Ok, so I'm not at San Diego Comic Con, instead I'm landlocked in the midwest during a massive heat wave. If you're reading this, you're probably not at the con either, so we're in the same boat, reading news online, lol. Here are some great pics from this morning's DC Collectibles panel courtesy of AFI. It has also been documented that the Batman: The Animated Series Mr. Freeze and Poison Ivy figures were on display this week, but were not allowed to be photographed yet. I'm guessing they have a public reveal planned in some publication later this fall/winter. The panel did reveal The New Batman Adventures Catwoman and Riddler figures, as well as an amazing Batman: Tas Batman expressions set. »

Earlier this month, just weeks after it was announced that Batman: The Killing Joke would be Warner Bros.' next DC Universe Original Movie, the first trailer debuted, giving us a look at Mark Hamill's Joker and Kevin Conroy's Batman. This animated movie has quickly become one of the most highly-anticipated projects of the year, even though we still don't know when it may arrive. Today, we have the second trailer for Batman: The Killing Joke, featuring even more exciting new footage.
Mark Hamill and Kevin Conroy have become well-known for their voice work, since their first collaboration on the hit 1990s show Batman: The Animated Series. They also reprised their voice roles on The New Batman Adventures, the Justice League animated series and a number of video games, including last year's Batman: Arkham Knight. We know this movie is R-Rated, but the footage below, courtesy of Yahoo! »
Last month, it was confirmed that Mark Hamill and Kevin Conroy will return to provide the voices for The Joker and Batman in the upcoming animated movie Batman: The Killing Joke, and we also got to see the first photo. While Warner Bros. hasn't announced a release date quite yet, the studio has released the first trailer, on the Bruce Wayne YouTube page. The project was announced last year during the world premiere screening of Justice League: Gods and Monsters.
Shortly after this DC Universe Original Movie adaptation was announced, based on the Alan Moore graphic novel Batman: The Killing Joke, Mark Hamill confirmed that he will reprise his iconic voice role as The Joker, and that he had already started recording his lines for the animated movie. Last month we got confirmation from Mark Hamill's Twitter that Kevin Conroy will return to voice Batman. The Bruce Wayne YouTube »
As we near the debut of Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Sepia Tones my mind races towards those pure gems of the Dark Knight that already exist in the ether of Animatia. Animatia is, of course, the fictitious country where all cartoons come from. Paul Dini is the dictator there – as he should be – and he rules with a dynamically drawn fist. And here, on this wonderful island, sit the tomes that built a generation of Bat-fans. Some (me) would say these tomes were truly the best generation of adaptations and explorations of Batman. I’d like to pontificate, ruminate, and extrapolate to you those episodes of Batman: The Animated Series (and The New Batman Adventures) that truly defined a cartoon legacy.

Last year during the world premiere screening of Justice League: Gods and Monsters, Warner Bros. announced that its next DC Universe Original Movie will be an adaptation of the iconic Alan Moore graphic novel Batman: The Killing Joke. Just a few weeks later, Mark Hamill confirmed that he will reprise his iconic voice role as The Joker, and that he had already started recording his lines for the animated movie. Now we have confirmation from Mark Hamill's Twitter that Kevin Conroy will return to voice Batman. Mark Hamill also issued a statement to Comic Book Resources about returning to voice The Joker.
"The chance to work once again with Kevin Conroy, my favorite Batman, in what some consider the definitive origin of this iconic villain is a dream come true for me. I am beyond thrilled to return as The Joker in The Killing Joke!'"

Throughout the countdown to Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, I’ve recommended several graphic novels to read such as The Dark Knight Returns, Public Enemies and Kingdom Come. This entry, I’m going to switch it up by recommending a viewing of The New Batman Adventures and Superman: The Animated Series crossover, ‘World’s Finest’. This three-part story, also stitched together as The Batman/Superman Movie, is notable for being the first step towards a shared DC Animated Universe, a collection of several animated series that all tied into each other from 1992 – 2006.
