IGN/NYCC '09: Batman's Brave Future

Posted by Bob Tilley Saturday, 7 February 2009

IGN Comics was at The Brave and the Bold panel, which revealed several upcoming DC guest stars, as a new episode is debuted.

Actor Phil Morris (known for his role as Martin Manhunter on Smallville) will be playing Jonah Hex in an upcoming episode. He explained that this version of Hex has a funny reaction to Batman because "he doesn't get the whole Bat getup thing. He's a very real kind of character and Batman to him seems almost foppish." Morris said a lot of humor came from seeing Batman dealt with "in a way people don't [usually] see Batman dealt with. Batman to him is a little bit silly." Morris did a quick example of his gruff Jonah Hex voice, saying "There's a little Sam Elliot in there and some other guys."

The conversation turned to Aquaman and Jelenic noted that while the show is aimed at kids, "you're trying to write something that makes you laugh. Aquaman started sort of serious but kept getting pushed." The audience laughed when he revealed that Aquaman "is depressed in the next episode."

Tucker recalled that originally, he didn't intend to make Aquaman as broad, until it was suggested to him to make the character like a god, a la Hercules. Said Tucker, "I thought, 'Wow… Steve Reeves. He just looked pompous.' That gave me a visual and most of my ideas cane from the visual and then I can come up with a personality." He said once he had the image of how Aquaman would look the rest, "really came fast." He noted that they still took a little while to figure the character out completely, recalling, "The first script had a lot of fish puns that didn't make the show, thank god." Tucker said one important aspect to Aquaman is, "he doesn't know that people thought he was lame. In his own mind, he's a hero. I think he needs his own series myself, now."

We were then treated to a an early screening of the February 27th episode of the show, called "Deep Cover Batman!" Without giving too much away, I'll say that this episode deals with parallel Earths and Batman encountering the Red Hood – a character who obviously has a lot of significance in the DC Universe. The way the Red Hood and his allies and enemies are portrayed is very satisfying and the crowd reacted strongly to the episode, which is part one of a two-parter.
