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 »
There are a lot of really good things about this show, but the one aspect that stands out most to me is just how good the Action actually is! It seems like every episode has a chase or fight that constantly leave me saying "Oh man, that was so cool!". Seriously, the fight choreography is wonderful, especially for the super-powered hand-to-hand, which WB Animation has proved time and time again that they've really got down pat.
The only thing that keeps the show from being perfect is the writing. The writing bad by any means, though. In fact, most of the episodes have very interesting plot lines, but I feel that the show often lacks the time to focus on characters, and Episodes that do focus on the character interactions will be hit-and-miss depending on your tastes in dialogue. Understandable though, given the 11 minute run period. But the potential is there for two- part finales, like seen with Batman: Brave And The Bold!
All in all, incredibly pleased with the series. If you follow DC's wonderful history in animation, this show is the next big step in the staircase.
