New York Comic Con 2015 hosted a reunion for six of the seven voice actors from the iconic Justice League animated series, plus legendary voice director Andrea Romano. On Friday afternoon on the Empire Stage, moderator Shaun Lynch brought Ms. Romano together with Carl Lumbly (J’onn J’onzz), Phil LaMarr (Green Lantern), Maria Canals-Barrera (Hawkgirl), George Newbern (Superman), Susan Eisenberg (Wonder Woman), and Kevin Conroy (Batman). Unfortunately, Michael Rosenbaum was not able to attend (Ms. Romano thought that it was either his high school reunion or his birthday). Phil LaMarr certainly dressed for the occasion Read More: // here
The Adventure Continues: A Justice League Reunion Event
All due respect to Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, but Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, and Gal Gadot have their work cut out for them if they want to be recognized as the definitive on-screen version of DC’s Justice League. For now, that title goes to the animated League, which aired on Cartoon Network from 2001 to 2006, first as the six-hero Justice League before evolving into the giant-sized Justice League Unlimited. It was the culmination of the DC Animated Universe that began with Batman: The Animated Series and remains one of the best superhero cartoons ever. Now, the League’s core members — Batman (Kevin Conroy), Wonder Woman (Susan Eisenberg), Superman (George Newbern), Green Lantern (Phil LaMarr), Hawkgirl (Maria Canals-Barrera), and Martian Manhunter (Carl Lumbly) — join forces again, alongside the show’s voice director, Andrea Romano. Better still, they’ll be performing a classic script from their Justice League run. Batfleck had better be taking notes. (Oct. 9, 2:00-3:00 p.m., Empire Stage 1-E) Read More: // here
While some of us are still recovering from San Diego Comic-Con, its little brother, New York Comic Con, looms less than two months away. As the October 8th to 11th dates approach, announcements are starting to be made about just what fans are going to get to experience on the show floor and in the panel rooms. Information is still scarce, but in addition to statements about Humberto Ramos from Amazing Spider-Man, and Art Baltazar and Franco from Itty Bitty Hellboy, NYCC wants the world to know that the cast and crew of the Justice League animated series will be reuniting once again at the convention. Including the likes of Kevin Conroy (Batman), Carl Lumbly (Martian Manhunter), Phil Lamaar (Green Lantern), Susan Esienberg (Wonder Woman), Maria Canals-Barrera (Hawkgirl), and George Newbern (Superman), the panel promises to be a collection of familiar voices and talent. While this particular cast is most well associated with the Justice League series that ran from 2001 to 2004 on Cartoon Network, many of them have reprised their roles in subsequent DC animated works, such as Justice League Doom. New York Comic Con will be at Javits Center in New York City, New York October 8th through 11th. Read More: // here

From Broadway to Hollywood, Jonathan White is once again co-producing a night to remember for this year’s gala to support the Golden West Chapter of the ALS Association, with proceeds benefiting the continuing effort to fight against Lou Gehrig’s disease. The Pasadena Playhouse will be full on the evening of April 20th with headliners of Broadway: Ed Asner, Emmy and Golden Globe award winner; Brent Barrett from Chicago, The Musical; and Bruce Vilance of Hairspray. Also on the program is comedian Wendy Liebman who’s been a regular on Letterman and Jimmy Kimmel Live, and had appearances on Comic Relief and Politically Incorrect. Singing, dancing, and trapeze and tightrope walking come in one package called The Flying Morgans, which KPCC calls “a family of vaudeville performers and contortionists living in a small castle in the Hollywood Hills.” For old-time flavor the evening welcomes Academy Award-winning composer—for Disney’s Mary Poppins and The Jungle Book—Richard Sherman. Television is represented by Scandal‘s George Newbern, Parenthood‘s Jason Ritter, In a Heartbeat‘s Reagan Pasternak, Galavant‘s Timothy Omudson, and, for soap opera fans, The Young and the Restless‘ Kate Linder (who’s been on the show since 1973!). The highlight may be Academy Award-winner Renée Zellweger, but for us who are going on ancient, we love seeing the cocked fedora and ageless smile of The Monkees‘ Micky Dolenz (and we’re not apologizing). “One Starry Night” will begin with a reception and silent auction followed by comedy, singing, dancing, flying, and contortions at 8 p.m. Dessert and a meet-and-greet with the cast follows the show at 10:30 p.m.
“One Starry Night”
Monday, April 20th @ 6 p.m.
Pasadena Playhouse, 39 S. El Molino Ave., Pasadena 91101
