Re: The Dark Knight Returns animated movies news

This was announced at Bruce Timm's panel at SDCC last year. We did have a thread about it but it kind of died due to lack of news. I wonder who will voice Clark and Ollie. Not sure how I feel about Weller either, but I'm sure he'll do a good job as an older Bruce/Batman.

I wonder if Curry is at all pissed that Timm canned him from TAS. It would be nice if he played Mr. J in DKR though.

He was canned. Apparently he was too frightening.

Yeah, so he would be better suited for this. It would be great for Marketing. I think there would be people curious of him as the Joker, who would not care otherwise.

^ I can well believe it (that he was too frightening).

A look at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tim_curry shows that he has since appeared in Batman The Animated Series and Batman Beyond, so it looks like he doesn't bear a grudge against Dini and co.

Re: The Dark Knight Returns animated movies news

I think changing of voice actors happens often before release. Its not like he was replaced after it aired and he was already accepted in the role. Its hard to know a performance will suit the intention until the animation is done.

Which did happen to Clive Revill, who played Alfred in four early episodes before being replaced with Efrem Zimbalist, Jr.

LOL! I can't imagine RotJ or the Prequels without Ian McDiarmid.

I don't remember why he was replaced as Alfred. Was it a scheduling conflict?

Re: The Dark Knight Returns animated movies news

I think I read/heard once that they wanted a warmer, more paternal Alfred than Revill provided. Not sure, though.

(I think one of the record-holders for getting replaced as an animation voice is James Avery. He was the original voice of Shredder on Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, James Rhodes in the '90s Iron Man, and Sir Bryant in The Legend of Prince Valiant, and in all three cases he was later replaced by Dorian Harewood. I've always wondered why that was, since the two don't even sound that similar. And the three substitutions happened years apart, so it's not like he had to be replaced in all three roles at once.)

Re: The Dark Knight Returns animated movies news

I haven't read the comics yet, but I've at least like all of DC's recent animated movies and this is a great cast so I'm really looking forward to this. I did see Batman: Year One after I read the comic, and I thought they did a great job with that adaptation, so I don't doubt they'll do a good job with this one.
