Hey, Mr. Weisman, I have a question.
You spoke that you still had scenario of 3 parts "W.i.t.c.h.". If the project have closed. You could not give us the scenario? It would be desirable it to study. And fans would be very glad.
I am sorry for the bad English language.
I did have plans for a third season of W.I.T.C.H., but I'm afraid that was years ago, and I've forgotten most of it.
I know that Disney isn't totally giving up on the Gargoyles franchise, but is there anything specific they are giving up on? And is there anything special in the future for Gargoyles? Because i am getting a little tired of the same episodes and comics. Thanks for taking the time to read this.
You're ALREADY tired of the comics? Some of them JUST came out.
Disney has no current plans for Gargoyles. The good news is SLG is still interested in making more Gargoyles and Gargoyles-related comics, but need to make a new licensing deal with Disney before they/we can start.
Do you know any other sites that are similar to Ask Greg such as an Ask Timm site with DCAU questions? Or any other site where you ask director questions?
I don't, but that does not mean they don't exist. Hunt around, I guess.
Typo in one of my previous question. Instead of typing "call Blackie" I typed "a simple Blackie". I was at first going to say a simple Bookie, but I just ended up changing the question without editing the line. Didn't want that to be misunderstood by anyone to mean something else.
Can no magic, in the Gargoyle Universe, bring the dead back to life? Even Oberon's? I ask cause I remember while Anubis said he wouldn't bring the Vizer's son back to life (it would upset the natural order) I don't remember if he ever said he couldn't.
Anubis didn't say either way.
(And it was the Emir's son.)
Hello, your highness (you deserve to be called that because you are AWESOME). I know you plan on continuing Spectacular Spider-Man with DVD movies once the show is over but have you also considered continuing the show with a comic book just like you've continued Gargoyles with a comic book?
I'd love to. But it's not up to me. Though I have made the suggestion to Marvel.
And to be clear, I don't "plan" on continuing Spec Spidey w/DVDs. I just would like to... AFTER we've done 65 episodes.
Have you watched The Goliath Chronicles (season 3 Gargoyles)? If yes, what did you think of it?
P.S. The Manhattan Clan is the best super hero TEAM ever made. It's better than the Justice League, better than Teen Titans, better than the Avengers, better than the Autobots, better than the ninja turtles, BETTER THAN ANY SUPERHERO TEAM EVER!!!! Also, your version of Spider-Man is the best super hero ever!!!
Check the archives for the answer to your question.
Thanks for your kind words.
you asked "But -- and this is the key question -- are you public domain?"
I'm not really sure what you mean by that, but I'm definitely not copyrighted.
So, I guess, sure, I'm public domain.
If you feel so inclined you could email me at: email@example.com
I'd love to hear from you and see if there is any possibility.
Thank your time again.
I've forgotten what we're talking about, but if you are an individual then in fact you own you. So you're not public domain and not free for me to put into the series (if that's what this is about).
Greg, if you could do this, would you make a video game of The Spectacular Spider-Man. And if you do what would it be about?
I'd be happy to participate, but I have no experience in that medium, so I'd be looking to collaborate with someone who did. And before one of you guys volunteers, remember also I'd be looking to get paid.
is there really a yet to be commissioned third season as it says on wikipedia or are audiences having false hope?Have the season 3 characters been really designed?
There is in a very theoretical sense a "yet to be commissioned third season" in that I have a number of ideas and plans for said third season. And I wouldn't call rooting for it "false hope". It's all about ratings. Killer ratings and we'll probably get a pick-up. Deadly ratings and we probably won't. Anything in the middle... is a toss-up. As for character designs, no, those don't exist, as the season has NOT been greenlit, so there's no one to pay the designers to design anything.
hi greg. i love your show of The Spectacular Spiderman.
So i just wanna know if you've gotten any data on the ratings for season 3?
if so i'd love to know how its doin
There are no ratings on Season 3 as there is no Season 3 for there to be ratings on.
Hey Greg why do you and other people always call the green goblin's comic look classic Halloween style the movie one armored and the ultimate one demonic, the ultimate one is monstrous but it's not demonic, the movie one is not Armored it's just a way of trying to reproduce the comics version, and the comics version is just classic, so i'm just asking why you guys just call it that? i'm just asking that?
Who exactly are these "you guys" you're referring to? I don't recall saying anything that would include me in that group. But in any case, you seem to be splitting hairs. For example, one person's monster is another person's demon. In this case you could view them as synonyms.
I have some more questions. 1. How old will Hutson live to be? 2. What is the year he will die?
I'm not revealing this stuff.
You stated Hobgoblin will be in season 3. Do you know who will voice the hobgoblin persona. I personally think Kevin Michael Richardson will do great. The voice he did for the Joker in Batman was incredible, and you do have him included on the show already so...Anyway can't wait for more Spectacular Spiderman.
We haven't discussed something THAT hypothetical.
One more I forgot to ask: How does the process of casting voice actors work? Do you have a specific actor in mind when a character is concieved? Is it an open audition process? Or does it vary from role to role?
