DC Animated Movie Update: Bruce Timm Not Directing 'JLA: Gods & Monsters' And Other Goofs

Looks like there's been some mistakes in previous SDCC DC Animated Reports, and DC Supervising Producer James Tucker went to Twitter to correct all the errors.

So during SDCC, we reported on all the DC Animated Movie News that broke. Thing most everything that was reported has now been proven wrong and this reporter was wrong to jump on the bandwagon and feeding the flames of what was said. Though even this reporter questioned the authenticity (before writing it off of DC Animated doing a "loose" adaptation like its predecessor) of how the heck a "Court of Owls" be involved in a movie called Batman vs. Robin, which never happened in the story. 

Thankfully James Tucker, supervising producer of DC Animated movies clarifies it all:





So there you have it from the man himself: Bruce Timm isn't coming back to write/direct JLA: Gods & Monsters, instead Sam Liu (All-Star Superman, Batman/Superman: Public Enemies) is directing and Alan Burnett (Batman: The Animated Series, The Batman) writing it. Plus Batman vs. Robin, is a sequel to Son of Batman (which wasn't surprising) but it sounds (not actual fact, but it speculation) as if it'll continue lightly using various elements of Grant Morrison's comic book run.

Though this begs the question HOW the heck did Bruce Timm and "Court of Owls" get confused in this at all? Not to mention as someone mentions in the first tweet responding to Tucker's. Why didn't this get addressed by someone at DC or Warner Bros. sooner instead of TWO DAYS LATER after the panel? Or an official press release or tweet for that matter?

That just raises more questions, though and even an additional one.  Like should this reporter just attend SDCC, and get the job done right himself? But I don't think Zechs Invades SDCC would be a good thing. Nah... Nope never in a million years and shouldn't ever happen. Like ever!
