On this edition of the Word Balloon podcast, host John Siuntres chats with Andrea Romano, the casting and voice director for Warner Animation, who’s been directing the dialog sessions for TV shows like The Boondocks, Sponge Bob, and all of the DC superhero projects, including the Batman, Superman and Justice League films and TV series.

You’ll get behind the scenes details about the upcoming Batman Gotham Knight DVD, the highly successful Justice League The New Frontier, and next Fall’s new series Batman The Brave And Bold.

Andrea also talks about casting Kevin Conroy for the original Batman animated series, and answers the perennial fan question “Why doesn’t Conroy play Batman in every Warner Bros lamination project?”

Plus fascinating voice over stories about Brooke Shields (New Frontier’s Carol Ferris) David Boreanaz (Hal Jordan) Phil Morris (John Stewart) and many other stars .

  1. SHe is usually pretty good, but the New Frontier Batman was very disappointing.

    We really did not care for New Frontier. Although it was stylish and well animated, but the graphic novel based storyline did not make for a solid feature plot.

    Here is our take on it with lots of pics and a few bits if wit if you are interested:

    • i read your review, and while i found your arguments interesting, i also disagreed with most of them.

      new frontier is one of the best direct to dvd adaptations dc has put out to date. the casting was wonderful, and the story captures the paranoia and fear of the cold war era.

  2. Thanks for checking it out. We think it debatable how well Cooke’s graphic novel was adapted.

    Generally, it seems what you liked about the feature were some of the elements we thought made it less enjoyable.

    Maybe we think using the superheroes in this fashion went a little against their grain, like Watchmen. Different strokes as they say.
