    Something odd I noticed is that Lewis mentioned in the photo with Willingham they recorded in "Jan'16", but previously Charlie Schlatter revealed he recorded for that episode in December 2016. But it might have been just some additional dialogue or something.

    Agreed, Schlatter was likely doing ADR.

    From what I remember, Recoome is not actually as dumb as he was in the first Funimation dub.

    I have no idea who this character is, but Shane Glines posted concept art for Red Velvet.

    Huntress, Kalibak, Dr. Light and Captain Cold are going to show up? Interesting.

    I thought Jeremy Adams said he wrote three or four episodes in total, though I could be wrong. So, "Repulse!", "Freezer Burn", "Forget Me Not" and one other?

    I can't for the life of me think of anyone in the comics, so this might be a completely original character o_O.

    She does look like a Speedster though, high heels aside :rolleyes2:.

    Glines posted designs for Kalibak, Dr. Light/Kimiyo, and Cold. Dr. Light/Arthur and Cold appear in the title sequence. Kimsey confirmed Huntress will appear.

    I thought Capizzi wrote "Freezer Burn".

    A couple more:

    - I think it was hinted before that Jonathan Callan wrote the Riddler episode. Wonder Woman, Green Arrow and Penguin should also appear (there was that brief footage at the beginning of "The Best of Wonder Woman" video).

    - Rachel Kimsey mentioned she was voicing another character (apparently in an episode involving Faust).

    There might be more but these were the first I remembered. I'll check to see if there's anything else I missed.

    ^^Hm, Faust is supposedly appearing in that "Forget Me Not" episode. Hm, perhaps Fauna Faust?

    Just read on page 22 of Back Issue! #99, one unused story for B:TAS that was Dini's - Poison Ivy enslaves Swamp Thing and forces him to fight Batman but that rights issue for Swamp Thing was still around back then and he reused it for JLA. I recall on his Twitter he mentioned reusing ideas from a Zatanna pitch. But wow, imagine if they did him in the B:TAS style...

    I think we saw an image from that episode with a redheaded reporter (Vicki Vale?) so that could be who she's voicing :).

    Things coming full circle even decades later :p.

    Oh, that's right, sorry, Capizzi did write "Freezer Burn". Thanks for the reminders regarding those characters.

    We did? I forget already.

    Hmm, wonder if there's any other scrapped ideas they dug out for the remaining episodes. Dini probably has a lot more ideas from his Zatanna pitch, too.

    No worries and you're welcome. Thought I share my attempt to refresh myself on what's left since we're more than halfway through season 1 now.

    I'm curious how those ideas were meant to be in their original context. Zatanna fighting villains like Faust and Klarion, losing her top hat or getting de-aged :)?

    I think some have figured this out already, but Paul Dini confirmed the bowling scene from the "Quality Time" webisode was originally meant to be the end gag for "Best Day Ever".

    Admittedly I think ending on Joker and Luthor was a better ending beat, since throwing in the League fighting the Ivy League at the end would have felt a little more random then it did as it's own short ;).

    Some intriguing synopses for "Phased and Confused" and "The Ringer" have surfaced on Wikipedia! I wonder if they're true.

    8/27: No, Dini said only the bowling alley part was part of the original ending - not the Ivy League fight. That was combined both to make the short I guess.

    8/30: Zap2it has a few loglines.

    Sept. 2
    The Cube Root
    Sept. 9
    Superman's Pal, Sid Sharp

    Huh, curious to see who the guest heroes in these episodes are (outside the ones mentioned in the description and confirmation for GL and Atom in "The Ringer)...
