Neil Patrick Harris – Voice of The Flash in “Justice League: The New Frontier”

Somewhere between the Emmy Award nominations and the critically-acclaimed stage performances from Broadway to Los Angeles, Neil Patrick Harris still finds room in his busy schedule for his guilty pleasure: comic books and the super heroes within.

Harris is now back on the set of How I Met Your Mother but he had time during the industrys recent vacation to enjoy the transition from comic book reader to super hero actor as the voice as The Flash in the DC Universe original, animated direct-to-DVD release, Justice League: The New Frontier. In its first week of release, reviews and sales of the new film from Warner Home Video, Warner Premiere, Warner Bros. Animation and DC Comics have been equally stellar, and Harris has been particularly well received in his key role.

To voice a super hero is phenomenal, Harris said. I couldve been the sixth-super-hero-on-the-right and Id have been happy, but Flash actually gets to help save the day, so this is great.

Harris continues to peruse his local comics stores, even taking a moment during a recent interview to voice his dismay when he thought Los Angeles standard Golden Apple Comics had closed and relief when he discovered the store had simply moved from its location of nearly three decades.

“Teen Titans: The Judas Contract” Animated Feature On Hold

Marv Wolfman, writer of the original Teen Titans: The Judas Contract comic storyline, has confirmed the reports appearing online stating the movie is currently on hold because, according to Warner Home Video, there may not be enough of an audience for a Teen Titans: The Judas Contract animated feature to be successful. Teen Titans: The Judas Contract was originally scheduled to be the third DC Universe Animated Movie before Warner Home Video delayed it, opting to produce Batman: Gotham Knight and Wonder Woman direct-to-video animated features instead. While the Teen Titans: The Judas Contract is on hold, that does not mean the title is dead. It’s just currently on hold as other projects are developed.

Wolfman continues, saying that fans should contact Warner Home Video to let them know of the demand for a Teen Titans: The Judas Contract animated feature. Below is the contact information to send your thoughts and concerns regarding the future of the Teen Titans: The Judas Contract direct-to-video animated feature.
