1. Whisper was 22 at the end of Season One.
2. I don't seem to have this information on my timeline.
Quick question-Does Elisa have any martial arts training? (outside of self defense training from the Academy)
Hey Greg! I'm very, very happy that Young Justice is back! I wanted to ask your opinion on Male same-sex couples in media and why they don't seem very common. I've noticed that lots of cartoons, even shows in general, that dare delve into LGBT themes only take FEMALE same-sex couples seriously, never male ones, and if they do have any male gay couples, they are never seen, only alluded to, or as the butt of a joke. As a gay male I'm ECSTATIC that LGBT themes are now being explored EVERYWHERE, but I'm forced to wonder why it seems that only lesbian couples are ever fleshed out, or as fleshed out as it can be currently.
So since you work in the industry I'd like to know your opinion on the matter, and also any insight as to WHY male gay couples take a back seat on these things. My theory is that same sex female couples are less "threatening" then male ones, as to why... I guess that just speaks on us as a society.
I'd tend to agree with your assessment.
In the Young Justice episode Before the Dawn did miss martian become younger than her adult form when she became shorter when she rescue beast boy and impulse? She sounded younger when call Garfield.
Hello Greg! My name is Novi and I am from Indonesia. I am a co-owner of a DC Comics Fan Community in Indonesia, the name is DC Club Indonesia. I just want to know if I can ask you about Young Justice in DC Animated Universe. Your answers would be put in an article on our website. It's like an interview thing. We, Indonesian DC Comics fans, are very curious about the concept of Young Justice from the beginning until the future. So far, DC Club Indonesia is on Instagram and LINE Messenger only. Our website has been hacked as well, but we are trying to fix it. We hope once our website is fixed, we can publish the article. Thank you.
All requests for interviews on Young Justice have to go through Warner Bros publicity.
Hello Mr. Weisman,
I had just a couple of questions.
1. One thing about the animation industry is that once a season is over there is no guarantee that the next season will be picked up. Should some one have a plan B for another profession if the next season does not work out? Or is there plenty of work in California that if you did your job well, finding another one should not take long?
2.If someone has a animation idea they want to pitch and have all the details worked out (pitch bible, characters, story, and pilot script) how would they know when they could pitch the idea?
3. I had a question for attires for animation shows. Does it cost more to have different episodic attires for characters or do characters have only one attire to save time? I know in Spectacular, Peter had a winter attire with the jacket, or that one time he had the black shirt with brown pants during the symbiote removal episode but is there a choice on whether they can change their attire episode by episode to add more realism?
1. Well, uh... There are no guarantees. I try to have other work lined up, pretty much always. And sometimes I'm just flat-out unemployed for stretches. This gig is not for the faint of heart, I guess.
2. I'm not sure I understand the question. If you're ready, pitch. But my caution would be to be careful not to poison the water. If it's a work in progress, and isn't actually very good (YET), then I wouldn't pitch. Make sure you're only showing the best possible version of what you've got. On the other hand, there's not much point in noodling forever on an idea. If it's solid, go for it.
3. Every design - and new clothes are a new design - cost time, which costs money. So, yes, in animation, we need a pretty good reason to give characters additional wardrobe. But if we need it, we need it.
I am very interested into breaking into the animation industry. I am currently in college working on my English writing skills and drawing skills as well. I heard in one of your previous interviews that moving to California would be smart as thats where alot of the animation jobs are. By the time you read this question I would hopefully be done reading "Gardner's Guide to Writing and Producing Animation" by Shan Muir. I should get a better idea about the industry itself from reading that book, but since you have experience as a animation producer I just had a couple of specific questions hopefully you can answer.
1. Would animation companies be more interested in investing original show ideas or original ideas on licenses they already acquire? I.E. an idea that some one made up and wanted to make into a show or having original material for a Marvel Spider-Man show or DC Superman show?
