Cars with super powers and costumes. Why didn't Disney horn in on this a long time ago. Ridiculous concept, but I'm betting it'll be better than Moon Knight.
So should I state the obvious? Robin. It's Robin.
Pixar's Cars meets Batman.
Holy Hubcaps! Cartoonito is revving up for Batwheels, announcing today the DC Super-Villain voice cast lineup. Gina Rodriguez (Jane the Virgin) as Catwoman, Xolo Mariduea (Cobra Kai) as Snowy the Snowcrawler, and Tom Kenny (Spongebob Squarepants) as Crash, lead the talented cast voicing some of Batmans most iconic adversaries in the upcoming preschool action-adventure animated comedy.
The villains will go bumper-to-bumper against the heroes of Batwheels voiced by the previously announced cast led by Ethan Hawke (as Batman), Jacob Bertrand (as Bam the Batmobile), and AJ Hudson (as Duke Thomas/Robin). Produced by Warner Bros. Animation, the series will race onto Cartoonito on HBO Max and Cartoon Network this fall.
The evil counterpart to the heroic Batwheels, the Legion of Zoom is a team of sentient vehicles brought to computerized life by Badcomputer, the new ultimate computer of the DC Universe. They, like the Batwheels, are essentially kids with little to no life experience. However, unlike the Batwheels, The Zooms are under Badcomputers malevolent guidance and often dont make the best decisions. Prank, the Jokermobile, and the rest of the villainous squad wreak havoc on Gotham City alongside The Joker, Catwoman, Harley Quinn, and more of the Caped Crusaders infamous rogues gallery.
The complete DC Super-Villain voice cast lineup includes:
The Legion of ZoomGriffin Burns (The Addams Family 2) as PrankThe Jokers favorite ride, Prank is tricked out with all manner of pernicious pranks confetti cannons, a joy buzzer, and the like. Prank is often more interested in having a good laugh at someones expense than carrying out a plan.Alexandra Novelle as Jetstah Harley Quinns souped-up ATV, Jetstah displays all of the same obnoxious irreverence as her owner, along with an even bigger, badder giant mallet! Jetstah is full of tricks and loves to mock and tease the Batwheels as they chase her through the streets of Gotham City.Josey Montana McCoy (Genshin Impact) as Quizz Like his owner, The Riddlers helicopter loves to befuddle the Batwheels with riddles, but unlike The Riddlers, his riddles dont always make sense. Quizz has the ability to skywrite them, broadcast them, and even drop parachuted riddle leaflets from above. As the youngest of the Zooms, Quizz is prone to throwing tantrums, especially when no one can figure out his riddles, even when theyre sooooooo obvious!Ariyan Kassam (Great Pretender) as Ducky The Penguins vehicle is an amphibious duck boat. Ducky can travel on land or sea, and is equipped with an array of sneaky surprises like umbrella shields and a squid-ink sprayer. He is a bit of a snob like his owner, and doesnt always get along with the rest of the Zooms.Xolo Mariduea (Cobri Kai) as Snowy Mr. Freezes snowcrawler is armed with snow blowers and icicle missiles that can freeze opponents in their tracks. But due to his big, clumsy treads, Snowy is the slowest of the Zooms, often lagging behind and becoming the object of derision. Because of the way hes treated by his teammates, he sometimes thinks about swapping sides and joining the Batwheels, though he would never admit that to the other Zooms.SungWon Cho as Badcomputer Badcomputer will not rest until he reigns supreme as the most advance computer intelligence in Gotham Citya title threatened by the hyper-advanced Batcomputer. As a being of refined intellect, Badcomputer holds little patience for the humbling antics of the Legion of Zoom, but fueled by his unrelenting jealousy of Batcomputers impressive hardware, hell have to settle for the tools he has at his disposal. Its hard to get good help these daysTom Kenny (Spongebob Squarepants) as Crash Badcomputers robotic minion, Crash is a begrudgingly obedient test dummy tasked with assisting Badcomputers evil schemes. Despite being constantly blown to bits (often accompanied by his signature snark and quick wit), Crash is a powerful adversary who can hold his own against the Batwheels.
The Rogues GalleryGina Rodriguez (Jane the Virgin) as Catwoman The sneakiest of our Super-Villains, Catwoman loves to utilize her stealth and cunning to get her claws on the shiniest of trinkets and baubles Gotham City has to offer. Though she prefers to work alone, Catwoman is no stranger to playing both sidesgood or badin order toget what she wants.Mick Wingert (What If?) as The JokerThe ultimate prankster, all The Joker wants is to make everyone laughNo matter how far he needs to go! The Joker revels in pushing Batmans buttons, and if it means he can sneak off with a few bundles of cash from the bank in the process, even better! The Joker rarely takes anything seriously, but nothing makes his blood boil quite like getting burned by Batman.Chandni Parekh (Big Nate) as Harley QuinnHarley Quinn is the hyper kid on the block with no boundaries. Shes all about fun all the timeand whats more fun than dunking on Batman? Nothing! Harleys got a penchant for fast-paced heists and daredevil antics. Watch out for that mallet!SungWon Cho as The RiddlerThe Riddler would probably be respected for his quick wit and clever mind if he werent such a nagging know-it-all! Hes a super-nerd that thinks hes the smartest person in Gotham City, and hes on a personal mission to make everyone know it.Jess Harnell (Animaniacs) as Penguin A villain with a bottomless appetite for more, more, more! Penguin is the spoiled man-child of the bunch, always wanting to have the biggest, most ambitious schemes and heists. But with his mega-inflated ego, Penguin is also prone to throwng mega-tantrums when things dont go his way. Hell stop at nothing to get things his wayeven if it means throwing his fellow Super-Villains under the bus.Regi Davis (Mindhunter) as Mr. Freeze A grouch and a grinch, Mr. Freeze is the ultimate downer who always seems to wake up on the wrong side of the bed. Just about everything (especially fun, ugh!) annoys his peevish popsicleso he sees it as his personal mission to ice over Gotham City to make things nice and quiet. You dont want to end up on the wrong side of his ice cannon (of his signature ice-based puns).James Arnold Taylor (Star Wars: The Clone Wars & Rebels) as ToymanToyman loves nothing but playing with the latest and greatest toysthe only problem is, his idea of toys increasingly seems to encompass volatile high-technology. All he wants to do is play in peace, but that pesky Batman keeps ruining his playdates. He might be a bit of a choking hazard for the Caped Crusader.
