Batman Beyond Fact #38

Did you know the season 3 finale of Batman Beyond (and series finale) ‘Unmasked’ was aired on a completely different channel?

By the time ‘Unmasked’ was set to air, the 9/11 terrorist attack had occurred, forcing KidsWB to withhold on the episode and instead re-air the season 2 episode, ‘Hooked Up’. Timm further explains that the episode was a problem child and it never actually aired on KidsWB. When Cartoon Network syndicated the series, ‘Unmasked’ was finally aired. 

“There was a lot of anticipation amongst the fans” Timm explains. “But really it’s just a run of the mill episode.” Due to fan reaction in anticipation of seeing the ‘lost episode’, Timm and crew made it a point to make season finales more impact going forward with series such as Justice League and eventually why ‘Epilogue’ was finally made as a conclusion to Batman Beyond and the DCAU as a whole.

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.”
