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.

Death In The Family will be a long-form animated short anchoring a compilation set releasing in late 2020. Each short opens with a new, live-action branding sequence with easter eggs. Sgt. Rock is executive produced and directed by Bruce Timm and a script by Louise Simonson & Walter Simonson and Tim Sheridan. Battle-weary Sgt. Rock thought he saw everything that World War II can dish out. But he is in for the surprise of his life when he is assigned to lead a company consisting of legendary monsters into battle against an unstoppable platoon of Nazi zombies. Voice cast is Karl Urban as Sgt. Rock, Keith Ferguson, William Salyers and Audrey Wasilewski. Adam Strange is produced and directed by Butch Lukic, story by Lukic, and written by J.M. DeMatteis. On a rugged asteroid mining colony, few of the toiling workers are aware that their town drunk was ever anything but an interplanetary derelict. But when the miners open a fissure into the home of a horde of deadly alien insects, his true identity is exposed. He is space adventurer Adam Strange, whose heroic backstory is played out in flashbacks as he struggles to save the very people who have scorned him for so long. Voice cast is Charlie Weber as Adam Strange, Roger R. Cross, Kimberly Brooks, Ray Chase and Fred Tatasciore. Inspired by Neil Gaiman's "The Sandman," Death is produced and directed by Sam Liu and written by J.M. DeMatteis . Vincent, an artist with unresolved inner demons, meets a mysterious girl who helps him come to terms with his creative legacy... and eventual death. Voice cast includes Leonardo Nam as Vincent, Jamie Chung as Death, Darin De Paul, Keith Szarabajka and Kari Wahlgren. The Phantom Stranger is executive produced and directed by Bruce Timm and is written by Ernie Altbacker. Set in the 1970s, the short follows young adult Jess as she joins her friends at a party in a dilapidated mansion hosted by the mysterious Seth. When odd things begin to happen to Jess and her friends, the Phantom Stranger intervenes to save her from a dreary fate. Voice cast is Peter Serafinowicz as The Phantom Stranger, Michael Rosenbaum as Seth, Natalie Lander, Grey Griffin and Roger Craig Smith.

Everything clicked after that. Woodstock, The Manson Family, the Generation Gap, the first Led Zeppelin album, the first Alice Cooper album, Flower Power, the first issue of Vampirella, "Turn on, tune in, drop out" Psychedelics phrase, the first season of Scooby Doo, and the first season of The Brady Bunch got mashed up. At his first record, Peter Serafinowicz said, "So I'm gonna do this with my own accent, right?" and the British accent worked with Phantom Stranger. Michael Rosenbaum asked Timm want he wanted for the Seth character. Timm described Seth as a cross between Jimmy Page of Led Zeppelin and Jim Morrison of The Doors with David Cassidy's hair. Rosenbaum recalled Morrison's "I am the Lizard King - I can do anything..." Animesuperhero Bruce Timm post

  • 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.

  • 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

  • December 1, 2019: Interview with cast and crew. Jennifer Coyle talks about taking the "DNA" of the Amanda Conner and Jimmy Palmiotti version, using the New 52 and Mad Love as touchstones, and incorporating her pink and blue hair from the Suicide Squad run. Shane Glines talks about the mandate not to over-sexualize Harley's design so she went through the most design iterations and making sure her body language wasn't a doll pose. Justin Halpern says the 2016 pitch was like a female version of Ferris Bueller's Day Off with Harley as Ferris and Ivy as Cameron Frye. Rick and Morty and Arrested Development are also cited as comedic influences. There was little restrictions except after 22 F-bombs in the pilot, the studio put a cap of 8 to 9 per episode and the studio was protective of Batman. Coyle recalls a board the show executives nixed because it had Batman with a sign taped to his back with the effs bats joke. The crew was cognizant of violence so Harley only kills universally despised people like bankers and henchmen. There was an excised idea of Harley tearing off someone's head and hitting someone else with the spinal cord. Traditional heroes' color palettes were toned down, the clothing is more muted and their colors are a little bit darker. Gotham's colors pop a little brighter. All 26 episodes were delivered in 24 months. Work was done on multiple episodes simultaneously. Concept art of Harley and King Shark included. Animation Magazine Article

