Bruce Timm Steps Down as Producer

Bruce Timm, the man behind "Batman: The Animated Series", "Batman Beyond", "Justice League", and all of the DC Universe animated movies so far, is stepping down from his role as producer. Voices From Krypton is reporting that "The Dark Knight Returns Part 2" was Timm's final film as a producer, and will now focus his energies on his own projects. Taking over for Bruce Timm will be James Tucker, who has worked with Timm on "Batman Beyond" and "Justice League," and was also the producer of "Batman: The Brave and the Bold."


“Bruce had done a lot since Justice League Unlimited ended,” explains Tucker, “so it’s been quite a haul. I can’t speak for him, but I think going out on Dark Knight Returns was a special thing for him. If he was going to make the break, that seemed like a good time.”


“I can’t go into specifics,” he says, “but I have a feeling when we announce our next slate of movies, people are going to be very excited because we will be using Batman, Superman and Justice League as a gateway to exposing other characters.”
