    Interesting that Superman and Lex seem like they went through the least amount of alteration between their original designs and what Timm and co. ultimately went with :).

    I didn't know this but apparently it was planned at one point that Superman and Lashina conceived a son while he was brainwashed and in the Beyond era he would overthrow Darkseid, take the throne and invade Earth. Lashina would escape and warn the JL and inform Superman he had a son.

    I can't say I would've seen that coming :sweat:.

    Probably a good thing Lois would have either passed away or be too old for it to matter...

    2/26: 20/20 hindsight, that scene of Kal-El waking up from the nightmare/memory fragment was suggestive...

    It would be ripe for old Bruce telling Superman his secret son turned out better. lol.

    4/3: There was a pitch for a Zatanna show but it never got off the ground. Paul Dini shared a piece of art from it and admitted he reused some if its ideas on Justice League Action.

    A Zatanna cartoon would've been pretty fun, and I can see Dini pushing for that. Maybe someday we could get that as a web-series or something :).

    And I agree about it starring Lacey Chabert, Yojimbo :anime:.

    Shannon Tindle posted on Instagram some designs for a Super Friends project from a few years ago, that never got off the ground. Apparently Bruce Timm was also involved.

    Here are Bizarro, Batzarro and Batman.

    Feels like there's been a lot of attempts at doing a Super Friends revival in some form.

    I do quite like the art style for these designs :).

    4/14: I remember something about Tindle and the Garcia-Lopez style...<checks website>

    Yes, it was back on April 12, 2013. Then Storyboard Artist Shannon Tindle revealed she was briefly hired to do work with Bruce Timm on a Justice League movie in 2012. Timm wanted a graphic interpretation of Jose Luis Garcia-Lopez's DC Comics work from the 1970s. Unfortunately, they decided not to do the project less than 24 hours after Tindle agreed to do it. However, Timm wanted to see what she would do with the characters so they let her work for a week anyway doing exploratory artwork.

    7/26: In an interview, Lester revealed around the time of TNBA, they talked about adapting a comic called Nightfall that detailed Dick's transition from Robin to Nightwing.