  • April 1, 2020: Season 2 picks up right where season 1 left off. Gotham is in shambles, sort of inspired by the "No Man's Land" comic book run, and the city has been divvied up by several of the high ranking members of Gotham's rogues' gallery. The season tracks Harley as she makes her way in this new post-apocalyptic world of these territories. Season 2 for Harley is, "What do I want now that I'm not living my life for someone else? What is it that I want?" Episode 2 is the first appearance of Barbara Gordon. The university she attends has been commandeered by the Riddler. She's kind of coping with living under lockdown with The Riddler as the dean of this university and her father, Jim Gordon, is her roommate - kind of against her will. He is spiraling towards his lowest points so, his misery along with the absence of Batman and because of her determination, she ends up becoming Batgirl. Catwoman is the only person in the world that Ivy melts over with admiration towards. The way she is portrayed is that she's just cooler than cool and Ivy gets uncharacteristically giddy when she's around her. Like she's just this icon, she's Ivy's Lady Gaga. Writer Sarah Peters helped forming this show's Catwoman. Harley and Ivy need to extricate a certain weapon, which is under lock and key, at the National History Museum, which has been booby trapped and they need someone who is experienced in being slippery around booby traps so Catwoman is a no-brainer. Jim Gordon even bristles with the fact that there's someone who's acting in Batman’s place. Batgirl and Jim become unwitting partners at one point in the show. He's oblivious to the fact that it's his own daughter. Eventually he gets wise to it. Overall, Barbara is part of his redemption arc. Harley and Ivy's relationship will have a label by the end of the season. Through the season, Harley and Kite Man’s relationship evolves. She begins to understand Kite Man more. There is a respect for him by the end of the season. Season 2 shakes up the crew by the end of it. Bane gets more screentime this season. Episode 22 overall of the series is the Themyscira episode. It's a girl trip to Themyscira with Harley, Ivy, Catwoman, and a couple of other spoilerly friends that has huge ramifications on Harley and Ivy's relationship, while also having a musical number that has been in the works for a very long time that is very ridiculous.

  • April 3, 2020: Interview with Schumacker, Halpern, and Lorey. Mr. Freeze, his origin story and his cryogenically frozen wife will be "disrupted" in a comedic way? The Mr. Freeze episode is about Harley becoming a little bit more woke and getting used to learning more about someone before passing judgment. She thinks Mr. Freeze is a straight-up villain, but he's ultimately a sympathetic character yet handles his trauma in unproductive ways, turning his anger and angst into crime. It's a weird episode but oddly really touching. Nora Fries will be introduced in a way that we haven't before and will be voiced by someone. Still included for episode 2. EW Article

  • May 10, 2020: Review of episode 5 with Schumacker. Mr. Freeze's hideout was a nod to Halpern and Schumacker's dead pilot for CW that involved a Chuck-E-Cheese-like locale. The post team really helped fix up the coloring and stuff for Harley's mindscape. Peter Girardi pitched the sky to look like gray matter of a brain but it wasn't working. One of the memories Harley originally stumbled upon was the implication she dressed up as Batman before sex with Joker and Warner was unsure of it so Halpern and Schumacker ended up swapping in a scene of Harley's father being beaten up by the mob. The Married with Children-esque family portrait was re-purposed from episode 10. Wordballoon YouTube

