I finally got around to watching it last week and it was basically an average at best fare.

I was really surprised how off sounding a lot of the live-action actors were at voice acting. Which is unfortunate since they are great in live-action. I guess this is why we have some professional voice actors and live-action actors who only do one of both.

Season 2 really has to step up their game.

So apparently not only is the title character gonna be in live action form in Arrow, her series apparently also got a season 2 renewal.

Let's hope the season is longer.

@electronic456 They said it'd be the same deal and length. Only this time they're trying to air it on primetime.

Maybe if this gets green lit a whole series 26x26 might build more on the mythos.

A lot of this was really hard to watch honestly....the dialogue, the backstories, even the story were all cliche and uninspiring. The humor itself was pretty flat sadly too.

At least the animation was nice.

On the show's IMDB page it says stephen amell's been casted as Oliver. But we should at least wait untill the casting has come out.

I just hope the show is more Flash than Arrow, the dark images make me a little worries it'll take itself too seriously like Arrow.

Seeing how Arrow and Flash are both filmed in/around Vancouver, I'd like to think, unlikely that it'll be, that the voice-acting for this show will be based there as well. Consistency aside, we could stand a break from DC's usual LA-exclusive casting policy.

@CatsTuxedo Eh, I like that DC keeps things LA bound in terms of voice talent. Go with the location of the best of the best.
CatsTuxedo

@Soldierkei The only reason most American animation productions incorporate LA actors in the first place is because LA is where most American animation is produced anyway, and because of that it's more convenient for them to rope in actors that're closeby.

Also, overwhelming exposure doesn't automatically make them the best, if such a thing even exists.

I wouldn't really call LA actors the "best of the best". Sure a lot of good actors but that puts down a lot of other just as good if not better actors
Foxwolf (Admin)
said at 9:14 PM on Mon Jan 12 2015
@CatsTuxedo I guess if the show is a test of waters that could potentially yield a live-action series, and the producers are thinking ahead (like they seem to do with Arrow and Flash), they might well go with a Vancouver area actress who not only voices Vixen, but could end up playing her in live-action.
CatsTuxedo
said at 9:34 PM on Mon Jan 12 2015
@Foxwolf That's a good point. Out of who I know of, Rena Anakwe seems like a good prospect; she's a boxer along with being an actress, so she could definitely handle more action-oriented roles. Of course, there's always the possibility of a fresh face none of us are too acquainted with.

@Music Meister How are LA voice actors not "The Best of The Best"?
Music Meister (Moderator)

@Troodon2
How are Candian actors not the best of the best?

How are New York actors the best of the best?

How are Texas actors not the best of the best?

LA has a lot of talented poeple working there yes but saying its the "it's the best of the best" makes it seem like others are just weaker actors. How can you define being "the best", more range?
Paul Dobson has great range and he's Vangover based.
Acting?
Colleen Clinkbeard's acting as Luffy is amazing and she's not LA.
Again, LA is popular and has a lot of talented actors but I don't think "best of the best" is accurate.

@Music Meister I agree; many people have the wrong impression about L.A.. I mean, seriously, these days one has to be born in L.A. if that very person hopes to become a professional actor of any kind. New York has Broadway, but very few people are interested in stage theater. In fact I was crazy about working for 4Kids while it was still an active studio, but it closed down, so I had to look for other options.

@Jared Delgado

I wouldn't go that far. The idea that you have to be in LA is purely a misconception because most of the "glamourous" Hollywood stuff comes from there. You can be an actor anywhere. You mention New York--as far as I know, that is absolutely one of the better cities for acting in the US.

I'm surprised you say that very few people are interested in stage theatre. To some it may not be as glamourous as being in film, but stage is a fantastic way to get your foot in the door. There are local stage and theatre communities in virtually any town or city you'll go to. Getting gigs with these theatre companies should be especially important as a young actor. Everyone's got to start somewhere, and work is work. You don't have much to lose, and I can't see it as an opportunity to not gain valuable knowledge, skills, and connections. And hey, you know what's a perk of a smaller place? Less competition.

I will say that the idea of screen acting being centralized in one area isn't an American-exclusive problem. I'm no expert on this subject, but I'm fairly sure it's down to demographic and economic reasons. High population, with many of those people well-off economically? You're looking at a land of opportunities. In Canada the equivalents would probably be Toronto, Vancouver, and Montreal. In the UK it's London--although from what I can tell, London-centricity is a problem that affects far more than just acting. There are always going to be outliers, but generally speaking there are typically those notable cities that edge others out in terms of output.

@NCZ Yeah, I'm was probably speaking for myself, since I've been anxious to work on voice-over since childhood, but unfortunately they don't work on that in Puerto Rico. I cried hard for the rest of that day, even to sleep. And to make things worse, no one in my family had any artistic record or background. That totally shattered any hope for me to become the voice actor I wanted to be.

