Its a shame that Brubaker won't continue as part of Season Two; his work as a crime writer in comics (both as work-for-hire and his own stuff) is amazing and ranks up there with Greg Rucka's prose.
It probably won't work out that way but it would be kind of interesting if it works out that the second season transitions starts to see a transition to more of the Robin/Supervillains/Superhero stuff compared to season 1 dealing with more grounded crime drama (I assume going off what we've heard so far).

If this show is supposedly everything Bruce Timm wanted to do... I'd have to look at the old interviews but didn't they want just Batman at first? I think there's a chance this show will be more stand alone (e.g. not use other superheroes) and be just a solitary Batman

Oh, I'm not expecting guest heroes at all, just that it's not unreasonable to expect them to start introducing the sidekicks in season 2 unless they don't fit tonally (but the fact that Barbara is in it tells me we will see Batgirl at some point and hopefully not as a love interest to Batman :p).

True. It will be interesting if the Gordons here have any parallels with the Gordons in Beware The Batman. I could see Barbara conducting her own "investigation" of the Batman myth in her spare time and finally finding/seeing Batman in the city but in the midst of a battle and complications follow.

I was thinking Question would fit in nicely with the detective noir style. Maybe even use Renee Montoya in the role, since she'll apparently be a recurring character here and it would feel less like a guest-star and more like a natural progression or something.

I wonder if this is going to be compared to Beware as much as B:TAS...

Nice to see some sort of official confirmation. It's kind of weird to think that apart from Batman, there are a number of characters Conroy could have voiced. Either way it will also be bittersweet knowing there won't be more, if any after this.

I have no idea if the CRISIS part of IGN’s supposed scoop is true or not, but Kevin Conroy did not record a voice for CAPED CRUSADER. We were hoping to have him do a voice for the new show (and he was eager to do it) but sadly he passed away before we could make it happen.

As I have to do every so often, I will remind you all once again to take all un-sourced ‘news’ items in the sci-fi/comics/entertainment cybersphere with a huge grain of salt. Occasionally these ‘leaks‘ actually turn out to be true, but often as not they’re just cynical clickbait.

Thanks for debunking that part of the report. It was suspicious in hindsight given the timing of the Suicide Squad game stuff.

Aw that's a shame. I remember imdb said Kevin Conroy was voicing Thomas Wayne in the Caped Crusader which sounded believeable since it'd likely only be for a short flashback or something, but I guess not.

Hell the site still has Conroy credited for Caped Crusader:


I guess that needs to be removed.

The rumors of Josh Keaton's cameo on a certain animated series have me intrigued. I'll be amazed if it happened.
How am I supposed to do therapy? How do I avoid turning them into coloring book sessions?
Ugh, I was having such a nice day yesterday, and this morning I have something wrong with my throat.

Good news according to my friend in the Philippines with proof. Sky Cable will continue beyond and Postpone or not proceed to complete the acquisition of SKY CABLE to PLDT. WBD's Channels like Cartoon Network, Cartoonito, HBO, etc. will continue to watch beyond.
Anyone ever come across the movie Nickelodeon and think, "Burt Reynolds made a movie about the children's network?".

Also, don't get me started about the Raul Julia movie Kiss of the Spider Woman not having anything to do with the Marvel Comics character.....
