Variety reports that the next Scooby-Doo series is set to premiere on Boomerang sometime in 2019!
And, as previously speculated and confirmed by Grey Griffin, it will indeed be a sort of reboot of The New Scooby-Doo Movies with each episode featuring guest stars.
The Variety piece reads: “Scooby-Doo and Guess Who?”: In the series from Warner Bros. Animation, the Mystery Inc. gang faces some of their toughest mysteries yet. To crack the cases, Fred, Daphne, Velma, Shaggy and Scooby-Doo will join forces with some of the biggest names in celebrity and pop culture — including NBA star Chris Paul; recording artists Halsey and Sia; Ricky Gervais, Kenan Thompson, Bill Nye, Neil deGrasse Tyson, Mark Hamill, and Steve Urkel (voiced by Jaleel White, reprising his iconic role), as well as characters like Wonder Woman, Batman, Sherlock Holmes, and The Flash. Chris Bailey (“Kim Possible”) serves as producer with Sam Register (“Teen Titans Go!”) as executive producer.
Personally, I’m super excited for this! I just hope they pick a good style for the models and animation. A couple of those guest stars are a bit surpising though (Ricky Gervais? Urkel?), but it does fit into the Scooby Movies/Team-Up vibe, so I’m not worried. Let us know what you think in the comments!
In this episode, the fellas are back with 3 of their 4 most touched on topics!
They start off talking about Batman and Ben Affleck seemingly being on his way out the door and who they would cast in his place, Doom brings some Dan Shamble, Zombie P.I. news, and then Fitz gets all aquiver about the new Rebels trailer.
Han Solo is discussed, the works of Mike Judge some how get thrown under the microscope, and then they also wonder why stuff isn’t always as good as it did was when it 1st aired.
All that and more in this lean mean talking machine!
Out on DVD (*grumbles* and digital) today from Warner Brothers, the DTV movie we have been waiting years for, Scooby-Doo & Batman The Brave And The Bold.
Gang, keep your eyes peeled, because in the next month or 2 we will be doing a very special episode of The Nerd Blitz Commentaries centered on this movie.
I can promise this is going to be a fun ep you won’t want to miss!
Run out and get your copy today so you can watch along when we do.
Please turn off your cellphones and join Doom & Fitz as they make their very 1st visit to the city of the Bat.
For our 9th commentary, we glide back to 1993 for the 1st theatrical animated Batman movie starring Kevin Conroy, Dana Delany, Mark Hamill, & Stacy Keach.
The fellers talk about the comparisons to Year One, how one of them may not be 100% in love with this movie, and some of the behind the scenes creative goings on that brought this movie to the world…if they remember them right.
You created a colorful, joyous, and intentionally silly version of Batman that was, for myself and many others, their first exposure to the character.
You helped open the door to comics and the world of superheroes for many generations of children.
You taught kids about the merits of honesty and doing good for the sake of doing good.
You were in many ways the Mister Rogers of Superheroes.
I was lucky enough to meet you a few short years ago. Your genuine love for your fans was evident to everyone even after all the decades of doing the convention grind. When it was my turn to interact with you for a few brief seconds I found that all I could really say was my name when you asked who I wanted the autograph made out to.
As you signed your name you said something that was probably the same thing you said to everyone in line but in that moment it was for me alone.
“To my friend Scott”, you said, in that Adam Westian way.
I’ll be honest, it was an amazing, unexpected feeling. With those 4 words you turned a cynical, jaded, middle-aged man back into a five year old kid.
I’m so sad that you’re gone, but so glad I got to have that experience and so thankful that my first Dark Knight was the Bright Knight.
