Batman: The Killing Joke SDCC Panel & Interviews

Considering we have read the graphic novel many times prior to the film coming out, we were pleased with the movie, and with the producers’ and writer’s adaptation of the graphic novel and the additional prologue for Batgirl. We didn’t quite understand which scenes made it Rated R, per se, as it really could have been PG-13, by today’s standards.

    SDCC 2013: ToonBarn interviews Tara Strong from Teen Titans Go!

    Tara Strong, who plays Raven on Teen Titans Go!, is being interviewed by ToonBarn's Marc Morrell at SDCC 2013

    She plays Raven on the wildly popular Cartoon Network show, Teen Titans Go! Of course, you also know her as Bubbles on The Powerpuff Girls, Barbara Gordon (Batgirl) on Beware the Batman, Timmy Turner on The Fairly Oddparents, Mary Jane on Ultimate Spider-Man, Twilight Sparkle on all the different My Little Pony series’, (sorry, had to pause to breathe) Harley Quinn on Robot Chicken DC Comics Special and in video games, Young Ben Tennyson on Ben 10, Terrence on Foster’s Home for Imaginary Friends, and a million other roles in video games, cartoons, and animated features. OK, maybe not a million, but IMDB lists her involvement in 358 different titles, with more than a thousand different characters from doing multiple roles in each title.

    Robot Chicken DC Comics Special DVD Preview

    Robot Chicken DC Comics Special Blu-Ray/DVD Releases on Tuesday, July 9, 2013

    The first thing you notice when you watch the Robot Chicken DC Comics Special DVD is the menu has the original theme from CHALLENGE OF THE SUPERFRIENDS (debut: Sept. 9, 1978) playing in a loop, which was the first time the Legion of Doom was introduced in the Saturday Morning Cartoons we all loved as kids. If you didn’t have the chance to see the RCDC Special when it debuted on Adult Swim last September, the menu immediately identifies which version of the JLA/Superfriends they are lampooning on the DVD. Thank GOD! Thankfully, we weren’t put through the ringer with Marvin, Wendy, Wonderdog, the Wonder Twins or Gleek. In “Challenge of the Superfriends”, we weren’t distracted by lame characters thrown in for comic relief, and we were able to focus on the fact that Robin and Aquaman really don’t contribute a whole lot to the Justice League’s successes.

Animation, adds to its existing repertoire of themed specials, like the previously released Robot Chicken Star Wars Trilogy. This particular special, which boasts an all-star cast as well as some of the classic characters Robot Chicken fans have grown to love, provides a hilarious take on some of the most iconic superheroes from the DC Comics universe.

    The special’s all-star cast includes series co-creator and executive producer Seth Green as Batman, Robin and the put-upon Aquaman; Neil Patrick Harris as Two-Face; Alfred Molina as Lex Luthor; Nathan Fillion as the Green Lantern; Megan Fox as Lois Lane; series and special writer/voice talent Breckin Meyer as Superman, plus Abe Benrubi, Alex Borstein, Clare Grant, Tara Strong, series co-creator and executive producer Matthew Senreich, series co-head writer/co-executive producer Tom Root, series director Zeb Wells and Kevin Shinick as co-producer, writer and narrator.

    Ben 10: Destroy All Aliens brings CG Ben 10 to Cartoon Network

    Ben 10: Destroy All Aliens brings CG Ben 10 to Cartoon Network

    During the heydays of this year’s Comic-Con 2011, we scoured a lot of great info about the upcoming world of animation. Amongst the biggest revelations was Cartoon Network’s latest Ben 10 adventure; Ben 10: Destroy All Aliens, an entirely CG rendered made for TV movie. Still somewhat early in development, the CN promises this computer animated cartoon will be ready for our TV-watching enjoyment next year. Perhaps most surprising, and maybe even a little exciting, is the decision to go before Ben 10: Ultimate Alien and Ben 10: Alien Force, and create a “prequel” of sorts during the original Ben 10 era; Ben, Gwen, and Grandpa Max solving cases with the original Omnitrix, just like the old days — and complete with all the original voice cast! Check out these teaser screen shots of the project in motion.
