Series News




News on DC Universe Direct to Video Movies, DC Animated Series, DC Animated Shortfrom Series and related topics will be posted as well as information on new releases of past series. In most cases a link will accompany each headline back to the original article. News on the DCAU originates from animation and comic book related news sites, personal staff forums, blogs, or comic book conventions. Fans beware, in some cases, false news does get spread among the Internet.

Need to find older news or update information? Check out the Archives. For shows, shorts or movies that are no longer in active production such as Young Justice, all of the news about it is only located in the Young Justice section and not this news page. Also to note, for this news page, on the 15th and end of each month, I do delete older news if it has been revealed. For instance, if a May 5 news item reveals a new voice actor and role and the episode he actor guest stars in airs on May 10 then I will delete it on May 15 and the news item will only be on the show's news page and not this main news page.

  • February 5, 2024: Interview with Kevin Riepl. For Part One, he reused his Wonder Woman theme from Justice Society: World War II, the Green Lantern theme from Green Lantern: Beware My Power, and his Constantine theme. Riepl confirms Constantine appeared in Part One. He went with a full orchestra to create longer melodies and longer themes. The Crisis theme is more of a super-hero theme. The Anti-Matter and Barry themes were very slow to create sense of a world being engulfed. There were 19 themes in Part One. Due to the story going back and forth, he wanted to use attach musical elements to in part help the audience. Barry's theme coincidentally molded into the beginning of the Crisis theme. The first two to three notes are the first three notes of Barry's theme, mainly starting with Barry's six-note motif then pedals on one note, and that eventually grows into the Crisis them then it blends in on one cue. It was accidental on Riepl's part. To highlight the lonliness of Barry's theme , he used really high harmonic strings in his melody especially in the scene with Spectre. Towards the end of Part One, he leaned into Supergirl's theme from Legion of SuperHeroes but he stayed away from individual themes for the ending to help convey the scope of the calamity going on.

  • April 25, 2024: Interview with Jim Krieg about Part 2. They already knew about the backstory in this movie when they were making Legion of Super-Heroes. Expanding more on just a Shadow Demon possessing Supergirl like in the comic was important because she has to be culpable and go through some bad stuff. Monitor is a just person, a scientist then this person comes along and affects him. He's like Galactus, beyond knowing, but eons ago he used to be a living person like us. His humanity/his emotions is/are reawakened in a sense. Krieg wanted to be put more Robins but Butch Lukic hates the Nightwing suits of that era and didn't want them in the the movie. Batman's thing is the Bat-Family are people he could care about if he could manage himself. There was a lot to strip a lot out in general. When it comes to Batman Beyond or others, sometimes they're just cameos. There is a lot to cover and a lot of pipe laying in Part 2. On a scale of 1-10, Part 3 is a 5 when it comes to being like the comic in that it has the shape and tone of the comic but is not scene for scene or action for action. There are surprises. They're not retelling same story in 1985 in 2024. -Why Charles is a psychopath, why his powers affect him, what his mania is and why he can't overcome it was important to explain. -The turning point learning it was a being, not a natural thing. There are things from all the past movies and shorts, lot of pieces of connective tissue that seemed like nothing then but now have meaning. Hall of Justice Podcast Episode 379

  • July 24, 2023: Comic-Con Q&A with Butch Lukic, Ernie Altbacker, Jim Krieg, Jeff Wamester, and Jeremy Adams. Lukic liked the Skartaris area the most. Design was the biggest challenge because they had to create four worlds instead of one like usual. Altbacker saw an animatic a year and a half ago. Krieg wanted to do something different involving a hologram world and amnesia. The worlds are meant to keep them from remembering themselves because are so far from who they are. Wamester was most excited with the Wonder Woman section because he grew up watching Westerns. The Superman section was the hardest, playing around with the angles to build up the story and frenzy. The three writers conceptually came up with the movie then took a section each. ThatsmyeTV YouTube
  • July 24, 2023: Comic-Con round table with Jim Krieg. Krieg and Butch Lukic wanted to use the DC Showcase shorts to tour the DC Universe but then no more were greenlit.

  • June 24, 2021: Interview with Tim Sheridan. He had a few months to prep before writing and got to meet with Jim Krieg and Butch Luckic and also with friends who were fans of the comic, the ending of part one as a resolution or cliffhanger, following the two sided coin, will learn more about the coin in Part Two and its history ties into the movies, Batman not being so infallible because he's still young and in year two, Catwoman's equipment line, setting up the family arc with how Halloween is like at the three houses, realizing scenes he added were homages to other Loeb-Sale stories, lift the Mickey chase from a flashback to a sequence, cutting the jail house switch with Harvey in a rubber mask was easy because the scene had to be truncated and overall felt the story needed Harvey to be injured in the explosion and not Gilda, getting to sit in on Josh Duhamel recording, Sheridan had no actor in mind for Harvey, on Jensen Ackles voicing Batman and Bruce, Naya Rivera giving Catwoman depth and dimension instead of a cliche femme fatale, and writing more Calendar Man.

