POW! ZAP! ‘Batman’ cartoon cast

Comics, Television

According to his blog WWdN, former Star Trek: The Next Generation wunderkind Wil Wheaton is one of the voices behind Cartoon Network’s upcoming series Batman: The Brave and the Bold, which will pair with The Clone Wars on Friday nights (see original entry).

Wheaton, who was a guest at Phoenix Cactus Comicon in January (story here), blogs that he can’t reveal anything about his character because “apparently, it’s a Darth Vader-is-his-father kind of secret.”

[Darth Vader is whose father?]

Diedrich Bader, who played Oswald on The Drew Carey Show, will be providing the voice of the Caped Crusader.

Batman: The Brave and the Bold is based on a comic book series of the same name and features the Dark Knight teaming up with the Green Arrow, Aquaman and other superheroes.
