O'Mara on Voicing Batman in Justice League: War

TV Guide held an interview with Jason O'Mara who will start his character arc on The Good Wife, O'Mara opens up about doing the voice for Batman on Justice League: War. The actor stated that he found the voicing to be tricky at times since he tried to emulate Christian Bale's Batman from The Dark Knight Trilogy, see more below:


TV Guide: You're voicing Batman in the new animated movie, Justice League: War, that's coming out on DVD and Blu-ray, Feb. 4. How did you get into playing such an iconic character?


Jason O'Mara: It's really tricky. You've got to try to find your vision, but you also have to be prepared to collaborate with the people around you who frankly, probably know more. I went in wanting to be close to Christian Bale's Batman, but I quickly realized when people aren't seeing you, you can't just have a deep, dark growl for 90 minutes. You have to convey more emotion. So I ended up modulating my voice quite a bit. It's been a surprisingly enjoyable experience.


TV Guide: Growing up in Ireland, were you a Batman fan?


Jason O'Mara: Oh, yeah! I grew up on the Adam West Batman and that evolved into the Tim Burton Batman. Even though I didn't read that much DC and Marvel stuff, I was more 2000 AD and Judge Dredd, Batman has always been part of my pop culture consumption. [Laughs] Also this is DC's "New 52" Batman, so the movie is about the Justice League's origins. It's pretty cool.


Justice League: War will be coming out February 4th. You can read more of the interview by clicking here.