2. I have never been to California but I heard the cost of living is higher than any state (considering that Im from the east coast) should one wait to have an agent then move to Cali or should they move there, settle in, get a part time job then pursue after the animation career?
3.If by some miracle a persons idea gets picked up by a company, they might not immediately give them control over production. Could a recommendation for a more seasoned producer ( like Paul Dini, Victor Cook, or even Brandon Vietti) be made and considered? or is it 9/10 they provide their own producer?
4 (Last one) Animation on live television has changed drastically over the past couple of decades. With online streaming services such as Netflix, Hulu, and even Amazon Prime have shown that people rather binge a season versus figure out what time slot it will appear on television. So my question is, if a person has an idea but would think that idea would perform better on a streaming service versus online television, should that be included in the pitch or should they let the executives worry about that? For example Marvel hasn't made a Spider-Man 2099 cartoon series yet and if it were to be adapted truly it would probably do way better on an online streaming service where people can watch and binge episodes on their own time, versus live television in which a shows lifespan can be cut at any moment.
That's all the questions that I have and I hope I haven't broken any of your guidelines. I hope to break into the industry within the next five years and is willing to do almost anything to make my dream come true. Thank you for your time!
1. Marquis value is always something sought after, but there's no way to predict what a given network or studio is looking for from the outside in. You can come in with a take on Wile E. Coyote, and find out that Warner Bros already has plans for him. So, I tend to advise people to spend their time on something they can own. But it's not a hard and fast rule.
2. I don't know how you get an agent without getting work first. And frankly, I don't know how you get a first job if you're not here pounding the pavement. There's work in New York. And a few other places. But most of the animation writing work is in Los Angeles.
3. How could you possibly get a recommendation to be a producer from anyone if you've never produced? Dude, you have to work your way up through the ranks. Freelance writer. Staff writer. Story editor. Producer. If you come in with a brilliant idea that they're desperate to have, I suppose anything is possible. But it's not likely. Prove yourself. THEN sell your brilliant idea.
4. You can suggest whatever you want. But if you sell to Netflix, for example, of course they're looking at a binge-model. And if you sell to Cartoon Network, of course they're NOT. So try not to limit your options.
Hello, I wanted to ask a bit of a silly question. Doesn't it make you uncomfortable when people pair up Bart and Jaime because of their age gap? I know that a 20 year old dating a 23 year old isn't that much, but for two teenagers a 3 year gap is really significant and such.(especially if it's,say 14-17) I'm sorry if this comes across as rude in any way
I do think folks don't take age gaps - at these ages - into account in their ships sometimes. I'm not going to comment on this particular fan ship. But I do think it's a legitimate concern that we pay attention to over here on the show.
After Marie Logan was killed by Queen Bee was put into a grave? If so where is her grave ?
I haven't thought about this.
Uhm I read the points of the guideline, but I don't wanna spoilers about I what ask, I just wanna know what think about the Bluepulse(JaimexBart, you know) Well...This is my question..I respect your decission, but I hope you respond this question
Good Luck with JY3 and all your proyects,Greg :)
If I had an opinion and told you what it was, it would be a spoiler. So I can't even acknowledge whether or not I have an opinion, because by acknowledging that, I'm in essence giving information that on this or other questions, would allow inference.
Why didn't the showers at the Cave have partitions between them? It seems weird that people who wear masks to hide their identities would share an open shower area. There's no privacy in the League when it comes to personal higiene? What about the Team? Did Robin shower with his sunglasses on?
Robin kept his eyes closed.
I have some questions about Star Wars Rebels.
1. Can you go through the process of making a complete episode of Star Wars Rebels?
2. What was your role while working on the show?
3. How long did it take to complete a whole episode?
4. Did you make any voice cameos in the show like Dave Filoni has?
5. What is Dave Filoni like, and what was it like working with him?
1. Um. Sure.
In the broadest terms, we broke the stories together.
Writers went off and wrote outlines.
I edited the outlines.
I got notes on the outlines.
