Bruce Timm Says There's A BATGIRL Mini-Arc Before THE KILLING JOKE Begins
When developing their animated adaptation of Batman: The Killing Joke, executive producer Bruce Timm stated that they had two options - pad out the Alan Moore's storyline or craft a short introduction to Batgirl before the events of The Killing Joke begins.  

According to Timm, it would have been a bit sacrilegious to tamper with the source material so he, director Sam Liu and the rest of the creative team chose the latter option.  "We thought if we were going to expand this to feature length, we didn’t want to just pad out the original story by putting in a bunch of stuff between sequences of the story, because it’s literally a whole other half of movie that we could add. So we took that opportunity to basically tell a Batgirl story, which we don’t often get a chance to do these days. And it was great, because we could spend more time with her as a character and get to understand what she’s all about and how she’s similar to Batman in some ways, and really different in others. They come at the crime fighting thing from two completely different places. The good side of that is we get to spend more time with her and learn that she’s an interesting character. We get to really like her. The bad side of that is that we get to like her so much that when The Killing Joke part of the story happens, it’s, like, 'Oh, no!', because we really like her. So it’s a double-edged sword."

With Timm discussing how the film starts and the focus on building up Batgirl before the elements of The Killing Joke start to bring her back down, it will be interesting to see if the film sticks with the original ending for the graphic novel or whether Timm and co. tack on an original epilogue in addition to the prologue?

'Justice League Dark' Heads Towards Animation
The live-action Justice League Dark movie might be on the back burner after Guillermo del Toro's departure as director, but DC Entertainment's supernatural superhero team will get their own movie nonetheless — as a direct-to-DVD animated release.

The existence of the animated Justice League Dark was revealed by the British Board of Film Classification, which stated that the upcoming Batman: The Killing Joke animated home release will contain a bonus feature titled "A Sneak Peak at Justice League Dark." Such features are a regular occurrence on DC's animated releases, acting as announcement and teaser for the next release from the animation studio.

Del Toro's live-action JLD — also known as Dark Universe — was first mentioned in 2013 as a project that would team John Constantine, Swamp Thing, Zatanna and other supernatural characters in DC's portfolio against an unknown threat. Last year, the Pacific Rim director said that he may not be involved beyond scripting, however: "It all depends on the calendar, you know?" he explained.

Justice League Dark launched as a comic book property in 2011, featuring a number of DC's supernatural and horror characters — including the Enchantress, who appears in August's Suicide Squad movie — coming together under the leadership of John Constantine, Madame Xanadu and Zatanna to deal with threats that regular superheroes didn't even know existed. The series was cancelled last year ahead of an announced relaunch under the title Dark Universe which has yet to appear.

More details on the project will likely accompany the animated Batman: The Killing Joke, which will be released digitally July 23, ahead of a Blu-ray and DVD release Aug. 2.

Mark Hamill may have been in London for all things Star Wars during the “Star Wars Celebration,” but that didn’t stop him from indulging his Bat-fans. While Hamill was in attendance for his role in Star Wars: Episode VIII, he unfortunately will not be attending San Diego Comic-Con for his involvement in Sam Liu’s Batman: The Killing Joke. Perhaps keeping that in mind, Hamill carved out some time to talk about the highly anticipated, R-rated, animated adaptation of the acclaimed graphic novel.

In a clip from his panel “An Hour with Mark Hamill” (via CBM), the man behind the voice of the Joker (from Batman: The Animated Series and the upcoming feature film) gave the audience a treat when he read a short monologue as the Clown Prince of Crime. It was a thrilling little bonus surprise for attendees, one punctuated with the Joker’s signature laugh, as has been made infamous by Hamill himself.

I watched it last night and I liked it. The animation could have been better, they could have updated it slightly. It looked really bad at times, it's ok when it's in the comics but when it's animation, you have to improve it slightly. Barbara looked great though. It's only noticeable with Batman. I'd say it looked better towards the end or maybe it was just me.

And without spoiling it, something happens with Barbara that confused the hell out of me. I will elaborate once you guys have seen it as well. This is something that never happened in the comics. I didn't like it.

As for the ending, I always thought it ended one way but it's done differently here.

