New to DC Universe is a "behind-the-scenes" docu-series of the making of Outsiders, hosted by Whitney Moore, who also voices Courtney Whitmore this season. It features interviews with Greg and Brandon, other writers, the animators, voice actors, and post-production crew on the new season.
I know some fans will want to watch it, but don't have DC Universe. If it's okay, I'll update this thread weekly with whatever new information is revealed in the coming episodes.
Greg says that one of the goals this season is the return to the spy motif (of season 1). A new focus on horror this season, too. ("Putting the Boogeyman back in the shadows", as Paredes describes it);
The writer's room discuss how they keep the show grounded. For this season, they choose the unsubtle metaphor of meta-human trafficking for human trafficking going on today, but put a "sci-fi spin on it". The two-year time jump also allowed them to explore the character's relationships at that point in their lives;
Glimpse at the animatics for Artemis's graveyard showdown in "Royal We";
Episode 11 is titled "ANOTHER FREAK" (fake out title?) and is written by Mae Catt and directed by Mel Zwyer. Forager is in this episode. Per the script, that'll be a part of the fourth mini-arc this season;
Episode 10 is titled "EXCEPTIONAL HUMAN BEINGS" (another?) written by Paredes and directed by Christopher Berkeley. Batman and the Outsiders in this episode;
Nicole Dubuc talks about the atmosphere in the writer's room. Describes it as very collaborative. She will also return as Iris West-Allen in episode 11.
Brief storyboard of episode 11 (here titled "HOME FIRES") featuring Bart babysitting his cousins;
Brandon discusses worldbuilding in the series through the press, for example GBS. Greg and Brandon do a brief recap of the opening of "Eminent Threat". Interestingly, Greg says that Cat Grant is interviewing Beast Boy, instead of Courtney Whitmore as we see in the final episode;
Brandon describes the "punch line" to sell the plot of this season, and how scary it is, is how the population views the abducted metas as monsters and fears what they can do. The heroes will have to fight to change the skewed public perception of metas and the Light's victims.
FYI to everyone trying to avoid spoilers: this Tuesday episode contains major spoilers for episodes dropping next Friday, including one major character debut. So, everyone wanting to remain spoiler free should postpone that episode and probably avoid this thread.
Nah, it doesn't address the Halo spoilers. He probably has the biggest mass name recognition of any character added since the first episode (not counting blink and you miss it Jason and Damian), it's good promo.
