Jensen lended his voice to the Red Hood Character in the movie.
“There really wasn’t any heavy acting choices to make,” says Ackles regarding Red Hood. “It pretty much just bounced off the page, and I just tried to do it justice. With working in this medium, once you get clear on all the specific pronunciations and how the tone of the voice needs to rise and fall, it was really about focusing on the more emotional elements of the script, especially in the intense moments and trying to envision the scene with the characters. And envisioning yourself in that scenario. A lot of times if you can do that, if you can put yourself there, I think the voice follows suit.”
Between his work on Supernatural and now the world of Batman, Ackles obviously has had some experience working in what has affectionately been called the “fan boy genre.”
“The positives of working in this genre are that the fans are extremely devoted,” he offers. “People really invest themselves in these stories and characters, and the mythology behind them. To be a part of something that so many people really get behind and want more of is extremely gratifying.”
“It’s simply the darkest Batman movie we’ve made yet, and that’s including Mask of the Phantasm and Return of the Joker,” offers producer Bruce Timm, who has been involved in Batman’s 2D world since the 1990s’ Batman: The Animated Series. “This is a really gritty, pretty darkly emotional story, and if it all comes together as I’m expecting it will, it’s going to be something really special.”
Years after the murder of his young protégé, Jason Todd, Batman and Nightwing find themselves being stalked by a mysterious yet familiar figure known as the Red Hood, who apparently knows all of their secrets. As the Dark Knight tries to unravel the true identity of his stalker, he must also battle his enemies; Joker, the criminally insane Clown Prince of Crime who murdered Jason, Ra's al Ghul, the immortal international terrorist who is somehow connected to the Red Hood, and Black Mask, the notorious kingpin who is launching a campaign to take over all of Gotham City's criminal underworld.
