Tie-in video games are nothing new in the moviemaking or televisual world. Through these spin-off products, we can play out adventures featuring our favourite characters without having to leave the house.
Most of the time, though, said characters don’t sound quite right. For financial reasons, you’ll often see a different voice cast step in to replace the overly expensive stars from the original film or TV version. Admittedly, these stand-ins do a very good job from time to time. But you can always tell the difference.
Sometimes, though, providing a rare treat for fans, actors can be convinced – by money, passion or a good script - to reprise their iconic film or TV characters once more for a video game adventure. Here are 32 games that featured instances of this incredibly fun phenomenon… »
Every time a four-color property moves from print to other media, changes are made, mostly a result of the different medium being employed. Sometimes the changes stagger the imagination while others are subtle and acceptable. Warner Animation has more often than not been incredibly faithful to the source material, resulting in some of the most satisfying comics-to-screen adaptations.
As a result, the anticipation for a Blu-ray release of the excellent Justice League Unlimited has been high and finally, last week, Warner Archive released the show in a three-disc collection. The series, which ran July 31, 2004 – May 13, 2006, is the follow-up to the equally wonderful Justice League.
While the original series focused on the traditional original members of the Jla, the new series expanded its roster to just about every hero from the DC Universe. For many viewers, it was the first time they were exposed to many of these colorful characters. For we fanboys, »

Take another look @ "Superman/Batman: Apocalypse", the animated feature based on the 'Superman', 'Batman' DC Comics' storyline "The Supergirl from Krypton", adapting illustrations by Michael Turner, starring Andre Braugher, Kevin Conroy, Tim Daly and Summer Glau:
"...weeks after the events that led to the arrest of Lex Luthor, the impeachment of his presidency...
"...and Batman's success in saving the world from the impact of an arriving meteor, a spaceship lands in 'Gotham City Harbor'.
"While 'Batman investigates the sunken craft, a young girl with no knowledge of English or any other human languages emerges from the water..."

On Saturday and Sunday of New York Comic Con, the stakes get higher and the lines get longer as big studios, like Marvel, WB, and 20th Century Fox, bring out their movie and TV stars to sign autographs and appear on panels about their upcoming blockbusters and fall TV hits. You can catch the pilot of Fox’s Lucifer and CBS’ Supergirl based on the DC Comics properties, or decided to kick old school with several reunions of shows and movies, including Clueless, All That, and two masterpieces of nerdy TV that made my list.
6. Go to the Justice League Reunion (Friday 2 Pm Empire Stage 1-e)
For a certain generation, the versions of Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, and Justice League designed by Bruce Timm and written by Paul Dini, the late Dwayne McDuffie, and others are the definitive ones. For over a decade, they infused heart, humor, and a touch »

With the final part of Kevin Smith’s True North Trilogy set to go into production soon with Moose Jaws, longtime fans of the director’s work were pleased to hear that Jay and Silent Bob would be making their return to the big screen. However, we may have some bad news.
“I just finished writing the scene where — spoilers — Silent Bob gets eaten by the moose,” he told news.com.au. “That’s how he fucking goes out!”
“Isn’t that fun? I was talking to Jay about Moose Jaws and I’m like, ‘I’m thinking about bringing us in as the Captain Quint character’,” Smith continued. “And he goes, ‘Yeah, but Quint gets killed!’ I was like, ‘One of us has to get eaten’. And he was like, ‘You. Not me’. I was like, ‘Why?’ And he was like, ‘Because I wanna be in other movies!’ Fair enough, »

To celebrate their tenth anniversary, the animated movie parody makers How It Should Have Ended have put together their own cameo-packed parody music video of Taylor Swift's Bad Blood, this time about the upcoming Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, sung from Batman's perspective. It's essentially a shot-for-shot remake, but with Batman. Many films could benefit from this approach. It's so far racked up over 1.4 million views in under 2 days.
As Brooklyn Nine-Nine puts it: “She makes me feel things, okay?!”; “She makes us *all* feel things!”
In The Lego Movie, »
While Christopher Nolan’s gritty Dark Knight Trilogy is beloved, Tim Burton’s kooky Batman films have ardent fans and Joel Schumacher’s campy sequels… exist, a lot of Bat-fans claim that the all-time best version of the caped crusader on-screen is the animated series which ran from 1992 and on-off all the way until 1999.
Helmed to near-perfection by Paul Dini and Bruce Timm, and sporting the acting talent of Kevin Conroy as Batman, Mark Hamill as the Joker, Arleen Sorkin as Harley Quinn and many others besides, it expertly strode the line between winning the hearts of superhero-loving children and those of hardened adult comic book fans. It may have undergone a more kid-friendly redesign in its later seasons (being retitled The New Batman Adventures) but the quality generally held out.
And it, of course, began the run of numerous shows – such as the brilliant Batman Beyond – that »

Is billionaire Donald Trump the closest thing we have to a real-life Bruce Wayne/Batman? Probably (Definitely) not, but don't tell Trump. In a recent campaign stop in Iowa, Trump was captured on camera, telling a young William Bowman (9) that he was Batman. Some one needs to let this kid know that there's more to being Batman than having a ton of money. This is what happes when we no longer have After-School and Saturday Morning cartoons. America is failing its youth. "I Am Batman"- @realDonaldTrump #BatTrump The story is on http://t.co/H1qbFAYqzt including video! pic.twitter.com/qf7H0z2djF — Monte D. Goodyk (@thefullmonte) August 17, 2015 Well, last night on the Jimmy Kimmel Live! show, the comedian host used footage from Batman: The Animated Series to show what a Donald Trump Batman would look like. It's not pretty. Weighing in on the humorous depiction is »

Turbo Fast, the animated spin-off from the theatrical film CG film Turbo, has seen its second season premiere on Netflix, which means that all of it is available for immediate streaming. Before checking out the show and Kevin's episode, however, see what he has to say on the connection between Batman and The Stinger and so much more. Interview Conducted by and © Edward Gross Voices From Krypton: So in watching The Stinger, the impression I get is that he would be Batman…..if Batman banged his head really, really hard. Kevin Conroy: [laughs] That's a very good way of putting it. That's a very good way of putting it. Isn't this character great? You take everything I'm not allowed to do as Batman, you know? Batman is humble. Batman doesn't want any attention. Batman just does everything and wants to disappear. This guy is arrogant. He's cocky. He's a narcissist. »

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.

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.
The actor revealed on his own Twitter page earlier this month that he had his "fingers crossed" for the opportunity to come back and voice The Joker. The actor had previously voiced the nefarious villain in Batman: The Animated Series and the Batman: Arkham video game series. While unconfirmed by the studio, this report reveals that the actor has already started recording his voice work for Batman: The Killing Joke, »
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! »
