Interview with Justin Halpern.

Season One

-Bader was also shocked when he had to voice the Batman-Robin arch-nemesis talk that ended with Robin asking about sex.

Season Three
-They haven't started casting or recording new voices for season 3 yet.
-Halpern would like to cast Nathan Fielder, John Wilson, Joe Perra for a trio of villains.
-Mad Hatter appears in one of the episodes.
-They are going to do 'something with the Joker that has never been done in any story' in a stand alone Joker episode like "Batman's Back, Man".
-There will also be a trip into someone's brain in season 3 that will be really special for DC fans.
-Halpern estimates season 3 will stream at the very end of 2021 to beginning of 2022.

I guess even having worked with older or adult DC Animation, there's still only so much you can expect when you get a gig o_O.

Terrible Trio too obvious :rolleyes2:?
-Mad Hatter appears in one of the episodes.
I kind of wonder what the show's take on him would be like :confused:.
They are going to do 'something with the Joker that has never been done in any story' in a stand alone Joker episode like "Batman's Back, Man".
Joker getting his own episode? I'm guessing it'll involve his life with the girlfriend and kids, but I wasn't too crazy about that in season 2 :(.
-There will also be a trip into someone's brain in season 3 that will be really special for DC fans.
I wouldn't think it would be Ivy, we're not getting as much of her backstory this season, but maybe Batman :)?

Good to hear :cool:.

3/12: Ha ha, that would be a good one. Here I was thinking of some C and D-listers like Killer Moth, Calculator, and Zebra Man.

I mean, any DC character really at this point, lol. Or if they're doing the mainstream version Jervis Tetch or the one on Batman '66.

I do admit I want to see Joker as a soccer dad on this show, lmao.

Yeah, I think it's either him or Jim Gordon.

3/22: Schumacker confirmed Clock King will appear in season 3.

So...Silver Age Clock King? DCAU Clock King? Rebirth Clock King :p?
I guess it's either a take o the DCAU Fugate or the 2nd one that 1st apeared in Connor/Palmiotti's run in the HQ comics. There was only the brief cameo when Ivy did her set at the Pit in season 2's "There's No Place to Go But Down". He was wearing the clock style glasses with the hour and minute hands.

Hmm, and further into the tweets, he seems to confirm Golden Glider shows up in the third episode.
I never expected she'd make her first animated appearance in a Harley Quinn cartoon, but now I think all the main Flash Rogues have finally appeared in animation :).

I'm hoping that means a Central City episode, maybe, with Scott Porter's Flash and maybe some of the other Rogues ;).

If the guest-star really is a wrestler it seems like a natural progression from other relatively recent animated movies (i.e. Scooby-Doo, Flintstones or Jetsons) where a bunch of wrestlers showed up. But it's probably too early to start speculating or jumping to conclusions about that. John Cena is such a vague hint. :p

Golden Glider should be fun.

hi, what cartoon is your profile pic from?

I haven't seen an Nostalgia Critic episode in 6 years and i don't plan on coming back.

But good lord this is cringe. It straight up looks like a 2001 Newgrounds cartoon. I'm suprised Foamy the Squirrel didn't pop up
So is there going to be a "Do you remember ___________?" thread for every show that ever existed? Or is it just for shows that came out in the last 30 years?
I wish a happy 49th birthday to Aliki Theofilopoulos Grafft.

I could find some stuff that was relatable from Kansas City.
