When the news broke yesterday that Bruce Timm was stepping down from overseeing all of DC Comics animated movies, we were reassured that he wasn't leaving the company. That proved true this morning when it was confirmed that Timm will be overseeing a new Justice League cartoon.
This is good news, but I can't help but wonder why - with Warner Bros. unable to get a team together to produce a decent script for the live-action Justice League movie - Timm hasn't been tapped for that role. Granting that Timm's background is in cartooning and animation, he's proven time and again that he knows the characters and can get a team together. He could produce a live-action Justice League movie even if someone else directed it.
