I feel like the voices in this show are a bunch of great choices, but lack in execution.

My opinion on this show is (unfortunatly) very Similar to Starscreamfan's Opinion of 'The Spectacular Spider-Man'....

@HyperVoiceActing I don't Like The Animation, the Humour for me usually falls flat, the Characters lack depth and I find a lot of the voice acting to be uninspired (either through weak castings or through ADR Misdirection).

@EPA Deane This show is about having fun, that's why I like it. It's a great callback to old timey stuff.

People just have different mindsets.

Someone with my mindset prefers fun, engaging stories with a great sense of adventure and thrills which unfortunately, I don't find in a lot of TV shows today (it's why I became a big fan of old time radio shows).

@Starscreamsfan This show feels like a lacklustre Retread of 'Batman: Brave and The Bold' (A Show That I Actually enjoyed).

That show had a Light Hearted Tone.... most of the Time. It knew when to give character development and Actually had intimidating Enemies (e.g. Tornado Tyrant or Equinox) from time to time.

I also find it facinating that you Lambast the Art Style of 'The Spectacular Spider-Man', when this show has awkward and Uneven Animation.

This Show is admittedly Better than Teen Titans Go, because it doesn't insult a predecessor Series by treating it with Derogatory Humour.....

But this show Just Feels like A Disposable time Waster.....

I Related More to The DCAU Justice League/ Justice League Unlimited shows. Those didn't feel as Pandering as this.

@EPA Deane I respect your opinion, but I'm just not into some of the more popular stuff.

And I never said the animation in Action was great, but unlike Spectacular, I really enjoy the stories here.

I never could relate to some of the DCAU cartoons, 'cause they kinda bore me and in the case of Superman, I've seen better handled attempts (like in the old radio show and the 50's live-action series).

Yeah, I might have been born in the wrong era, but this is just my opinion.

@Starscreamsfan For the Record.... I Did watch Older Superhero Shows (e.g The 60's Spiderman and Batman Shows) Before I watched my favourite Incarnations.... so saying that I have Initial Viewing Bias is not really going to work here.

There are Elements that I like about some Older Shows, but I Find them frustrating to get through.

On One Last Note: I prefer Eartha Kitt's Catwoman to Julie Newmar's portrayal. Her Comedic Deliveries were more Entertaining to me.

@EPA Deane I'm not saying that you're biased, 'cause I can tell that you've seen some old stuff. I'm just saying that I personally feel out of place, hence why my opinions are different to the norm.

I'm more fond of the older stuff not just because I saw it first (though it's partly that), but because I could see what people like my grandfather liked about them. So yeah, with the old stuff, it's more emotional attachement than anything else.

On that note: I actually liked all three live-action 60's Catwoman actresses. They all brought their own charm and uniqueness to the role.

@Starscreamsfan - I guess a preference in how both of them handle humor or writing is widely subjective. Yes, the writing in the DCAU or Spectacular is comparatively more toned down and serious than Action or, since it was brought up, Brave and the Bold. But I don't think it's completely fair to compete the two types since they're both trying to be vastly different things.

The DCAU and Spectacular were trying to have more mature and grounded stories that take themselves more seriously. However something that sets them apart from other things that try and fail at that (like the Nolan Batman films or Man of Steel) is they know not to take themselves too seriously and that it's safe to have a sense of humor about the inherit silliness of the series here and there (not unlike what the MCU does actually). Just because its humor is more subtle or sometimes deadpan doesn't mean it's lacking in it entirely. That's like saying Ghostbusters has no humor.

Action and Brave and the Bold, conversely, are trying to relish and celebrate in the aforementioned silliness of the world of comic books; BatB I'd say moreso since it's clearly an homage to the Gold and Silver Age of comics. But what made BatB work was that it had a clear self-awareness of the type of stories it was trying to tell. I mean when you see the Justice League play a baseball match against the Legion of Doom, you can tell the writers clearly knew what they were doing. But it also knew when to dial back and be serious or sincere, giving their characters moments to feel human; Chill of the Night being the go-to example of this (not to say it was the only example of it mind you)

Action does seem to be going with a similar route as BatB, and you can't deny it's certainly colorful and action packed. But so far it lacks the slow moments and sincerity that I liked about BatB or that everyone loved about the DCAU and Spectacular. That's not to say it'll be completely devoid of it, I mean the show just started. But right off the bat I can see why people wouldn't be too taken by it.

@HyperVoiceActing I'm just curious, don't mean to get on your case at all as I generally agree with the point you're trying to make, but what's your beef with Nolan's Batman films?
GreenGoblin75
said at 9:23 PM on Mon Jan 30 2017
@Metabad
I think maybe just that they lacked comedy elements. Which I didn't mind since it was more realist. And I loved all three movies.
HyperVoiceActing
said at 6:06 AM on Tue Jan 31 2017
@Metabad - My problem with the Nolan films is that I think for the most part, they took themselves way too seriously to the point of being a little depressing sometimes. Not to mention that a lot of the character dialog doesn't really feel that organic, just the characters making philosophical speeches.

I think, as much as I'll be lambasted for saying this, The Dark Knight was probably the worst with it (I never saw Rises so I can't say if it got better or not), particular with Heath Ledger's Joker. It feels like Goyer took away all the charm and intrigue the character had and turned him into another generic episode of Criminal Minds. Trying to be realistic, in my opinion, isn't a good justification to make a character that's usually so entertaining into something so dull and run-of-the-mill psycho.

