One time, Al Roker was interviewing me in the studio where I was doing Superman, and—I don’t think it was a live interview. I think it was taped. But, anyway, there was a woman from Warner Bros. there, and there was Al, and Al said, “So what’s it like doing the voice of Superman?” And I said, “Well, you know, most of what I do is these grunting, straining, screaming noises, because Superman’s always getting clobbered. Somebody’s beating him up or he’s getting electrocuted by a laser beam, or he’s hit by a bus or a truck or smashed by a girder. Come to think of it, it’s a little disconcerting to think that the children of America have a pretty good idea of what I sound like in bed.” And Al fell out of his chair laughing, but the woman from Warner Bros. was, uh, not too happy. [Laughs.] I should’ve known better. But I did get a very nice letter from Warner Bros., asking me to please not do that anymore. So I was very contrite. I felt bad about it.

Bruce Timm to Produce New Justice League Series (x)

Whoa! DCAU mastermind Bruce Timm will executive producer a new digital Justice League cartoon for Machinima to debut in spring of 2015. Titled Justice League: Gods and Monsters Chronicles, it will be be co-produced by his Batman: The Animated Series partner Alan Burnett.

Originally announced as another DC direct-to-home video animated movie, Gods and Monsters Chronicles will now be a three-part digital series; according to Comic Book Resources it’s an original story by Timm which has nothing to do with the 2001 Justice League comic of the same name. 

“‘Chronicles’ is said to revolve around a newly conceived reality in the DC universe where Justice League members Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman are much darker versions of the superheroes that people know.”
