Is “Flashpoint” Coming Out as an Animated Movie? Did Batman Voice Actor Kevin Conroy Spill the Beans?
Everything we knew about DC Comics changed in a flash last September, and now it looks like DC’s animated movies are about to face their very own Flashpoint with voice actor Kevin Conroy of Batman The Animated Series, Batman: Arkham City (and… tons of other Batman voice roles) fame letting it slip that he’s voicing the Dark Knight in an animated adaptation of the mini-series that opened the door to DC’s New 52 relaunch.
Conroy revealed the project during an appearance on this week’s episode of Comic Book Club, telling the audience
Just last night, I recorded a new animated movie that features the Flash, it’s more about the Flash, but Batman is in it as well… It’s a Flash… Flash… Flashpoint. Flashpoint? I think it’s Flashpoint.
Absent an official announcement from DC or Warner Bros., it’s unknown how closely an animated Flashpoint would track to the comic version (and its many tie-ins), or whether fans should expect a rebooted animated universe at the end of the story, complete with animated features and series featuring relaunched and redesigned characters from the New 52.
The next officially announced DC animated movie is Superman Vs. The Elite, based on Joe Kelly’s “What’s So Funny About Truth, Justice and the American Way?” story from Action Comics #775.
