Details on a proposed Superman Family animated series – Newsarama

  • Storyboard artist/director Vinton Heuck (Young Justice, Harley Quinn, The Batman, The Avengers: Earth’s Mightiest Heroes) pitched the series with Sean Galloway
  • Heuck – “I drew some pitch art that was basically an animation friendly version of Superman: Rebirth, with Jon (a.k.a. Superboy) front and center.My angle was to combine these new storylines with a lighter tone inspired by all those crazy Silver Age stories I read as a young lad. Seeing for instance how Jon and his mom Lois would deal with his dad being turned into a Super-Merman was something I dearly wanted to see. There are so many dark, adult-themed DC stories I felt the company needed something that got back to its roots and was made for kids. The people at Warner Bros. Animation liked it and had me try out a bunch of talented artists to help design the look of it, and settled on Sean Galloway for me to pair off with and develop the final pitch for DC. Unfortunately, they passed, but I’m hopeful the success of Shazam! will help open the door for more fun, kid-friendly stories.”
  • Kong Kenan, Jon Kent, Damian Wayne, Mr. Mzyzptlk, John Henry and Natasha Irons/Steel
