In the process, we finally learned which DC characters will appear in the film…and it's a helluva deep dive into the DC Universe's underworld. Even if you’re a seasoned comics fan, there are probably a few names on the roster that you didn’t recognize. You’re going to want to know these guys, even if there’s a pretty good chance that most of them won’t make it to the final reel. So, to help get you ready for <a href="/videos/the-suicide-squad-dc-fandome-exclusive-sneak-peek">next summer’s most explosive movie,</a> here's a handy guide to the new members of Gunn's Task Force X...<br />  </p> <p style="text-align: center;"><img alt="" src="/sites/default/files/imce/2020/09-SEP/suicide-squad-bloodsport_5f6c01ebbe8738.96129146.jpg" style="width: 900px; height: 652px;" /></p> <h2><strong>Bloodsport</strong></h2> <p><strong>Real Name:</strong> Robert DuBois</p> <p><strong>Portrayed By:</strong> Idris Elba</p> <p><strong>First Appearance:</strong> 1987’s <em>Superman #4</em></p> <p><strong>Biography:</strong> Robert DuBois is a former soldier who never left the war behind him. He perceives everything around him as a battlefield and suited up as Bloodsport to indulge his militaristic mindset.</p> <p><strong>Special Talent:</strong> He’s a fearless fighter and has been known to pack a Kryptonite bullet or two in his arsenal.</p> <p><strong>Recommended Media: </strong>Bloodsport can be seen in the Justice League Unlimited episode “The Cat and the Canary.”</p> <p><strong>Odds of Survival: </strong>50 to 1. He’s crazy enough to accidentally blow himself up.<br />  </p> <h2 style="text-align: center;"><img alt="" src="/sites/default/files/imce/2020/09-SEP/suicide-squad-king-shark_5f6c022849c948.42555698.jpg" style="width: 700px; height: 1047px;" /></h2> <h2><strong>King Shark</strong></h2> <p><strong>Real Name:</strong> Nanaue</p> <p><strong>Portrayed By:</strong> King Shark is a shark (but really, he’s played by Steve Agee)</p> <p><strong>First Appearance:</strong> 1994’s <em>Superboy #0</em> (cameo), 1994’s <em>Superboy #9</em> (full appearance)</p> <p><strong>Biography:</strong> Nanuae is the son of Kamo, the Shark God. Part human, but with the ferocious nature of a shark, King Shark has made a name for himself with his brutal strength and sharp jaws.</p> <p><strong>Special Talent:</strong> He’s a f**king shark!</p> <p><strong>Recommended Media: </strong>If you still haven’t seen the Harley Quinn animated series—in which King Shark is a regular—don’t waste another second!</p> <p><strong>Odds of Survival:</strong> 4 to 1, as long as he doesn’t run into Roy Scheider.</p> <p style="text-align: center;"><br /><img alt="" src="/sites/default/files/imce/2020/09-SEP/suicide-squad-weasel_5f6c0265bb7607.72382392.jpg" style="width: 800px; height: 697px;" /></p> <h2><strong>Weasel</strong></h2> <p><strong>Real Name:</strong> John Monroe</p> <p><strong>Portrayed By:</strong> Sean Gunn</p> <p><strong>First Appearance:</strong> 1985’s <em>Firestorm #38</em></p> <p><strong>Biography:</strong> John Monroe was a student who took his nickname "Weasel" to heart. He became a costumed killer and fought Firestorm several times. Eventually, he mutated into a weasel-like creature.</p> <p><strong>Special Talent:</strong> He’s pretty agile, and possibly feral.</p> <p><strong>Recommended Media:</strong> There’s a criminal named Weasel in the <em>Batman: The Brave and the Bold</em> episode “Night of the Huntress.” It’s probably not the same character, but you should watch the show anyway because it’s good.</p> <p><strong>Odds of Survival:</strong> 50 to 1</p> <p style="text-align: center;"><br /><img alt="" src="/sites/default/files/imce/2020/09-SEP/suicide-squad-peacemaker_5f6c031eb22562.16685446.jpg" style="width: 800px; height: 664px;" /></p> <h2><strong>Peacemaker</strong></h2> <p><strong>Real Name:</strong> Christopher Smith</p> <p><strong>Portrayed By:</strong> John Cena</p> <p><strong>First Appearance:</strong> Charlton 24ֱ' <em>The Fightin’ 5 #40</em></p> <p><strong>Biography:</strong> Christopher Smith is a pacifist, although you’d never know it by looking at his body count. He believes in peace at all cost and will kill anybody to make that happen.