Young Justice Cartoon in Development [Updated]
[show_avatar email@example.com align=right] This is an unconfirmed rumor from a post found here. The poster writes:
WB has 3 NEW series on their slate, Mystery INC- the new Scooby show, Young Justice, and Bruce Timms CG Green Lantern for 4Q 2011. ALL for Cartoon Network, who originally passed on the new Thundercats. Both Mattel and Hasbro got the series pitch and passed on the toys for couple different reasons. “Lack of cool tech” the big one. But Ban Dai did a hard core play for the rights. They weren’t interested in a “Classic” adult line, and thought that the new take on the series was something very different for the toy aisles. Which is what Mattel and Hasbro were afraid of.
I could go on and on about this… as I DO know A LOT about it
It’s Sorta THE Young Justice. They will be going out with this BIG TIME at Comic Con. From what I saw, it’s Martian Girl, Aqualad, Nightwing, Impulse, Arrowette, and Connor Kent. The poster gives me the tone that it’s a cross between JLU and TT. I liked the look a lot. It’s not quite Timm-style, but it’s not All Murikami’d out like Teen Titans.
The kids were the focus of the poster, in the center, but The JL was behind them.
I hate to be skeptical, but this sounded dubious at first. Why pair Nightwing with Young Justice, instead of Robin? Why include Aqualad, instead of the more modern Aquagirl? And wouldn’t it make more sense to do another version of TEEN TITANS, which now has name recognition?
A few new bits popped up, however. This looks like it may actually be happening….
Actress Stephanie Lemelin posted on her WordPress blog that she was “beyond thrilled to announce” that she was cast in the “new animated series, YOUNG JUSTICE LEAGUE.” She added that she will be “voicing the character of Arrowette (see ridiculously hot avatar below!!! um, could I love her anymore?)”. The post has since been deleted, but you can see the “hot avatar” below:
Also, this popped up on twitter:
The twitter poster states: “This is what the kartoon looks like, AQUALAD for Young Justice league I read for 2nite TR”