Writers went off and wrote scripts.
I edited the scripts.
I got notes on the scripts.
I revised the scripts.
We recorded the dialogue.
Design work, which began off of us breaking the stories above, continued with more specificity based on the scripts.
Storyboard artists began storyboarding based on the scripts and the dialogue tracks.
Directors turned the storyboards into animatics for review.
Animation was done overseas.
Footage came back, which was edited in post-production.
Music and effects were added.
There's way more to it than that, but that covers the basics.
2. I was the story editor on Season One. I also wrote a few of the episodes myself. And I even voiced a couple of Storm Troopers. As a producer, I was involved in casting, and many other aspects of the series. And I ran the writer's room where we broke the stories.
3. About a year.
5. Dave's great. We had a blast.
1. Did you see Rogue One? If so what did you think of it?
2. Are you excited for Episode VIII?
3. Have you been following Star Wars Rebels after leaving the show once season 1 was done? If so, what are your thoughts on the show and where it is going.
1a. Generally, liked it.
3. I watched season two and thought it was great. Have DVR'd everything since, but I've just been too swamped to watch it yet.
1. When did Aquaman and Mera get married?
2. When is Iris' due date for the twins?
3. On Earth-16, is Vandal Savage considered the first ever cannibal?
4. How old is Wally and Artemis' dog Brucely?
5. Is Wally's sacrificing of himself to save the world public knowledge, or did the League keep it under wraps?
1. I haven't nailed that down.
2. The September immediately following Season Two.
3. When did you stop beating your wife?
4. He was two in season two.
5. No spoilers.
Do you enjoy having conversations with people about your work (If they are not asking for spoilers or trying to pitch you ideas etc.
Do you ever whistle just for the fun of it?
Hey Greg, I thought I'd bring up a paradox I thought of regarding YJ, not to criticize the show (I loved the show) but just for fun:
Okay so let's suppose for the sake of discussion that Impulse went back into the past solely to prevent Blue Beetle from going rogue (whether or not this was his only reason remains to be seen). So the reach fails their plan and everything is good. But, we know impulse went back into the past from a dystopic future to prevent said future from ever happening. Now let's say Impulse is able to stop the future from happening. Regardless of whether he can go back to the future or not, the timeline is altered so that the future was never dystopic to begin with, not giving Impulse any reason to go into the past in the first place. What happens to the Impulse already in the past, does he "cease?" The rabbit hole goes deeper. With the future altered, Impulse doesn't go into the past to begin with. So there's no Impulse in the past to fix the dystopic future. So the future becomes dystopic again. So the universe is indetermined. It's in a superposition of states: Dystopic future or happy future. Impulse having to go into the past or not. This is simply a rewording of the grandfather paradox by the way. Let's suppose time travel is possible in the first place (it's not, it's forbidden by the second law of thermodynamics), the ramifications on the universe could be immense, or there could be none at all depending on how the The Young Justice universe works. Just wanted your thoughts on this. Thanks!
Yeah, I've explored all this in detail. The workings of Time Travel in the DC Universe don't suit my preferences. I prefer the way we did time travel in the Gargoyles Universe. But the way I see it for YJ, is that in essence, Bart came back, and his coming back, split off Earth-16 as a parallel universe. So Bart came back from - in essence - another time line.
As of Jan. 2017, have you heard anything regarding new comics or anything to do with Gargoyles?
No. Not as of April 2017 either.
I'd like to offer an apology.
As you may recall, I was the one who asked why you are no longer working on Rebels. I wouldn't ask someone in real-life why they are no longer working at such-and-such a place, so I shouldn't ask questions like that in an online forum either. I hope that you will accept my apology and won't hold my rudeness against me if we ever meet in person. Believe it or not, I am usually considered a very polite person. I will try in the future to remember that there is an actual person responding to our questions and not a machine.
