During the Batman: Brave And The Bold panel, creators Brandon Vietti and Greg Weissman got a chance to show off some character designs and footage from their upcoming animated series Young Justice, as well as dish on a few of the details.

We saw the footage, whose animation style resembles previous animated DC efforts like Superman/Batman: Public Enemies, and takes a more grounded and realistic approach to the DC Universe.  The Young Justice team will operate as something of an undercover unit designed to combat the increasinly efficient supervillains, as the Justice League's high profile prevents them from stopping more and more criminal

Here's what they were willing to tell us:

  • The series takes place within the 50 DC Multiverses, specifically Earth-16, at an early stage in DC Continuity
  • Sixteen of the regular Justice League members will appear, with Bruce Greenwood voicing Batman, Phil LaMarr voicing Aquaman, Alan Tudyk as Green Arrow, and Rob Lowe as Captain Marvel
  • The core Young Justice team will consist of Robin/Dick Grayson (Jesse McCartney), Kid Flash/Wally West (Jason Spizak), Aqualad (Kari Peyton), Superboy/Connor Kent (Nolan North), Miss Martian (Danica McKellar), and Artemis (Stephani Lemelin)
  • SPOILER ALERT!  In a twist, the creators have decided to name Black Manta as Aqualad's father!
  • Several cold-themed villains appeared in the footage, namely Captain Cold, Ice, and Icicle.

No longer interested

Yep. Failed. Good game, folks, looks like another cartoon I won't watch due to the DC bureaucracy.

WTF!?

"Robin/**** Grayson" You're kidding right? In Young Justice, it's supposed to be Tim Drake as Robin... Don't tell me they spoiled it already!?
