Bruce Timm Talks Superman Doomsday

    September 10, 2007

Bruce Timm on adapting the 'Superman: Doomsday' story from comics to animation:"It's hard to talk about it without spoiling the whole movie. The comics was this huge sprawling story that took like 2-1/2 years of comic-book time spread out over three monthly books with a bunch of different creative teams doing the book. That's both a good and a bad thing."The good thing was that it's not as coherent a story -- and this is not to slam the original comics -- (as) New Frontier, which was created by one person and it was intended to be a beginning, middle and end. "Death of Superman" was a really wildly serialized story, like I said, with all these diffeent creative teams, so it tangeted off like in a bunch of different directions."It was pretty easy to read the book and go, "OK, we don't need that, we don't need that. we don't need that." Even the main thrust of some of the storyline, the big climax of the comic, we felt it was OK for the comic, it doesn't really cinematically and we need to come up with something better -- or something more cinematic. It was always a challenge to go one step beyond the comic was and in, some places, make a left turn from what the comic was. "Click for more from Timm
