Pretty much at the start of the video above from this weekened's Dallas Comic Con, longtime animated and video game Dcu voice actor Kevin Conroy revealed that he'd spent the last "9-10 months" working on the next "Arkham" game.
While Conroy doesn't call out WB Montreal's "Batman: Arkham Origins," he says that the title he's been working on has already been announced, and that the reveal of the voice cast was strictly down to the studio attempting to control the flow of information about the project. If that's the case, then when a WB Montreal rep was speaking with a South African publication about the prequel, they were either misquoted or outright lying about Conroy's involvement in the game, saying that with a younger Batman taking center stage in "Origins," they wanted to go in another direction.
Conroy's been voicing the Dark Knight in some form or other for over 20 years now, »

Directed by Tim Burton.
After the phenomenal success of the 1960s Adam West television series, it would be more than two decades before Bob Kane's Dark Knight Detective returned to the screen in live-action form, courtesy of an unproven director in Tim Burton and hugely contentious casting choice in Michael Keaton.
Despite initial fan concerns, audiences flocked to Burton's Batman in their droves as the director reinvented the Caped Crusader by taking him back to his roots as a dark vigilante of the night. The film shattered opening weekend box office records, becoming the highest grossing North America release of 1989 and »

Since Roger Ebert passed away last week, I've seen a ton of videos of some of the movie reviews he did for his show Siskel & Ebert. One that I didn't see hit the web though was a review they did for Warner Bros' animated film Batman: Mask of the Phantasm, which is easily one of the best Batman movies to have ever been made. I love how they apologize for not seeing it when it was released in theaters, but ended up praising it in the late review they did. If you haven't seen this movie yet, you should definitely watch it now! In the mean time, check out this great old school review.
