“It was really fun to get back with the old characters again,” McDuffie told MTV News during the Los Angeles premiere of “Justice League: Crisis on Two Earths.” “To have a budget like this, to have talented directors, story board artist and musicians and the great actors we had who were able to take what was good about the old show to an entirely new level. You’ve never seen superhero action like this in any kind of animated film. It’s just amazing.”
McDuffie also revealed that he will be writing two additional DC animated movies, following the previously announced “Batman: Under The Red Hood” by Judd Winick.
“I’ve written two more [animated] movies,” said McDuffie. “I can’t say what they are, although I’m dying to say what they are. They’re really cool. [Warner Brothers Animation] kind of likes to announce just the next [animated film] to keep focused, but I think people are going to be pretty excited.”
When asked about his current animation and comic projects, McDuffie replied “We’re moving towards our series finale of ’Ben 10: Alien Force’, which will be followed by the series premiere of ’Ben 10: Ultimate Alien.’ I [also] owe Marvel a pitch and I hope that offer is still open — because I’m so late. But we got a big, big order on ’Ben 10’ and it pretty much killed my free time.”
McDuffie also offered his opinion on yesterday’s announcement regarding the elevation of Geoff Johns and Jim Lee to chief creative officer and co-publisher, respectively.
“They’re both smart guys who love comics and love DC comics. I can’t imagine DC in any better hands.”
“Justice League: Crisis on Two Earths” will be released on DVD and Blu-ray on February 23.