  • December 6, 2020: A 70s story was always in the back of Bruce Timm's head. When he was a teenager, pop culture was martial arts movies like Bruce Lee and Blaxploitation like Shaft, Superfly, Jim Brown, Jim Kelly, and he wanted to do a mash up. A comic called Kung Fu Fighter that came out at the time was basically that. They decided early on not to do a straight up Batman movie and make it an ensemble piece and get to explore the others in the cast. Lady Shiva loses it when her sword is stolen. Richard Dragon's design was influenced by the cover of Dennis O'Neill's Kung Fu Fighters novel where he was depicted as Asian and more like Bruce Lee than the white man he became in the actual comics. The crew tried to be specific with fighting forms and poses for the characters. Jeremy Adams and Jim Krieg tried to hard to use a lot of 70s lingo. Timm added bits too like one of Ben Turner's line was 'I'm done!' and he expanded it to 'I'm done, baby!' as a nod to Richard Roundtree. They went through 20 composers and narrowed it to three. They didn't want the music to come off like a parody of the 70s. Joachim Horsley was chosen ultimately. Michael Jai White made sure Ben sounded like he was in the 70s and differentiate that from his modern take on Ben that he did on Arrow. The movie doesn't have much Batman and it was a conscious choice to see him more as Bruce Wayne. CCXP Day 3 Panel, 5:57:10-6:15:56 mark

  • December 30, 2020: Jamie Cheung voices Jade. Lady Shiva's sword was originally supposed to be the Soultaker but DC objected to Katana not being present. They explained there wasn't any room to add in Katana. DC persisted. Jeremy Adams looked up the Soultaker on the DC Wiki and learned it was one of two mystic swords forged at the same time but the other never did show up in the comics so take a cue from the Stormbringer and Mournblade from the Elric books, the Soulbreaker took the place of its sister sword, the Soultaker in the movie. DC still thought it would be really neat for Katana to appear but approved the change. AnimeSuperhero post

  • August 23, 2020: 45 minute recording of the IGN panel posted. Looked at Superman For All Season but didn't get anything then used American Alien for inspiration like the pre-Superman costume and Lobo then Tim Sheridan put his twist on it. Once they figured out when the story took place, they also looked at Birthright. Biggest directive from Lukic was to make the movie smaller in scale like the Richard Donner movies and see Superman rise from those kind of character interactions. It was meant to be more of an indie movie and more about character. The movie isn't an origin story more like Act 2. Themes explored include how the world affects Superman, identity, and truth to one's self. Sam Register told Butch Lukic to to something different so he went in an opposite direction of anime and used thick and thin lines like a comic. Chris Palmer convinced Lukic of using Flash and other things. Otto Schmidt's art style gave Lukic some confidence with animating this look but the overseas animation studio had problems at first so it was a style that adapted over time. Some points have broken lines like traditional hand drawn animation. Rudy Jones is an everyman you can sympathize with. Ike Amadi used his immigration from Nigeria to inform his take on Martian Manhunter. Three of the main characters are ones who are the last of their race. The cast was told to treat it like they were acting in live action. There is an easter egg in the scene when Martha gives Clark his costume. IGN YouTube

  • August 31, 2020: Interview with Butch Lukic. Decided to go in a different direction from the bulky Parasite designs and used Evangelion as a reference point. Otto Schmidt submitted four designs for Lobo: a straight hair, short hair, mohawk, and the classic look that winded up being chosen. Schmidt submitted five looks for Lois, including the leather jacket that was chosen and a nice business suit. Lukic decided to use a rejected look for Lois' casual appearance when she visits Clark at his apartment. A red haired Lex Luthor was considered and Schmidt did a rough form of it. Considered adapting from Man For All Seasons like the part when teenage Clark is arrested but it would have stretched the movie. Hall of Justice Podcast Episode 198
  • September 2, 2020: Interview with Butch Lukic and Tim Sheridan. The genesis of the story was a collaboration between Butch Lukic, Jim Krieg, and Tim Sheridan. They decided to try a Superman story but not exactly starting from the beginning. Instead Superman has been in Metropolis for about year trying to make his way in the world of journalism while trying to help people without revealing himself. The imagery of Calrk wearing goggles and a leather jacket was influenced from American Alien. Lukic went back and forth through email with Otto Schmidt on character design since he was new to animation. Jon Suzuki and Dusty Abell changed it so it was fit for animation. The French animation studio JSBC that worked on the Lastman cartoon was also an influence on design. How does Clark approach being an alien and how does he accept that and how is he accepted by the world are part of the story. As far as Lobo, the swearing and the sexism, appropriate or inappropriate is about as far as Lukic took it because the movie would be PG-13. He did self-censor when it came to swearing. Tim Sheridan wanted to subvert expectations and present Clark Kent at an emotional crossroads of trying to figure out if he should be truthful since Clark is someone who is always about truth and justice. During the writing, their first instinct wasn't to write it as an allegory for immigration nor did it drive the start of the process but there was no way around the topic for a Superman story with Lobo and Martian Manhunter in it. They wanted talk about what it means to be an outsider and to be looking at the rest of the world because it was much more basic and something universal that they thought everybody would be able to identify with.

