NYCC 2015: Phil LaMarr Channels Brainiac, Brainiac, and also Brainiac in “Justice League: Cosmic Clash”

We do love our voice actors here at OTF, so when we had the opportunity to chat with the talented Phil Lamarr again at NYCC – we jumped on it! Lamarr, known for his work on Static Shock, Futurama, and of course Justice League, tapped into his inner nerd to find the voice for all of the Brainiacs in Lego DC Comics Super Heroes: Justice League – Cosmic Clash. LEGO DC Comics Super Heroes – Justice League: Cosmic Clash is currently slated for release in early 2016.

“Justice League Unlimited: The Complete Series” Out Today from the Warner Archive!

“Justice League Unlimited: The Complete Series” Out Today from the Warner Archive!

The final piece of that classic Bruce Timm puzzle is complete: Justice League Unlimited: The Complete Series is out TODAY on Blu-Ray from the Warner Archive Collection! After its 39-episode run ended in 2006, Justice League Unlimited closes out what I refer to as the Golden Age of superhero animation. Starting with the much beloved Batman: The Animated Series, the Timm-produced DC Animated TV shows have since become the basis for which we judge animated superhero shows. The quality writing, the engaging stories, and the iconic design all melded to create series that were enjoyable by both children and adults (and children who have since become adults.) That isn’t to say that there haven’t been great shows since then, but JLU was the final entry of the 2-D cartoon in that style — you know the one, that now-classic angular style that is so identifiable with these shows. Like its predecessor ...

NYCC 2015: Troy Baker Returns as LEGO Batman in “Justice League: Cosmic Clash”

Hey, remember us? We (and Pepperidge Farm) remember you, and we missed you! If you know us, we certainly enjoy our LEGO video games and movies. There’s a campiness that just makes you smile, no matter how jaded you are. LEGO DC Comics Super Heroes – Justice League: Cosmic Clash continues that trend, while simultaneously being the second longest title is show business. (The previous LEGO movie, LEGO DC Comics Super Heroes: Justice League – Attack of the Legion of Doom! currently holds the title for longest title.) Following up his roles in the LEGO Batman video games and Attack of the Legion of Doom, Sam Elliott Troy Baker returns as Batman, complete with the deadpan tone and classic growl that typifies the LEGO caped crusader. At NYCC, we had the chance to talk with the now-prolific voice actor about the recording process and his roles across the justice spectrum.  Watch ...

E3 2015: Top Moments of the Microsoft’s Press Conference

E3 2015: Top Moments of the Microsoft’s Press Conference

In recent years, Microsoft has had less-than-stellar performances at E3. In 2013, Microsoft announced the jaw dropping price for the then-upcoming Xbox One with an unnaturally strange focus on TV. In 2014, Microsoft shifted their attention to games on Xbox – this was better, of course – but the announced games (save, perhaps, for Sunset Overdrive and a handful of indies that I’m fairly sure still haven’t been released) was more of the same. How did Microsoft fare in 2015? As it turns out, not too bad. Let’s run down the top announcements from the home of Xbox. HALO 5: GUARDIANS Surprising no one, Microsoft launched the whole affair with a new look at Halo 5: Guardians. After a gameplay demo featuring the voice talents of Nathan Fillion and Keith David, they announced the new Warzone multiplayer mode. While the

E3 2015: Day 0 Roundup – Bethesda, Ubisoft, and EA

E3 2015: Day 0 Roundup – Bethesda, Ubisoft, and EA

The hype train has officially left the station. The yearly media circus that is the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) officially launched yesterday, where all the biggest names in video games vie for your attention and your pre-orders. There’s a lot of noise coming from Los Angeles, but here’s a quick list of the biggest and most exciting announcements to drop at E3. Click the links to jump to the publisher: BETHESDA | ELECTRONIC ARTS | UBISOFT BETHESDA On Sunday, Bethesda fired the first shots with their “E3 showcase,” announcing Fallout 4, Dishonored 2, and a new Doom. None of this was terribly surprising, but none of it needed to be — these titles are enough to get people excited. The new Doom – simply titled Doom – promises “badass demos, big effing guns, and moving really, really fast.” The double-barreled super shotgun, the chainsaw, and ...

The Animaniacs Invade Atlantic City

The Animaniacs Invade Atlantic City

A voice actor is always a fun person to interview, especially when they slip into a funny voice or two as they talk. Two voice actors are even better because they can bounce off each other both as colleagues and characters. But when you get four together, all bets are off. Voice actors Rob Paulsen, Jess Harnell, Tress MacNeille, and Maurice LaMarche are some of the most prolific talents in the business, each with hundreds of credits to their name and a handful of Emmy’s between them. At the inaugural Atlantic City Boardwalk Con, this legendary quartet, better known to many as Yakko, Wakko, Dot, and The Brain of Animaniacs, gathered together for a rare group appearance, and I had the unbelievable honor of getting them on the mic to talk about cartoons, characters, and everything in between.

Game of Thrones: Unbowed, Unbent, Unbroken

Game of Thrones: Unbowed, Unbent, Unbroken

Reaction to “Unbowed, Unbent, Unbroken” (Game of Thrones: Season Five, Episode Six) by Corwyn Johnson Spoilers Ahead I debated writing this reactionary article as a letter directly to David Benioff, D.B. Weiss, Bryan Cogman (who wrote the episode), and Jeremy Podeswa (who directed the episode). Because I don’t get it. This episode was absolutely atrocious, with an appalling ending scene that is nowhere to be found in the books. Partially, I feel that Game of Thrones suffers from what I like to call The Walking Dead syndrome. Exciting beginnings to seasons that lead into relatively boring middles and rely on shock value and over-the-top finales to draw you back in. I had hope that Season 5 would prove wildly different from the previous season, and the first four episodes certainly had me maintaining that. Instead, the past two episodes have dashed those hopes entirely, and really have me questioning just what the ...

Welcome to Belle Reve: The “Suicide Squad” Revealed!

Avengers: Age of Ultron may have taken most headlines this weekend, but David Ayer wasn’t going to let Marvel hog all the glory. Last night, the writer/director shared the first cast photo of 2016’s Suicide Squad – and it looks pretty damn fantastic. Task Force X assembled and ready. #SuicideSquad pic.twitter.com/fEV7E1aPsm — David Ayer (@DavidAyerMovies) May 3, 2015 While Jared Leto’s Joker is conspicuously absent, the rest of Task Force X is ready for duty: Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn, Will Smith as Deadshot, Jai Courtney as Captain Boomerang, Cara Delevingne as Enchantress, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje as Killer Croc, Karen Fukuhara as Katana, and Joel Kinnaman as Rick Flagg. Adam Beach (far left) and Jay Hernandez (far right) were previously unannounced, but it appears they’re portraying Slipknot and El Diablo, respectively. Suicide Squad is scheduled for major release on August 5, 2016.
