This looks great! I'm sure glad Kevin Conroy returned for his role. Razz

Normally, I'd see the clip and wait 'til AX to see the screening first, but I decided to pre-order the dvd, because I trust them to do a decent job with the final product. [Plus I'm really getting impatient on the Dark Knight theatrical release...The wait might actually contribute to my catching Hellboy 2.]

That was pretty good, I was kinda worried that it wouldn't have the same atmosphere as the original Batman ctoons(the 1993 ones).

Also, Conroy = truly the best and ONLY voice for Batman EVER Surprised .

Region locked AGAIN? What possible benefit could there be from preventing non-US viewing of a trailer?

We shall see when SD Batman comes out. Laughing

Tidbits:

-- (Around the 33rd minute) Andrea couldn't name the art style, but yes, at one point, Batman will be SUPER-DEFORMED! Shocked
And the resulting quandary of her having Kevin Conroy (who's about her age ~50) do the SD Batman voice - if you think Batman singing is OOC...! Laughing

-- Why Kevin Conroy is not the voice of Batman in every incarnation, and why the many incarnations of Batman.

-- Many tidbits about who are in the voice cast, including that Ugly Betty actress.

-- Batman is pretty much the only recurring character in all the shorts, so each short has its own surrounding cast.

-- The unusual challenge of doing post-lay (dubbing after animation) instead of their usual pre-lay (voicing before animation).

Quoted for absolute truth! Wink

I'm really looking forward to this DVD. Batman + anime = pure win.

Ugh, this was pretty dreadful. Probably the stupidest shoot-out scene I've watched in a long time. The acting was horrible as well (except for Conroy of course). And of course the horribly generic animation... but I heard this is Bee Train's segment and no one expects much of Bee Train.

Just got this in at work, it goes out for rent I think the 8th. I'm definitely watching tomorrow. I've been excited to see this ever since I heard it first announced.
