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.

Flashpoint Paradox Week: DVD/Blu-Ray Review

Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox

Flashpoint Paradox Week on ToonBarn has been a blast! We hope you liked the interviews and articles we posted celebrating last Tuesday’s DVD/Blu-Ray release of Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox from Warner Bros Home Entertainment. ToonBarn wants to thank everyone at Warner Bros Home Entertainment, especially Gary Miereanu (@SuperPRGuy), for inviting us to join them for the interview session, the panel, and the screening for Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox.

We also want to thank all the talented people we interviewed, including Jay Oliva (Director), Jim Krieg (Writer), Andrea Romano (Casting/Voice Director), Cary Elwes (Aquaman), C. Thomas Howell (Professor Zoom), and Sam Daly (Superman). You are all top class professionals and you’ve provided the fans with an awesomely entertaining movie. Thank you so much!

Flashpoint Paradox Week: Jay Oliva Interview

Jay Oliva, Director of Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox, talks to ToonBarn at SDCC 2013

After talking to Jay Oliva (Director of Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox) for a little while, you get the sense that behind the filmmaker face he shows most of the time, there is a raging DC Fanboy underneath. As we saw in the interviews with Nathan Fillion in our first story for Flashpoint Paradox Week on ToonBarn, he was a fan BEFORE he became a participant. The same is true with Jay Oliva. They had all been introduced to this DC Universe when they were kids, reading comics, watching cartoons, having imaginary battles between heroes and villains, and have now matured into adults that can create new stories for these amazing characters.

Flashpoint Paradox Week: Andrea Romano Interview

ToonBarn's Marc Morrell interviews Casting and Voice Director, Andrea Romano, at SDCC 2013, for Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox

From all the people we have spoken to at San Diego Comic-Con, particularly those involved in the animation industry, the most popular name on everyone’s lips is Andrea Romano. When a voice actor has someone to thank, it’s the “brilliant” Casting and Voice Director, Andrea Romano. When it comes to the amount of praise that is bestowed upon any one person, Andrea Romano receives the most. She didn’t pay these people to say these things, and she doesn’t ever ask for praise. She is simply the most genuine, most respected, most gifted Voice Director that the industry has ever seen. I want to work for her, simply to watch her work her magic, and I am far from being a voice actor. Yes, my friends, she is THAT good.

New Images for the Dark Knight Returns, Part 2

Two new images from Warner Brothers’ The Dark Knight Returns Part 2 have been released online, coinciding with the announcement that the animated movie will have screenings in two different high profile locations.

The first image is a close up of the Bat’s mug, there’s nothing really noteworthy about it except that it seems to show hints of the Batman’s age, what with the mask not being able to hide his gaunt appearance. The second image is of the Joker, holding a clown mask. Joker, for his part, also looks a little bit aged. Note that The Dark Knight Returns is set in a future in which an old, retired Bruce Wayne is forced into donning the cape and cowl again after the return of the Joker.
