Power-Con 2013: ‘ThunderCats’ Reboot Creator Details The Second Season That Could Have Been
Urge … to smack … Warner Bros’ executives heads … . rising …
Initial Details For “The Best of Warner Bros. – DC Comics Collection” DVD Release
Only ONE episode, and absolutely no representation on the front cover.
why the fuck does WB hate GLTAS so much oh my god DX
But TT has two episodes, plus it’s currently getting a lot of attention with the new show and all.
Like…I wouldn’t be miffed if GLTAS got two episodes like all the other shows. But it only got one (which is tacked on at the very end), while some other shows got THREE. I don’t understand how that’s fair? And not to mention that this kind of shafting always seems to happen to GLTAS (anyone remember when WB/DC tweeted reminding people to “tune into DC Nation at 10:30am!”?) Maybe it wouldn’t be as big of a deal to me if it didn’t happen all the time.
I guess they could have just not included it all. You’re preaching to the choir here.
You know what I’m pleasantly surprised about?
They’re letting Krypto the Superdog and Legion of Super Heroes in on the celebration and absolutely nothing from the original Batman: TAS era (just “New Batman Adventures”-era episodes).
I’m just glad somebody remembers LoSH, which will never be on television ever again …
^Appreciation Post For These, & Many More, Great Animated TV Shows That Have, Since, Been Cancelled.^
The modern state of DC Animation on television, folks:
One’s in heavy rotation on Boomerang (Teen Titans).
Another is in edited form on Saturday mornings on The CW (Justice League Unlimited).
One is currently in permanent rerun mode on Cartoon Network until its replacement is ready to air (Green Lantern).
The rest aren’t seen anywhere else on American television at all. Warner Bros. Animation tend to act like The Batman never happened save for the sporadic airings of The Batman vs. Dracula. Heck, one episode of one of these shows (Batman: The Brave and the Bold’s The Mask of Matches Malone!) never aired stateside at all.
Meanwhile, Batman, Superman, and Batman Beyond air daily on The Hub, and that’s awesome.
Breaking News: James Tucker is the new Supervising Producer of all DC Animated projects effective immediately as the previous Supervising Producer, Bruce Timm (one of the architects of the DC Animated Universe alongside Alan Burnett, Paul Dini, and later Dwayne McDuffie), is stepping down to work on other projects.
Mr. Tiucker’s no wide-eyed newcomer to DC Comics animated media. He has worked on numerous titles. He directed five episodes of Static Shock (including the very first episode) as well as episodes of Batman Beyond (which gave him an Emmy) and Legion of Super Heroes, which he also produced. Other producing credits include Justice League/Justice League Unlimited and Batman: The Brave and the Bold.
Mr. Tucker is also the director and producer of the upcoming DC Animated film Superman Unbound.
I think DC Animation is in good hands for the foreseeable future.
… okay, I caught myself just then. Jamie Reyes has been around long enough to HAVE and CREATE an established mythos, and THAT is … awesome. Okay, back to what I was saying …
Project Rooftop showcased Dou’s interpretation of the Blue Beetle mythos as an animated series, and I have to say I want this. I want this series so much, and I wouldn’t doubt it being a successful series either, but DC would rather make another Batman series than take a chance on a series-length version of the first major mainstream comic book creation of the 21st century.
And they will too (Beware the Batman coming in 2013 to Cartoon Network).
I think DC Nation will be longer than one hour (it has to be) and they should put a shorts series ala the Super Adventures Hanna-Barbera right in the heart of the block. Creativity on full display. They have the talent, and they’re going to grow. I’d like to see something along the lines of a Blue Beetle animated project up there … particularly this interpretation.
