Fans have been clamoring for an animated reunion of the Justice League / Justice League Unlimited cast and characters since the show went off the air. Now, though, an online groundswell of interest is putting pressure on Warner Bros to make it a reality.
The Hollywood Reporter’s “Heat Vision” section features this write-up talking about the fandom interest, and speaking to the original cast about the potential for reunion.
Kevin Conry (Batman):
“I’m often at Comic-Cons across the country where I get to interact with the audience, and a frequently asked question is why there hasn’t been a Justice League animated movie based on the animated TV series,” says Kevin Conroy, who has voiced Batman for 25 years. “There’s a large and loyal fan base there that you’d think the studio would want to tap into. To me it’s a no-brainer.”
Susan Eisenberg (Wonder Woman):
“Well, selfishly, I’d love to explore the relationship between Bruce and Diana a bit more, and I know there are some wonderbat fans out there who feel the same way,” says Wonder Woman actress Susan Eisenberg. “But mostly, I would just love to see a story where The League is united in its fight of good vs. evil, with some romance and levity thrown in for good measure!”
Phil LaMarr (Green Lantern):
Green Lantern actor Phil LaMarr says the fan campaign is validating as a performer, noting, “Your first hope is that someone will see your work, your second is that it will, in some way, endure.” LaMarr says he’s not totally surprised a reunion has not yet materialized, though. “Executives tend to look for the biggest, shiniest new thing, not the best, most-loved old thing — until someone proves there’s an audience for it.”