Sounds like the panel didn't go so well.

Batman: The Killing Joke I The R-rated, animated adaptation of the landmark graphic novel became mired in controversy when the team added a backstory featuring a sexual relationship between Batman and Batgirl. Following the world premiere, the audience Q&A portion became contentious, at one point devolving into a shouting match between creators and fans and seeing screenwriter Brian Azzarello call a fan who questioned the sex scene a "pussy." The subsequent news coverage focused on the controversy, rather than Mark Hamill's well received performance as The Joker, which added layers of humanity to the character never before portrayed on screen.

Bruce Timm added the relationship between Bruce and Barb in previous animated projects. I think it's implied in The New Batman Adventures and touched on even more in Batman Beyond: Return of the Joker. I don't hate it, I've never thought of Barbara as a surrogate daughter the way most of the Robins have been a surrogate (or actual) son.

KILLING JOKE Debuted With An Impressive $3.1 Million Yesterday Evening
The demand for Batman: The Killing Joke was so high that Warner Bros. decided to give it a limited two day theatrical run, and it seems that's paid off in a big way for them. Box Office Mojo reports that the animated feature earned a solid $3.175 million yesterday, a figure which isn't all that far behind what many wide releases earn during their Thursday night showings. This figure obviously doesn't take into account viewings from today or overseas, so it will be very interesting to see exactly how high it goes. 

Debuting in 1325 theaters, you have to believe that the success of Batman: The Killing Joke could very well lead to us seeing more of these animated DC Comics adaptations on the big screen. Who know, their days of being direct to home video movies could be nearing an end after impressive performance.

We'll just have to wait and see, but that controversy about Batman and Batgirl certainly doesn't seem to have hurt the movie that much despite some people getting seriously worked up about the whole situation.

That's true. I just wish it played out differently. Never have I once seen them two hook up, it really was a father-daughter/mentor thing to my eyes. They added the Batgirl story just to make it longer. I would have preferred new scenes towards the end that expands on that final confrontation. It's still a good movie, wasn't better than Under the Red Hood though.

Young Justice Writer Says Season 3 on Netflix Could Happen, But You Have to Keep Watching


Of all the shows Netflix could revive for another season, Young Justice season 3 is a definite option. DC’s animated show about a team of teen superheroes premiered in 2010 and got the axe in 2013. The streaming service released the first two seasons on its platform, while hope for a potential season 3 pickup has been kept alive. Amid new rumors that it’s now a done deal, original writer Peter David took to his personal blog to clear things up.

A few days ago, a Reddit user posted about a conversation with David at Connecticut’s TerrificCon Comic-Con. The writer allegedly told the fan that he had a meeting with Netflix about Young Justice season 3. Since then, David took to Twitter to confirm he was misquoted, but he’s keeping fan hopes alive.

He stated that series creator Greg Weisman said that “Netflix is seriously considering ordering a third season because they’re impressed with how much people are watching it.” However, it’s far from a sure thing.

That’s what I’ve been saying for the past month, countless times, ever since I had lunch with Greg before San Diego. Seems pretty straightforward.

And suddenly I’ve been getting barraged with tweets and emails from fans asking me if it’s true that I’ve had a meeting with Netflix about writing the third season. Why? Because someone asked me the question at the recent Terrificon in Connecticut and, rather than report the answer I’ve given at least a hundred times, he instead provided his own version. I’ve no doubt it was an innocent mistake, but it’s caused a MAJOR headache for me.

Furthermore I’m now worried it could do damage to the cause, because people might think, “We did it! There’s gonna be a third season, done deal!” and then stop watching. Which would then cause Netflix to say, “Hunh, people have stopped watching, guess it was just a passing fad,” and that’s that.
So I will say it once more: It is NOT a done deal. So continue watching Young Justice if you want to have a hope of a third season.

Young Justice featured a strike team made up of sidekicks — Robin, Aqualad, Kid Flash, Miss Martian, Superboy, and Artemis — that executed covert missions for the Justice League. Other members, like Zatanna, were added, but the time jump in season 2 saw them grown up with a number of additional forces, including Blue Beetle, Batgirl, Wonder Girl, and Beast Boy.

