past DC Comics animated programs, including Kevin Conroy (Batman: The

Warner Premiere and DC Universe are giving us another direct-to-DVD
feature this September, the interesting thing about this one is that it
will bring back two familiar old talents.
Superman Batman: Public Enemies (though I personally prefer Batman
Superman), is going to be a feature based on a popular graphic novel
written by Jeph Loeb, famous for his work on Batman: The Long Halloween
graphic novel, and penciled by Ed McGuiness. It seems to me an odd
choice of source material to turn into an animated feature but that
doesn't mean that it isn't deserving of the honor, just that it isn't
something one would immediately think of. Anyways, the exciting thing
about this particular production is that Superman is going to be voiced
by none other than Tim Daly (the original voice actor behind the man of
steel from Superman: The Animated Series), and Batman is being voiced by
the one and only Kevin Conroy (the original voice actor from Batman: The
Animated Series who reprised his role for several Batman: TAS themed
features, Batman Beyond, the Justice League animated series and most
recently the straight-to-DVD feature Batman: Gotham Knight). It will be
great to hear these two great talents working together as iconic legends
Batman and Superman for the first time since the animated series
three-part crossover, The World's Finest.

If this feature sticks true to the Jeph Loeb, Ed Mcguiness graphic novel
that it is based on then I give it 5 stars, but for now they are just
