Batman: The Animated Series (1992–1995)
Batman: The Animated Series is everything to me. When people go back and cherish and revere that special thing from when they were a child, this is that thing for me. The stories, the look, the animation – this is and was Batman to me and always will be. I’ve been re-watching the whole series again from start to finish, and I couldn’t think of a better way to celebrate the series than to talk about some of the greatest episodes of the greatest half hour show to ever air, in my humble opinion.
Before I get to my list, I want to highlight certain episodes from each season that I particularly enjoy, because this show is just too amazing to boil down to five.

Today marks the 30th Anniversary of Tim Burton’s Batman (or Batman ’89 as it’s known nowadays). It was a movie that changed the landscape of comic book movies, broke the mould that came before it and wrote the blueprint for how to market a summer blockbuster.
To celebrate this occasion, let’s look at some things about the movie you may not have known.
And if you think we’re joking, just look at our face. Do we look like we’re joking?
1. The film was nearly totally different
After the success of Richard Donner’s Superman: The Motion Picture, Warner Bros. started work on script for a Batman movie in 1980.
Tom Mankiewicz (who had an uncredited writing role on Superman: The Motion Picture) wrote a script that was very light in tone
For those keeping score: That now makes three different versions of Superman and two separate Lois Lanes for the five-part event, which kicks off in December. The crossover will pick up the “Smallville” characters some 10 years after the show went off the air.
“Smallville,” which featured a pre-Superman version of Kent growing up in Kansas, aired for 10 seasons from 2001-2011. The first aired on The WB before it merged with Upn to create The CW.

Welling will join Brandon Routh and Tyler Hoechlin as those playing the Man of Steel. Routh played the character in the 2006 film “Superman Returns,
“For eight years, Arrow has stood on the shoulders of Smallville,” said executive producer Marc Guggenheim. “Simply put, there would be no Arrow, and no Arrowverse, without it. So when we first started talking about Crisis on Infinite Earths, our first, second and third priorities were getting Tom to reprise his iconic role as Clark Kent. To say that we’re thrilled would be a Superman-sized understatement.”

Today would have been his 91st birthday though and fans are paying their respects to the DC legend on social media, and here are just a few of the best reactions.

You can argue over which Batman portrayal is better, but you have to agree that no one’s been batter than Adam West.

“Smallville,” which featured a pre-Superman version of Kent growing up in Kansas, aired for 10 seasons from 2001-2011. The first aired on The WB before it merged with Upn to create The CW. Welling’s casting means that the crossover will now feature three different versions of the famous DC Comics character.
“Crisis on Infinite Earths” will also feature Routh as an alternate version of Superman — though not the same one from the 2006 film “Superman Returns” — along with his “Legends of Tomorrow” role as Ray Palmer/The Atom — and Tyler Hoechlin, who has been the “Arrowverse” version of the Man of Steel up until this point.
Additionally, Burt Ward will appear in an
The Crisis On Infinite Earths crossover event will check in with Tom Welling's Clark Kent almost 10 years after the end of Smallville.
The CW superhero verse has always had excellent, meta casting, but they are going to the next level with this year's big crossover event Crisis on Infinite Earths. The network just made the announcement (via TVLine) that Tom Welling, aka Smallville's Superman, will be appearing in the five-part event, which is set to air in December. Welling will reprise his role as Clark Kent, and the crossover will "reveal what happened to Clark Kent almost ten years" after the Smallville finale.
“For eight years, Arrow has stood on the shoulders of Smallville,” Arrow-verse executive producer Marc Guggenheim said in a statement, recognizing just how much the noughts WB show has meant to superhero TV and the Arrow-verse in particular.
On the heels of news that both Tyler Hoechlin and Brandon Routh will be slipping back into their Superman tights for Arrowverse‘s “Crisis on Infinite Earths” crossover, TVLine can confirm that Smallville vet Tom Welling will also reprise his signature Man of Steel role in the five-part event.

Soon afterward, Marvel properties began receiving similar treatment. If any of them were to be named as being most fondly remembered, that’d have to be X-Men: The Animated Series. After all, the character designs mirrored that of the source material’s very accurately, as did its adaptations of key comic book storylines.
With the Disney Plus streaming service set to launch soon enough, speculation regarding X-Men: The Animated Series being included is mounting. According to The DisInsider, residents of The Netherlands have been granted a free trial – and both X-Men and
Hamill commented as so:
“I went to Broadway in search of challenging character roles, only to find one of the most rewarding & enduring of them all in this series. Without #BatmanTheAnimatedSeries, my career would have no punchline.”
The tweet has certainly prompted a strong response, coming at the same time as Batman voice actor Kevin Conroy, who’ll be returning to the character in the Arrowverse
I going to enthusiastically agree with you on that!
In the meantime, we’ll just have to rely on set photos and the like to tide ourselves over. Speaking of which, a Licensing Expo going on in Brazil has gifted us with something new, that being a fresh look at Margot Robbie as the Clown Princess of Crime, and it can be viewed below.
As you can see, the attire worn by Harley is a far cry from any iteration previously known to us, yet I have seen even some diehard fans of the

In Lego DC: Batman – Family Matters, “suspicion is on high after Batman, Batgirl, Robin and other Super Heroes receive mysterious invitations. However, family values must remain strong when Batman and his team encounter the villainous Red Hood, who is obsessed with destroying the Bat-family and all of Gotham City.”
Lego Batman – Family Matters sees Troy Baker (Batman: Arkham Origins), Alyson Stoner (Phineas and Ferb) and Scott Menville (Teen Titans Go!) leading the cast as the voices of Batman, Batgirl and Robin respectively, with Jason Spisak (Young Justice) as Red Hood (and Jason Todd), Steve Blum (Star Wars Rebels) as Scarecrow, Zach Callison (Steven Universe) as Billy Batson, Cam Clarke (Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles
The blood-soaked brawler’s Kombat Pack – a meaty Dlc bundle containing six additional characters – was unveiled in full, finally putting to rest a dizzying number of rumors and leaks attempting to guess who would make the cut. Some such speculation, as it turns out, has been eerily accurate, correctly predicting that both Terminator and Joker are set to debut between now and early next year. Sadly, those hoping that whispers of Evil Dead‘s Ash Williams’ inclusion would prove factual will be left sorely disappointed but hey, there’s always the possibility of a Kombat Pack 2 in the future, right?
We’ll see, but for now, all eyes are on Batman’s nemesis and the Clown Prince of Crime, the Joker. Surprisingly, and unlike its Terminator: Dark Fate-inspired T-800, Joker’s design in MK11 doesn
I think the bigger challenge may come in the form of making the cackling distinct from predecessors, but we really can’t complain if someone gives a valiant effort. I’m immediately reminded of how Heath Ledger (The Dark Knight) and Kevin Michael Richardson (The Batman) had to follow Jack Nicholson (Batman) and Mark Hamill (Batman: The Animated Series) in their respective fields, yet both opened us up to new realms of madness.
Though a wide array of talented actors have stepped up to the plate in the time since,
As you may or may not know, before deciding to go with the garish hotpants and shiny jacket, the film’s version of Harley went though several different iterations, but in the end, they decided against her iconic jester costume, leaving many fans disappointed. But it seems like those waiting to see Robbie don the classic outfit on the big screen will soon get their wish.
