  • July 15, 2015: 1 hour, 1 minute, 41 second/85.2 MB recording of San Diego Comic Con round table released. Paget Brewster is from 00:06-11:48, Tamara Taylor is from 11:48-20:46, Alan Burnett is from 20:46-32:00, Andrea Romano is from 32:00-39:39, Sam Liu is from 39:39-51:21, Bruce Timm is from 51:21-59:24, and C. Thomas Howell is from 59:24-1:03:56. Brewster talks about recording a year and a half ago with parts of the script, Lois doesn't like Superman, heroes are framed and Lois believes the heroes are evil. Taylor applauds Andrea Romano for walking her through record, only had storyboards, a year later she got to see animation and got to see Benjamin Bratt in action, sound effects were hard for her so Romano acted it out for her, Wonder Woman has some unresolved issues, and a flashback we discover what made her. Burnett talks about doing something new, always wanted to do a superhero who would kill in a fight, about 25 DC characters in this movie, heroes are nervy in the beginning and have too much a sense of themselves, by Wonder Woman's flashback you should be sympathetic, thought it would be an action thriller at first, thinks the government gave them the 'Justice League' as a name so the public would accept them more, and Tower of Justice is a Baxter Building type of Hall of Justice. Romano admits she wanted to work with Michael C. Hall for 10 years and offered him DC roles but he was always busy. Liu talks about working on a Bruce Timm project, heat vision happens when Superman reacts out of anger, and concerns with how to keep characters like Superman likeable. Timm confirms title is part of direct quote from Bride of Frankenstein, these aren't the superheroes the public immediately like, they're still learning to be the champions of the people, and he got the last word for the tie-in comics. Howell confirms, by mistake, his character is the villain. Geeks with Wives

Season 2 is still in its early phase and stories are being broken. There is a rough idea in place. There is a bit of a story arc that pays off at the end but each episode is stand alone.
