Jason Spisak recently teased: "A tiny taste of Wally from the new #TTJudasContract movie for those who can't wait for #YJSeason3!"
I just wanted to say that even if this is reliable, I'm not taking anything for granted. This could mean anything, right? It doesn't mean you're resurrecting Wally. For all we know, Wally could just appear in a flashback.
I not only won't confirm or deny that Wally is coming back, I won't even confirm or deny that he's appearing in flashback, or confirm or deny that Jason Spisak is in any way involved with Season Three.
You recently responded to another poster who sent you his review of YJ season 1. Your response made me question what the point of doing something like that might be. I mean... I understand the poster probably wants to feel that his opinion matters, but what kind of response could he or she possibly expect from you? Did he think you were going to agree with him? Was there ever a chance that you were going to say, "You have made some excellent points, and I will take them into account as I am writing season 3"?
So, my question is: does audience feedback or reviews ever effect how you YJ in even a general way?
Nope. Doesn't mean they don't have the right to express them. But Brandon and I have to follow our passions and instincts. Have to. We can't let either praise or criticism effect our plans. For starters, for every person who likes something, there's bound to be someone who hates it and vice versa. All we can do is write the show we want to see - and pray that enough people like our work to make it successful.
You often say that ideas minus their execution are subject to unfair second guessing and that you've learned this the hard way. Can you share the specifics of this realization? What story did you share that brought this about?
Lots of Gargoyles stuff. The first thing that comes to mind is Nashville's name. But there were all sorts of things.
I'm just curious, but would the clone of someone share the same sexuality? Just for pure example, if the Original Roy Harper was purely heterosexual, then would that automatically mean Clone Roy Harper and Clone Jim Harper are purely heterosexual? (I'm not asking for spoilers about anyone's actual sexuality, just trying to understand just how far cloning goes.)
Also, we know Jim and Roy look alike (even Superboy noticed), and since then they've discovered they're actually clones. Does this mean that Roy will eventually look exactly like Jim when he's older? Since Jim is technically just an aged-up Roy Harper.
I'd think that their orientation would remain the same generally. But I haven't researched such things, and I'd want to before answering definitively. Also, clones can be manipulated in all sorts of ways. For example, Roy may or may not age to look EXACTLY like Jim, depending on things like diet, excercise and whether or not Jim's matrix was manipulated before he hatched.
Hi Greg, I have a question about traditional gargoyle culture and lifestyle--that is, their culture/lifestyle as it existed before being exposed to a ton of human interaction and influence. I realize these details likely vary from clan to clan and from century to century, but for instance, the Wyvern clan.
How might the Wyvern clan have lived prior to forming its alliance with the humans who then built the castle? We get some sense of this in the series: communal, leader and second, etc. But:
1. Aside from the rookery, would the area where the clan lived have contained some structures or shelter of any kind that the gargoyles built?
2. Would there be areas designated for certain functions (like, a place where food is prepared and cooked -- assuming they'd cook food), or would the area they occupied be more fluid in how they used it?
3. Did the clan always stay in a certain area, or would they move around at all to different areas, depending on time or year or something?
4. Aside from the leader and second, were there any other specific jobs within the clan, for instance people whose responsibility was the hunt, or would everyone sort of participate in all clan activities?
5. Related to this, in what ways did the clan's lifestyle/behaviors change after they formed the alliance and the castle was built? I imagine, even if the humans were at first very enthusiastic about their new gargoyles allies, there must have been some culture shock (on both of their parts) with having to share the same space and live together.
Thank you for your time!
2. Tend toward the fluid, I'd think. But I'm sure habits become traditions over time.
3. Clan life centered around Wyvern Hill, but they hunted, etc., all around the vicinity.
4. Warriors were also hunters. And every gargoyle was a warrior first, though some had other interests. Desdemona, for example, was spiritual, the closest thing they had to a Warrior-Priestess.
5. I think you can see most of this in our pilot.
I noticed that there's been a lot of questions being asked on here about LGBT characters, whether they be homophobic or not. Not really a question but i hope you don't feel annoyed by them
Well, I'm always annoyed by homophobia. Though I don't recall getting much of that here. (Twitter, on the other hand...) But I've got no problem with LGBTQ questions, as long as they're not (a) trying to suggest ideas or (b) asking for spoilers.
Haha i noticed your didn't answer questions for a few days after March 3rd, and then very few until March 8th. Am i correct to assume you were playing ,or by the time you see this, played the Legend of Zelda Breath of the Wild? Its mighty amazing.
No. I'm not a gamer. At all.
Dear Greg Weisman
I just want to say thank you, Young Justice is a very special show for me personally, it means more to me then anyone will ever know. You must get a lot of people asking you to incorporate their ideas into YJS3 but i just want to say, don't listen to them. i know that sounds weird, but it was you and your team that made YJ so special. Please don't give into the fans demands even if you think it might boost YJ popularity or you think it's what the people want. Go with your instincts, that's what makes YJ so unique.
I wish you the best of luck, be well and thank you again.
Thanks. But I never listen to outside ideas. For starters, I'm not allowed to, legally. And Brandon and I have to always go with our gut, anyway.
It is a little early to ask this question, but I'm going to ask it anyways. It was you who recommended that fans re-watch YJ on Netflix over and over again to bring it back. There has been no word yet as to where YJ season 3 will be broadcast, but if it is Netflix or some other streaming service, does the same principle hold for getting a season 4? That is, the more we watch and re-watch season 3 the better our chances will be of getting a season 4?
It's since been announced that we will be on a DC streaming service -with more details to come. But, yes, obviously, if folks want a season four, they need to watch the hell out of Season Three (Young Justice: Outsiders) and help spread the word so that as many people as possible watch as many times as possible. Thanks for asking!
Congratulations and big relief on Season 3 of Young Justice, Greg!
It's not really a question, but it's still important to me so I'm sending this anyway...
I'm a fresh new fan and wouldn't even know about the series if it wasn't for so many favorable opinions on the internet. When approaching the series, I must admit I was VERY sceptical since I wasn't really fond of DC as a child. And really quickly I got proven wrong, and got hooked on. The characters (and God I cherish all their designs and diversity! Plus you rarely get to see so many freckled characters in cartoons, kudos) are so lovable and charming I got legit pissed that sometimes 'threat of the day' got in the way of 'regular life' struggles.
There's just to wish for more of slice of life moments and heroes just casually hanging out, that'd be cool. Looking forward to seeing what else you got in store, good luck
We'll do our best. Thanks!
