Producer James Tucker Discusses New “Batman: The Brave And The Bold” Episode

The World’s Finest caught up with Batman: The Brave and The Bold Producer James Tucker to discuss the latest episode of the acclaimed animated series, “Crisis 22,300 Miles Above Earth!” The all-new episode debuts Friday, October 28th, 2011 at 7:00pm (ET) on Cartoon Network. The episode airs after a special presentation of the The Batman Versus Dracula animated feature, airing from 5:00pm to 7:00pm on the same network. The episode features the Justice League International, the Justice Society of America, and the return of Ra’s Al Ghul. Continue below for the all-new exclusive Batman: The Brave and The Bold Q & A with Tucker.

The World’s Finest: First up the teaser. Batman is the victim of a comedy roast from his deadliest enemies. Can you expand upon your inspiration for this teaser, and the inclusion of comedian Jeffery Ross? Would you have liked to have done an entire episode dedicated to…roasting Batman?

James Tucker: I believe Michael Jelenic wanted to do the teaser that took place at a Roast. I liked the idea but my original concept was to make it more like the old Dean Martin Roasts that I watched as a kid. I really hadnt watched the current version of this thats waaaay more risque on cable TV. Anyway, Michael Goguen, the director of this episode, kind of fused the old and new roasts into what was in the episode. We ended up with Jeffery Ross as the host because, fortunately, he was friends with John DiMaggio! It worked out great, and Jeffery even brought some of his own jokes to pepper his routine with. Im not sure that anyone would want a whole episode dedicated to Batman getting roasted however. At least, I know I wouldnt.

WF: To the episode itself, it features the JLI and the JSA coming together…but not exactly seeing eye to eye. There seems to be a generation gap between the two group of heroes. An you expand upon this approach used, the inability for the two groups to properly get along?

JT: We wanted to do a JLI/JSA team-up from the first season but there never seemed to be a good place for it since we had to introduce both groups in separate episodes for a team up to make any sense. The idea of using the setting a party going wrong really appealed to us because we got to play up the idea that the JSA doesnt really like this new League made up of loose cannons. It also offered an opportunity to touch on the comparisons to the original Justice League that disbanded for reasons weve never touched on. It wasnt the typical JL/JSA story I envisioned in the earlier seasons but I think this ended up being a lot more fun overall.

WF: As a semi-follow-up to the first question, is it safe to say that some of this episode is influenced by the annual JSA/JLA crossovers that DC Comics used to publish?

JT: Yes, I wanted it to be reminiscent of those old Justice League comics where once a year, the Justice League and the Justice Society met and had a mixer and something always went wrong and theyd have to join forces to face some crisis. But in this case we thought that the crisis would be the mixer itself, not some actual universe threatening event. I always looked forward to those issues where the JLA and the JSA teamed up but the part that always interested me wasnt the actual adventure but the small talk that would take place at the beginning of the story when the guests arrive and the heroes would talk shop so thats a lot of what the episode was about and about the JSA not approving of this new version of the Justice League. We solved the problem of not having enough action in it by cross cutting to Batman on a life threatening adventure, but trying to get to the party in time.

WF: Is there any era specifically that you drew the most influence from for the JSA? Are there any JSA stories you wish you had the opportunity to touch upon for the series?

JT: The era Im most familiar with is of course the version I was introduced to as a kid reading comics. So, whatever the line up was during the bronze age of DC Comics is what I gravitate toward. Of course, because in our series, there is no Earth 2, we had to make compromises along the way as we were setting up both groups. But I liked the idea that, in our series, Batman and Superman werent the first superheroes, but the Justice Society existed before both of them. I liked the idea of the current heroes having been mentored by older heroes. There arent any actual JSA stories that spring to mind that Id like to adapt though. Its the concept of the JSA that seemed to attract me more than any of their actual adventures, though it would have been nice to have a story pitting them against more of their rogues like , Vandal Savage, Brain Wave, and the Injustice Society.

WF: This episode also brings back Ras Al Ghul to the series, and he gets a bit of a spotlight (including a surprising moment or two). Can you run us through the Batman: The Brave and The Bold interpretation of Ras al Ghul and how he may differ from other version weve seen in the past?

JT: There isnt really much difference between our shows version of Ras and any other version really. Same character, just made more of a mustache twirling villain in our show than in other interpretations. I liked the idea of pushing his connections as basically Batmans version of a James Bond villain. To me, he works best as the Fu Manchu/Dr. No/Goldfinger type villain he started out as. He doesnt really fit in with any of Batmans other villains. So we played up the Bond-like elements a lot in this episode from the ski chase at the beginning to the use of a John Barry-inspired score. I do wish we had at least one Lazarus Pit sequence in the series. Seeing Ras go insane with power is always fun!

WF: As per always, we bring this Q & A to a close with the standard capper why should fans check out this new episode on Friday?

JT: Fans can expect the return of both the JSA and Ras al Ghul, as well as the first ever appearance on the series of the Alan Scott Green Lantern. That should be enough to get anyone inspired to watch!

The all-new Batman: The Brave and The Bold episode “Crisis 22,300 Miles Above Earth!” debuts tonight, Friday, October 28th, 2011 at 7:00pm (ET) on Cartoon Network. Continue to the Batman: The Brave and The Bold subsite for further details on this series.

Red Tornado will be their supervisor; Black Canary will be in charge of their training, and Batman will hand out their assignments.

