EDITOR'S OPINIONHappy Easter Everyone! Yeah I know this is a rather strange choice for a VC on Easter (but hey this isn't the first time something like this has happened). Anyways today on the Batman Voice Compare section we do a little something for this hired assassin with a "Never Miss" reputation whom is one of Batman's various foes... DEADSHOT! We shall actually start off with the DCAU series *Justice League in which Deadshot made his debut by appearing in a few episodes voiced by Michael Rosenbaum. Michael played the role of Deadshot as a killer with a bit of a sarcastic sense of humor though this isn't the first time Michael ever had a remotely snarky role and Michael does that well here. Michael Rosenbaum's performance as Deadshot does have a good sense of cockiness as Michael does a good job playing the role of a villain whom would be more than happy to shoot off his mouth just as much as he would shot someone with his gun. Basically to make a long story short Michael Rosenbaum's performance as Deadshot is another good example of his work and another example of the voice work in the Justice League series.
Now we shall go for the Batman Gotham Knight feature in which Jim Meskimen gets to take over the role of Deadshot here. Unlike his DCAU counterpart Jim Meskimen played the role of Deadshot as a smooth talking sophisticated socialite whom also happens to be a hired assassin and Jim's voice and performance for Deadshot certainly does work for the role here. Jim's performance not only had a good sense of smugness but it also sounded elegant without sounding a bit too camp lets just say and its another fine example of the the voice work in that movie. Overall I am calling this one a tie as both Michael Rosenbaum and Jim Meskimen play the role of Deadshot rather well in their own way.
(Update: Tom Kenny played Deadshot in Batman Brave and the Bold, Chris Cox played Batman Arkham City and Neal McDonaugh played Deadshot in Batman: Assault on Arkham. Tom's was an interesting surprise as Deadshot as he plays the role in a surprisingly serious way that actually works pretty well with the role. Chris Cox was quite a natural in the role as well as while he does sound suitably sinister yet charismatic as well. Neal was not bad as his voice is pretty good but his performance while not bad but is a bit on the generic side and not one of Neal's most memorable performances. Overall none of these guys are bad but I am going with Jim and Chris the most here.)