  • May 17, 2020: Analysis of Season 1 Ep. 8-10 with Patrick Schumacker. Their original take on Aquaman was a macho surfer type not unlike Jason Momoa, some recording was done, and then they got a note back asking if he was too asinine.They looked back and decided to go with the regal Fraiser approach. The Legion of Doom headquarters was based on high end ad firms. Schumacker even worked in some and his parents are in the marketing industry. Justin Halpern did the screeches for Sy's sister but was later replaced by Phil LaMarr. Halpern also does Man Bat's screeches. Aquaman's dolphin Juba is named after a stuffed animal owned by Schumacker's daughter. The still shots of the various acts of terror in the LOD initiation video were supposed to be inspired by classic comic book covers. In an upcoming season 2 episode, they considered doing a recap in the style of William Dozier on Batman '66 but decided it should be Frank the Plant doing the monologue. wordballoon Podcast
  • May 23, 2020: By the end of season 2, it will be clear where Poison Ivy stands. Patrick Schumacker Tweet
  • May 24, 2020: Analysis of Season Ep. 11-13 with Patrick Schumacker. In episode 11, Clayface ruining Riddler's video threat was inspired by Pee-Wee's over eager movie cameo in Pee-Wee's Big Adventure. Music during reveal of the super toxin was inspired by Breaking Bad. The sequence rewritten the most out of the whole series was the journey into Ivy's mind, it was confusing and jammed with strange metaphors so it evolved over time to confront a Big Bad in the Empire Strikes Back homage. Frank wasn't the Cheshire Cat at first. Originally when Kite Man is incinerated – it is revealed to be Scarecrow but it came off as a muddled image so Death was adopted as a universal symbol. Once the initial animation came back, they decided to reiterate what the sequence looked like to make it scary and add in more VFX like the moving eyeballs, blood from the trees, and the flames from Death. Child Ivy coming back green from overseas animation was a happy accident. The inspiration for the highway was Hot Wheels meets Mario Kart and was the first time a heavy amount of CG was used because of all the angles of the scene. About 90 percent of what was boarded remained for the highway scene. They had to be careful around Sy's transformation for legal reasons not to look like a Transformer. Schumacker may have offended Jefferson Friedman once by bashing Baroque music, which happened to be Friedman's focus in school. Kite Man came up in development because another male villain with 'weak powers' was needed as an example of why men with less skills than women get a lot more credit and support. Once Matt Oberg came aboard to voice Kite Man and more of season 1 was plotted, Kite became a favorite of the crew. War of Jokes and Riddles coming out inspired Schumacker to suggest using Kite Man. In episode 12, Schumacker asked if drool from Ivy and Kite Man making out could be removed. Queen of Fables was really killed off and isn't returning in season 2. Felt safe in offing Ivy in the penultimate episode of season 1. Consciously borrowed the Supergirl death pose from Crisis on Infinite Earths throughout the series up to the end of season 2. The Legion of Doom wasn't killed off, they were off on vacation already. One of the blue sky ideas during development was a team up between Harley and Batman and was used in the finale. Halo jump sequence in a later Mission Impossible movie inspired Batman's drop in the Joker Tower. The montage music is a riff on Goodfellas. One of the writer's long wait for a Tesla inspired Joker's complaint. wordballoon Podcast

  • June 15, 2020: Zoom interview with Patrick Schumacker and Justin Halpern. The Frank recap was born out of necessity because the cut of the episode came in short so they thought of doing an unorthodox recap. Early into breaking season 2, Dr. Psycho's coup was planned. Darkseid was thought of immediately when they thought of how Harley would go the extreme. A mandate on the show was not to resolve things neat and clean. Scripts were written between November 2017 and February 2019. In the season 2 finale, the characters will make the decision they feel is best for themselves. The question of will the Joker-Bethany relationship survive is answered in finale as well. Justina Machado is Puerto Rican and Bethany's lines were written in Mexican Spanish so she had to retrofit the lines. Swearing in Puerto Rican was a loop hole to the show's swearing cap. They considered an episode about the Justice League in the fairy tale book, they didn't have their super powers because of the magic, things got dark like in Brothers Grimm's stories but they couldn't break the story and discarded the idea. Some things are wrapped up in episode 12, the larger emotional arc will conclude in episode 13, modeled after Breaking Bad's structure of resolving some things in the penultimate episode, there is no cliffhanger, and the 'ultimate couple' will be revealed.