</p> <p><strong>Special Talent:</strong> No, he’s not invisible. That’s a John Cena wrestling bit and it has nothing to do with the Peacemaker character. That being said, Christopher Smith is very good with firearms.</p> <p><strong>Recommended Media:</strong> Until his new <a href="/blog/2020/09/23/the-suicide-squads-peacemaker-blasts-his-way-to-hbo-max">HBO Max spinoff series debuts,</a> we suggest checking out the 1987 Peacemaker limited series to see his pacifism in action.</p> <p><strong>Odds of Survival:</strong> He’s John Cena, it’s not even a question. We can’t see him dying in this…then again, we can’t see him at all.</p> <p style="text-align: center;"><br /><img alt="" src="/sites/default/files/imce/2020/09-SEP/suicide-squad-sol-soria-juan-soria_5f6c033ed2b1f3.23160361.jpg" style="width: 800px; height: 671px;" /></p> <h2><strong>Sol Soria</strong></h2> <p><strong>Real Name:</strong> Sol Soria</p> <p><strong>Portrayed By:</strong> Alice Braga</p> <p><strong>First Appearance:</strong> A character named Juan Soria first appeared in 2018’s <em>Suicide Squad #33.</em> It’s possible that Sol is either a relative or a gender-swapped version of Juan, though it’s probably more likely that she’s a new character created for the film.</p> <p><strong>Biography:</strong> If she is a take on Juan Soria, he was a superhero fanboy who had dreams of joining the Justice League. A nanite infection gave Juan the power to manipulate locks, but that wasn’t good enough for his Justice League audition. Dejected, Juan turned to a life of crime.</p> <p><strong>Special Talent:</strong> Juan Soria can pick any lock thanks to the nanites infecting his hand.</p> <p><strong>Recommended Reading:</strong> Check out 2018’s <em>Suicide Squad #33-34</em> to see Soria’s short-lived tenure in the Squad. </p> <p><strong>Odds of Survival:</strong> 5,000 to 1. We don’t even know who this person is, and their possible comic book counterpart survived for less than two issues.</p> <p style="text-align: center;"><br /><img alt="" src="/sites/default/files/imce/2020/09-SEP/suicide-squad-the-thinker-2_5f6c039c0e47a6.85885233.jpg" style="width: 750px; height: 789px;" /></p> <h2><strong>The Thinker</strong></h2> <p><strong>Real Name:</strong> Clifford DeVoe</p> <p><strong>Portrayed By:</strong> Peter Capaldi</p> <p><strong>First Appearance:</strong> <em>All-Flash #12</em></p> <p><strong>Biography:</strong> Clifford DeVoe is a master tactician who uses his keen mind to commit crimes. Although he possesses no super-strength, he wears a helmet to increase his intelligence and his enhanced brain has proven to be more than a match for the Justice League and the Justice Society.</p> <p><strong>Special Talent:</strong> He’s smart as s**t, and he won’t shut up about it. It’s kind of insufferable.</p> <p><strong>Recommended Media:</strong> The Thinker battles Batman and the Atom in the <em>Batman: The Brave and the Bold</em> episode “Sword of the Atom.” He was also the Season 4 big bad on The CW’s <em>The Flash.</em></p> <p><strong>Odds of Survival:</strong> Pretty much guaranteed thanks to Peter Capaldi. His characters don’t die, they just regenerate into someone new.</p> <p style="text-align: center;"><br /><img alt="" src="/sites/default/files/imce/2020/09-SEP/suicide-squad-tdk-arm-fall-off-boy_5f6c03f32ff5e9.05943564.jpg" style="width: 800px; height: 669px;" /></p> <h2><strong>TDK</strong></h2> <p><strong>Real Name:</strong> Floyd Belkin</p> <p><strong>Portrayed By:</strong> Nathan Fillion</p> <p><strong>First Appearance:</strong> <em>Secret Origins #46</em></p> <p><strong>Biography:</strong> Floyd Belkin was a 30th Century man who was rejected by the Legion of Super-Heroes. Using his self-dismemberment powers, he struck back using the name Arm-Fall-Off-Boy. Yes, it’s weird.</p> <p><strong>Special Talent:</strong> He can detach his own arm and use it as a weapon, which I guess is pretty metal. The problem is that they also tend to fall off at inopportune times.