Greg Weisman, producer of Kids' WB!'s The Spectacular Spider-Man, told The Continuum he has long-term plans for the series.

"We have plans for Season 3, 4 and 5," Weisman told The Continuum. "We don't have pick-ups for them yet. My hope is to do this forever."

Does he have an endpoint for the series in mind?

"I have an endpoint for the TV series," he said. "I would love to do 65 episodes that took him from the start of his junior year to graduation in his senior year. That is my overall goal for the series.

"But I hope that beyond that we do direct-to-DVDs that we deal with his college years, as well. It's a joke, but I'm not kidding. I would be very happy doing this for a long, long time."

Carl Ellsworth, who is working on the script for the Y: The Last Man movie, said his goal is make a translation for the property from comic book to film.

"We are taking those great aspects of the comic book and grounding them," Ellsworth said last weekend at Wizard World Los Angeles. "We have to embrace it and make it viable for more of a mass audience."

Y: The Last Man co-creator Brian K. Vaughan wrote the original draft of the script for the movie, which is being directed by D.J. Caruso.

"It was a draft they sent me," Ellsworth said. "I had yet to read the comic book. I thought it was a lot of fun. And when I read comics, I thought it was true to it.

"There were basic things we had to address. In a movie, you're always looking for a motor. In the comic books, he is looking girlfriend, but we felt there needed to be more of a dramtic push."

Conroy provided the voice of Batman for Batman: The Animated Series and Justice League/Justice League Unlmited.

"Anytime we initiate an animated Batman project, 'Will Kevin Conroy voice Batman?' is the first question we hear from fans," exective producer Bruce Timm said.

He's got the voice, he's got the acting chops, and he's absolutely the best man for the job."

Parminder Nagra supplies the voice of Cassandra, a mystical Indian woman who teaches Bruce Wayne to endure and manage his pain. David McCallum takes on the role of loyal servant Alfred. George Newbern and Alanna Ubach also join the cast.
