would be cool. Death in the Family would be cool. »