@HyperVoiceActing Ditto

I like Nolan's Batman movies, but I felt his extensive use of Hyperrealism may have done a... "slight" disservice to the comic book community; (looking at you Zack Snyder) so while superheroes can be taken seriously, since there are risks and dilemmas when it comes to saving the day, and there are indeed consequences to come with their actions, in the end one must remember these are still fictional characters wearing bright, multicolored outfits who go out using their powers and abilities to help people and fight crazy clowns, talking gorillas, robot aliens, alien robots, and literal gods of mischief.

Bottom line, it's okay for superheroes to be a little silly from time to time, that's part of why we enjoy the genre in comics, movies, and tv in the first place, because it's fun!

@HyperVoiceActing I dunno, I think (seeing the recent animated features based on classic DC comics, as well as the DCAU) Nolan films & more serious stuff pays an homage to that. TKJ is serious, Arkham is serious, DKR is *super* serious. 2004 Batman cartoon is quite serious, as is Batman Beyond. Batman is *supposed* to be a very serious character, that's what makes the story & moral dilemmas have the kind of weight that they do.

@Troodon2 Comic books are about fun, but the amazing thing about animation is that you can do things that'd be impossible in live-action. The very draw of things like anime is that it *can* be serious. We have tons of detective & action-heavy drama stories in Japanese comics/cartoons, & no one heavy into the stuff complains that "they aren't fun enough". & with the money that Hollywood companies like WB & Disney have, you can do (theoretically) even bigger things. It's just...superhero stories always get people imagining possibilities, you know? I think we *can* take them seriously.
HyperVoiceActing
said at 8:13 AM on Sat Mar 11 2017
@huzaifa_ahmed - Taking them seriously is one thing, but outright killing any sense of color or fun or excitement is the bigger problem at hand here. The Marvel Cinematic Universe takes itself plenty seriously but it still has a lot of color and fun without ruining those more serious moments. And being animated is no excuse to get rid of that. If anything, being animated also means you have a chance to really go to town with how inherently absurd and larger than life these characters and stories can be.

I do really like this from the several episodes I've watched. I'd say the one big problem that I have is that while some episodes feel like they're just the right length, there are some stories that I feel would've benefited from the 21 minute run time since a couple seem a bit too rushed.

Other than that I think the voicework is really well done, designs are nice, and the animation is also pretty good. It's nothing fantastic but it's fun for what it is
HyperVoiceActing
said at 7:49 AM on Sun Dec 4 2016
I just finished the first episode (Power Outage) and it left a pretty decent first impression. The voice acting for that episode was pretty good, especially for Supes and Diana. Superman's voice actor is a pretty dead ringer for Tim Daly/George Newbern, and Diana's definitely fits a seasoned warrior like her.

The animation is ... both good and not so good. Everything moves pretty smoothly, but there seem to be a few instances where an animation looked rough or unfinished (like with Wonder Woman sending Kalathos across the park) Then again this is only going off one episode. I need to see if it gets better from there.

The writing was fairly solid for the most part. It had some pretty funny moments (like some of Jimmy's moments and when J'onn asks Batman how good his joke was) and nothing particularly cringeworthy yet.

Overall I definitely say you should give it a look at. Hopefully you enjoy it too

Would have preferred a new Justice League show to have a tone similar to the originals. :P But hey, I can get behind a show that looks like it has tone not dissimilar to Batman: Brave and the Bold.
ScottMyers

@ScottMyers Having seen a few of the recently released clips, I find myself a bit more skeptical than I was before. Some of the humor worked well, but Blue Beetle insisting the villain call him by his superhero name twice was cringe-worthy in my opinion, as was the clip where (Toyman I think?) puts various members of the Justice League in an arcade game. The dancing literally made me wince, and I'm iffy on Khary Payton's voice acting being directed the same way as it is in Teen Titans Go. I would've preferred if he sounded like he did in the original. I find his current take more grating than it needs to be. Also, it's a bit distracting to see Mogul portrayed as a dumb bruiser when he was such a menacing, ominous force in Young Justice. I mean, "you will be in space"? Ugh. And while the animation is still fluid, I noticed a couple of moments that were stiffer than I expected them to be. On the plus side, I was pleasantly surprised that Jason J. Lewis sounds an awful lot like Tim Daly and George Newbern as Superman (though the delivery of his first line in the Mongul clip was on the flat side). And Joker was legitimately funny in his clip, so there's still reason to hope. At this moment in time, though, I'm definitely on the pessimistic side.

@CLG Damn, I was hoping that was a character that Seitz'd get to play. He's like the dubbing equivalent of John DiMaggio, with his gruff, brutish voice & large, resonant frame.

Dont get me wrong, John is awesome, & I love his work, but I was stoked to see Pat in Conroy's & Strong's recording session photo, & it would be cool to see a follow-up, especially because he's been in like *EVERY* dub in LA, tons of the small fighting games, & plenty of FUNimation dubs.

Whereas John is already Lobo here, & diversifying the cast would make it more..unique per character.

But, not *all* the cast has been announced yet, so..*crossing my fingers*.

I've never seen any DC stuff that I remember much of, but looking at these character designs & from what BTVA has taught me...

I think, out of the un-announced castings, Patrick Seitz would most fit Steppenwolf, Swamp Thing, Mr. Freeze, or Solomon Grundy.

Grundy especially, seeing that Pat's covered for Fred (who was one of the best players for the character) in the past, in the non-union English dub of SSB4.

If he uses more intensity as he does in the dubs of Dead or Alive (as Bass), he could easily pull of Grundy.

@Regomania Dini's a writer, not an artist, so you can't really get his vibe from any 'look'.
