I'm back from Comic-Con... and OH, how amazing it was!
Firstly, I'd like to report some amazing surprises involving voice-casting.
The Everywhere Man will be voiced by none other than Superman himself, Brandon Routh!!!! Not only that, but Dick Grayson's father will be voiced by, for most people the definitive Batman (brace yourselves) ... KEVIN CONROY!!
I have video footage of the upcoming season that I will provide a link to later, but the quality is quite bad (though most of it should be fairly easy to make out).
Amoung appearances, in video form, we have; Harley Quinn (who looks amazing), Killer Moth, Black Mask, The Everywhere Man, and Clayface II (Matt Hagen). We're also treated to futuristic (the year 2027 to be exact) looks at Batman (think huge, like in Dark Knight Returns), Barbara (or should i say Oracle? That's right! She's in a wheel-chair), Dick Grayson (Nightwing, anyone?), Mr. Freeze, and the new, tank-like Batmobile (once again, think DKR).
After this, we are shown footage of the actual show, which starts off with Dick spending some time with his parents and then goes into a funeral scene where Bruce explains that he is going to take Dick in as a foster son. Some training scenes follow (Bane, Killer Croc, Firefly, and a giant robot are among the fights that Robin is shown taking part in), along with a scene that has Robin capturing who is, I assume, his parents' killer (his actual name is not mentioned). A final dramatic scene of Batman standing with both Robin and Batgirl on a rooftop is topped off with the revealing of this JLA member we've all been wondering about.
Are you ready?
...are you sure? Brace yourself.
the JLA member that appears in season four of The Batman is...
MARTIAN MANHUNTER! It will apparently happen in the season finale two-parter.
So anyway, that is all for now. I'll have the video footage and some pics of new toys online later tonight.
Hooray for Comic Con. hope you all are happy about the news! I know i was!!!!!