  • October 6, 2017: Summary of panel. It includes more characters than seen in the original comic, many suspects who could be Jack the Ripper, not sure yet if rating will be PG-13 or R, at least one sequence that makes you squirm a little bit, not a direct adaptation of Mike Mignola's visual style but the crew took some visual cues the comics and fused that with their traditional animation styles, tried to get as much shadow as possible on Jack the Ripper, first clip has Batman attacking the criminal that's taken charge of the boys and made them pickpockets, and directs them to go to an orphanage and turn around their lives, there's a real emotional arc for Bruce, Selina is an actress/adventurer, and inspired by Sherlock Holmes character Irene Adler and is an equal to Bruce Wayne, they investigate the tragedy together, second clip shown is of Batman and Selina Kyle fighting Jack the Ripper in a slaughterhouse, Alan Burnett said he always wanted to set a scene in a slaughterhouse, movie isn't aiming for historical accuracy, crew are fans of the show Penny Dreadful, Sister Leslie (Thompkins) makes a strong presence in the movie, and the movie has DC Comics Easter eggs, Jack the Ripper Easter Eggs and Sherlock Holmes Easter eggs.

  • Janaury 17, 2023: Jeremy Adams leads a watch party on Twitter Spaces. Around the time of LEGO Aquaman, Rick Morales went to Adams about Super Sons and handed him a trade to read. They pushed for it ever since but theatrical was trying to do one but it never happened. Morales and Adams kept trying for years and talked about it at lunch when they worked on other movies. Morales was in a meeting for another movie and brought up Super Sons. Home Video checked. It was a go during that window when Warner Bros. and Discovery were merging. The movie was originally titled Super Sons, but due to legalities and such, it was renamed. Adams made Lois a little scatter-brained to hint at her wild times as a reporter. Jack Grazer recorded in his closet during the pandemic. The story was almost set during Christmas but Adams and Morales were working on a Christmas project at the time so it was changed to a birthday. There is a specific idea in mind for a sequel if it's greenlit. Adams originally pitched the movie as G-rated then they were told to make it PG-13 by Home Video. Adams was not happy. Jim Krieg told Jeremy "all we have to do is write an 80s PG movie" then things clicked for Adams. Adams wanted to use the cat being killed scene from the Tomasi run but no one else was up to doing it. They increased Jonathan to 10-12ish years old from 7 in the comics because 7 felt to adolescent for the stakes involved. Adams tried to write Damian somewhat likeable in terms of his logic like taking the wrong lessons from his father, i.e. knocks Jon over to activate more powers. It was purposeful nod to the Super Sons with the two pairs facing off. No one had any no idea Starro was in The Suicide Squad. Super Sons was written about a year before it. Adams had the original Teen Titans in mind. Executives were confused about Bat-Cow but Adams explained that was in the comics. There was a bit more about Batman using a passcode when he hails the Watchtower. They were only allowed so many assets in a CG movie at this level so it had to be strategic like with the Titans line-up, not because of personal preference. Krieg came up with Starros coming out of host's mouths around time when Adams was resisting PG-13. "Cunningham," the name of principal was a nod to a relative of Adams'. Adams loves DC/martial arts stuff so had to put in the two finger paralysis move. A "bend with your knees!" when the giant key is lifted was cut for time as well as Jon trying the giant key a couple times and failing. Adams emulatated Big Trouble in Little China with the in-and-out Watchtower set up. Lois Lane's lighter was kind of a nod to Margot Kidder's Lois being a chain smoker. One of first things pitched was Jon taking the arrow and discovering invulnerability. There was more cat-and-mouse between the hive mind and the boys. Originally, the movie was going to end it on the Watchtower landing on Earth. Twitter Spaces

  • April 30, 2019: Michelangelo atop the Tyrannosaurus Rex in the Batcave and riding a skateboard and bumping into Alfred will be in the movie. Batman will be a little more serious than the Turtles so that there's contrast and the Turtles to be a little more serious than they were the 80's cartoon. Andy Kuhn drew the preliminary designs for the movie with lead character designer Steven Choi coming in and making Kuhn's designs more animation friendly. There will be direct homages to the 1990 film such as the shot of Shredder when he first confronts the Turtles replicated exactly when he first appears in this movie and there will be references to the Turtles in Time Super NES video game. One of the mandates from Nickelodeon was not to use the existing actors from the then current TMNT animated series. Baron Vaughn was always Halpern-Graser and Jones' first choice. Gary Miereanu came up with the notion of Troy Baker voicing both Batman and Joker. There is a post credits scene that teases a possible sequel. Comics Beat Article

