Teen Wolf’s Tyler Posey wants to play Terry McGinnis in a Batman Beyond movie

His former Teen Wolf co-star Tyler Hoechlin has taken on the role of the Man of Steel in The CW’s Supergirl TV series, and it seems that Tyler Posey has also identified a superhero role he’d like to play should the opportunity arise.

Speaking to Screen Rant to promote his new movie, the Blumhouse horror Truth or Dare, Posey expressed his excitement over the prospect of portraying a superhero, telling the outlet that: “I always got… Remember Batman Beyond? I loved Batman Beyond! That’d be fun, man, I don’t want, I don’t want to get too old before I got to pitch it.”

If you’re unfamiliar with Batman Beyond, it began life as an animated sequel to Batman: The Animated Series and takes place in a future Gotham City as teenager Terry McGinnis takes on the mantle of the Batman under the tutelege of an elderly Bruce Wayne.

Suicide Squad: Hell To Pay Blu-Ray Review

Although I love me some Batman and Justice League, I have to admit that I began to yearn for something beyond the familiarity I’d settled into in recent years when it came to the DC Universe animated films. I mean, this was the same line that brought us gems such as Green Lantern: First Flight and Wonder Woman (2009), so, as you can imagine, I was more than willing to see these folks once again broaden their horizon.

Fortunately, Suicide Squad: Hell to Pay has proven to be just what the doctor ordered: An unapologetic, no-holds-barred love letter to the rougher side of DC’s pantheon that’ll appeal to diehard and casual viewers alike. Well, to be more specific, those who are of appropriate age.

As you may be aware, Warner Bros. have been willing to afford the filmmakers the ability to reach for the R-rating with some of

Eaglemoss celebrates Batman: The Animated Series with new figurine collection

More than 25 years after its premiere, Batman: The Animated Series remains one of the finest animated shows to grace the small screen, and for their latest Hero Collector range, the folks at Eaglemoss have turned their attention to the classic show, delivering a series of 1/16 scale figures featuring the iconic heroes and villains of Gotham City!

Included in the first wave of six metallic resign figures are Batman, The Penguin, Harley Quinn, Poison Ivy, The Joker and Robin, with each standing at around 7 inches in height and recreating the classic Bruce Timm designs from the award-winning show.

The figurines themselves look rather splendid, with excellent sculpts of the characters, and very impressive paintwork – an area that often lets down these kind of collections. That definitely isn’t the case here though; the designers at Eaglemoss have managed to perfectly capture the simple, clean art style of the show, and they

Mark Hamill says his Joker was partly inspired by Jay Leno

Mark Hamill’s beloved version of the Joker was apparently inspired partly by Jay Leno.

There have been many a memorably version of Batman’s arch nemesis on both big screen and small, but one of the absolute favourites of fans has to be Mark Hamill’s spin on the character in Batman: The Animated Series.

Hamill’s Joker voice is instantly recognisable and apparently he was influenced and inspired by comedian Jay Leno and classic horror actor Claude Rains:

“I would imitate the old Universal horror films and I realize, in retrospect, I wasn’t doing it consciously, but Claude Rains as The Invisible Man…[imitates Rains] ‘Crazy? You think I’m crazy? I’ll show you who’s crazy!'” Hamill revealed to Sway’s Universe. “So he had sort of the grit that I incorporated into it and I said to voiceover people later, I would do a character,

Mark Hamill Reveals The Inspirations Behind His Portrayal Of The Joker

General audiences know him best as the heroic Luke Skywalker from the Star Wars saga, but DC fans idolize Mark Hamill for his turn to the Dark Side. The actor has played Batman’s nemesis the Joker across numerous media for over 25 years now, beginning with the acclaimed Batman: The Animated Series in 1992. To many, his vocal performance perfectly captures all aspects of the supervillain: his charm and humour, yet also his monstrous, murderous side.

