[[wysiwyg_imageupload:6440:]]Seems the departure of Bruce Timm from Warner Bros. may have been exaggerated as we learn the creator behind some of DC Comics' most popular animated movies will be returning.
Gary Miereanu who handles the publicity for Warners Animation let loose a batch of tweets that confirms Bruce Timm will be back in a very big way and is continuing his work at Warner Bros.
Bruce Timm is stepping away from the DCU Animated Original Movies for a bit ... but he'll be back - in a very big way.
He's not going far, and he'll be back
Bruce Timm continues his amazing work at Warner Bros. He's only taking a break from DCU films to develop more of the stuff you love.
Honestly, he never left. Green Lantern Animated series ... The Flaming C ... Dark Knight Returns. And something new and cool
The something "new and cool" referred to could be a new Justice League animated series as Bruce Timm was responsible for developing the 2001 version. Or perhaps it's a new Superman animated series set to launch in conjunction with the 75th anniversary and the Man of Steel movie.
Or could it actually be referring to Bruce Timm working on the Justice League movie?
Reading into Miereanu's tweets it could be taken that Bruce Timm is continuing his amazing work at Warner Bros and that he is only taking a break from DCU films.
As many fans will attest to, the DC animated movies have been nothing short of spectacular, blowing away their Marvel animated movies competition, at a time when Disney and Marvel have been doing similar to DC with their own live-action films.
It almost seems like a no-brainer that Warners would go with an in-house asset with somebody who has already had success adapting their DC Comics properties to film - albeit animated - but still quite a success nonetheless.
Update: Cosmic Book News has confirmed with Gary Miereanu that Bruce Timm is returning to the Animated side of things.
