Dark Matters interview

Tanner Kling just contacted me and asked me what holes he wanted me to fill in for him. Awesome. Put your questions below. I'll also be asking questions of the whole Dark Matters team: Tanner Kling (director/producer), Chris Hanada (producer), and Zach Craley (writer). Gimme some good questions to pick from! :) I'll be sending questions on Sunday afternoon, August 2. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 17:40, 24 July 2015 (EDT)

  • In Dark Matters, Part 1, Quentin asks Phoebe if "mom knew", but it is latter revealed that they are half-siblings and that it is Phoebe's mother who died recently. Where are Quentin's mother and their father? -Lөvөl 02:35, 25 July 2015 (EDT)
  • Will all the "This is my ___ attempt" videos be released as April Clifton's was? -Lөvөl 02:35, 25 July 2015 (EDT)
  • Who's idea was it to premiere heroes Reborn on the day a asteroid is suppose to hit earth? (Good Idea) --*Heroes*United* (talk) 02:34, 27 July 2015 (EDT)
  • In addition to helping us pick out who some of the minor guest stars are (the "Guys", for example), would it be possible to know the names of the Nigerian and Moroccan guys according to the script, as well as whether the guitarist and the Asian girl have names? --Radicell (talk) 14:47, 27 July 2015 (EDT)
    • (Specifically the Moroccan guy because I'm not sure if "Assadasan" is a real name.) --Radicell (talk) 12:53, 28 July 2015 (EDT)
  • Will Dark Matters be available outside of the app? -Lөvөl 13:35, 28 July 2015 (EDT)
  • What does the 13 in "Odessa 13" refer to? -Lөvөl 13:35, 28 July 2015 (EDT)
    • Where do you see "Odessa 13"? -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 21:04, 29 July 2015 (EDT)
      • "Odessa 13 Productions/ Tanner Kling" is in the résumés of several people including Michael Cox and Carlos Pinder, it is also used in the productions currently filming lists. -Lөvөl 23:30, 29 July 2015 (EDT)
  • Are there going to more HeroTruther videos? -Lөvөl 13:35, 28 July 2015 (EDT)
  • When Aly said that there was a guy in her home town who could breathe underwater, was she talking about Alex Woolsly? If so, can we assume that he has "come out" as an evo as well? -Kon (talk) 00:29, 31 July 2015 (EDT)
  • This question is less about Dark Matters and more about the original webisodes you guys did for Heroes back when it was on TV. Now that they're no longer available on the NBC website, is it possible that you guys could upload them to the Retrofit website, or perhaps a Youtube channel, so we could all watch them again? -Kon (talk) 01:30, 31 July 2015 (EDT)

Questions asked but not published

Hi, y'all. I asked some other questions than what's published. I didn't think they were worthy of the main article, but I thought I'd share the info since it's good info. Here's what didn't make it in the interview:

Ryan: We really enjoyed the viral videos on HeroTruther's YouTube page! Any chance any others will be released?

Tanner: Not at this point. Though it would have been great to work in new videos that tied into what was going on during Heroes: Reborn.

Ryan: A simpler question, but related to the last one. What are the names of the Moroccan guy, the Nigerian guy, and the little Asian girl in those intro videos?


  • Stephanie Wei

Ryan: In Dark Matters, Part 1, Quentin asks Phoebe "Did mom know?" Later Phoebe says that Quentin is her half brother and Phoebe's mother died recently. Where are Quentin's mother and their father?

Tanner: Well, that there is the mystery isn't it? Always leave some loose ends right? Something to explore later or ask Zach...

Ryan: Some of the cast and crew have called (like here and here) this production "Odessa 13". Is that something different, or was that a working title? Where did that title come from?

Tanner: "Odessa 13" was the production entity we set up for production in Canada. We wanted to avoid any confusion with main unit and therefore avoided any use of "Heroes", "Reborn" etc. There was also a show in production in Toronto called "Dark Matter", so we went with "Odessa 13"

Ryan: In Part 2, Aly says that there's that there was a guy from her hometown who could breathe underwater, whom Quentin calls "Fish Boy". Any connection to Alex Woolsly, Claire's love interest who could breathe underwater?

<no answer -- I plan to send some other questions to Zach Craley, including this one... Any other questions you'd like me to ask?>

Ryan: We know that eclipses are very closely tied to evos and their powers. But what about asteroids? And were you aware that on the day Heroes Reborn is supposed to air (September 24), that the asteroid 2012 TT5 is supposed to make an extremely close approach to the earth? :)

Tanner: Great trivia - I had no idea.

Just thought I'd share! -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 22:47, 20 August 2015 (EDT)

  • Loved Tanner's use of "slow-burn". Also, at least we got "Oluwole Adeyemi" correct! --Radicell (talk) 10:45, 21 August 2015 (EDT)
