    Here's a thought... What if Black Manta IS Orm? The black suit could be a suit that keeps him alive, kind of like Darth Vader's does in the Star Wars movies. Orm's body would have been quite broken after falling down that revene...

    No matter what Black Manta's origins are in the comics, in the animated continuity I think this would be cool... :)

    Any reason why Waverider is hanging around? Could Monarch be among the League?

    I belive, in the Once and Future thing part 2 alot of Batmans Beyond Future will be changed, to fit into the current JL and Jlu stories. Return of the joker might not even ever happend, Maybe Terry might be older when he appears. Future Superman might have some of the white hairs taken away, as it is becomeing clair that Superman cannot die of natural causes. Thier might be some other changes, the enitire future Unlimted League might be all new!

    Yes, I think it will be either a Batman Batman fight or...Batman vs. an alternate future Drake gone Monarch. If this episode features the Batman Beyond future that got changed because of the JLU in Part One, then the ramifications could be the same in any alternate reality, Drake goes bad in one way or another. If we are right about that clue about the villain liking Batarangs it's either going to be an alternate Wayne or Drake. Since in the beginning of TNBA, Drake used a batarang as a security blanket and self-defense before becoming Robin.

    Good point...bt did say he never liked that Oceanmaster name. Yes, I think you could be onto something. The comics origin really was convoluted after awhile, first jealous genius with autism, then demon manta then cured yet evil genius.

    See above. That's one story we are looking at for a Monarch type villain. But if to say that Waverider's story will be explored on JLU is another mystery. Because it is also possible that Waverider was a handful of heroes that bt just wanted to see onscreen. WHile others he definitely has plans for. As long as bt puts a spin on it.

    Well I'm not familiar with The Batman series but isn't it in the first years of Batman's career? So technically, I would think it's ok for Timm to use Drake since it's most likely if any Robin on The Batman will appear it'll be Grayson.

    There aren't a lot of bat characters being used on The Batman but are still off limits. None of Batman's supporting cast can appear on a Timm show (Alfred,Nightwing ,Batgirl, Robin etc.). But Im think the Batman Beyond characters may be fair game but a majority of those (Like Commissioner Barbara Gordon and Tim Drake) may be off limits as well.

    True, if it's Batman Beyond bat characters in their civilain identites, it might be allowed. More off if the villain if it is Drake is using a different name. If "this little piggy" was any indication, I doubt any bat supporting cast will appear even in cameo form. But I kind of want to see another Batman Batman showdown. Not because of the ensuing fight but the psychological one as well.

    I saw this on the main page and its a definitely a sweet interview. He basically confirms that we'll be seeing the Suicide Squad (!) next season and he builds upon past implications about Darkseid's return when he says that Mr. Miracle will be appearing multiple times. Its also great to see that they realize that Green Arrow, The Question (glad to see he'll be playing a big part) and Vixen were successful so we'll be seeing more of them. McDuffie also does an awesome job hyping "Once and Future Thing" which is going to be so fraggin' awesome.

    The thing that really caught my attention was this part:

    I wonder what those things are...maybe Brimstone in "Initiation" has something to do with it? He could also be speaking about "Hawk and Dove" or past DCAU episodes.

    Somewhat off-topic: I'm really looking forward to The Road to Hell. I wonder when its coming out.

    That was a nice interveiw. The fact that Michael Rosenbaum will be playing several characters almost certainly means he will be Deadshot as a member of The Suicide Squad ( I hope) I cant wait to see who's on the animated version of the team.

    Dwayne McDuffie did a good job of making that season finally sound really good which I already knew it would be. Its very heavily anticipated. I wonder how Static haters will react when he makes his first official JL appearence.

    Im certainly glad we will be getting more of the conspericy, the Batman and the Diana flirt thing,Amanda Waller, Luthor, Vixen and The Question (with a big part). Captain Marvel will be a great new addtion to the animated universe as well im sure.

    I wonder if the Huntress and Black Canary ep will be called "Birds of Prey" it would be a nice nood to the comic.

    Only sad note: No animated Crisis :sad:. I always wanted to see the Anti-monitor introduced.Oh well , everything else sounds good though.

    Glad to see we got more writer's names, multiple episodes with Miracle, BC and Vixen and bascially confirming the Suicide Squad but everything else was already revealed over the months. Argh, can't believe McDuffie was teasing with the old guy reference when talking about the upcoming season finale. I'm also happy to see that the Legion of Superheroes are still on the creative teams minds.

    I swear I read somewhere that a cartoon based on the Legion was supposed to spin out of that Superman episode that they appeared on. I know it was brought up a few times, but eventually dismissed. Anyone have anymore specifics?

    There was talk on something to that affect I read but it apparently didn't pan out which doesn't disappoint me I was never a fan of The Legion Of Superheroes. I don't mind a guest appearance but I never got into that team.I do have a Wizard article at home about it so if I find it I'll post what it said.

    I actually preferred the modern day L.E.G.I.O.N. to them. Now that's a team I wouldn't mind seeing. They were a team composed of different alien races that were birthed during the Invasion crossover. Lobo was even a member at one time.

    Supposedly, Alan Burnett pitched Supergirl, Legion and Aquaman series after Batman Beyond, but WB passed on all of those, as well as a pitch by Dini and Alex Ross for a Captain Marvel series. If none of those flew with WB, I can't see any other spinoffs happening. Those four were easily the most compelling possibilities.

    On the other hand, the Legion would probably only work now if it was handled like Teen Titans, because Batman Beyond and the Metropolis of "modern day" Superman already look so futuristic that the 30th Century would have to get a real radical rethink to be compelling in the DCAU after JLU.

    various incarnations of "legion" have been pitched, a few times....i'm kinda surprised it hasn't happened yet, honestly....."teenage STAR TREK with superheroes" is a high-concept pitch that practically sells itself....it'll probably happen one of these days....
