Holy burning rubber, Batman!
Warner Bros. Animation’s upcoming action-adventure Batwheels series is adding more stars to the voice cast, rounding out the Rogues’ Gallery, aka classic Batman villains, and the nefarious Legion of Zoom, a team of sentient vehicles brought to computerized life by Badcomputer, the new ultimate computer of the DC Universe.
Gina Rodriguez, best known as the titular star of Jane the Virgin, and Cobra Kai star Xolo Maridueña are joining the cartoon ensemble — the first DC/Batman preschool animated series — along with SpongeBob SquarePants star Tom Kenny.
Rodriguez will play Catwoman, Maridueña will voice Mr. Freeze’s Snowy the Snowcrawler, and Kenny will play Crash, Badcomputer’s robotic minion.
The rogues and Legion of Zoom go bumper-to-bumper against the Batwheels heroes, made up of the previously announced Ethan Hawke (Batman), Jacob Bertrand (Bam the Batmobile) and AJ Hudson (Duke Thomas, aka Robin).
Additional rogues include Mick Wingert (the Joker), Chandni Parekh (Harley Quinn), Sungwon Cho (the Riddler), Jess Harnell (Penguin), Regi Davis (Mr. Freeze) and James Arnold Taylor (Toyman).
Beyond Maridueña and Kenny, the Legion of Zoom consists of Griffin Burns as Prank, the Joker’s favorite ride; Alexandra Novelle as Jetstah, Harley Quinn’s souped-up ATV; Josey Montana McCoy as Quizz, Riddler’s helicopter; Ariyan Kassam as Ducky, Penguin’s boat; and Sungwon Cho as Badcomputer.
Series creator Michael G. Stern (Doc McStuffins) and Sam Register (Teen Titans) serve as co-executive producers. Simon J. Smith (Penguins of Madagascar) is the supervising producer and Steven Fink of Bang Zoom Ltd. is the series producer.