Now, how old is Zatanna? :)
1. No worries. Honestly.
2. She was 14 during season one.

Mr. Greg Weisman,
In "Young Justice," was "Diana Prince" the name that Wonder Woman used only as a "human" secret identity? Was Wonder Woman also ever addressed as "Diana of Themyscira" by herself or other people at any point in time?
The premise of your question assumes facts not in evidence, and I'm not going to spoil stuff.
I recently watched the first two season of YJ and purchased the first 2 collections of the YJ comics. I really loved them, good luck on season 3, and if the sales are good enough on the continuation of YJ comic series.
But I have some questions too:
1.) One of my friends told me that he once read an issue called "Face your Fears". But I'm unable to find it anywhere, and it's not part of the collections. Is it still available somewhere? Is that a canon issue too?
2.) We know that both Jay and KF were slower than Barry.. but who is the faster one between Jay and KF? (Jay'speed in his prime, and Wally's speed as of Season 2)
Thank you for your time
1. That was a giveaway. I think it was written to be canon, but I don't have a copy of it either, which makes it tough for me to include it as canon sometimes... mostly because I keep forgetting that it existed.
2. They were close to even, but I'd tend to give Wally the edge because of modern training methods.
Thanks for answering my Dracula and Malefic questions.
You've often talked about incorporating various characters and concepts from mythology, folklore or the public domain into the Gargoyles Universe. E.G. Dracula, Prospero & Jean Valjean.
But are there any characters or concepts from the PD that you'd legally be allowed use in the GU, but would rule out for thematic or aesthetic reason?
Probably. But nothing comes to mind.
in spectacular spider-man tv series. did norman knows peter is spider-man like the comics?
He said he didn't. Do you believe him?
I'm asking this due to the fact that you're no longer working on Star Wars Rebels.
Where should fans of Star Wars Rebels go to ask questions about thing post season 1?
Personally I want to ask about The Bendu
Don't know. Sorry. Check with Lucasfilm, I guess.
I want to know, when did Artemis knew she had a niece?
After Roy found out.
I've been wondering for a while now; do you have full creative freedom over Young Justice season 3 or is there some restrictions and/or lines that you can't explicitly cross?
Yes. And yes.
Hey greg,Just a few questions.
1: What character in Young Justice do you think you're most like?
2: What is your 2 favorite episodes out of the first two seasons of YJ?(one from each)
3: What's your favorite part of being in charge/creator of the show?
1. Lucas Carr. He sounds like me.
2. Misplaced. Maybe Summit. But I like 'em all.
3. CO-in charge. CO-creator. Couldn't do it without Brandon Vietti, and my favorite part is collaborating with him and the rest of our amazing cast and crew. (My favorite part of the process is the sound mix.)
rephrasing the question, How did you manage to relate to Spider-Man/Peter Parker? that I asked you earlier. I actually wanted to ask you what traits of Spider-Man/Peter Parker's character do you find that you have within yourself?
He worries about money.
He worries about girls. (I don't do that anymore. Happily married for over twenty years, but I haven't forgotten what that was like.)
He worries about letting down the people in his life.
He worries about stopping super-villains. (Um... well, actually, I do worry about that. Though maybe that's not time well spent.)
In the "Young Justice" why was the name "Justice League" chosen for the team of heroes, as opposed to naming themselves the "Justice League of America"?
Because not all the heroes were American, and because it was an international organization with a United Nations Charter.
What's Owen's middle name?
What makes you think he has one?
But probably Robin. Maybe. Or maybe not.
Hey, I have a few questions about the upcoming new episodes of YJ that occurred to me (logistical, not going to ask you what it's about obviously).
1. How far (if at all) did you guys get into the planning/writing of S3 before production ended? Had you gotten as far as writing scripts/breaking episodes or was it just sort of general ideas?
2. Do you still plan to move forward more or less with what you came up with during the first round of production or have things sort of morphed in the intervening years?
