Warner Bros, home of DC-based animated super hero shows such as Justice League Unlimited and Dark Knight Returns, is saying goodbye to animation producer Bruce Timm.
Timm produced many projects over the years, starting in 1989. During his time as a producer, he worked on projects such as 1992's Batman and Batman Beyond. His latest project was a movie adaptation of Frank Miller's The Dark Knight Returns. He was set to work on Green Lantern: The Animated Series, but the project has since been cancelled.
Newsarama reports that James Tucker will replace Bruce Timm. Tucker worked for Warner Bros. as a storyboard artist, and first began back in 1996 on the popular cartoon Pinky and the Brain. He has since been very involved in the animation projects at Warner Bros. Tucker directed episodes of Batman Beyond and produced the last season of Justice League.
In an interview with Voices From Krypton, Tucker talks about how he plans to work in his new position.
"I’m not really interested in replicating, image by image, word for word, something that was in a comic book, because you can’t replicate that experience or feeling... You have to make it your own in order to make it work as a movie."
Are you sad to see Timm leave? Or more exited to see Tucker step in?
