Batman: The Brave and the Bold Blu-Ray Premiere Red Carpet Interviews


Red Carpet Interviews with Diedrich Bader, Andrea Romano, John DiMaggio, and James Tucker

The Paley Center for Media in New York City was the place to be on October 11th for a special Blu-Ray Premiere Event for Batman: The Brave and the Bold, which will be available on Blu-Ray for the first time on November 5, 2013. Prior to the Episode Screening and Special Guest Panel and Q & A, ToonBarn was on hand for the Red Carpet Interviews with some of the panelists.

Ladies first, we always say. Our first interview is with Andrea Romano, who is the most hard-working and most beloved casting and voice director in the animation business, period. Everyone wants to work with Andrea because she is simply the best (cue Tina Turner). In this interview, Andrea tells us how she chose Diedrich Bader to be Batman. And we get to find out how Andrea developed into the most gifted voice director we have ever seen.

ToonBarn’s Marc Morrell also talked to Diedrich Bader, who played Batman, about who he liked to team-up with on the cast. Diedrich also tells us why he loves doing as many animated roles as he can.

Next on the Red Carpet was John DiMaggio, who played Aquaman on Batman: The Brave and the Bold. John told us that both he and Diedrich Bader were up for the role of Batman, and what his reaction was when he learned he was going to be Aquaman. John talks about his early memories of Aquaman, and what the character means to him now. Finally, we had to talk to John about I Know That Voice, a documentary that John helped create which shows the world just who the people are behind those animated characters we love. I Know That Voice will be available On Demand on December 1. Check your local cable providers.

Our last interview on the Red Carpet, but certainly not the least, was Executive Producer James Tucker. James talked to us about the reference they used to determine the lesser-known heroes that would team-up with Batman in every episode of Batman: The Brave and the Bold. We also talked about the Scooby-Doo Gang team-up and whether it was Batman: The Dark Knight Returns or Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox that contained the first episodes of Batman: The Brave and the Bold on Blu-Ray.

Extremely popular on Cartoon Network, Batman: The Brave And The Bold teams the Dark Knight with some of DC Comics’ favorite and more eclectic heroes, including the Blue Beetle, Plastic Man, Green Lantern, Kamandi, Doctor Fate, Jonah Hex, Black Canary, Green Arrow, Mister Miracle and The Atom. The combinations create a perfect mesh of fast-paced action and humor for the first season, which spans 26 episodes.

Batman: The Brave And The Bold is Warner Archive Collection’s first-ever animated release on Blu-ray™ disc. Make sure you pick this up on November 5.

Marc Morrell

I am a Big Fan of all types of animation. Like a lot of things, the cream always rises to the top. My favorites have included Star Wars: The Clone Wars and Rebels, anything Pixar, Phineas and Ferb, Voltron Legendary Defender, and the DC/WB Animated Films. I have a lot of Old School favorites as well, such as Star Blazers, Voltron, Looney Toons, Tom & Jerry, and Scooby Doo.