</p> <p><strong>Recommended Reading:</strong> Check out TDK’s failed Legion audition in 1993’s <em>Legionnaires #2.</em></p> <p><strong>Odds of Survival:</strong> 7,000 to 1. We love Nathan Fillion, but we still wouldn’t put too much faith in the survival of a character named for self-dismemberment.</p> <p style="text-align: center;"><br /><img alt="" src="/sites/default/files/imce/2020/09-SEP/suicide-squad-javelin_5f6c0444d1c1a7.34112225.jpg" style="width: 750px; height: 774px;" /></p> <h2><strong>The Javelin</strong></h2> <p><strong>Real Name:</strong> Like Cher or Madonna, he has no other name. He’s just “The Javelin.”</p> <p><strong>Portrayed By:</strong> Flula Borg</p> <p><strong>First Appearance:</strong> 1984’s <em>Green Lantern #173</em></p> <p><strong>Biography:</strong> Javelin was an Olympic athlete who one day said, “Throwing things is fun, but you know what else is fun? Crime. Maybe I can combine those two hobbies...” Low and behold, the world’s first javelin-themed super-villain was created!</p> <p><strong>Special Talent:</strong> He can throw things, which could come in handy on a mission. But then again, it means he’s just as talented as my 5-year-old nephew. </p> <p><strong>Recommended Media:</strong> The Javelin can be seen in the <em>Batman: The Brave and the Bold</em> episode “Scorn of the Star Sapphire.”</p> <p><strong>Odds of Survival:</strong> 30 to 1. Say what you will, but he was able to give Green Lantern a run for his money.</p> <p style="text-align: center;"><br /><img alt="" src="/sites/default/files/imce/2020/09-SEP/suicide-squad-savant_5f6c04851a0ae4.17136080.jpg" style="width: 900px; height: 526px;" /></p> <h2><strong>Savant</strong></h2> <p><strong>Real Name:</strong> Brian Durlin</p> <p><strong>Portrayed By:</strong> Mary Poppins—I mean, Michael Rooker</p> <p><strong>First Appearance:</strong> 2003’s <em>Birds of Prey #56</em></p> <p><strong>Biography:</strong> Savant was a rich man who wanted to use his resources as a vigilante. After Batman discouraged his efforts, Savant decided to become a computer blackmailer instead.</p> <p><strong>Special Talent:</strong> Durlin is great with computers, and even greater in hand-to-hand combat.</p> <p><strong>Recommended Reading:</strong> Check out Savant’s tenure with Task Force X in 2011’s <em>Suicide Squad #1-8.</em></p> <p><strong>Odds of Survival:</strong> 2 to 1. It’s Michael Rooker, folks. Besides, he's already died in a James Gunn film.</p> <p style="text-align: center;"><br /><img alt="" src="/sites/default/files/imce/2020/09-SEP/suicide-squad-blackguard_5f6c04ce120d25.02871575.jpg" style="width: 900px; height: 637px;" /></p> <h2><strong>Blackguard</strong></h2> <p><strong>Real Name:</strong> Richard Hertz</p> <p><strong>Portrayed By:</strong> Pete Davidson</p> <p><strong>First Appearance:</strong> 1986’s <em>Booster Gold #1</em></p> <p><strong>Biography:</strong> Richard Hertz is a thug who was given powerful upgrades by the 1000 criminal organization.</p> <p><strong>Special Talent:</strong> Hertz can manipulate the energy around him to create a mace and shield.</p> <p><strong>Recommended Reading:</strong> See Blackguard in action in the 2007 <em>Suicide Squad: Raise the Flag</em> limited series.</p> <p><strong>Odds of Survival:</strong> 50 to 1</p> <p style="text-align: center;"><br /><img alt="" src="/sites/default/files/imce/2020/09-SEP/suicide-squad-ratcatcher_5f6c0528124ee8.03730129.jpg" style="width: 800px; height: 643px;" /></p> <h2><strong>Ratcatcher 2</strong></h2> <p><strong>Real Name:</strong> While Ratcatcher’s cinematic name is unknown, her comic counterpart was named Otis Flannegan.</p> <p><strong>Portrayed By:</strong> Daniela Melchior</p> <p><strong>First Appearance:</strong> <em>Detective 24ֱ #585</em></p> <p><strong>Biography:</strong> Otis Flannegan was an exterminator who learned how to command rodents. Using an army of rats, he embarked on a crime spree as the villainous Ratcatcher.