INTERVIEW: Gail Simone Guides 'Blockbuster Update' of Red Sonja, Vampirella and Dejah Thoris
“Southland” actor Anthony Ruivivar made his first trip to the world famous floating CBR Tiki Lounge at the 2013 Comic-Con International in San Diego to tell CBR’s Jonah Weiland about his journey from stereotyped actor to Bruce Wayne — and Batman — in Cartoon Network’s “Beware the Batman” animated series. Ruivivar talks about being the first non-white actor to play the role, his son’s reaction to dad becoming Batman, how he crafted his approach to the character — and why he thinks there are actually two different Bruce Wayne’s in addition to his vigilante alter ego as Batman. He also discusses the challenges of voice acting versus being on set, growing up with super hero cartoons and how he gets sucked in when watching them with his kids.
