For Cast & Crew of DC Animated, Superman/Batman Is Home

Flight, x-ray vision, super intelligence; who wouldn’t want to be a superhero? We grow up emulating our favorites but what is it like when you already are one?

“I try really hard to be a good person,” said voice actor Kevin Conroy at New York City’s Paley Center last week. The statement came in response to a young boy who wanted to know how Conroy is most like Batman, his most famous role, in real life.

The question, as well as several others, followed a preview screening of the latest DC Animated Universe PG-13 film, Superman/Batman: Apocalypse. The feature plus a Green Arrow short, in stores this week, stars Conroy, Tim Daly, Summer Glau, Andre Braugher and Ed Asner. It also marks almost twenty years of Conroy in the shoes of the World’s Greatest Detective. Casting/dialogue director Andrea Romano, who joined Conroy at the screening, has been there with him from the start – the casting call for Batman: The Animated Series.

Head over to Newsarama to read the rest of my coverage of the Paley event with Conroy and Romano.

It was a solid flick. Saw it last night and I recommend it to fans. And who doesn't love Conroy? He's a legend now. Like your blog.

The Green Arrow Short was awesome. It really made me want a Green Arrow Animated Series. Another great animated movie from DC as well. Wonder Woman and Barda come off very well.