    Aztec Batman: Clash of Empires News

  • June 13, 2022: HBO Max Latin America, Warner Bros. Animation, Particular Crowd, Mexico's Anima and producer Chatrone have collaborated on a new movie called "Batman Azteca: Choque de Imperios" ("Aztec Batman: Clash of Empires"). The new project was announced Monday night at a cocktail event held at the 37th Guadalajara International Film Festival. The original, Spanish-language animated film places the iconic DC superhero against the backdrop of Aztec Mexico and immerses viewers in the enigmatic culture of Mesoamerica. The tale centers on a young Aztec boy, Yohualli Coatl, whose father, village leader Toltecatzin, is murdered by Spanish Conquistadors. Coatl flees to Tenochtitlan to warn King Moctezuma and his high priest, Yoka, of looming danger. Using the temple of Tzinacan, the bat god, as a lair, Yohualli trains with his mentor and assistant, Acatzin, developing equipment and weaponry to confront the Spaniard invasion, protect Moctezuma's temple, and avenge his father's death. Juan Meza-Leon is the director, Anima's Jose C. García de Letona and Fernando De Fuentes are producers alongside Chatrone's Aaron D. Berger and Carina Schulze. Sam Register and Tomás Yankelevich serve as executive producers. Alejandro Díaz Barriga, an expert on Mesoamerican studies and the ethnic history of Mexico and the Andean region, will work closely with the creative team to make certain that the indigenous representation portrayed in the film is appropriate and relevant.

  • September 4, 2023: Reportedly, other Batman mythos characters set to appear include Forest Ivy (Poison Ivy) and Jaguar Woman (Cat Woman). Meza-Leon said at Annecy, "She is the one who helps him embrace his spiritual animal and to become this warrior. The Aztecs only fought during the day, but she is a little thief in the night, the Robin Hood for the Aztec people. She is teaching him how to make his way around darkness and use it as a weapon."

Harbour's influenced Frankenstein's look changing from "mono-expressive" to more complex with a slightly softer silhouette. The Bride's design went from "Italo Pulp" to more punk to the more streamlined but vivid result. G.I. Robot looked like a trash can at one point then a more boxy '50s sci-robot.

  • October 12, 2021: Interview with Victor Courtright and Marly Halpern-Graser. It naturally fits into a three-part arc but each episode can be viewed as a standalone. The live action movie was used as a spring board for the story but is it's own continuity. Aquaman was living a pretty normal life then became king of Atlantis for the good of the people. Story board artists had fun with the townspeople. They made original characters like the bandits in the first chapter but also brought in classic villains. They didn't go in animating everyone being underwater like in the live action movie and 80 percent of the time boarded it like they were on land. They pitched a few things that didn't get used because something similar was being done in the live action movie's sequel. There's a lot of elements blended together in the architecture like classic Greek and Akira to get a sense of lived-in history. Animation Scoop Article
  • October 13, 2021: Interview with Victor Courtright and Marly Halpern-Graser. During work on Thundercats Roar, Courtright heard there was a potential Aquaman project being floated so he did some drawings of Aquaman and was asked to write up some concepts. He sat down with Halpern-Graser and wrote out some ideas in 2019. Two weeks into production, they had to shift to work-at-home because of the pandemic. James Wan and Atomic Monster saw, approved, and gave feedback on everything. It was important to make Aquaman the point-of-view relateable character to the audience. They pulled inspiration from old monster movies, old animation, and their experience on ThunderCats. Atlantis has both super science and magic, like with Mera. Comic Book Article

He was teamed up with Morgan Evans and development began. They aimed for something that felt like a Christmas storybook in terms of design and color palette. They then went with a sketchier line for the characters and backgrounds. There are nods to the 30's Batman, Batman '66, and the Bruce Timm era. Carmine Infantino is in the movie and they used his voice from old interviews. Batman is a helicopter dad. The world is seen through the lens of Damian so it's a little kid in a really big world. Art director Guillaume Fesquet did the preliminary sketches with help by Daby Zainab Faidhi. Two animation studioswere used, Gigglebug in Helsinki, Finland and Doghead Animation in Florence, Italy.

  • October 16, 2021: Video of J.J. Abrams, Matt Reeves, Bruce Timm, and James Tucker from Fandome. Tucker is a Co-Executive Producer. Will be like the original premise of Batman: The Animated Series but with less restrictions on adult content, adult themes, and violence. It's just Batman, there's no other heroes around, and he's alone. Will also use the notion of Bruce Wayne being the mask and Batman being Batman. Batman starts out low-tech but adds more gadgets and refines the Batmobile with prototypes. Will be about discovery. Season one is a psychological story about a man that needs to be redeemed. Before Batman and the police earn each other's trust. Don't know if Commissioner Gordon will or won't be Batman's ally. Nothing is assumed from what we expect as standard on a Batman series. Will take some villains and reconfigure yet keep them iconic. Timm used Strange Days short to pitch series. Show won't be in black and white but Tucker is keen on doing an episode in it. German expressionism and film noir will be leaned on more. Will be a 1940s timeless Gotham City and character designs but more modern with inclusivity and representation. WF YouTube

