'The Batman' season 4 news
So, is the WB’s lackluster ‘The Batman’ animated series finally something worth watching? Well, maybe. They took a step in the right direction with ‘The Batman vs. Dracula’, but overall the show has been pretty disappointing. “The Bat-Embargo” it caused for the superior series, JLU, has also left a pretty nasty taste in the mouths of older Batman fans.
Season 4 might be the turning-point, though. If you head down to the Legions of Gotham messageboard you can get a look at some images for a few of the new characters that were revealed at the San Diego Comic Con. Some look promising, some look confusing and some look just plain…bizarre.
Featured among the images is a picture of Harley Quinn (her premier episode will be written by her creator, Paul Dini, by the way), Killer Moth (voiced by the ever-talented Jeff Bennet), Oracle (getting rid of Batgirl so soon?), Robin, Nightwing (wha?), Black Mask (voiced by James Remar), Clayface (the Matt Hagen version), Everywhere Man (voiced by Brandon Routh!) and a rough sketch of Martian Manhunter. News also comes that Kevin Conroy (Batman from the original Animated Series) will be voicing Dick Grayson’s father.
I guess we’ll have to wait and see if this is good news or not, but it sure has got me curious.
