"Batman" Crossovers (S/O)

… That only five actors have appeared in both Batman: The Animated Series and a live-action Batman film (Rene Auberjonois, Ed Begley, Jr., John Glover, Patrick Leahy and Vincent Schiavelli)?

  1. --Crouchbk 01:26, January 8, 2010 (UTC)
  2. Also a way to highlight the live action crossovers list. -- Tupka217 21:58, June 17, 2010 (UTC)

  1. not correct. Adam West appeared as as aging actor who had played the Grey Ghost in the animated series and played Batman in the 1966 movie.
  1. Nope. This is about the Burton/Schumacher Batman movies, not the 1966 one. -- Tupka217 06:50, September 16, 2010 (UTC)
  2. This is a slippery slope, so it's all about the phrasing. Adam West should definitely count. For that matter, let's expand it to include JL/JLU. Just off the top of my head, Nestor Carbonell played El Diablo in "The Once And Future Thing Part One: Weird Western Tales" and he played the mayor of Gotham in "The Dark Knight." --Harryllax 10:32, January 11, 2012 (UTC)
I think it can do with a rephrase to make it clear it's about the 1989-1997 movies by Burton/Schumacher films. And as for JL/JLU, the Dark Knight also had Eric Roberts and Michael Jai White. But that's what the List of live-action crossovers is for. --Tupka217 10:50, January 11, 2012 (UTC)

Rogues in Metropolis (S/O)

... that eight villains from Batman's rogues gallery featured in Superman: The Animated Series (Joker, Ra's Al Ghul, Roxy Rocket, Harley Quinn, Riddler, Bane, Mad Hatter and Penguin)?

  1. Just a little fun fact to add. CharmJustice 12:48, December 26, 2010 (UTC)CharmJustice

  1. Technically untrue. Poison Ivy appeared in an episode of "Static Shock" ("Hard As Nails"), but she never appeared on Superman: The Animated Series. If you're thinking of "Girl's Night Out," that was technically an episode of The New Batman Adventures. Remove Ivy from the equation and Superman: The Animated Series still had seven Bat-villains, which is still a pretty fun fact. --Harryllax 10:24, January 11, 2012 (UTC)
See below. Ivy replaced with Roxy. --Tupka217 10:50, January 11, 2012 (UTC)

Eight villains from Batman's rogues gallery were featured in Superman: The Animated Series (Joker, Harley Quinn, Roxy Rocket, Penguin, Riddler, Bane, Mad Hatter, and Ra's Al Ghul)? --DCAUBatman 00:53, October 2, 2011 (UTC)

Corey Burton (S/O)

...that Corey Burton voiced more villians for Justice League/Justice League Unlimited than any other voice actor? Burton voiced eight different villains: Brainiac, Dr. Blizzard, The Key, Sonar, Kanto, Weather Wizard, Toyman, and Metallo (the latter two in "Hereafter", wherein Burton subbed for their usual voice actors).

  1. What's so special about eight? --Tupka217 15:22, January 9, 2012 (UTC)
It's more than anyone else in JL/JLU history by far. Rephrased to emphasize that fact. --Harryllax 10:14, January 11, 2012 (UTC)
Michael Rosenbaum and Maria Canals also did a lot. You'd have to count roles for all (well, not all, but several) actors to be certain, and then there's the matter of uncredited roles we're not sure about. --Tupka217 10:21, January 11, 2012 (UTC)
True, the uncredited roles would be a pain, but I think I'm on to something here and I think Burton has the villian record. Let me do some research and revisit this one, k? --Harryllax 10:56, January 11, 2012 (UTC)
A lot of his villains are uncredited. Of the 8 you list, 3 are uncredited. --Tupka217 10:59, January 11, 2012 (UTC)
Then that will be mentioned in the final product. Basically, the question I'm trying to anwer is "Who voiced the most villains in in the DCAU?" So far, it looks like Corey is the answer. I think fans would find it interesting. --Harryllax 11:17, January 11, 2012 (UTC)
Okay, I spent a couple nights researching this and I'll re-submit below. Feel free to delete this one altogether. --Harryllax 12:41, January 12, 2012 (UTC)

Corey Burton (S/O)

...that Corey Burton holds the record for voicing the most villians in the DCAU? Burton was responisbile for bringing 12 different villains to life. Burton voiced Brainiac, Dr. Blizzard, Binko, Vilmos Egans, General Norman, Istivan Hegedesh, The Key (uncredited), Sonar (uncredited), Kanto (uncredited in "Alive!"), Weather Wizard, Toyman, and Metallo (the latter two in "Hereafter", wherein Burton subbed for their usual voice actors).

A close second is Michael Rosenbaum, at 11. Rosenbaum voiced Deadshot, Ghoul, Terminal, Ollie, Carl (henchman), Trapper, Dr. Polaris (uncredited), Smirk (uncredited), Colonel Josef (uncredited), Flash's body possessed by Lex Luthor's brain (in "The Great Brain Robbery"), and Flash (Brainiac construct) (in "Divided We Fall.")

Other notable DCAU multiple-villain-voicers include Mark Hamill (8), Kevin Michael Richardson (6), Jennifer Hale (5), Richard Moll (5), Lex Lang (4), and Ron Perlman (4).

  1. I think these are impressive accomplishments for the performers, showing just how talented and versatile they are. Plus, it's a fun fact for DCAU die-hards. I was pretty thorough researching every multi-role DCAU voice actor I could think of. If I got something wrong or missed someone feel free to let me know and, let's discuss to come up with something even better, k? --Harryllax 12:52, January 12, 2012 (UTC)

  • I wouldn't call Agent West a villain, and I don't think we can count the Brain Robbery one as one. So Corey takes the cake. --Tupka217 14:37, January 12, 2012 (UTC)
  • You're probably right about Agent West. I would defend Luthor-controlled-Flash, though. The character WAS Luthor (albeit briefly), just with Flash's body and voice. Rosenbaum wasn't voicing Wally during those scenes, he was voicing Lex. Let me take another crack at this one tomorrow night, or feel free to re-work it yourself. --Harryllax 14:50, January 12, 2012 (UTC)
  • Okay, re-edited. Thoughts? --Harryllax 11:47, January 13, 2012 (UTC)
