San Diego Comic-Con is well underway and the first trailer to come out of the event based on a DC Comics property pertains to that of the much anticipated animated series Justice League Action. One viewing of the footage provided certainly gives the impression that the show’s producers certainly aren’t skimping on the “action” aspect.
Aside from Teen Titans Go!, airwaves have been mostly bereft of new animated content featuring DC heroes ever since Beware The Batman was unfortunately cancelled after only one season. With Zack Snyder’s Justice League arriving in theaters in November 2017, it’s a pretty wise move by Warner Bros. to allow DC’s premiere superhero team to permeate the public’s consciousness through various forms of media far in advance.
This new series not only focuses on the Trinity – Superman, Batman, and Wonder Woman – but also brings in a wealth of characters from around the DC Universe, »

You remember Voltron, right? Just in case you're not quite as ancient as I am, it was a cartoon about a bunch of astronauts flying around in color-coded space-lions, who then combined to form one giant robot named Voltron. And yes, it was just as awesome as it sounds. Now Netflix have teamed up with Dreamworks Animation for a brand new animated series titled Voltron: Legendary Defender, and we have the first full trailer and updated cast/character list below. • Princess Allura – Kimberly Brooks (Ben 10: Omniverse, Justice League: War) • Coran, the chief advisor to the princess – Rhys Darby (What We Do in the Shadows, Flight of the Conchords) • Shiro, Black Lion pilot – Josh Keaton (Green Lantern: The Animated Series, Transformers Prime) • Hunk, Yellow Lion pilot – Tyler Labine (Reaper, Tucker & Dale vs. Evil) • Lance, Blue Lion pilot – Jeremy Shada (Finn in Adventure Time, Batman: The Brave and the Bold) • Pidge, »
Morning all, lovely weather out today. Birds are singing, coffee in my cup, and just Voltron! So awhile ago I wrote up a story about the new Netflix series Voltron Legendary Defender and there was a fair bit of excitement too cause giant machines combining to for even more giant robots is kind of my thing. I had a high praise for the voice cast, animation style, and mecha design which while different held a standard of tradition that would help keep the purist fans happy. Well this morning we got the first trailer so watch that and my rambling fanboy praise will continue afterwards.
Okay so I no longer need any more info and demand immediate access to this right now. Now let me say that there seems to be an addition to the team and we’ll go into that in a second. But the voice acting seems »

Now that the DC Animated Universe has solidified its characters and reality, it makes sense to go exploring. After all, if there’s a Robin, surely there must be other teen heroes. We meet some of them in the newly released Justice League vs Teen Titans.
Robin (Stewart Allen) is the focal point as his go-it-alone and I-know-better-than-everyone-else attitude actually gets him into trouble on a case that foreshadows the arrival of the demon Trigon (Jon Bernthal). A frustrated Batman (Jason O’Mara) arranges for Damian to spend time with Starfire (Kari Wahlgren) and the Teen Titans. Interestingly, this interpretation of the Tamaranean princess positions her a caring, mentor figure as opposed to the current fish-out-of-water incarnation or the innocent warrior she was originally seen as. She is training the next generation composed of the Jamie Reyes Blue Beetle (Jake T. Austin), Beast Boy (Brandon Soo Hoo), and Raven (Taissa Farmiga).

Friday, March 25, 2016 – Live from the packed WonderCon 2016 Voltron panel, executive Producer Joaquim Dos Santos (The Legend of Korra, Avatar: The Last Airbender), Co-Executive Producer Lauren Montgomery (The Legend of Korra), and writer Tim Hedrick (The Legend of Korra, Avatar: The Last Airbender) sat alongside newly unveiled cast members to showcase never-before-seen artwork and footage of DreamWorks Animation’s all-new Netflix Original Series Voltron: Legendary Defender, debuting June 10, 2016.
Dos Santos shared “As children of the 80’s who grew up with Voltron what was there not to love? You had 5 awesome lions, piloted by 5 awesome heroes who combined to form a giant, sword wielding Titan! It unapologetically married Sci-fi and Fantasy in one incredibly over the top, bombastic package. Fans of the new series [Voltron: Legendary defender] can look for us to keep all those elements but also expect a much more fleshed out universe with a rich backstory and characters who will evolve over the course of the series. »

Many fans were shocked when the third full-length trailer for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice revealed Doomsday as one of the main villains. Ever since, people have been wondering about the identity behind the person who brought this CGI monstrosity to life. Today, that actor has come forward to confirm his part in helping to create Doomsday for the big screen.
The man behind Doomsday is none other than Robin Atkin Downes. And he already has a quite storied history with the Batman franchise. On the animated side of things, he first voiced characters for the 2008 Batman: The Brave and The Bold TV series, playing such DC villains as Firefly and the Weather Wizard. In 2011's Batman: Year One, he played District Attorney Harvey Dent. He voiced Oliver Queen in Batman: The Dark Knight Returns, Part 2. Most recently, he voiced several characters in this year's Batman: Bad Blood, bringing http://movieweb. »
The newly integrated DC Animated Universe expands with its latest offering, Batman: Bad Blood. While Batman (Jason O’Mara) can work best as a loner, he casts a long enough shadow that somehow involves others to take up the mantle of the Bat. We’ve seen Nightwing (Sean Maher), the former first Robin, and the addition of Bruce Wayne’s son Damian (Stuart Allan) as the new Robin has added an edge.
The new animated film, out now from Warner Home Entertainment, has been sold as the major introduction of Batwoman (Yvonne Strahovski) but we also get Batwing (Gaius Charles) and at the end a cameo from Batgirl. As a result, it’s actually beginning to feel a little too busy with so many players there’s not enough time to properly service them.