Given Netflix’s array of kid-friendly humor, including Voltron: Legendary Defender, Young Justice season 3 would fit right in. Just keep watching, folks!

Hamill And Conroy Tease HUSH And A DEATH IN THE FAMILY Animated Films

Are Batman: Hush and A Death in the Family set to be included in the next slate of DC Animated films? That's certainly what Mark Hamill and Kevin Conroy seemingly indicated to the audience during their Canada 2016 Fan Expo panel.  

During the fan Q&A portion of the event, someone asked what titles were currently in development at Warner Bros. Animation's direct-to-video DC film department, which led Conroy to turn and ask Hamill, "What do you think about Hush?" Naturally, this produced some 'oohs and ahhs' from the audience.  However, the crowd went absolutely wild when Hamill then followed up and asked Conroy, "Well, what do you think about A Death in the Family?"  Are Conroy and Hamill having a lark with their fans or are animated adaptations of  Jeph Loeb's Hush and Jim Starlin's A Death in the Family really in the works?

At this past SDCC, the next slate of DC Animated films were announced and revealed to consist of Justice League Dark, Teen Titans: The Judas Contract and an original Bruce Timm feature titled Batman and Harley Quinn.  Could Hush and Death in the Family be slated for release in the next cycle of DC Animated DTV features?

Young Justice - Season 3

Post by UltimateMarvel on 11/7/2016, 9:16 pm

It’s Official! Young Justice Season 3 is on the Way!


Warner Bros. has just confirmed plans for Young Justice Season 3!

Fans demanded it and today Warner Bros. Animation is pleased to confirm, Young Justice Season 3 is on the way! The studio has begun production on a third season that will bring all-new episodes of the acclaimed hit series, based on the characters from DC Entertainment. You can check out the Young Justice Season 3 teaser poster in the gallery viewer below.

In Young Justice, the teenage Super Heroes of the DC Universe come of age in a world of super powers, Super-Villains and super secrets. Used strategically as the secret covert weapon of the Justice League, Nightwing, Robin, Aqualad, Kid Flash, Superboy, Miss Martian and a host of others strive to prove to their legendary mentors, as well as to themselves, that they have what it takes to be heroes.

Heralded by Entertainment Weekly as one of the “9 Best Animated TV Series Drawn from Comics,” Young Justice has been equally praised by critics and viewers for its impressive visuals and rich storytelling. The series reached more than 25 million unique viewers in each of its two seasons on Cartoon Network.

“The affection that fans have had for ‘Young Justice,’ and their rallying cry for more episodes, has always resonated with us,” said Sam Register, President, Warner Bros. Animation and Warner Digital Series. “We are excited to bring the show back for this loyal fanbase and to provide an opportunity for new viewers to discover this excellent series.”

Producers Brandon Vietti (Batman: Under the Red Hood, Superman: Doomsday) and Greg Weisman (Star Wars Rebels, Gargoyles) will be returning for Young Justice Season 3.

Further details about Young Justice Season 3 — including premiere date and network partner — will be announced at a later time.

Saw Justice League Dark last night and it was pretty good. These animation movies are always good. It was nice to see Constantine showing his full skills. I wish we saw more of that in the cancelled NBC show. Matt Ryan is a great Constantine though whether it's on TV or animated movie. If they ever make this into a film, he should play the character. Especially if it's rated R, I can only imagine what that would be like.

I was surprised to find out that Jeremy Davies who played the same character in the TV show also voiced him in this. I recognized him immediately by his voice. That was cool!

This movie also made me realize that I want to see more of Zatana in the future animated movies, DCEU or TV shows. She's incredibly powerful and a character that needs to be acknowledged more.

R rated animated movies is really nice, it started out pretty dark right away with all the killings. I hope we get more R ratings in the future animated movies.

DC Digital Service To Launch With ‘Titans’ Series From Berlanti & Goldsman And ‘Young Justice: Outsiders’
Warner Bros is making a big move in digital with one of its flagship brands. Warner Bros and DC Entertainment are behind a new, DC-branded service that will debut in 2018 with two high-profile comic book-themed original TV series: the live-action Titans, from the king of the CW DC universe Greg Berlanti, Akiva Goldsman, Geoff Johns, Sarah Schechter and Warner Bros TV, and the anticipated revival of cult animated series Young Justice, from Warner Bros Animation. It will be titled Young Justice: Outsiders.