Brubaker notes the vision for the show has a slightly more pulpy take on the character and a new way of looking at Gotham, set in the past but viewed through a modern lens. The writers room has been ongoing for the last few months. Early development art of Batman revealed. THR Article
  • January 8, 2022: Ed Brubaker has been working on the series for several months, the virtual writing room has already wrapped, and they are nearing production. Brubaker reveals he had no intention of going back to working on superheroes but he was such a big fan of Batman: The Animated Series, he decided it sounded like too much fun to pass up on. The team met via Zoom for a couple months. The show is a complete reimagining of Batman, not a sequel to Batman: The Animated Series, takes place in a kind of timeless 1940s with no computers or cell phones, and is more adult at times but still something children can watch. Halley Gross is a writer and consulting producer, Sean Lee is a writers assistant, Jase Ricci is a Co-Executive Producer and writer, Julie Osborn is the line producer, Adamma Ebo is a writer and consulting producer, James Tucker is also a main designer, and Adanne Ebo is a writer and consulting prodicer.

  • May 31, 2022: Interview with Ed Brubaker. It has been around six months already. A month of writer room meetings 2 to 3 hours in mornings and afternoon then a couple days a week once outline and script work started. Talking about giving notes or giving it a quick polish then handing a script to Timm. Timm printed out the script PDF and wrote notes in red and doodled rough boards. The crew is currently working on the scripts for the last couple of episodes this season. The first voice recording will begin very soon and will be virtual. Bruce Timm and James Tucker have been casting the voices for the last couple of months. Brubaker reached out to Timm for freelancing opportunities and was surprised when he suggested the role of head writer on Caped Crusader but Brubaker still had to interview and Timm needed to jump through some hoops to land him the gig. It will be a PG show for a family audience but it will be slightly more adult than what was done before and very much a new take on Batman in the late 40's/early 50's era. They will be getting animation samples from studios vying for the job soon and that side of production will be full steam ahead in a couple of months. Timm, Tucker and "some other writer'' came up with the pitch for the show 2 to 3 years ago and they loosely followed that idea with Brubaker, ultimately building a ''new thing'' with them. It will remind fans a lot of Batman: The Animated Series but will also shock fans in the ways it is different. Greg Rucka is the writer of episode 2, which will be the first Renee Montoya episode. Brubaker wrote written episode 4, which is Gordon-centric and has ''Gotham Central'' moments focusing more on Jim Gordon and the police than Batman himself but the show is not overall inspired by that run of comics.

  • May 9, 2024: The series premiers on August 1 on Prime Video. The number one priority of Caped Crusader was to make sure it wasn't just a repeat of Batman: The Animated Series. It is '40s-set period piece. Harley Quinn will be Asian American and won't be a parter of Joker. Dr. Quinzel will be more whimsical and fun while Harley will be more serious and scary. Harley uses psychiatry as a weapon. As Dr. Quinzel, she stil is a normal Gotham City psychiatrist and is assigned to treat Bruce Wayne. Wayne is not obsessed with is parents' muder but it changeed him in a way where he's still not adjusted to being a human being. He's trying to pretend to be something that he's not. The idea was to keep Batman so removed that no one knows who he is and no on knows what he's about to remove any idea that he's a hero to Gotham or the viewers. Catwoman is based on her original '40s purple look. Barbara Stanwyck's performance as the title character in The Lady Eve was an inspiration for this Catwoman. Selina Kyle is playful and charming but underestimated at the peril of others. Catwoman's episode has moments that are really serious and dark with the juxtaposition of Catwoman's appearance. Clayface draws on the character's original comic book appearance and is inspired by classic horror movies. Stills included of Batman, Commissioner Gordon, Harley Quinn, Bruce Wayne, Catwoman, and Clayface. EW Article
  • May 9, 2024: All 10 episodes will be available on August 1. The official description: "Welcome to Gotham City, where the corrupt outnumber the good, criminals run rampant and law-abiding citizens live in a constant state of fear. Forged in the fire of tragedy, wealthy socialite Bruce Wayne becomes something both more and less than human—the Batman. His one-man crusade for justice attracts unexpected allies within the GCPD and City Hall, but his heroic actions spawn deadly, unforeseen ramifications." Batman is a "A cold, remorseless avenger of evil, seemingly more machine than man. Forged in the fire of tragedy, every fiber of his being is dedicated to the eradication of crime" while Bruce Wayne, "To the public at large, Bruce Wayne is a shallow dilettante, apparently wasting his parents’ vast fortune on frivolous pursuits and hedonistic pleasures. In fact, he's an elaborate facade, carefully constructed to divert attention from his activities as Batman." Selina Kyle/Catwoman: "Selena Kyle is a blithe and pampered heiress whose family lost their fortune after her father was imprisoned for embezzlement. Despite having the silver spoon yanked from her mouth, Selina refuses to quit living in the lap of luxury and becomes Catwoman as a "fun" way to maintain her lavish lifestyle." Dr. Harleen Quinzel/Harley Quinn: "Despite a personable and bubbly demeanor, Dr. Harleen Quinzel is a brilliant psychiatrist who treats some of Gotham's elite. However, as Harley Quinn, she is a different person, entirely. A creepy, quiet, calculating menace who secretly dispenses her twisted justice to the truly despicable among her elite clientele." Commissioner Jim Gordon is a "Former beat cop close to retirement, Gordon was hired to play along with the corrupt system and run out the clock till he can draw a pension. But they've sorely underestimated Jim Gordon. His unassailable character brings him into conflict with dirty cops and crooked politicians, alike. Not to mention, he has to reckon with a deranged vigilante beating up Gotham's criminals." Clayface is "Thanks to his "unique" facial features, screen actor Basil Karlo has been forever typecast as a B-movie heavy. Frustrated by the limitations his appearance put on both his career and personal life (he fell hopelessly in love with his co-star), Karlo turned to an experimental serum that promised to change his face. However, not only does this serum ultimately disfigure his face, but it ruptures the last of his sanity — creating the tragic, vengeance seeking villain, Clayface." THR Article

