May 4, 2004: Bruce Timm talks “Justice League Unlimited”
The Comics Continuum have posted a report from San Francisco's WonderCon, detailing the discussions surrounding the third season of the "Justice League" animated series, which has been re-titled "Justice League Unlimited". Here's an excerpt from the report...

"When we finished Season 2, we honestly didn't know if it was going to be our last season or not," he said. "We thought it was a 50-50 chance it could be our last season of Justice League.
"But they did come to us and say, 'We would like to pick up Seasons 3 and 4 of Justice League.' They did have a couple of stipluations. One of them was that they didn't want two-part stories any more; they wanted us to do half-hour, self-contained stories. At first, we were like, 'Yeah, we really liked two-part, hour-long stories; we liked having that elbow room to stretch out.' But we did Batman and Superman and Batman Beyond as half-hour shows, so it would just take a little bit of a learning curve to go back and figure out how to tell Justice League stories in a half an hour. But we thought we could do it.

"The second thing is that they asked us to rebrand the show somehow. And they were very vague about that. They just wanted to do something to differentiate Season 3 from Seasons 1 and 2, to let the audience know it's a fresher show.

"And, honestly, in retrospect, I think they would have been happy if we just changed the title of the show. And maybe some kind of superficial change with the line-up of the show."

Other information to come out of the "Justice League" panel at WonderCon included:
Season 3 and Season 4 will both have 13 episodes.

Mongul returns in the second episode of the third season, an adaptation of the Alan Moore story, "For the Man Who Has Everything."
"It's a really intense episode," Timm said. "Mongul is definitely scary than in the episode 'War World.'"

Timm confirmed that "Starcrossed" will debut on DVD (July 13) before airing on Cartoon Network, which has not announced a date yet. "It's a new release pattern that they're trying out," he said.

Timm said that the Justice League: Starcrossed DVD will have special features. "A camera crew came in and did a bunch of interviews, so there's talking heads featurettes," Timm said. "We talk a little about where the story came from and the background of the characters and why we chose this Hawkman over the exact Hawkman of the comics."
Timm said he pushed for full-screen and wide-screen releases for the DVD.

Timm said that the vehicles in Justice League Unlimited, including a new Javelin, will be digitally created.
"The 3-D modeling that they do overseas is just so much better than they did even three or four years ago," Timm said.

Supergirl will be appearing at least twice.

If done correctly, "For the man who has everything can be a GREAT episode."

They have all the characters in place from the Superman animated pilot and I hope they all reprise their roles for the voices in this episode.
