DIRECTOR BRANDON VIETTI TALKS TO CBR ABOUT BUTRH AND YOUNG JUSTICE

Posted by Bob Tilley Tuesday, 27 July 2010

CBR have posted an interview with Batman: Under the Red Hood director Brandon Vietti about the movie and his upcoming project Young Justice.

CBR News: Before you landed at Warner Bros. Animation, were you a fan of the DCU?

Brandon Vietti: Oh, yeah definitely. I collected "Batman" and "Detective Comics" when I was a kid. Those were my favorites, and I was a "Super Friends" guy when I was a little guy. And of course, "Batman: The Animated Series" was sort of a life-changing event for me. It was like, "Wow. This is how you can do cartoons? I didn't know that!" So that was a big inspiration for me. At first, I was trying to get a job doing an animated style much like Bruce's, in the comics, actually. I wanted to do comic for the longest time. Eventually, I just started drawing so much like Bruce, I sent my portfolio into Warner Bros. Animation on a whim and that's how I got my first gig.

Were you familiar with Red Hood's story before this project transpired?

Yes, I was. I enjoyed the comic. Again, as a Batman fan, I try to read as many of the Batman stories as I can.

What makes Red Hood different than other foes and rogues Batman has faced before?

What makes it so different for Bruce is that this isn't just another case. It's personal. A new character shows up in Gotham and challenges Batman's code of ethics and Batman's way of dealing with crime. Red Hood is this character, and as it turns out, there is more to Red Hood than meets the eye. There is a personal connection to Batman.

And while Batman is dealing with Red Hood, The Joker is lurking, too, correct?

Well, I think that most people know that this movie opens with the death of Robin at the hands of The Joker. That really is just the beginning. In this [version of the story], Joker's story works as Death, really. He's Fate, in a way. There's nothing personal about what he does. He's more of a force of nature in this story, which drives the movie, actually. Everything that happens in this movie takes place based on his actions, and then he comes into play at the end of the movie, falling into the balance between Red Hood and Batman.
