Gotham City…a hell of a town. Or just a hell! A new drug is sweeping the streets, and it’s bringing with it some heavy-hitter superpowers that you’d have to be a lunatic to tackle on your own. Fortunately, the Bat-family is composed of nothing but lunatics. Note that this isn’t the Batwing you met last time we previewed the book, but Luke Fox, son of Gotham CEO Lucius Fox. No word if the current Batwing has inherited the soothing, dulcet tones of his father Morgan Freeman, or the “five-year-old pretending to be a tough adult” voice of his mentor Christan Bale.
Either way–count us aboard! And not just because the drug devastating Gotham’s families seems to be venom (or a variant thereof) — and where venom goes, Bane usually follows. Although again–this is is print, so we can’t say for sure if his voice is the Latin inflections of comic Bane or the gentleman boxer of Thomas Hardy. And hey–did you know Heath Ledger’s Joker was pretty much a Tom Waits impression? Man…voice work is like 90% of those movies, isn’t it? We’ll stick to the pretty pictures drawn here by Eduardo Pansica from a script by Justin Gray and Jimmy Palmiotti.
Remember that time we showed you a Batwing #15 EXCLUSIVE Preview! Those were good times, man…good times.
