why is the gargoyles series not playing on tv eney more.
It is. Late at night on Disney XD.
1.When coming up with the theme song for spectacular spiderman, how many bands and how many versions of the song did you have to go through? Did you n Victor Cook have much input into selecting the ulimate song?
2.Do you know what Victor Cook is currently working on?
1. We listened to about seven or eight submissions. Four of those, including the Tender Box song you're all familiar with, we liked a lot and wanted to use on the DVDs, but couldn't afford to. And, yes, Vic & I picked the song, though of course we needed approval from a whole bunch of folks at Sony, Marvel and KidsWB. Fortunately, everyone agreed with our choice without reservation.
2. Yes. Scooby-Doo, plus he's guest directing episode 20 of Young Justice.
1. I've read various interviews where other producers at WBA talk about your office and a certain interesting tidbit. In a future rambling, could you please post a photo of your wall where you keep these Post-It notes on?
2. I always have extra love for an animated series with a well constructed timeline. What's the Young Justice animated series timeline currently up to in page count?
3. In "Independence Day Part One," Zatara asks the rest of the Justice League for help against Wotan. What was the correct spelling for the artifact Wotan was using to blot out the Sun (I thought I heard 'Amulet of Aktan')?
Thank you for taking the time to answer these questions and looking forward to seeing new episodes return in January.
1. There's no way for me to post photos on this website. Or if there is, I don't know how. But watch Brandon Vietti's blog. He was taking some pictures in here the other day.
2. Uh, let me check. Be right back.... It's currently 149 pages.
3. Amulet of Aten.
This my first time asking. I have many questions (mostly regarding Owen Burnett and Alexander Xanatos), but right now I'll just ask about Captain Marvel.
So, are Captain Marvel and Billy Batson separated personas or Billy mantains his 10 year-old mind when he becomes Captain Marvel? (I'm hoping for the latter, I think it'd make his interactions with YJ very interesting)
Thanks for the attention, and Good luck with the Gargoyles Comics
You'll have to wait and see...
Thanks for answering my first question about the timeline It was something that interested me due to your ardent stance on making Young Justice tight in continuity and grounded.
By the way, good on you addressing the gender "controversy." I sensed no fanboyisms in the pilot. I'm personally always assailed and bemused when someone, regardless of sex, ethnicity, orientation, etc. complains of "inequality." The true sexists and/or racists are the ones who always troll for "problems" like this and complain as such. Genuine equality requires no quotas in my mind. Anyway...
My next question is related to Roy Harper, formerly Speedy.
Despite his cantankerous fiery attitude toward Green Arrow about his rejection from inclusion in the Justice League and a real tour in the Watchtower, he seems like he would be the eldest of the sidekicks. Can you disclose any information about his age in relation to the other sidekicks?
Roy's 18. Aqualad's 16. Superboy & Miss Martian are biologically 16, though he's only 16 weeks, and she's 48 earth years old chronologically. Kid Flash & Artemis are 15. Robin is 13.
Why didn't Neal McDonough reprised his role as Green Arrow from that DC Showcase onto YJ? Was he unable to?
We felt Alan Tudyk was the right choice for the YJ version of GA. That's not meant as a slight to Neal, who did great work on the short. But we're very happy with Alan.
Hello again, another spec spidey question here.
In comics Tombstone had a connection to Robbie Robertson, making him more of one of Robbie's personal enemies. Is there a reason you decided to disregard that when making Tombstone the "Big Man". OR was it not omitted, and you just didn't have enough time to show anything concerning Robbie's relationship with Tombstone (or it didn't have enough impact on Peter/Spidey's life...yet)?
Also, we all know why you decided to get rid of Herman Schultz, but of all the people to be Shocker, why Montana of The Enforcers? Was there something that you saw in Montana that would plant him as a great match for the Shocker suit?
Also...if there is ANYTHING you want to give me for your discontinued plans for the future like "you would have liked this to happen" just spill it out... Just kidding...
Tombstone/Robbie would fall under the category of discontinued future plans, which I've pretty much decided there's no upside in me revealing.
As for Montana becoming Shocker, it just seemed to fit. Montana got away at the end of "Survival of the Fittest" and would be at loose ends without his Enforcer buddies. And he had a fun personality to inhabit the Shocker suit and gear. It worked for us.
I asked an unclear question a little back:

You've always (wisely) refused name one series you've worked with a favorite over another. It'd be like choosing which child you love best. But is there any instance of one work being a favorite instance of X and another of Y?
Uh... I'm not too clear on what you're asking....? Is it a chromosome thing?
Sorry. I meant that do you look at the various shows you worked on and when you think of one or the other does one particular aspect stand out as for you favorite example of getting that particular thing right, or conveying another thing the best as you've ever done it? Either in general terms like saying your favorite John Wayn western versus military flick. Or in a very specific terms like saying you think you really aced a concept- like a relationship or a philisophical concept or bravery or human foible etc.
Hey, there are a lot of great moments that I love (he says without modesty) in all the series I've produced. Even in the stuff where I was just a hired gun.
But the thing is... I mostly work in the same genre (i.e. super-heroes) nearly all the time. It's a bastard genre (he says with affection) that includes fantasy, science fiction, detective and mystery, thrillers, etc., plus -- at least the way we do it -- romance and comedy on top of the action and adventure. So it stays fun for me, fresh for me. But it doesn't lend itself to the western vs. military comparison you make above. All of them are all of it. So it's just about the execution. In general, there aren't any episodes of a show I've produced that I hate. Some work better than others. But for me it's mostly about the moments.
Is the whelmed running joke going to keep appearing?
Watch and see...
Man, you guys are impatient.
Should a storyteller be telling us stories we want/expect to hear, or are they allowed to tell us whatever story they want, regardless on if we like it or not?
Uh... I don't know that there are or even should be rules.
But as for me personally, I try to tell the stories I want to tell, the ones that I'd want to see - that way I maintain passion for the material. Then, of course, I desperately cross my fingers and hope that others also like the stories I'm telling.
Whether these are stories they wanted or expected, who knows? The audience isn't monolithic, so I'm not sure it's possible to give EVERYONE what they want or expect. But if a majority LIKE the stories, I figure I'm good.