</p> <p><strong>Special Talent:</strong> Ratcatcher can summon rats, which will bring down the value of any building. If Ratcatcher 2 has the same powers, this means she can control the global economy, making her the most powerful villain of all.</p> <p><strong>Recommended Media:</strong> For a disturbing take on Ratcatcher, check out the <em>Harley Quinn</em> episode “There’s No Place to Go But Down.”</p> <p><strong>Odds of Survival:</strong> 200 to 1. The fact that she’s called Ratcatcher 2 implies that one has already died. This doesn’t exactly bode well.</p> <p style="text-align: center;"><br /><img alt="" src="/sites/default/files/imce/2020/09-SEP/suicide-squad-polka-dot-man_5f6c058911ffd4.06050804.jpg" style="width: 750px; height: 695px;" /></p> <h2><strong>Polka-Dot Man</strong></h2> <p><strong>Real Name:</strong> Abner Krill</p> <p><strong>Portrayed By:</strong> David Dastmalchian</p> <p><strong>First Appearance:</strong> <em>Detective 24ֱ #300</em></p> <p><strong>Biography:</strong> Abner Krill wears a suit covered in colorful dots, so in a city like Gotham, it’s amazing he could leave the house without getting beat up. During his crime sprees, he threw those dots at Batman and law enforcement officers and each of them served as a different kind of tool or weapon.</p> <p><strong>Special Talent:</strong> He can throw polka-dots at his enemies. Heroes, beware!</p> <p><strong>Recommended Media:</strong> Keep your eyes peeled during the <em>Batman: The Brave and the Bold</em> episode “A Bat Divided” and you just might spot the Polka-Dot Man!</p> <p><strong>Odds of Survival:</strong> 6,700 to 1. There’s a reason nobody uses polka-dots in warfare.</p> <p style="text-align: center;"><br /><img alt="" src="/sites/default/files/imce/2020/09-SEP/suicide-squad-mongal_5f6c05dab960f2.69742912.jpg" style="width: 900px; height: 496px;" /></p> <h2><strong>Mongal</strong></h2> <p><strong>Real Name: </strong>Mongal</p> <p><strong>Portrayed By: </strong>Mayling Ng</p> <p><strong>First Appearance: </strong><em>Showcase ’95 #8</em></p> <p><strong>Biography: </strong>Mongal is the daughter of the alien warlord Mongul, and like her father, she has an appetite for tyranny and violence.</p> <p><strong>Special Talent: </strong>She’s STRONG, and we’re not talking about “help you move a couch” strong. She’s “throw a bus without breaking a sweat” strong.</p> <p><strong>Recommended Media: </strong>Mongal creates some chaos in the <em>Batman: The Brave and the Bold</em> episode “Duel of the Double Crossers.”</p> <p><strong>Odds of Survival: </strong>3 to 1. The future is female!<br />  </p> <p><em style="letter-spacing: 0.39px;"><a href="https://www.dcuniverse.com/news/whos-who-james-gunns-suicide-squad/" target="_blank">A version of this

We’ve been away for a few weeks because, to be honest, we’ve been in mourning. DC FanDome: Hall of Heroes and DC FanDome: Explore the Multiverse showed us the most fun we’ve had in a long time, but the <a href="/videos/gotham-knights-world-premiere-trailer" target="_blank"><em>Gotham Knights </em>trailer</a> from Warner Bros. Games Montréal also brought the news that our dearest Batman had passed away.</p> <p>So, if you’re keeping track, Rocksteady has the Suicide Squad attempting to kill the Justice League in their 2022 release, and Warner Bros. Games Montréal has us trying to protect a Gotham City that’s without its Batman in 2021!</p> <p style="text-align: center;"><iframe allow="accelerometer; autoplay; clipboard-write; encrypted-media; gyroscope; picture-in-picture" allowfullscreen="" frameborder="0" height="315" src="https://www.youtube-nocookie.com/embed/IhVf_3TeTQE" width="560"></iframe></p> <p>Be still our beating hearts.</p> <p>But you know what? Batman wouldn’t want us moping around in the wake of his death. He’d want us out there fighting for justice and protecting the innocent! And that’s exactly what the premise is behind <em>Gotham Knights</em>—now we can join Gotham’s new guard of heroes by taking on the mantles of Nightwing, Batgirl, Red Hood and Robin as they seek to unravel the mystery surrounding Batman’s death and expose the sinister forces at play in the shadows of this daunting cityscape.