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.

  • May 7, 2019: Five new DC Showcase shorts will release over 2019-2020. They will feature Sgt. Rock, Death, Phantom Stranger, Adam Strange, and Batman: Death In The Family. Still of Rock included. 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. All five new DC Showcase shorts include Jim Krieg as co-producer, Amy McKenna as producer, and Sam Register as executive producer. WF Article

In preparation for breaking the story with Ernie Altbacker and Jim Krieg, he re-read Phantom Stranger comics and happened to notice the first issue of the second series was published in 1969. 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

  • December 21, 2021: Interview with Elizabeth Gillies. Gillies was always a fan of Michelle Pfeiffer's take on Catwoman, was drawn to the script because it explored a different side of Catwoman, wasn't aware of how stylized or anime-influenced it was until her second or third recording session but found it very cool, notes the noir film score, added "a little Mae West," used Pfeiffer as a jumping off point then put her own stamp on the voice, spends most of the movie poking and prodding Batwoman to try and get a rise out of her, in a 2 or 3 hour session the last hour would be just action cues, was offered the role around April 2020, and she already completed her work on it when the title was officially announced.

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.

  • November 27, 2020: There will be a virtual panel on December 6 at 5 pm on CCXP's website featuring Kelly Hu, Mark Dacascos, Michael Jai White, Jeremy Adams and Bruce Timm. Terra Verso Article
  • 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 24, 2020: Chris Palmer comments on the animation style. It definitely evokes the original Superman animated series, what Metropolis itself could be 25, 30 years in the future. The line art was to try something new and make a different world from the previous films and evoke more of a comic book kind of feel. CBR Article

  • 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.

  • August 26, 2021: Interview with Justin Halpern and Patrick Schumacker. The very first scene of season 3 will turn some heads; possibly a sexual situation and a big joke to open the beginning. Harley first telling Ivy she loves her was rewritten many times. Wanted to make sure Harley was saying every moment with her was the best moment ever and she felt complete. Season 3 is looking at an early 2022 release. In season 3, Harley will help Ivy focus on herself and we will learn more about each other now that they're a couple. Harley has bad habits from her toxic relationship with Joker. Ivy still has a hard time to completely always let people in when she's having a tough time. There is "big, crazy, fun stuff" in an episode they were convinced DC and HBO Max wouldn't let them do but they were okay with it. Lavender You Episode 6

  • 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

  • September 13, 2021: Ethan Hawke voices Batman, Jacob Bertrand as Bam, Jordan Reed as Redbird, Madigan Kacmar as Bibi, Noah Bentley as Buff, Lilimar as Batwing, Kimberly D. Brooks as the Batcomputer, Mick Wingert as Moe, AJ Hudson as Duke Thomas/Robin and Leah Lewis as Cassandra Cain/Batgirl. Bam is the Batmobile and leader of the Batwheels team, like his hero Batman, has a strong sense of justice and tries his best to lead the team, even though he's not always sure he's up for the task. Ultimately, the other Batwheels know they can count on him, both as a super teammate, and as a friend. Redbird is Robin's zippy sports car. "Red" is the kid brother of the team, always eager to prove himself a worthy sidekick to Bam but he can hold his own on a mission. He's enthusiastic and extremely inquisitive, asking tons of questions, like a kid detective. Bibi is Batgirl's brave and bold motorcycle is the fastest of the Batwheels, but also the smallest, so she sometimes has a habit of being impulsive and jumping right into the action without a plan. Buff the Bat-styled monster truck is the team's muscle and can ram through or run over any obstacle in his path, but he's also the heart of the team - a gentle giant who doesn't really know his own strength. Batwing is Batman's supersonic jet plane, "Wing" is easily the most sophisticated, and confident member of the team. The Batcomputer is the supervisor, dispatcher, and trainer of the team is also their mother figure. In addition to training and advising them, she must be there to comfort them and even hold their mechanical hands when needed. Moe is Batman's robot repairman who facilitates repairs and upkeep on his fleet of vehicles. He is well-equipped, highly efficient mechanic who can fix almost any vehicular glitch, but not without a healthy dose of sarcasm. Batman is Gotham City's greatest protector who keeps the streets safe from any and all threats. Even though Batman doesn't communicate directly with the Batwheels, he acts as a father figure. They absolutely seek his approval and trust while they fight alongside him. Duke Thomas/Robin is the Boy Wonder who loves sinking his teeth into a great detective mystery while he strives to prove himself alongside Batman. Cassandra Cain/Batgirl is the first Asian-American Batgirl as first introduced in the comics. Cassandra is the "big sister," tech-savvy daredevil of the Bat-Family. She loves ripping around the streets of Gotham City on her motorcycle and always wants to be in the center of the action. Group stills of the cast included.. Animation Magazine Article

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.
