Don’t you love it when the bad guy wins? You know that kind of cool feeling when a supervillain gets his shot in? I hope so because that’s exactly what I’m expecting the new Lego DC: Supervillains game to be like. The game is stacked with voices that we already know and love, one of which being Kevin Conroy who says that it’s fun to have Batman be translatable to different situations and different mediums. He notes that’s it’s hard to keep it fresh and authentic but it’s cool to be put in a comical role. And of course we had to talk about Batman: The Animated Series, it’s nearly impossible when in the presence of Kevin Conroy.
Fred Tatasciore also give his insight into how he approached multiple roles for this project, my favorite of which is Solomon Grundy. He even notes how the directions he would be given ranged from make it darker to make it dummer, two qualities that make up the undead brute. Julie Nathanson also spoke about her characters, Silver Banshee, who Nathanson also voice in Suicide Squad: Hell to Pay noting how the environment of a character can change and so the voice needs to adapt. Overall this game has a lot of stellar talent behind and Lego Heads Justin Ames and Arthur Parsons are excited to shift the tone over to the villains.
The team behind the LEGO DC Super-Villains videogame, including Arthur Parsons (head of design, TT Games) and fan-favorite Batman voice actor Kevin Conroy, along with Tara Strong (voice of Harley Quinn), Julie Nathanson (voice of Silver Banshee), Fred Tatasciore (voice of Solomon Grundy, Clayface, Black Adam, Killer Croc), Ames Kirshen (VP, Interactive & Animation, DC Entertainment), Justin Ramsden (Designer, Super Heroes, The LEGO Group) and moderator Andrea Rene (What’s Good Games) give an inside look at the first LEGO game to put players at the center of a villain-centric adventure packed with favorite locations and characters from across the DC Universe. This celebration of villainy will provide fans with exciting character reveals and details about the story. Players have the ability to create and play as a super-villain throughout LEGO DC Super-Villains, unleashing mischievous antics and wreaking havoc in an action-packed, hilarious story written in collaboration with DC Comics. Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and The LEGO Group will release the game on October 16. | Schedule

I’m a full blown fanboy that is waist deep in everything from comic books, TV shows, movies, anime, and the lot. Growing up my Dad was extremely influential in providing the best of the best in terms of classic sources of entertainment which has undoubtedly shaped my interests to this day. While I definitely have more of an interest in Marvel I am not out of the loop when it comes to DC, Darkhorse, or Image comics as wells as each’s additional media content. I love the comic book culture and when I’m not geeking out I’m listening to or playing music and skateboarding around San Diego, which is way better than New Jersey.
