Does Beast Boy join the team in November or December 2014 or January 2015?
Got a question based on a Young Justice ramble you did a year ago:
"You've seen memorial holograms for Jason Todd/Robin and Tula/Aquagirl. There are four potential scenarios for those two characters coming back:
Scenario A) Both are going to come back.
Scenario B) Jason is going to come back, but Tula is staying dead.
Scenario C) Tula is going to come back, but Jason is staying dead.
Scenario D) Both are staying dead.
Break it down like this, and it becomes clear why I won't answer any questions about either character in this regard. Assume, just as a hypothetical example, our plan was Scenario C. Then someone asks me about Jason. They say, the show is over; if he's really dead, why not tell us. This sounds logical (in the moment), so I state that Jason is staying dead. No harm, no foul. I've only confirmed something that the show itself already stated. No big deal. That is, until someone else asked me about Tula. I don't want to answer this one, of course, because I want her resurrection to be a surprise. But I also don't want to lie. So I go for my standard "SPOILER REQUEST. NO COMMENT." But then someone realizes that I was willing to be clear about Jason, but not about Tula. Ipso facto, Tula must be coming back. And I've just spoiled my own show. Which, as I'm sure you know, I am quite LOATHE to do. Clear?"
But ressurecting characters after doing a death scene doesn't seem to be your thing based on this post:
"Don't you get tired of characters "dying" and then inevitably returning. To me, it cheapens the very concept of death. So I didn't want our series to try to fool you on that subject (for more than a few minutes). You'd know right up front that he was alive and well, even if the cast all thought he was gone. That way no one feels cheated, right?"
That even seems to hold true in young justice too.
-In Failsafe all the characters that "DIED" were revealed to be alive at the end because it was a training exercise gone wrong.
-In Auld Acquaintance you had us believe that the REAL Roy Harper was dead only to reveal he was cryogenically frozen by cadmus and taken by the light.
-In Depths you had us believe Artemis was dead for almost 22 minutes only to reveal that she wasn't by the end of the episode.
-In Summit you faked us out with Artemis and Aqualad again, but also showed that wasn't the case after that.
All of these characters being alive were revealed BY THE END of the episode at the latest. But for Tula and Wally, that wasn't what happened.
So is there a reason you would try and make us believe that Wally and Tula coming back is a possibility after doing a death scene in which neither are revealed to be alive by the end? Cause judging from your past work up until this point, that doesn't seem to be your thing.
(Also I'm not counting Jason Todd in this because we never saw how "the death scene" went down, nor it's aftermath. All were told is what the characters know. To me that's not the same as showing a characters death or "death" to your audience.)
Well, I just binge-watched all episodes of Gargoyles on Youtube to relive my glory days of when I was a kid. Thanks for giving me that show.
I know that the answer to "when are we going to get more Gargoyles?" is "Not up to me." But seriously, when are we going to get more Gargoyles! Right?!
OK so to my real questions.
1. Since it is up to Disney, do you know the process they go through to decide if a show or story is worth revising? I'm curious to know what their reasoning is for not bringing it back (I assume it has to do with the almighty dollar).
2.Related to question #1, what can we as fans do to help revive the show or a spinoff. I know it's one thing for us to ask for the show to come back, but that doesn't tell Disney anything. I know in the past you mentioned buying the DVDs. I've been telling my friends who would enjoy it to rewatch it on Youtube (and have their kids watch it too). Is there a certain # of Youtube hits they need before they will talk about reviving it? Or again, does it come back to merchandising?
3.Do you have a guess as to why it's not on Netflix? That's a way more prominent medium (in my opinion) to get people to watch a show and gauge interest. My experience with people and Youtube is that they want 3-5 minute clips, not to sit down and watch an entire episode.
Last thought, Thanks for your work. I just finished Young Justice season 1 on Netflix. Great work on that as well. I'm very much looking forward to Rebels, and as soon as I am employed again, I plan on getting your books (books if it takes me a while).
I am one of the million Young Justice and Young Justice: Invasion fans. It was a brilliant TV show, so I'd like to thank you for creating it. It was, in my opinion, Cartoon Networks best aired show. I wanted to know if there will be a season 3 or any hopes of another season? Millions of people have watched that show and millions are still talking about it. What can I do to persuade Cartoon Network to allow you to create another season (if you are willing to). If not, what happened to Wally, Dick, and Artemis? And basically everyone else like Static and Blue Beetle. Wally's 'death' has emotionally scarred all of us Young Justice fans. Please answer this as soon as possible. Thank you so much for creating my favorite TV show.
Hi, I know you've probably had this question a million times but it's 2014 and I wondering is there any chance (at all) that a season 3 of Young Justice will ever be released. I know it wasn't your fault it got cancelled but I would really like to know for sure if it is never coming back.
You are very inspiring this is my favorite cartoon alongside The Spectacular Spiderman so thank you for giving me both :)
Don't know if you know me, but I wrote a big letter to the creators of the Gargoyles fan fiction a while ago. It was big, goofy, and dramatic - and it was kind of a big joke. Anyways, in it I tried to be funny to the fan fiction creators and offer my thoughts on what they should put in the fan fiction. Well it was fun for me seeing they implemented some of it.
Fast forward to years later and I read the Gargoyles comics that were released in 2008. I didn't even know they existed for a while. I beeeeeaavee they referenced what I wrote too. It was so long ago I can't seem to remember what all I put into it - so I hope I don't sound skitzo. Like how in the end it says "Never the end" reminds me of what I typed "No, it's never the end, even though it probably is." There was some other stuff but I guess you get the picture.
Too bad they got discontinued after a few issues. You didn't hit the ground running IMO. It started out pretty weak. They went and had another Halloween party or something - blah. I guess the evil clone and the mad scientist are the new baddies.
I guess I should have responded before now, but I really wasn't sure why.
1. Is it possible that the Earth-16 version of Isabel Rochev had something to with Earth-16's Oliver Queen losing all of his fortune?
2. If we don't see "Young Justice" on TV again after a number of years, then what are the chances that the Darkseid-Light Alliance storyline could be explored and resolved as a possible DC Universe Original Animated Movie?
3. If you ever get the chance to do another DC cartoon series, how would you feel if you were ever given a chance to do another Earth-16 series that is set in Earth-16's distant future (for example, Legion of Super-Heroes or Batman Beyond-like future setting)?
Will we ever get to see what happens for the rest of Spectacular Spider-man, and the Young Justice tv series? I am asking this cause they were two great shows that got canceled for pathetic reasons and it kills me thinking that we will never get to know the timeline of the shows, especially after Norman survived the bombs and Jason Todd made a cameo in the hall
How much time pass from Marie Logan's death and Garfield finding her body? How soon after Marie's death did Garfield start living at the cave? Why did Beast Boy not join the team soon after Lagoon Boy join the team?
I have been at Walt Disney World for a few months now and have not seen anything Gargoyles related. However, recently I came across some pictures that they can have Disney artist draw of Goliath and Demona. Its the only Gargoyles stuff I have seen and I was wondering if you know why they retired Goliath from walking around the park? Or why they don't seem to acknowledge Gargoyles at all in the park?
