Sorry, forgot to include these questions in my previous post...
1. How old is Pieter Cross?
2. How old is Mattie Harcourt?
1. Peter Cross is 28.
2. Mattie Harcourt is 32.
1. How old is Perdita?
Thanks so much!
Perdita is ten in "Coldhearted".
Just getting into YJ. I love the romantic aspects of the show so don't ever feel you have to apologize for it to anyone. Like the Robin and Zatanna thing. Miss Martian and Superboy are okay. She's just a little too sugary for my linking and she was crushing from day one. Oh well they are kids so, understandable but I have a soft spot for Wally. I am really hoping if Donna Troy comes into this show she and Wally hook up. If it is Cassie...drama!lol.
Is Selina Kyle in this verse? I would so love to see her or Talia. I like when Batman falls for women he can't control or run from. Is he as bad as he generally is at relationships as he is in he comics and the other cartoon on this earth? He seems not too bad. Seems much lighter here.
Are Superman and Wonder Woman together? They seem to have a little something going on when I watched the pilot. It was very subtle but you could not miss it and must admit I liked it. Poor Superman, getting so much condemnation and I am sure he needs someone who understands the situation to give him a hug. Anyway thanks for the good job.
Talia al Ghul has appeared in the companion comic.
As for your other questions, they're all SPOILERS REQUESTS or ASKED AND ANSWERED.
But I'm glad you're liking the show!
* How old is Dudley?
* Is he Billy's uncle, or his guardian (or both?)
* What does/did he do for a living? I noticed a poster in Misplaced, he looks like some circus magician.
* Why didn't he have any lines in Misplaced? You had Corey Burton in the cast, after all
1. Dudley is 65 at the end of Season One.
2. He is Billy's legal guardian. They're not actually related by blood, but Billy calls him "Uncle Dudley". And Dudley certainly is avuncular.
3. He's had many jobs over the years. Now, he's eligible for Social Security. Plus he takes odd jobs, and is something of a scammer.
4. Well, we didn't think he NEEDED any lines, but this is a good question generally, and provides me the opportunity to explain how the system works - at least on our series.
All our actors - Corey included, of course - share a similar contract, with a favored nation clause. That means whatever deal one actor gets, if it's superior to what the other actors have, they ALL get it. That sounds great, but it has the reverse effect. It means the studio is NEVER willing to pay extra for anything or anyone, because if they do - then they have to match it for EVERY actor in the series, and that's just not budget-friendly.
So that means every actor - whether they're famous or a first-timer - gets the exact same deal.
And, per SAG (i.e. the Screen Actor's Guild), here's the deal:
*For a specific amount of money (that, NO, I will not state - so don't ask), we get an actor to play ONE character per episode.
*For no additional money, we can ask that actor to play a SECOND character in the same episode.
*For a SMALL additional fee, we can ask that actor to play a THIRD character in the same episode. (The budget allows for this small additional fee, so you'll often see us use one actor for three voices in a given episode.)
*But if we want a FOURTH character, we have to pay the actor from scratch. A full second payment.
So, it costs us no more or no less to hire ANOTHER actor to play that fourth character as it would to ask an actor already in the cast to play that fourth. And if we hire that other actor, we can get him or her to play a FIFTH character for free, and a SIXTH for that small additional fee. So there's no economic insentive to give one actor more than three roles.
Now, we're not above doing it when it's warranted. For example, if we needed Superboy, Superman, Zatara and Marvin White in one episode, I wouldn't hesitate to pay Nolan North two full payments to get them. BUT - and here's where your original Corey question comes in - if we could get away with Marvin appearing WITHOUT speaking, then that would save us some money, and it's a path we might take.
SO, with Corey, we NEEDED him to play Brain, James Gordon and Wizard. That's three voices. We didn't need Dudley to speak, so we saved some money there.
I love Young Justice. Though I always seem to miss the new episodes. It just about ruins my day when that happens. Just being able to watch it on T.V. makes me jittery with joy. Can't believe I'm gonna miss "Coldhearted". Maybe I'll catch it on Sunday. You've done good with The Universe. I can't wait for more!
Thanks! Hope you got to see it!
If Queen Bee is in the light is that how Sportsmaster knew about the Bialya mission?, if so why would they tell one of their servants?
1. Pretty much.
2. They wanted him to know.
Now does the team understand why Captain Marvel always hangs out at the cave? and please at least consider subtitles for when they cast spells?.
1. I suppose they do.
2. Why would we do that?
Does Artemis play any sports? And if so which ones?
She's really good at archery.
1. Does Batman have a love interest in Earth-16? (Not asking who 'cause that is probably a spoiler request...)
Just wanted to say that I love your show! Thank you for your time!
SPOILER REQUEST. NO COMMENT.
Two things i'd like to know
1. Since homefront have the others learned that Artemis shot that arrow at Amazo? and
2. Now that the team knows who Billy really is do any of them feel bad about tricking him in humanity?
1. I think at this point, pretty much everyone knows.
2. I suppose. It's kinda water under the bridge.
