Hello Mr. Greg Weisman,
I just read your ramble posting about John Wells, which was quite interesting. You said he was the one who provided research on the DC universe for you and all the other people who worked on the Young Justice TV series and comic books.
Research-wise, is the source material that he uses only comes from pre-"Flashpoint" DC Comics continuity, or does he also uses source material from The New 52 as well?
Thanks for taking the time to read this posting.
As I've stated AD NAUSEUM, we were all DONE before New 52 started. So his research came from before that. But that wasn't a policy decision or any kind of value judgement. New 52 simply didn't exist yet. It's a function of schedules. (HOW MANY TIMES HAVE I SAID THIS?)
Why was Wentworth Miller replaced by Fred Tastaciore?
Wentworth was no longer available to us, but Fred did a great job, don't you think?
1a) Why did you use Cassie Sandsmark before Donna Troy when you made a point to use Dick Grayson before Tim Drake and Wally West before Bart Allen?
1b) Why haven't you at least acknowledged the existence of Donna (if she's around) this season like you did with Garth when Kaldur went back to Atlantis in season 1?
1a. We had planned on introducing Troia as someone who joined AND left the Team during the five year break. But for reasons already stated here, it didn't work out.
1b. We had planned to. It didn't work out.
Was Queen Bee's design based off of Marina Sirtis? I see a slight resemblence.
No. She was designed long before we cast the roll.
I really gotta know, in Season 1, The Joker tried to kill every one present with Joker Venom when the Injustice League surrendered. While it would seem like he didn't care if he died as long as he killed everyone, Joker is immune to the deadly gas in the comics. Was he really trying to pull a genuine "Taking you with me"? Or is he immune in the YJ canon, and planned to make a getaway once the venom killed everyone?
I like it ambiguous.
Oh, no I just heard that Legacy may be pushed back until October. I hope that everything's okay, since the last interview I saw said it was basically done. Not really a question, but just a note saying I am really, really looking forward to it, and I hope it's going really well!
Last I heard it was September.
I have a question about Gargoyles 2198, specifically Demona going into space with Nokkar, Zafiro, Guardian, and LXM-1057. I suppose this doesn't count as a spoiler request.
How would Puck's spell of transformation work when there is, effectively no sunrise and sunset?
How could it NOT count as a "SPOILER REQUEST. NO COMMENT."?
How does Superboy and Superman's relationship improve over the 5 year gap? Like, do they spend time together or something?
Among other things, yes.
When one of the Green Lanterns uses the Zeta tubes and the system announces their arrival/departure, how does it name them? Does it just say, "Recognized, Green Lantern, [number]" for all of them, or does it call John and Guy by their real names since their identities are public anyway?
It just gives their nom-de-guerre (i.e. Green Lantern) and designation.
How do you guy's come up with the sound effect's for the show? Like for example Black Canary's cry?
The great team at Audio Circus, led by Otis Van Osten, creates our sound effects.
AND BIG NEWS, our sound mixer CARLOS SANCHES was just nominated for an EMMY AWARD for the sound mixing on the YJ episode "Bloodlines"!!!!