</p> <p>With that in mind, let’s take a look at some of the major <em>Gotham Knights</em> learnings coming out of DC FanDome and make sure we’re ready to “Step into the Knight” come 2021!</p> <p style="text-align: center;"><img alt="" src="/sites/default/files/imce/2020/09-SEP/Merc_NW_Website_Reveal_900_5f616210d7db67.57903033.jpg" style="width: 900px; height: 506px;" /></p> <h2><strong>Gotham City is Alive in this Open World</strong></h2> <p>Batman’s death aside, one of the most compelling aspects of the game is the ability to engage with a “living, breathing Gotham City” as Warner Bros. Games Montréal’s Patrick Redding and Fleur Marty described it. That’s because this is a full-on open-world action RPG, or, in other words, an expansive landscape that you can traverse at your own pace to discover the secrets that await.</p> <p>You’ll have the ability to visit five distinct boroughs, battle street-level crime as it’s unfolding, and come face-to-face with some iconic super-villains like Mr. Freeze who are also trying to make sense of their place in Gotham now that Batman is gone. Simply put, Gotham City is its own character in the game, and, the more you immerse yourself in it, the better chance you’ll have at preventing its descent into chaos.</p> <p style="text-align: center;"><img alt="" src="/sites/default/files/imce/2020/09-SEP/Merc_BG_Website_Reveal_900_5f6162350f66f5.84219111.jpg" style="width: 900px; height: 506px;" /></p> <h2><strong>Batman is Gone, But His Legacy is Not</strong></h2> <p>Speaking of characters, let’s talk about our protagonists! It’s clear that a great deal of thought and care went into selecting who the playable heroes were going to be, each of them with intensely strong emotional ties to Batman himself.</p> <p>First up we have Nightwing, also known as Dick Grayson. The original Robin, Dick has always been an amazing foil to Batman’s stoic personality with his charismatic disposition and flair for acrobatic dramatics. With his leadership and dynamic fighting style (don’t ever forget his dual Escrima sticks!), it’s easy to imagine him having a major role to play in a Batman-less world.</p> <p>Next up is Barbara Gordon/Batgirl, a tech wiz and martial arts master who’s as much of a threat to criminals from behind the control hub in the Belfry as she is when she goes toe-to-toe with them on the streets. Unfortunately, the trailer tells us that her father Jim Gordon has also passed away, which gives us a sense that our new heroes will really have to take it upon themselves to clean up Gotham without any support from the GCPD. But, if anyone’s up to the task, it’s certainly Barbara, whose willpower and determination allowed her to overcome a devastating injury that left her confined to a wheelchair (but not for long).</p> <p style="text-align: center;"><img alt="" src="/sites/default/files/imce/2020/09-SEP/Merc_RH_Website_Reveal_900_5f616255c33062.11784931.jpg" style="width: 900px; height: 506px;" /></p> <p>Our third of the four playable characters is none other than the formidable force of nature who goes by the moniker of Red Hood. Also known as Jason Todd, he was killed while serving as Robin (Dick’s successor) but was then resurrected through mysterious means and took on a fiery personality more like that of an antihero. He’s trained without rest to reach the peak of human strength and has armed himself with an arsenal of weapons that’ll have any criminal running scared.</p> <p>Last but most certainly not least is the youngest of the Batman Family—Robin (Tim Drake). Batman was a role model to Tim, and he steadfastly believes in the mission/legacy Bruce left behind. Helping Tim keep that legacy alive is an unparalleled intellect as well as a knack for stealth in combat, making him a dual threat who can beat you with his quarterstaff or with his own brand of psychological warfare.