  • June 20, 2024: Jamie Chung voices Harley Quinn, Hamish Linklater voices Batman/Bruce Wayne, Christina Ricchi voices Catwoman, Diedrich Bader voices Harvey Dent/Two-Face. Timm wanted to do an emotionally messed-up version of Batman, who's extremely aloof and almost inhuman. Linklater was cast because of his take on Bruce. Bruce is a persona Batman has cultivated to throw people off his scent, Deep down he's not like Bruce, he's devoted to warring on crime 24/7. The show is not R-rated or especially violent or sexual like the Harley Quinn series. They are aiming for the same age group that watches Harry Potter or Marvel movies. There are murders to solve and the hero is damaged and self-destructive. Batman and Catwoman are more chemical than romantic in terms of their relationship. Batman is so closed off emotionally he makes Mr. Spock look like the life of the party. Catwoman throws him off and he becomes obsessed with catching her. She's flighty and a throwback to film noir era femme fatales with a bit of screwball comedy characters played by Carole Lombard. Harleen Quinzel is in a romantic relationship with Gotham City detective Renee Montoya. Montoya is a by-the-book honest cop and has no idea Quinzel is Harley Quinn. Montoya's integrity is the one thing that gives Harley Quinn pause about her actions but she doesn't see law enforcement as effective tools for feeling with wrongdoers. All the things the rich clientele of Gotham dump on Quinzel basically drove her crazy because of doctor-client privilege. Dent is a corrupt district attorney who uses his position to help rich criminals evade justice, gets his face disfigured, then starts to feel empathy for other people for the first time in his life but is still a bad guy lashing out for what he believes is a noble cause. The rest of the cast includes Minnie Driver, Eric Morgan Stuart, Michelle C. Bonilla, Krystal Joy Brown, John DiMaggio, Mckenna Grace, Jason Watkins, Paul Scheer, Reid Scott, Gary Anthony Williams, Dan Donohue, David Krumholtz, Haley Joel Osment, and Toby Stephens. Stills of Harley and Batman and Alfred and Batman included. Vanity Fair Article

  • June 26, 2024: Comments from Bruce Timm, James Tucker, and Hamish Linklater. Timm originally had an idea about Batman where he was much more inspired by pulp heroes like Doc Savage, The Shadow, and The Avenger. The common thread was they were all very remote, not nice guys, weren't people you'd like to hang out with, not cuddly and craking jokes. Making him remote on Caped Crusader placed a little more emphasis on the supporting cast so the shows does feel more like an ensemble piece. All secondary characters step up in importance in the story. Timm was approached to revive Batman: The Animated Series and pick up where The New Batman Adventures left off in 1999 but Timm wasn't interested. It was only when Tucker and Timm discussed the possibility of doing something new with the franchise did the latter warm up to the idea of helming another Batman cartoon. Making a show without the limitations there were in the 1990s like selling toys was also very exciting. They took influences from Universal horror movies and swashbuckler movies like the Errol Flynn movies. Batman's design was specifically inspired by his first couple appearances in the comics. Linklater was working on an indie movie in Minneapolis when he got the audition. He sat in a car in the freezing cold without the heat on so he could record audio cleanly. The Bruce Wayne facade will come off like he watched a million Cary Grant movies to study how to be a dashing, upper class playboy. While individual episodes will still tell relatively standalone stories, there will be certain narrative throughlines anchoring the ten-episode first season. There's certain plot threads that they called the "soap opera plots" that weave in and out of the first season. Dent's storyline is a big part of it. Barbara Gordon, her relationship with her dad and how she comes to end up being a reluctant ally of Batman, that weaves its way in trough the stories as well. Each episode is standalone but there is also kind of a season-long arc. The current plans are for there to not by any other costumed superheroes in the world at all. Production has already started on season two and Linklater is recording his lines. IGN Article
  • June 26, 2024: The Batmobile is a bit more like a real world roadster with the front end of a '37 Cord mashed with the back end of a '63 Corvette. For characters like Harley Quinn, they wanted to see if they could put a fresh spin on her that would be unique to the show while still retaining noticeable traces of her original DNA.