We auditioned eleven roles at the beginning of the SpecSpidey process. After that, with the exception of Mark Allen, we didn't hold auditions, we just cast people. This usually involved a discussion between myself and voice director Jamie Thomason. And obviously, actor availability played a huge roll in whom we ultimately cast.
Me again, with just a few more Spidey questions:
1) Where/when/how did Tombstone get powers? I'm assuming he has powers (enhanced strength, durability, reflexes) (if this is Season 3/No comment territory, I understand).
2) In "Identity Crisis", where did Flash get a Spider-Man costume? How did he put it on with a toe-to-thigh cast?
3) How much does the average Mysterio machine cost? More specifically, how much money does Spidey burn through every time he destroys a robot or a homonculus?
4) How do you come up with story ideas? Is it like "It would be cool if..." or is it more like "This villain should show up" or "This facet of Peter/Spidey's life should be established"? Or does it vary?
5) Does popular television personality/presidential candidate Stephen Colbert exist in the universe of Spectacular Spidey?
1. No comment.
2a. At a costume shop. 2b. With difficulty and some ripping.
3. No idea.
4. It varies, but we build it. Most ideas are inspired by the source material and/or come out of character.
5. Is he public domain?
MI PREGUNTA ES LA SIGUENTE: HUBIERA SIDO POSIBLE QUE GOLIATH SE TRANSFORMARA EN HUMANO PARA ASI CASARSE CON ELISA Y ASI HACERSE REALIDAD SU SUEÃ'O COMO EN EL CAPITULO "PODRIA SER REALIDAD"? GRACIAS
My high school Spanish is pretty rusty...
"My question is the [?]: [??] posible that Goliath will be transformed to human for [??] with Elisa and [??] reality... ugh, I give up.
I'm afraid I can't be sure enough of your question to answer it well...
In a previous response you wrote, "I like to think we executed [The Spectacular Spider-Man Animated Series] well, but let's face it -- ANY Spidey show would do pretty well just by virtue of it being Spidey. I can't exactly take credit for the character's popularity. All I can do is strive to do him justice. It's for others to judge if we succeeded, though we succeeded well enough to satisfy me. I'm biased, of course, but my standards are pretty high."
In a very brief conversation I once had with Tom Defalco at a convention this year, he told me that it was his opinion that writers' particular runs with an established character come and go, but what the job of each writer is, regardless of the individual direction he or she wishes to take things, is to fully inhabit the character. I think this is in keeping with what you said. I just want you to know, my standards are pretty high as well and I think your show, as a portrayal of Mr. Peter Benjamin Parker, is a success no matter what the future holds.
Thanks. I appreciate it.
When the crimelords where fighting and attempting to call for backup why did Tombstone try calling for his Blackie? I mean Doc Ock called for Kraven and Silvermane tried to call Sable, why would he call a simple Bookie?
Blackie has many skills, including coordination of "talent".
Why do you only have story arks for The Spectacular Spider-Man and not single episodes.
We have both.
Why is it that the lost footage (like Shocker's escape at the end of "Group Therapy") isn't being reinserted on the season sets?
I don't know.
Hello Greg, I would like to say The Spectacular Spiderman is one of the most entertaining shows I have ever seen. The best Spiderman adaptation ever. (including the movies) I do have a few questions though...
1.) In Shear Strength Morris Bench made a cameo, not as Hydro-Man, so I was thinking he might be in Season 3 or something, but there was a question that stated something about the sinister syndicate and you said most of those villains aren't even spiderman villains. So I was wondering is Hydro Man declared a Spiderman villain or someone like fantastic four.
2. Just to clear things up, The correct answers to these questions are, You do like Carnage, Shocker is Montana on a creative decision, Kingpin is Daredevil's villain so you can't use him, and this is the best show ever, right.
3. Why did you make gwen well like me, ya know a geek. I actually prefer her this way, she still is beautiful and more likeable than someone who is completely perfect in every way shape or form.
4. Did you say Norman's body was found? How, because that Mr. Roman dude was at the airport unless he cloned himself. P.S not a big fan of the clone saga too confusing.
That's it basically, So thank you for Spectacular Spiderman and hope the following seasons are as great as the first two.
1. Hydro-Man is a Spidey villain.
2. Yes, to the first three. As to the fourth, I'll leave that to others to decide. But I am quite fond of it.
3. I've answered this before, but the short answer is Gwen was ALWAYS a brain. We're just seeing her in high school. For a fuller answer, check the archives.
4. No clones involved in this one. A body was found that was formally identified as Norman's.
One of the things I notice upon rewatching the series is the awesome background music- did the show have a composer, and if so, who?
The series wonderful composers were the Dynamic Music Partners: Lolita Ritmanis, Kristopher Carter and Michael McCuistion.
If the show is not renewed, would that be the end of TSSM, or could you possibly get away with dvd releases?
I can only do what they hire me to do.
Did you know there's actually an online petition to release the rest of the Gargoyles series on DVD? And the comments on Youtube seem to support it. Would you please consider it?
Don't you think I want them released? It's not up to me.