@Music Meister But in LA we had Mel Blanc, then Frank Welker, Jim Cummings, Kath Soucie, Rob Paulson, Cree Summer, Tara Strong, and even celebrities like Ron Pearlman, Tim Curry, and Lacey Chabert.
CatsTuxedo

@Troodon2 Looks like you missed the point entirely.

Yeah, all those guys are based in LA, but Texas has Chris Sabat, Luci Christian, Monica Rial, John Swasey, Colleen Clinkenbeard, Jamie Marchi, Mike McFarland, Kent Williams, Brittney Karbowski, Brina Palencia, Greg Ayres, Chuck Huber, Sonny Strait, Eric Vale and Caitlin Glass, and Vancouver has Scott McNeil, Tabitha St. Germain, Kathleen Barr, Brian Drummond, the Dobson Brothers, Lee Tockar, Sam Vincent, Ian James Corlett, Garry Chalk, Cathy Weseluck, Nicole Oliver, Colin Murdock, Terry Klassen, Ashleigh Ball and Peter New.

And guess what? Some of your beloved LA players like Tara Strong, David Kaye, Troy Baker and David Sobolov first got their big break OUTSIDE of LA!

The point we're trying to hammer into you and every other naysayer here is that whichever city an actor is based in does not determine how talented they themselves are as actors, and the fact that you're actively propping up LA as the only worthwhile pool for voice-acting at the expense of every other territory says more about you than anyone else.

@CatsTuxedo Then why don't the funimation actors do more western animation?
Troodon2
said at 1:37 PM on Mon Jan 26 2015
@CatsTuxedo Actually let me say that better. Yes I also think the canadian voice actors are good. I especially love Scott NcNeil, he's practically the canadian equivalent to Steve Blum. And yes I know where Troy Baker and Tara Strong came from.

Yeah I think they're good voice actors too. I'm sorry if I came off as being pig-headed.
NCZ (Admin)
said at 7:46 PM on Mon Jan 26 2015
@Troodon2 It's hard to get a type of work when it's scarce in your area. If Texas had a larger output of original animation then obviously there would be more opportunities for local actors. As it is most American animation is done in Hollywood/California and it's much easier to use talent who are in the same place as the relevant production studios. It's hard to blame someone for not accepting non-existent offers.

It's nice to see that the art-style is still the same bland old crap DC has been doing for several years now. Because I really hate creativity.

Anyway, I'm not a huge fan of the CW and the majority of their shows, so I'm probably just going to skip this.

@PsychicVoiceSpy I don't know dude. I don't think I personally would ever get tired of this art style.

It's the right blend between "animated" and "realism".
CatsTuxedo
said at 4:35 PM on Mon Jan 12 2015
@PsychicVoiceSpy Agreed. With such a resistance to experimentation and reluctance to promote other artistic talents with potential (weren't the DC Nation Shorts made for that sort of thing? Way to ignore that learning experience), it's hardly a wonder why DC's becoming more and more unpopular.
Soldierkei

@TheLemsterPju eh, go with what works. I'll never get tired of that art style. Might be the same general artist, but its not like they don't make variations and change things up. If it were the exact same, I'd agree with, but it hasn't been.
CatsTuxedo
said at 5:44 PM on Tue Jan 13 2015
@TheLemsterPju If this style was genuine realism, the characters wouldn't all look the same as each other. All this style does is omit any quality that could even potentially be interpreted as "cartoony" so that all that's left is blandness.

Genuine realism would capture all the diversity and individual quirks you can find in the human race (or even just your neighborhood). In that respect, I could argue that most of Naoki Urasawa's work or even Yvon of the Yukon are more realistic in style than the artificial sterility DC's cranked out these past few years.

@Xymor In the medium of animation, story is just a jumping-off point. It's the animators that should be doing the real heavy-lifting in creating genuine characters and great acting and making a show fun to watch.

Having that said, it's a shame these big studios are content in ignoring perfectly capable American animation talent in favor of voiceless Korean sweatshop workers, leaving the rest of us with bland designs and acting to go with equally bland writing.

If this turns out well maybe we can finally have some good DC cartoons that can actually last more than a season.

While it's interesting to see the CW dabbling in animated series, I have to question what the point is in this being animated with the other two DC shows being live-action and why this is a digital-only release while the other two are on-the-air.

And this is putting aside my usual gripe of the style self-consciously refusing to take advantage of the animation medium in any way.

You also have to keep in mind, this ties into the CW Flash and Arrow shows.

Ohhh yes. Always loved Vixen, glad she's getting the spotlight. Is it too much to ask for Gina Torres to reprise? :P

Also if Arrow and Flash appear, I'm assuming Amell and Gustin will be reprising.