The DC-branded direct-to-consumer digital platform, in the works for the past several months, marks the second major new service launched by Warner Bros Digital Networks — the division started last year with the mandate of building WB-owned digital and OTT video services — following the recently introduced animation-driven Boomerang. The DC-branded platform is expected to offer more than a traditional OTT service; it is designed as an immersive experience with fan interaction and will encompass comics as well as TV series.

Titans, written by Goldsman (Star Trek: Discovery, Underground), DC Entertainment president & chief creative officer Johns (The Flash, Arrow) and Berlanti (Arrow, DC’s Legends Of Tomorrow, The Flash, Supergirl), explores one of the most popular comic book teams ever. It follows a group of young soon-to-be superheroes recruited from every corner of the DC Universe. In the action-adventure series, Dick Grayson emerges from the shadows to become the leader of a fearless band of new heroes that includes Starfire, Raven and others.

Goldsman, Johns and Berlanti Prods’ Berlanti and Schechter (Arrow, DC’s Legends Of Tomorrow, The Flash, Supergirl) executive produce Titans, from Weed Road Pictures and Berlanti Productions in association with Warner Bros Television.

A live-action Titans was originally ordered as a pilot by Warner Bros TV sibling TNT in 2014, with Goldsman writing the adaptation alongside Marc Haimes. The regime change at TNT put the project in limbo, and it ultimately did not go forward.

WBTV and DC then brought Titans under the purview of Berlanti, who oversees all four DC/WBTV superhero drama series on the CW as well as the CW Seed DC animated series Constantine. Berlanti teamed for what is a new take on the Titans characters with Goldsman and Johns, who also co-wrote The Flash pilot with Berlanti and Andrew Kreisberg. There was stong interest in the project from outside, including from an SVOD provider, but Warner Bros opted to make the show a cornerstone of the new DC digital service.

In Young Justice: Outsiders, the teenage superheroes of the DC Universe come of age in an animated world of superpowers, super villains and super secrets. In the new season, the team faces its greatest challenge as it takes on meta-human trafficking and the terrifying threat it creates for a society caught in the crossfire of a genetic arms race spanning the globe and the galaxy.

Sam Register (Teen Titans Go!) is executive producing. The show’s creators Brandon Vietti and Greg Weisman are producers; with the series’ Phil Bourassa also returning to serve as art director.

Praised by critics and DC fans for its impressive visuals and rich storytelling, Young Justice aired for two seasons on Cartoon Network, from 2010-2013, before it was cancelled, triggering a crowdfunding effort to bring it back. The series won a primetime Emmy for Individual Achievement in Animation for Bousassa for the “Independence Day” episode in 2011.

Following months of speculation, Warner Bros Animation last November announced it has begun  production on a third season of all-new episodes. At the time there was no network, with the series testing the marketplace, and was rumored as a possibility for Netflix, which carries the existing two seasons of Young Justice. But Warner Bros decided to run Young Justice: Outsiders on the new DC platform.

Titans marks the first live-action series in the digital space for DC Entertainment, which has seven broadcast series on the air, Supergirl, Arrow, Flash, DC’s Legends Of Tomorrow and iZombie on the CW, and Gotham and Lucifer on Fox.

The use of established titles with strong fan following like Titans and Young Justice to jump-start the new DC-branded service is reminiscent of CBS’ bet on a new Star Trek series and a Good Wife spinoff, The Good Fight, for its CBS All Access as new platforms often rely on built-in awareness and name recognition to stand out in the competitive digital space.

Batman: Mask of the Phantasm is being released on Blu-ray in July by Warner Archive. The bad thing about that is you can only get it online (which is how most of us shop anyway) and no new features. The good news is though Warner Archive is Manufactured on Demand, their Blu-rays are actually pressed, not burned. WA also has a great reputation on their transfers and they did a new scan and we get both the widescreen theatrical AR as well as the open matte home video AR. I'm pretty damn psyched. I'm not sure if I've ever been as excited by a BD announcement.