</p> <p>With unforgettable heroes like these ones at your disposal, the hardest part about the game may just be figuring out whose mantle you want to take on! But, if you’re anything like us, you’ll toggle between all of them as the storyline unfolds because picking your favorite member of the Batman Family is just cruel. In fact, all you need to do whenever you’d like to step into someone else’s shoes is return to the Belfry and select whoever that may be.</p> <p>And lastly, don’t forget about the online co-op! After you’ve chosen one of the four characters above, you’ll have the ability to team up with a friend online for a two-player experience. We even got a preview of what this could potentially look like in the <a href="/videos/gotham-knights-official-gameplay-walkthrough" target="_blank">gameplay walkthrough</a> that was shown during DC FanDome.</p> <p style="text-align: center;"><img alt="" src="/sites/default/files/imce/2020/09-SEP/Merc_RB_Website_Reveal_900_5f61626e6e4ae9.72886361.jpg" style="width: 900px; height: 506px;" /></p> <h2><strong>Batman Day and 2021, Here we Come!</strong></h2> <p>Sadly, that’s where our information ends for now.

Following the defeat of Mr. Nobody, the heroes found themselves mini-sized and stranded on Cliff’s toy race car track. They began to deal with their feelings of betrayal by <strong>Niles Caulder aka The Chief (Timothy Dalton)</strong>, while confronting their own personal baggage.

height: 150px;" /></a></p> <p>It’s been nearly 25 years since I first stepped behind the microphone to voice Superman.</p> <p>And honestly, it never gets old.</p> <p>Since that first episode of <em><a href="/tv/superman-the-animated-series-1996-2000" target="_blank">Superman: The Animated Series,</a></em> I knew it was a special role. I'm a little bit of an idealist, as is Superman—though he's a bit more pure. Superman is all about saying that good can win, always earnestly trying to do the right thing, and that goodness can be the order of the day. He really <em>IS</em> truth, justice and the American way.</p> <p>The acting trick to playing Superman is to read what he’s supposed to say, and then I say it as truthfully and straightforward as I possibly can. It's always more fun to play villains because there's a lot more latitude, but it's way more difficult to play the good guy—especially someone as squeaky clean and All-American as Superman. You really have to commit to his ideals, his mission. It's surprisingly difficult to do.</p> <p style="text-align: center;"><img alt="" src="/sites/default/files/imce/2020/09-SEP/Tim%20Daly%20recording%2010-22-10_5f598604961020.58758749.jpeg" style="width: 700px; height: 1050px;" /></p> <p>The great part of voicing Superman is that you really can’t be Superman without also being Clark Kent. And I love Clark, especially when he’s being coy or funny or self-deprecating. We’ve gone down this road in culture today where so many of our heroes are portrayed through a dark, dystopic view of the world. Batman is more realistic in terms of the human psyche because he's a little more tortured—he's darker, more cynical and more street savvy. But Superman represents light and goodness; he has an ethical core that is rock solid. And God knows we need that now. If I were Superman, I’d make a lot of changes today.</p> <p>Voice acting is an anonymous job. It’s the character that matters most. But there are those fans to whom the actor means something—and, in particular, that the actor takes the responsibility of the role seriously. The fans helped to instill in me a profound sense of that stewardship of the character. Superman is more than a Super Hero—he’s a symbol of the good in all of us.</p> <p>When I get to reprise the role, I realize how much I’ve missed him. Plus, Superman scripts offer a genuine, organic opportunity to give a little reflection of the world, and some subtle social commentary that can be very bold in its approach to our country and our world.