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

Thirty years ago, Back to the Future debuted and made Michael J. Fox a major movie star, but an alternate timeline where the film starred an entirely different actor – and the movie would likely not have become an instant classic – nearly existed. Read More: // here

The next panel I moderated was for George Newbern, voice of Superman from Justice League, as well as many other voice and on-screen roles, including Father of the Bride, Friends, and tons more. He’s currently playing a fascinating role as Charlie on Scandal. George was delightfully interesting to listen to given his storied career, which also includes having read over a hundred audio books. It was pretty cool to hear him demonstrating coming up with something like 140 voices for the most recent book series he did. And of course it was awesome to have Superman sitting next to me for a few moments when he did that voice. (George also worked on Switching Channels with Christopher Reeve. How cool is that?)

TV is full of weird tales, but “Granite Flats,” which just launched three full seasons on Netflix last Friday, makes for one of the oddest. And there’s a lot to learn from the family-friendly period drama with a high-caliber cast when it comes to both the state of children’s television and Netflix’s current strategy for bringing in new subscribers.

“Granite Flats” is about to go mainstream. The 1960s Cold War-era drama, which boast name stars including Christopher Lloyd (“Back to the Future”), indie fave Parker Posey (“Waiting for Guffman”) and George Newbern (“Scandal”), moves to Netflix this Friday after spending its first two seasons on BYUtv — the satellite and digitally-distributed network owned by Brigham Young University. “I’m aware of the fact that Chris [Lloyd] could go to a Comic-Con on the weekend playing Doc Brown and make more money than I’m paying him for three weeks of work,” says executive producer Scott Swofford. “He’s not doing it for the money but he really loves the material and the character.” (Netflix also bought the show’s previous two seasons, which will also be available Friday.) Lloyd, who joined the show in Season 2, plays an eccentric junior high school English teacher who instructs the show’s three main characters (his students): kid sleuths uncovering evidence about the strange goings-on in their small town of Granite Flats, Co., after a Soviet spy satellite falls from the sky. But while the series bills itself as family-friendly, the drama in this town is not just for kids. Its chief of police and the FBI are working to find a KGB spy hiding in their midst, and the CIA is running a top-secret program out of the local VA hospital to develop mind control as a weapon against the Soviets. “The adults and the kids are in serious dynamics with each other [which is] very important,” says Posey. She and Newbern are new to the cast in Season 3, playing estranged family members who come to Granite Flats as outsiders. Newbern stars as Scottie Andrews, a successful NYC attorney who returns to his hometown under mysterious circumstances. Posey’s character, the filterless Alice White, arrives to take care of her nephew after serving 14 years in jail for killing her fiance. “To play a woman freshly out of prison who had been broken and comes out as this Auntie Mame type really appealed to me,” Posey says. “I’ve always wanted to play women of that time. It’s really interesting to me what they had to go through — all the injustices — and yet they clonk around in these housecoats. “[Alice] also has seizures in which I see into the future. There was no way I could say no to that.” The addition of Posey and Newbern’s character backstories also lends a darker tone to Season 3, in which the kids have disbanded their detective agency and are now trying to sort out their relationship problems in the midst of the town’s spy activities. “It takes it to a bit more sophisticated place,” Swofford says. “People who really loved the first season, which was kind of about kids investigating stuff … Season 3 takes it in a different direction and they either like it or they don’t.” Read More: [Continue]
