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 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.

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.

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, 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.

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.
