    I think WB animation have been pretty darn varied and experimental over the past few years. Certainly they are using popular characters as springboards, but that's just being a smart business. If they weren't operating a smart business, we likely wouldn't be getting these DTV's at all.

    If I was running WB, I don't think I'd be too enthusiastic about sinking money into a solo Hawkman DTV.

    I'm now 90% certain Bruce Greenwood is reprising Bruce Wayne/Batman in this. It sounds a lot like him.
    Well, I would, but I'm too much of a fan to care about profits :p.

    If Greenwood is reprising Batman for Young Justice then he might have been readily available for this.

    Cautiously optimistic about this one!

    I agree, but in the back of my brain -- a small part of me was like, "O'Mara?" :p

    I heard a little bit of Ben McKenzie when he said ''Is there a problem officers?''.

    You know, if they were planning on revisiting previous Batman actors for this, does anyone think Anthony Ruivivar could have worked quite well? I think he deserves another stab at the character.

    When: October 6, 4:15 PM - 5:15 PM
    Where: Main Stage 1-D
    Who: Bruce Timm, Jim Krieg, Sam Liu

    Warner Bros. Home Entertainment continues its annual gift to New York Comic Con fans with a “first look” presentation of the next DC Universe Original Movie – Batman: Gotham by Gaslight.

A few premiering animated clips will be shown during the panel, which will include executive producer Bruce Timm (Batman: The Killing Joke), director/producer Sam Liu (Teen Titans: The Judas Contract), screenwriter Jim Krieg (Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox) and some surprise guests. Gotham By Gaslight will be available from Warner Bros. Home Entertainment in Early 2018

    I'm guessing those "surprise guests" include the voice cast we still don't know about (outside Carpenter and guesswork) :p?

    Is this the first time a director has done three DTV's in a row?

    Ethan Spaulding with Son of Batman, Assault on Arkham, and Throne of Atlantis. But technically, Assault is a co-direct.

    I see that IMDb now has Bruce Greenwood listed in the cast for Batman: Gotham by Gaslight for the role of Bruce Wayne/Batman. While this does seem likely to be true, has this actually been confirmed?

    It has not been confirmed yet. I'm sure we'll hear something before NYCC, or perhaps they announce the cast at the panel.

    I mean, I'm 90% sure it's Greenwood from the voice, but without an official announcement it's hard to know for sure :ack:.

    It's possible that Greenwood or someone else connected to the production submitted that casting through IMDbPro.

    Presumably we'll learn more at the NYCC panel in a few weeks as @Pfeiffer-Pfan postulated, if not, probably the first PR around November like with JLD this year.

    Nice to finally have the voice cast :).

    Let's see if I can connect some names:

    Bruce Greenwood -Bruce/Batman

    Jennifer Carpenter - Selina

    Anthony Head - Gordon

    Yuri Lowenthal - Harvey Dent

    Grey Griffin/Tara Strong - Street Urchins.

    I'm guessing, Lincoln Melcher is one of them to; Dick, Jason, and Tim.
