Actors Mark Hamill (Joker) and Kevin Conroy (Batman) have both played these characters for over 25 years. Both actors have repeatedly said that they were "retired" from voicing the characters. Hamill has said that while he enjoyed every minute of being the Joker, the years of voice work had put a huge strain on his voice and that someone else should have the opportunity to "don the psychopathic clown". Both Hamill and Conroy have stated that at their age the repetitive nature of the characters had become tiring. Both did say if there were ever a great story to reprise each character, they'd return. In addition to this series each returned for Batman: Arkham Knight and the animated film, Batman: The Killing Joke. See more »
I used to watch a lot of the superhero animated series in the '90s, but haven't seen any for a while. I'd heard this one was good so I thought I'd take a look, but the first episode lost me immediately.
I don't love the art style, but I could live with it. What I couldn't deal with was the manic pace. The series is pure action with virtually no time spent on story or character. The show starts with a fight, soon there's an explosion, more fighting, a little explanation, some more fighting.
The series from the '90s like Batman the Animated Series and X-Men had characters, stories, a point of view.
This show might be fine if you're a kid - I haven't been a kid since the '70s so I can't speak to that - but this series doesn't not give me much hope for the current state of TV kids cartoons.
