A Batman webtoon that’s popular depending on whom you ask is getting a chance at a live-action interpretation in the form of a web show.
IGN reports filmmakers Ismahawk are producing a living-color miniseries based on the lighthearted comic Batman: Wayne Family Adventures that reportedly broke records for DC.
A mini in three parts, the adaptation of Wayne Family Adventures premieres exclusively this month on Ismahawk’s YouTube channel.
The cast is as follows: Jonathan Bentley as Bruce Wayne, Yoshi Sudarso as Dick Grayson/Nightwing, Lisa Foiles as Barbara Gordon/Oracle, Tim Neff as Jason Todd/Red Hood, Peter Sudarso as Tim Drake/Red Robin, Meghan Camarena as Stephanie Brown/Spoiler, Gemma Nguyen as Cassandra Cain/Orphan, Carter Rockwood as Damien Wayne/Robin, Du-Shaunt ‘Fik-Shun’ Stegall as Duke Thomas/Signal, and Marcus Weiss as Alfred Pennyworth.
IGN provided some behind-the-scenes glimpses including an image of Tim Neff in costume as Red Hood and the full cast assembled in the halls of Wayne Manor.
Batman: Wayne Family Adventures is a collaboration between Webtoon and DC Comics that takes a comedic approach with Bruce and his sundry associates in the Bat-Family. Rather than fight crime, everybody quibbles over who gets the last piece of pie or whose turn it is with the gym equipment.
Free to read on Webtoon, it originally dropped on Batman Day, and a new episode is uploaded every Thursday with seven up currently.
Users received it fairly well, giving the comic a 9.71-star rating. 629.7K people have tuned in and the series started strong with 105,410 total views or favorites.
That number has declined steadily since and is down by almost half as of the Oct. 6th episode, “Vigilante Bingo,” which only drew 52,528 views/favorites.
Should that trend continue, it will look like we have another case of DC prematurely declaring a victory, though they have to count them when they find them.