In an interview with Sway’s Universe, Hamill talked about where exactly his portrayal of the Joker comes from. The star revealed that, back when he started doing B:tas, he was influenced by a strange mix of inspirations, including classic black-and-white horror The Invisible Man and TV personalities like Howard Cosell and Jay Leno.

“I would imitate the old Universal horror films and I realize, in retrospect, I wasn’t doing it consciously, but Claude Rains as The Invisible Man

Try Something Else – 6 Amazing New & Retro Superhero Animated Series

Awesome Collection of Art From Mondo's Batman: The Animated Series Art Show

Mondo recently held an art show paying tribute to the Batman: The Animated Series (1992-1995), which, in my opinion, is the greatest animated series of all time. It was just such a beautifully made show that told some amazing Batman stories! Harley Quinn also made her big debut in the series, and now she is one of the most popular characters in the DC universe.

The artwork you see here was wonderfully created by Phantom City Creative's Justin Erickson, who had this to say in a statement:

“For me Batman: The Animated Series is the best on screen version of Batman by far. The show featured the best Batman/Bruce Wayne, the best Gotham, the best villains, the best everything. Bruce Timm, Eric Radomski and their creative teams made something incredible that could be light hearted and fun to dark and tragic without missing a beat. I hope what we

Mark Hamill Joins Galaxy of Stars on Hollywood Walk of Fame

Mark Hamill Joins Galaxy of Stars on Hollywood Walk of Fame
There are few people more associated with stars than Mark Hamill, forever cemented in movie-goers memories as Luke Skywalker in the original “Star Wars” trilogy and now in the recent sequels. And on March 8, Hamill will be graced with another memorable star, on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

Hamill jokes that this one will also be far, far away. Asked if he knows where it’s being placed, he quips, “I think it’s going to be on the third floor behind the men’s cigarette machine.” It will actually be prominently located near Hollywood and Highland, and the honor is something Hamill is still struggling to grasp. “I’d like to say it’s a dream come true, but I didn’t even dare to dream it,” he says. “And you can get self-conscious about it, like, ‘Am I worthy of this?’”

Hamill played a gang member in the ultraviolent cult indie that uses, among other things, creative dental work as a form of torture. “I was reading the script and thought it was very Tarantino, ‘Reservoir Dogs’ style, but I didn’t think I could do it. It was way too violent and I’m married to a dental hygienist, I can’t do this dental violence! Then my daughter said, ‘How often have we heard you complain you’re not considered for Steve Buscemi or William H. Macy or Phillip Seymour Hoffman parts?’ And I said, ‘You’re right.’” And it turned out to be a wonderful experience.”

Mark Hamill Wants In On Potential Justice League Animated Series Reunion

With the recent Dceu movie turning out to be not as good as it could have been, there’s still no beating the Justice League animated series as the finest screen adaptation of DC’s super-team to date. Airing from 2001 to 2006 (if you count the revamped Justice League Unlimited as the same show), the series is still remembered fondly – hence the interest in getting the cast back together for a reunion.

As part of the ongoing social media campaign to get Warner Bros. Animation to put something together, actress Susan Eisenberg – who played Wonder Woman – shared a Tweet to whip up some support from fans. In response, one individual questioned whether Mark Hamill could be involved as well, given that he played the Joker in several episodes of the show, which was a spinoff of the acclaimed Batman: The Animated Series.

The Voices Behind Your Favorite Cartoon Characters

We all love a good cartoon and part of what makes that experience so memorable are the cartoon characters. In order to bring those digital or hand drawn creations to life, an actor needs to bring their A game and make that cartoon as real as they can be. Not an easy task. Quite often, actors who are working in animation tend to be forgotten. Not today though! This is just a small list of voice actors who are getting some love from us. Such as Hank Azaria on the Simpsons, who voices the most characters on the show and ended up getting the job thanks to the character Moe. Sean Schemmel is the North American voice actor best known for bringing Goku to the west in Dragon Ball Z and in that regard, played a huge role in popularizing the anime.