Producer James Tucker Discusses New “Batman: The Brave And The Bold” Episode

The World’s Finest caught up with Batman: The Brave and The Bold Producer James Tucker to discuss the latest episode of the acclaimed animated series, “Powerless!” The all-new episode debuts tonight, Friday, October 21st, 2011 at 7:00pm (ET) on Cartoon Network. The episode features the Jokers of All Nations and the Justice League International. Continue below for the all-new exclusive Batman: The Brave and The Bold Q & A with Tucker.

The World’s Finest: This episode opens with the “Batmen of all Nations” facing off against the “Jokers of all Nations.” Is it safe to say the “Batmen” are inspired by both the original 90s appearance by some of these Batmen as well as the recent Grant Morrison works? What inspirations did you take for the Joker’s rival gang?

James Tucker: Actually, I based this version of The Batmen on the original 50s version for the most part combined with some of the more recent versions. It wasnt specifically patterned after Morrisons version though. The Jokers of All Nations were picked based on what kind of humorous outfit we could put them in. Basically we picked countries that werent represented by the Batmen of All Nations already.

WF: Captain Atom is the spotlight hero in this episode. Could you explain your influences with this particular version of the character?

JT: The basic idea of this episode was what does a powerful superhero do when their superpowers are gone. Is it the man or the Superman that makes the hero? Originally this was conceived more as a showcase for Captain Atom, but I wanted to refocus it to include the Justice League International because we wanted to give them a certain amount of spotlight this season. Michael Jelenic and I wanted to make this version of Captain Atom a bit of a jerk to set up the theme of the episode, so he does get a bit humbled by the end. Or does he?

WF: Aquaman sings in this episode. Can you take us through his song, the assorted costumes, etc.? Will this be Aquaman’s last big moment in the series?

JT: Well the script was a bit story-lite really, and we needed to fill up some time and rather than just add another fight, our default mode is now to add a song. The song served the story purpose of defining what the episode was really about and it also provided some much needed empathy for Captain Atom as well as a chance to give some easter eggs to the fans in the know. And who better to sing a song about heroism than Aquaman? John Dimaggio was such a great singer and we love Aquaman, obviously, so Michael and I whipped up some lyrics, and our great musicians, Dynamic Music Partners, did their magic and actually made it a song and I story boarded the sequence. This was done a while after the story had been written and the majority of the show had started being storyboarded, if Im not mistaken, so we were under the gun. I designed the costumes on the board and then our character designers had the unenviable task of drawing most the different versions of Aquaman in the various costumes. But fear not, Aquaman has a few more spotlights coming up this season before were done!

WF: The JLI has made multiple appearances in the series so far. Can you run us through this team why you chose these particular cast members. And if there’s a JLI, is there also the traditional Justice League somewhere in this universe?

JT: We wanted to use roughly the same version of the JLI that was in the comics during its creation, so Fire, Ice, Martian Manhunter, Booster Gold, Blue Beetle (the current living version) and Guy Gardner were obvious choices. Michael Jelenic wanted Aquaman on the team and of course, who am I to argue with that? My only regret is not putting in a joke about Aquamans brief stint as leader of Justice League Detroit in the series somewhere. That would have been hilarious. Our continuity on this show was malleable to say the least, so Justice League International is our defacto name for any version of the League that has appeared because thats the name we had the legal right to use at the time we were producing the show. But I will say that there is no other version of Justice League operating right now besides this version. However, later on in the remaining episodes, new heroes will have joined. Also, there was never any plan of elaborating on what broke up the original League. The reality of a group splitting up just isnt that important to us. Especially given weve covered that type of story ground in our Doom Patrol episode.

WF: The episode tackles the idea of heroes with an without powers, and which are better. Care to chime in with your thoughts on this debate?

JT: I dont have any opinion either way. Theres one scene in the story early on where Captain Atom really breaks down what would really happen to a Batman in a world really populated with super powered villains and its really hilarious. I cant say I disagree with him. But this is why we love Batman because in some ways, as far as comic books go, hes the most unrealistic character of all because hes human and can be killed potentially, and yet, his brains, athletic ability, will power, wealth and gadgets keep him alive and let him win. Hes the ultimate symbol of American capitalism if you want to take it to an extreme comparison.

WF: As always, we wrap up this mini-Q & A with the same question – why should fans check out this new episode of Batman: The Brave and The Bold when it airs on the 21st?

JT: Aquaman Sings! Again. nuff said.

The all-new Batman: The Brave and The Bold episode “Powerless!” debuts tonight, Friday, October 21st, 2011 at 7:00pm (ET) on Cartoon Network. Continue to the Batman: The Brave and The Bold subsite for further details and media from this episode.

Justice League: Doom finds Superman, Wonder Woman, Flash, Green Lantern, Martian Manhunter, Cyborg and Batman on their heels when a team of super villains discover and implement the Dark Knights contingency plans for stopping any rogue Justice League member. The story is inspired by Mark Waids much-heralded JLA: Tower of Babel.

Primetime television stars Nathan Fillion (Castle) and Tim Daly (Private Practice), the reigning voices of Green Lantern and Superman, respectively, join a group of eight actors reprising their famed cartoon roles, including Kevin Conroy (Batman: The Animated Series) as Batman, Michael Rosenbaum (Smallville, Breaking In) as Flash, Susan Eisenberg (Superman/Batman: Apocalypse) as Wonder Woman and Carl Lumbly (Alias) as Jonn Jonzz/Martian Manhunter.

David Kaufman (Danny Phantom) also reprises his Justice League role of Jimmy Olsen.
