Being Batman: The Actors Underneath the Cowl

17 August 2014 12:17 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

“What are you?’ That question has been on many a criminal’s mind for numerous decades. Out of absolute fear, these evildoers stare into the face of darkness personified, a creature of the night that is a true symbol of justice. I’m talking of course about Batman, the Dark Knight, a crimefighter who strikes fear into the hearts of those deserve it. He is a highly complex character and throughout his 75-year history, many talented (and some not so talented) actors have brought him to life on the silver screen.

Lewis Wilson Batman (1943) The first film appearance of the Caped Crusader occurred at the height of World War II in 1943, four years after the character’s creation. Lewis Wilson portrayed Batman in a 15-chapter film serial released by Columbia Pictures, in which he and trusty sidekick Robin go head to head with Dr. Daka, a demented Japanese scientist who »

Review: Batman: Assault on Arkham is Bad.....Bad Ass!

11 August 2014 3:34 PM, PDT | Legions of Gotham | See recent Legions of Gotham news »

You can pre-order this film on Amazon.com

Yeah, I said it. I'm obviously a lifelong Batman fan, especially in the realm of animation.  I'm very critical of the Dc Universe films..they're very hit and miss for  me.   This film is without a doubt my favorite of the Dc Universe films to date.  Assault on Arkham has it all..violence, sex, humor and dark twisted enjoyment for all.  This one is what 'The Losers' should have been.  Its like the Expendables with Dc Comics villains.  Top all that off with tons of villain cameos and Kevin Conroy reprising Batman, the role that he owns, and you have an absolute winner.

This review will contain some, but not all, Spoilers!  I'm not going to give you the plot points, but don't read if you don't want a few things revealed, I don't wanna have to call you a waaaaahmbulance.

Blu-ray Review: ‘Batman: Assault on Arkham’

11 August 2014 7:30 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Warner Bros. Animation’s steady assault of direct-to-Blu-ray superhero movies continues at a frenetic pace, so much so that the subjects keep pushing further into the fringes of the DC Comics universe. So it is with “Batman: Assault on Arkham,” which assigns the Dark Knight top billing, but really focuses on a thrown-together team of lesser villains given the suicide mission of conducting a raid on Arkham Asylum. Yes, Batman shows up, as do a number of better-known members of his rogues gallery. Still, the movie will play best with those who don’t need to consult Wikipedia to identify King Shark.

Aimed squarely at hard-core comics fans (and given the carnage and implied sex, clearly not intended for bat-tykes), these Warner Bros. titles are defined by their frenetic, near-nonstop action, and the short-hand they can employ. Unlike live-action features, there’s no worrying about crossing over or pausing to explain anything, »

Movie Review – Batman: Assault on Arkham (2014)

10 August 2014 2:26 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Batman: Assault on Arkham, 2014.

Directed by Jay Oliva and Ethan Spaulding.

Featuring the voice talents of Kevin Conroy, Neal McDonough, Troy Baker, Matthew Gray Gubler, Cch Pounder, John Dimaggio, Jennifer Hale, Hynden Walch, and Giancarlo Esposito.

Synopsis:

Based on the hit video game series, Batman must find a bomb planted by the Joker while dealing with a mysterious team of villains called, The Suicide Squad.

I’ve been on record before as a fan of the DC Animated offerings. Marvel seems to have perfected the theatrical experience while DC has managed to successfully parlay their characters into television, animation, and video games. The newest animated movie from DC takes a cue from the extremely successful Arkham video game series to deliver a fairly good offering in Batman: Assault on Arkham.

Fans of the video games will be happy to see this rich world given a little more exploration, though to »

9 August 2014 5:45 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Our weekly round-up of all the latest superhero news and talking points, including Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, DC Cinematic Universe, Gotham, The Flash, Arrow, Batman: Assault on Arkham, Justice League: Throne of Atlantis, Young Justice, Teen Titans Go!, Guardians of the Galaxy, Avengers: Age of Ultron, Captain America 3, Black Panther, Daredevil, Deadpool, X-Men: Days of Future Past, The Fantastic Four, The Amazing Spider-Man 2, Venom Carnage, Kick-Ass 3 and more….

Well, the big showdown between Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Captain America 3 is no more, with Warner Bros. blinking and shifting the release of BvS away from Marvel’s May 6th 2016 date to March 25th 2016 (a wise move, considering it will now face very little in the way of competition). The news was followed by the announcement that Warner Bros. has finally pulled the trigger on a DC Cinematic Universe by setting a further Nine »

david j. moore chats with legendary Batman voice actor Kevin Conroy at the San Diego Comic-Con International…

Every animated character has a voice actor behind it, giving it life. Actor Kevin Conroy has been associated with the Batman character since he voiced him over the course of 86 episodes on Batman: The Animated Series (1992-1995), and through many spin-off series’ and feature films that have followed like The New Batman Adventures (1997-1999, 24 episodes), Batman Beyond (1999-2001, 48 episodes), Justice League (2001-2006, 55 episodes) and the video games Batman: Arkham Asylum (2009) and Batman: Arkham City (2011). Warner Bros. has continued using Conroy as Batman’s (and Bruce Wayne’s) voice in direct-to-video feature films over the years, and in the new film Batman: Assault on Arkham, Conroy once again lends his distinctive baritone to give the Caped Crusader that familiar voice fans have comfortably accepted and embraced.

Interview with Batman: Assault on Arkham’s Creative Team

30 July 2014 8:25 AM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

As part of celebrating 75 Years of Batman, Assault on Arkham is primed to bring some of Batman’s most well-known villains into the spotlight. We were lucky enough to sit down with many of the folks responsible for bringing this newest animated feature to life and they’ve given us a glimpse into what we can expect to see next month.

First, if you weren’t aware this Batman film will take place in the same Bat-Universe as the stellar Rocksteady video games. Assault on Arkham unfolds between the end of Arkham Origins and the beginning of Arkham Asylum. They wouldn’t go into specifics of where in that time period it does fall, but it is certain that fan-favorite Kevin Conroy has returned to voice the Caped Crusader. In previous interviews about Arkham Origins, the developers stated that Kevin Conroy not being the voice of Batman in that game »

Comic-Con: 'Batman Vs. Robin' and 'Justice League: Gods and Monsters' Animated Movies Coming

25 July 2014 10:42 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Earlier tonight, Warner Bros. Home Entertainment held a panel and a world premiere screening for their upcoming animated adventure Batman: Assault on Arkham at Comic-Con. During the panel, the studio announced the new titles that will debut in 2015, Batman Vs. Robin and Justice League: Gods and Monsters.

Bruce W. Timm will return to direct Batman Vs. Robin, which will also feature the Court of Owls. While no story details were given, it's believed that this will be an origin story featuring Talon and the Court of Owls, possibly adapted straight from Scott Snyder's comic book. In Court of Owls, Batman and Robin don't actually square off against one another, although there is a bit of tension between the duo and Nightwing. It's believed that this may also be a completely original story based on those characters, but that has not been confirmed.

The second movie is Justice League: Gods and Monsters, »
