DC Comics has posted an interview between DC Collectibles and Justice League: War producer James Tucker and designer Phil Bourassa. In it, they discuss the process for creating the new DC Animated Universe, the characters and which figures they want to see. Here’s an excerpt:
With Superman, Green Lantern, Wonder Woman, The Flash and Shazam! receiving the action figure treatment, are there other characters from the animated universe you’d like to see in the action figure form?
JT: From Justice League: War and The Flashpoint Paradox, I’d love to see Ocean Master, Flashpoint Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Martha Wayne Joker, Yo-Yo and Cyborg. From Son of Batman: Damian, Killer Croc, Ra’s Al Ghul and Deathstroke. And from Assault on Arkham, definitely King Shark and Harley.
PB: The Villains of course! An interesting thing about these movies is it seems like we have the most fun coming up with the look of the bad guys. I think that’s partly because when we are drawing the almost godlike icons from the Justice League, there is less wiggle room with how we can legitimately depict them, and if we deviate too much from the traditions, we are probably doing them wrong. The heroes kind of have to be perfect and so there is less room to play. The villains on the other hand can be more pushed and generally have a wider range of silhouettes and shapes that work. Their looks are not so set in stone, so we tend to come up with some pretty fun and original stuff for them. It would be cool to see figures based on our version of the Parademons, Desaad, Deathstroke or Ra’s al Ghul.
