At Dragon Con a few weeks ago, I was delighted to catch up with voice actor John Dimaggio (a.k.a. Bender from Futurama) once again. John was at the con for several voice actor and Futurama panels, and also to continue spreading the word about his new voice actor documentary, I Know That Voice, which I interviewed him and the other producers about during San Diego Comic-Con. John was actually selling limited collector’s edition/advance copies of the documentary at the con, so not only did I check in with him on further documentary news, but I also snagged a copy of the film! Read on for our short I Know That Voice follow-up interview, and my review of the documentary!
What has the reception to the I Know That Voice documentary been at Dragon Con, and have you sold some of the advance copies?
It’s been really wonderful. »

Nickelodeon, it would appear, loves Sanjay and Craig as much as everyone else as it is giving the freshman series the chance to strut around with a second season renewal. There’s no denying the animated comedy is a little on the silly side – there’s plenty of gross jokes and slapstick humor – but it’s also smart in the way it doesn’t treat its target audience like, well, kids. It doesn’t talk down to anyone and just simply is. Because of that, there are some adults who give the series their blessing. That’s pretty awesome when you think about it. Few children’s programs can be tolerated by grown ups.
According to THR, Sanjay and Craig was given a 20 episode order for its second season, just in time for the final eight episodes of Season 1 to begin airing – Sept. 14 is date the series returns after taking a two month break. »

The show's producers are out to make Anarky, the "Joker" of the first season; he'll be the main antagonist throughout the first introductory episodes. This guy, who we assumed was Ultra-Humanite is actually Silver Monkey, a member of the League of Assassins. This character makes Professor Pyg and Mr. Toad look like A-listers because I was pretty sure he was an original creation till a quick search revealed that the character appeared in "Detective Comics #685" back in 1995. Here's a bit more background on the villains as disclosed by USA Today: "The eco-terrorist duo of Professor Pyg (Brian George) and Mr. Toad (Udo Kier) — who first appeared in Grant Morrison's recent Batman & Robin comic — tussle with Batman in Saturday's premiere episode, and will be followed by the likes of the politically charged Anarky (CSI's Wallace Langham), the jewel thief Magpie (Grey DeLisle), and Ra's al Ghul (Lance »
The Dark Knight returns to TV screens this weekend with the premiere of Beware the Batman, and during an interview with Voices from Krypton, producer Mitch Watson (Scooby Doo! Mystery Incorporated) has spoken about the development of the CG-animated show, revealing that one of the early ideas for the series was to have the Caped Crusader teaming up with the Man of Steel for a new twist on the World's Finest pairing.
"The first version was an Escape From New York kind of thing, which was a lot of fun, but I agree it was probably too dark for where they wanted to go with the show,” states Watson. “Then we came up with the lighter version of the show, which was Batman – specifically Bruce Wayne – and Clark Kent at the beginning of their careers. The show revolved around Clark as a cub reporter coming to Gotham City, where he meets Bruce. »

"I think Glen and I had a familiarity with all the different iterations of Batman, and then you kind of push them aside and go, 'Okay, what are the key components of this character, the key components that people are familiar with? We’ll keep those and then, we’ll make it our own.'" states Watson. "To be perfectly frank with you, the action genre of television cartoons right now is sort of on the verge of extinction, so I’m really »

Best known for his work as Batman in most of DC's animated work as well as the Arkham game series, Kevin Conroy was at SacAnime to talk about his long career voicing The Dark Knight. Joining Conroy was voice actress Grey Delisle, who voiced Catwoman in Arkham City. During the panel they were asked if there was any plans to do another Arkham game. "If we talked about it, we would have to kill you," Conroy joked. He went on to say he, "is not aware of anything." A fan pushed him further and asked about the possibility of a Justice League game, where he once again shrugged it off and said he didn't know. DeLisle on the other hand was a little more forthcoming. "We can't say," she said. "Because if I wasn't involved in a Justice League thing I would just say I wasn't involved." This in now »