  • July 11, 2023: 48 minute, 6 second recording of Anime Expo panel. After Batman Ninja, Warner Bros. Japan was interesting in doing a series next. Warner Japan and Wit decided to go "super, over the top" and chose the Suicide Squad. Joker's original design was based on a type of anime character referred to as ikemen or basically the good lucking guy. Almost all the characters were hand drawn in 2D but some like the monsters were 3D CG. One challenge was deciding on shooting techniques and coloring techniques to show the contrast between Gotham City and Isekai. For the Isekai, got permission for DC characters to use magic and it will be unique to each. Warner Bros. Japan Anime YouTube

Deadshot is crass but is like a big brother. Almost the whole cast was present for the first voice recording. Jun Fukuyama kept improvising lines then everyone started improvising.

Peacemaker is the closest design to the original look. A message from Tomoyasu Hotei was played.

  • August 28, 2023: 63 minute interview with Josie Campbell. Campbell confirms Livewire is basically the first metahuman, credits the influence of John Byrne, how she outnerded the staff with her comic book knowledge, they always wanted to start small with Superman's powers and add more and more as they go to tie into the theme of him unlocking a power because he's trying to save someone, he has suppressed his powers for a long time after discovering he could fly and the ship activating, he is now accepting he can be extraordinary after trying to be normal, the blue surge is a nod to Superman Blue, from the start they didn't want Superman to understand Jor-El because it wouldn't make sense he would know English and create a disconnect with Clark's heritage and being the ultimate immigrant, at first the crew thought DC had Kryptonese fully developed but Mike Carlin informed them it wasn't so Campbell used a bit of Esperanto with something else like Hebrew, Korean, Spanish and changed the articles, they wrote the lines in English then in the final pass Campbell would do like a Mad Lib and switching out words to create enough dissonance for Clark and the audience, the various executives pitched to all loved Mallah and Brain, Campbell loved Grant Morrison's run on Mallah and Brain and talking gorillas and Olsen would be so Silver Age, thinks them meeting another weird outsider like Superman changed them, on thinking there's only one Mxyztplk in the multiverse but looks different on each universe and on this show he would look anime-inspired, the divergence of Vicki and Lois being the latter can't hurt people to get the article, there will be more mentions of Gotham but the show is about Superman, Lois and Jimmy, there wasn't any point where the Superman suit wasn't having the trunks but there was debate on when it would appear, Kris Anka's development art that everyone liked was one that looked Kryptonian and things Ma added on, credits Jessica Zammit for the Sailor Moon reference with Clark's transformation into Superman and Diana Hu referencing Pretty Cure, the evil Superman trope was to challenge Clark emotionally and to bring it as his greatest fear of what people see him as, designers and Clogher came up with the idea of exposure to Kryptonite to be anaphylactic shock meets Cordyceps fungus, cites the change in genders, ethnicities, and orientation to be reflect reality in the City of Tomorrow, Sari Cooper wrote a season 2 episode, no word on when season 2 airs, have future seasons figured out but not a third isn't confirmed, isn't sure if there will be a Blu-ray or other merchandise yet, Lois and Jimmy being in on Clark's secret identity early on was important during the pitches, show how smart Lois was, expand on the relationship, allow the characters to grow into a team, fed into the theme of secrets and lies, and having to do what feels right with shorter seasons and not knowing if there will be more seasons, and the bulletproof line in "My Adventures with Mad Science" was from the writer's room and was in the outline.

  • May 13, 2024: Interview with Josie Campbell. Season 2 will have more stuff about Clark's past popping up, Clark, Lois, and Jimmy are 1st year cub reporters, they try to settle in their new roles, there is some friction in their tight relationship especially Lois and Clark, new threats pop up, there will be more Task Force X and what was teased at the end of season 1 may appear, there will be new characters and new faces, more action, and more emphasis on the friendship and romance and what survives and what doesn't. The comic is the Christmas episode essentially, it is Clark's first Christmas in Metropolis without his family because they're still fixing up the farm, Jimmy and Lois try to make it a good Christmas for Clark, a piece of tech that looks like it's made by Ivo wreaks havoc, there twists and turns, begs the question of who the real villain is, where Ivo's tech went, who grabbed it, what else was in his lab, ends right before season 2 begins, is basically a fun, extra episode, and worked with Pablo M.

