As tremendous as those shows are in their own right and by their own rules, the foundation of this production team was built upon stories more grounded in the dramatic than straight up kid’s fare and, rightfully so, Warner Brothers along with longtime producer Bruce Timm saw fit to offer a possible solution with “DC Universe Animated Original Movies.”
Enacted with 2007’s “Superman: Doomsday,” this line of home video releases culminates in the participation of several original influences from the DCAU including Timm, voice director Andrea Romano and frequent collaborators Alan Burnett, Glen Murakami and current participants such as Sam Register and Duane Capizzi.
"I hope you understand the trouble I've gone through to arrange this little get together here. A lot of money. A lof of dead meat."
I don’t know; maybe it’s all residual and I had just been building up all this time as far as story after story feeling pressured to fall back on the Joker that I was ready for another rogue to get the limelight.
I also love the approach to Ra's Al Ghul's mountain based citadel; it fits the longevity of the character and is wonderfully rendered.
“Why? I’m not talking about killing Penguin or Scarecrow or Dent. I’m talking about him. Just him. And doing it because…because he took me away from you.”
What's interesting here is that in the context of the scene, there's a moment when Jason encourages Bruce for them to get going on patrol.
Looking at it within the context of what happens to Jason and how Batman feels about him and their bond before and after his death, one can almost interpret it as if it's actually the ghost of Jason Todd. But not just Jason Todd; rather the Jason that he wants to remember. The young child with a bright future, uncompromised in his youthful innocence with becoming Robin for the first time.
It's as if it's an apparition Bruce might see nightly. Just as he's suiting up, the ghostly figure of Jason leaps into action with metaphorically as he holds the memory of the boy in his heart.
