During his time starring in Batman: The Animated Series, and in the countless video games, direct-to-video movies and other spin-offs since then, Kevin Conroy has defined Batman's voice for an entire generation. Which is why it's such a delight to hear him become Christopher Nolan's own Dark Knight.

Second only to Toy Fair back in February, this past weekend's San Diego Comic-Con brought us more toy news than our wallets can reasonably take. Many of the reveals were only available on the convention floor, but there will still plenty of announcements you can look forward to as we creep closer to the holidays. That's right, July isn't even over but it's already time to start assembling those Christmas lists.
Now that Wonder Woman has put DC back in the good graces of fans and critics alike, we can turn our attention to the rest of the DC movie universe while we await Justice League. (Please be good. Please be good.) This list contains the 28 DC Animated Original movies released so far, ranked from worst to best on the quality of their story, characters, and adaptation of the source material.
The comic book industry is in the throes of an existential crisis of its own making. With sales down across the board for basically all of the major publishers, shops like Marvel and DC have been scrambling to figure out how to bring old readers back into the folks while also appealing to new audiences — and DC says it's just figured it out.
One of the biggest knocks against the DC Extended Universe has been its general lack of vibrant colour compared to the comic books. In exchange for gritty realism, the DCEU — especially its costumes — come across as unsaturated and dour. That's a shame because, up close, the League's costumes look great.
When Ben Affleck stepped back from directing The Batman, we knew changes were coming. Turns out those changes are total. In a new interview, director Matt Reeves confirmed what many had long suspected. He won't be using the original script Affleck was working on with DC's Geoff Johns.
There's just one week left till San Diego Comic-Con returns to blast us in the face with awesome pop culture spectacle, cosplay, and fantastic, expensive goodies. Here's the very best toys and collectibles at this year's show that we can't wait to line up forever for (or, more likely, pay even more for on eBay afterwards).
Video: As long time frenemies, Batman and Superman are no strangers to fighting each another. We all know that Bruce and Clark are both perfectly capable of beating the crap out of each other with their fists, have you ever considered which of them would win... if they were Pokemon trainers? Of course you have.
Each of DC and Warner Bros.' Justice League/Looney Tunes crossovers have struck a delicate balance between slapstick comedy and classic superhero action that ends up making all of the characters involved more interesting. In the upcoming Batman/Elmer Fudd special, though, things get vewy, vewy dark.
After playing Batman on television, Adam West became more than just a mere actor. He was the definitive version of the character for almost half a century, and that made him truly larger than life. In honour of that talent and impact, the city of Los Angeles held a beautiful and fitting tribute on Thursday night.
Nicholson. Ledger. Leto. Everyone who has played Joker in the modern era has been an Oscar-winning actor. It's an iconic role, but in the late 1980s, John Lithgow didn't know that. He auditioned to play the role in Tim Burton's 1989 Batman and actively tried not to be cast. It's a decision he regrets to this day.
