Breaking News: James Tucker is the new Supervising Producer of all DC Animated projects effective immediately as the previous Supervising Producer, Bruce Timm (one of the architects of the DC Animated Universe alongside Alan Burnett, Paul Dini, and later Dwayne McDuffie), is stepping down to work on other projects.
Mr. Tiucker’s no wide-eyed newcomer to DC Comics animated media. He has worked on numerous titles. He directed five episodes of Static Shock (including the very first episode) as well as episodes of Batman Beyond (which gave him an Emmy) and Legion of Super Heroes, which he also produced. Other producing credits include Justice League/Justice League Unlimited and Batman: The Brave and the Bold.
Mr. Tucker is also the director and producer of the upcoming DC Animated film Superman Unbound.
I think DC Animation is in good hands for the foreseeable future.
I am really excited to see what he does next. Like, will he start his own studio? Will he work with other comic book companies adapting their films. A Bruce Timm inspired Umbrella Academy? Or Casanova? Or PHONOGRAM? OH GOD THE POSSIBILITIES ARE ENDLESS. I feel like the Marvel Animation offices are having a fucking party.
