Toonbarn Character of the Week: Aquaman

For this week’s Toonbarn character feature, we’re going with King Arthur himself, the ruler of the seas and one of the founding members of the Justice League: Aquaman. Technically, we were going to feature Batman but there’s really nothing more to say about Batman (other than the fact that Beware the Batman completely exceeded everybody’s expectations, turning out to be much, much better ...

Flashpoint Paradox Week: Jay Oliva Interview

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 ...

Flashpoint Paradox Week: Sam Daly Interview

Getting to play the part of Superman is a very prestigious position to be in for anyone involved with acting or voice acting. There are so few people who have had the chance to be Superman, in all of his 75 years as a DC Character. You’re all probably thinking of those actors now, as we speak.

San Diego Comic-Con 2013: Warner Bros. Confirms Superman/Batman Film

One of the big Comic-Con reveals on the DC side of the pond concerns the sequel for Man of Steel, not because nobody expected Zack Snyder’s film to have a sequel – the healthy box office take already makes that inevitable – but because the film is going to be a Batman and Superman movie. One of the main reasons why nobody expected a World’s Finest movie is because they have no one to ...