</p> <p>That was part of the inspiration for our Creative Coalition contribution to DC FanDome. Years ago, I did a staged a radio play of <em>It Happened One Night</em> for the Sundance Theater Lab, and it was really fun. In the current world situation, it dawned on me that, if you can’t do it live, Zoom is the perfect vehicle for that sort of performance. So I called my old friend, Warner Bros. TV honcho Peter Roth, and asked if we could have some of the old Superman radio plays to recreate the same sort of event for DC FanDome. The deck was slightly stacked in my favor—Peter is a really good man who likes to support worthwhile activities, and he’s a huge Superman fan. Peter got behind it and, voila, we have a terrific, playful 1940s-style radio play with fun, shameless overacting by an outstanding lineup of actors and a terrific foley artist filling in the gaps.</p> <p style="text-align: center;"><img alt="" src="/sites/default/files/imce/2020/09-SEP/Square_750x750_SupermanRadio_5f59865bcea362.94210882.jpg" style="letter-spacing: 0.39px; width: 750px; height: 750px;" /></p> <p>One of the real plusses for a radio play, much like animation, is that there are no boundaries for casting. And this is a complete bouillabaisse—Alfre Woodard plays Perry White, Daniel Dae Kim and Wilson Cruz share the Superman role with me—and everyone is wonderful. You can’t go wrong with actors like Henry Winkler, CCH Pounder, Giancarlo Esposito, Tony Shalhoub, Constance Zimmer, young stars like Sean Giambrone, and so many more. Plus, the two Anthonys—Anthony Rapp and Anthony Carrigan—steal the show at times with their hilarious portrayals of these two thugs. There’s a lot of flavor in this cast.</p> <p>It also gives us a chance to shine a light on The Creative Coalition. One of the cornerstones of America is that we are creative thinkers. We're innovators. And in order to continue to be innovators, we need to train the creative minds of our children. The Creative Coalition is a non-profit, non-partisan arts advocacy group. It's made up of people who have attained a high level of visibility in the entertainment world, and we have two essential missions.</p> <p>Our core mission is to promote federal funding for arts and public education and freedom of speech. The other is that we use, in a responsible way, our notoriety to focus attention on issues of public importance that affect everyone, issues that otherwise might have a little more difficulty getting the attention they deserve. I personally became involved because I believe that it is vital to the survival of our culture to have arts be part of the public school curriculum. I could spew tons of boring data—but the bottom line is that when you're teaching a child, you have to teach the entire child. Kids that study the arts are better mathematicians and scientists and politicians…and actors. They're not just better artists.</p> <p style="text-align: center;"><img alt="" src="/sites/default/files/imce/2020/09-SEP/fullres-00208185_5f5987c62ad147.26710589.jpg" style="width: 700px; height: 949px;" /></p> <p>There are those who think the arts are a luxury, that they’re unnecessary—but look around and you’ll clearly see their importance in the world today. Arts and entertainment keep us alive, makes us laugh, give us unique and varied perspectives, and provide a lot of hope. We need to tell each other stories, to give ourselves a direct reflection of our culture, of today’s world, and who we are. It is a basic human need. That’s where The Creative Coalition rises.</p> <p>I hope you’ll check out <a href="https://schedule.dcfandome.com/e/5f343a57ad87080017244a20" target="_blank">the Superman Radio Show at DC FanDome</a> this Saturday. It was fun to do, and I’d love to do more with Superman. If you get the chance, let Bruce Timm know that. Whatever Bruce wants, even 25 years later, I’m more than ready to play along.<br />  </p> <p><em>Tim Daly patented the All-American trust within the voice of the title character for the landmark </em>Superman: The Animated Series<em>, as well as for several animated films over the past quarter of a century.
