  • 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.

  • June 24, 2021: Interview with Tim Sheridan. 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 coin, 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.
