INTERVIEW: Creators & Cast of ‘Batman: Assault on Arkham’

batman aoa interview

Earlier this week the latest DC Universe animated feature – Batman: Assault on Arkham – released digitally and on DVD/Blu-ray. This one, however, isn’t tied to The New 52 continuity DC Entertainment and Warner Bros.’ Animation are building with films like Justice League: War and the upcoming Throne of Atlantis, but is instead linked with the Batman: Arkham video game universe. While at San Diego Comic-Con I participated in roundtable interviews with many of Assault on Arkham‘s creators and cast: director Jay Oliva, producer James Tucker, writer Heath Corson, voice director Andrea Romano, and voice talent Kevin Conroy, Matthew Gray Gubler, and John DiMaggio. Hit the jump for their input on making Batman: Assault on Arkham! (more…)

In addition to interviewing the creators and a couple cast members from Rick and Morty while at San Deigo Comic-Con, I also had the opportunity to sit down with Jackson Publick and Doc Hammer of The Venture Bros. The always dapper pair were there promoting the upcoming season of their Adult Swim show, which can be succinctly described as Johnny Quest all grown up, but in reality is so, so much more. (more…)

During his forced vacation from Community (a.k.a. the second time NBC fired him), Harmon teamed with fellow Channel 101 alum, Justin Roiland and began developing an animated program based off of Roiland’s shorts, The Real Animated Adventures of Doc and Mharti.