  • May 20, 2024: Interview with Josie Campbell. They approached Amazo the same way as approaching villains on the show with questions like "what do we best remember them for," "where we kind of change them a little bit and modernize them," "do we make sure we still retain the core essense of who that chaacter is," and "Or do we deepen the character in some specific way that makes us like them and see a whole new facet to them?" He is a runaway robot that looks like Parasite. Some Task Force X characters are appearing as well as new ones designed by Pablo M. Collar. Another big Superman villain is appearing. Maybe a little bit of Ma and Pa Kent. The intent is not to spoil anything for season two but make it feel complimentary. Some emotional beats in season 2 will make a bit more sense if one reads the comic such as how Lois goes from point A at the end of season 1 to point B at the start of season 2. A bit more backstory and background about Kryptonians revealed will enchance what is going on in season 2. Will get into the nitty gritty of Clark's emotional trauma and his relationship with Lois which will continue into season 2. Games Radar Article

Campbell wrote the episode where Kara is introduced as well as a bunch of other deep cut DC characters. Bloodsport appears in Issue #1. Kiana Madeira voices Kara.

  • May 23, 2024: -There's some twists in Kara's story and some twists of how the show is presenting her. Clark and Kara classically have different relationships to Krypton and that will be a lot of fun M. Willis, one of the writers, made Jor-El sassy and Jason Marnocha made his snarky, too. Krypton is more complex than Clark decided it was at the middle of season one and Brainiac is going to enlighten him a whole bunch about that. There's a way in which Clark and Lois get a look at another version of Superman but it's distinct from what they saw in season one and there is a look at other possible outcomes and other takes on Superman, but not in the way that was done in season one. Lois and Clark are going to have big turning points. There's kind of a Lois-centric episode. A lot of the back half is very Clark/Superman-centric. Jimmy is getting his moments to shine, especially in the middle of the season. The middle is the big turning point, though, from episode four, the story starts to turn, the characters start to get challenged in ways they weren't in season one. The challenge runs Jimmy, Lois, Clark and then back again! Season two is testing their bonds of love and friendship. Season two is fun and very emotional but it puts Clark, Lois, and Jimmy through the wringer in every way. It's not just physical challenges, but their emotional journeys and their emotional arcs are really at the forefront. Screenrant Article

  • June 10, 2024: Sari Cooper posts notes from "Two Lanes Diverged". The idea for the flashback came in January 2022 to build on the "wilderness survival weekend" mention in "Adventures with Mad Science", answer why she and Sam are estranged, how Lois came to be the way she is, and how that all influences her relationship with Clark. Sam purposefully loses Lois in the woods and she has to find her way out by herself but at first she doesn't know he left her on purpose. The third flashback is when she is 18. First flashback entailed mom abandoning her, second family abandonment, and third dad abandoning her. It's a pattern of abandonment, disappointment, self-suffiency, and not being taught to express emotion in a healthy way. It was meant to show Lois finally accepting her dad is never going to be there the way he was supposed to be, he had been hurting her all along, she couldn't pretend he was ever going to change, and she can only rely on herself.

  • June 18, 2024: The overall theme of season 2 is the cost of love: Lois' attempts to love and connect with Sam, Clark's need for love and family, and Jimmy falling in love. Campbell confirms the Bio-Electrical Aura was inspired by All-Star Superman and Brendan Clogher came up with the new take on the Freeze Breath. Supergirl as an antagonist was part of the show's original pitch. There is more to come with the Metallo robots. Jimmy becoming rich was a nod to a Silver Age comic where he was a millionaire one issue, the next wearing a bucket held up by suspenders. There will be more delving into Lois' feelings of inferioority and Clark's fear of rejection. Campbell laughs at a question about if we will see Superman using his abilities at an apex and hints to keep watching. Superman Homepage Article

The Thought Projector in "The Machine Who Would Be Empire" was inspired by the Tenchi Muyo anime. Kara's storyline was Brenda Clogher's idea and inspired by Vegeta from Dragon Ball. Mongol has been on the idea board for every season so far. Wyatt calls season 2 episode 9 the most challenging episode he wrote so far and hints they took a big swing with a lot of concepts while serving several different character arcs. Austin Reinkens is the new art director for season three. Reinkens is currently figuring out the literal character heights. The interior of the Fortress of Solitude will be seen. In the pilot, Leslie Willis' client was Bruno Mannheim but that was cut due to time. During most of season one recording, Alice Lee would flub and saw "Spider-Man" instead of "Superman" and crack up the team. The producers wanted Kara to be sort of like an Elseworlds or What If version of Superman: to examine the struggle of isolation from different set of circumstances. Wyatt's ideal run of the series is five or six season then ending on a movie. While Batman is off-limits, Brendan Clogher has a good pitch for him. The "kneel" line at the end of season one was intended to deliberately mislead the audience but in general for Brainiac, it's a power thing and his way of reversing the pecking order.