3. You've said before that you would sort of ideally never end a series definitively (given that life rarely has complete closure, that makes sense to me on a creative level). That being said, is there a particular number of YJ seasons you have roughly planned out, if not fully plotted/outlined (Joss Whedon for instance has said that he originally planned 5-7 seasons for Firefly)?
4. If yes, what is that number (if you're willing to reveal)?
1. Just general ideas. We did NOT start season three until November of 2016.
3. We had about five when we started. But we keep coming up with more ideas. So we probably still have about five (over and above what we've already done).
4. See above.
What is your opinion on Green Lantern (2011)?
I personally think it's average compared to the dislike of many people.
I think common sense dictates that I not answer this question.
i was wondering how do the zeta tubes know where to transport someone because they just walk into it without saying where or entering a destination from what I've read and heard?
They do enter a destination.
1. Regarding Alfred's work as a butler. What are his work hours and conditions? He's obviously not a regular butler, as he's not only there whenever Bruce needs him (and all that history of his parents' death), but he's also helping Batman. So, even with all that said, does Alfred live a pretty regular life, considering?
2. How long has James Gordon been on the police force?
1. No. Nothing at all like a regular life.
2. I haven't done that math.
It's not a question but thank u for the work on young justice it's put me through hard times thank u so much I can't wait for season 3
You're very welcome. We're excited for it too.
Hey, YJ questions (so psyched that it's coming back! I really love your adaptation of the DCU)
1. In the universe of Earth-16 (or whatever earth it is now), do Kryptonians age at the same rate as humans? Like, are their life spans comparable?
2. Is the Martian civilization capable of intersteller travel? Could a bioship like Miss Martian's travel between star systems or are they pretty much just planet hoppers?
3. Can Kryptonians and humans produce offspring? It's sort of gone back and forth in the comics whether they're biologically compatible in that way and I'm curious about your thoughts on it (I won't ask if that WILL happen, so I hope it doesn't count as a spoiler).
Thanks so much!
1. More or less.
2. The Bio-Ship isn't light speed capable. In theory, it could travel between star systems, but it would take a LONG time.
3. Answering the question at all amounts to a potential spoiler.
Hey, Greg,I've got to tell you something, Josh Keaton, the voice of Spider-Man in Spectacular Spider-Man reprised the character in the Marvel Super Hero Squad video games and Marvel Vs. Capcom 3, And he was going to reprise his role in The Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes, But he was replaced by Drake Bell from Ultimate Spider-Man.
What do you think of this?
I think Josh is great, and my ideal Spider-Man. So I'm happy whenever he gets to do anything (but especially Spider-Man).
Does the Team attend college? What do they study and when and where do they attend? What jobs are they pursuing if any?
I've answered this already. Please check the archives. If I've left someone out that you're curious about, you can submit the question with regards to specific individuals. Although, keep in mind, I won't give spoilers.
While Garfield is transformed into animal form, is he susceptible to Queen Bee's pheromone powers?
Hello! When I found out that Young Justice was returning for a third season, I was ECSTATIC. However I am horribly impatient, and I was wondering if you could give an estimated date for when viewers can expect to see the new season. Thanks so much!
I cannot. Not because I'm being coy, but because I honestly don't yet know where or when the new season will be. But we're hard at work on it, I can tell you that, with more and more crewmembers coming aboard almost daily.
1. If for some reason young justice were to be asked for the DCEU ( in the distant future ) would you be willing to write a script, or would you pass the mantle on to someone else? 2. If you were to pass on the mantle to who would you?
I don't really understand the question. You mean for a live action feature? If so, I'd want to do it if they'd let me, but I'd lay odds they wouldn't. In any case, it certainly wouldn't be up to me.
Since issues stopped "Kidd/Hero" from ever happening, is there anything more you want to tell us about what it would have been about?
I can't. I don't own it.
What's your favorite power of Superman?
In "Temptation", Lexington comments on how Brooklyn once rode a horse. How was the experience for Brooklyn and the horse?
