    I must be missing something because a number of DC cartoons were getting screwed over, and I don't know why WB would purposefully do that.

    Cartoon Network operates of itself and isn't directly managed by Time Warner. The mishandling of DC properties is on Cartoon Network proper. But that doesn't mean that they solely own DC properties. They don't, Warner Bros does. WB/DC can do whatever they want with Young Justice

    Good question. Wonder if Weisman and Vietti can answer that or that's goes into NDA territory. In the least, probably needed someone from CN to sign off before they went forward on the show.

    If I remember this correctly, Cartoon Network does not own Young Justice. Warner Bros. Animation created the show with Brandon Vietti and Greg Weisman as the producers and shopped it to CN. Apologies in advance if I have this wrong.

    Weisman did elaborate a little about it. Seasons 1 and 2 were funded by Mattel and CN. Mostly Mattel. But when they pulled out, CN couldn't fund it alone. And at the time of November 2016, he said Warner Bros. was funding Outsiders for now. He was careful to say they weren't "backers". I recall the talked a little more in the years before Outsiders was announced but I don't have the link on hand.

    Minor point, but Brandon Vietti is editing animatics for episode 16

    Hmm, Vietti mentioned working on animatics for episode 16. Perhaps this recording was for 20 or 21 (in July they did 10, in October they did 15-16).

    That reminded me of the time there was a similar post and I thought Basco was going to be on GL:TAS but it turned out to be that Trapped in Time DTV.

    Did we ever figure out what that Josh Keaton/Jason Spisak recording was for? Because it feels like we were never able to solve that mystery :confused:.

    Stephanie Lemelin teasing? This isn't confirmed to be YJ but it very possibly is.

    I guess it might have been. They may have been in one of the Lego movies before, though I can't think of one off the top of my head where they both voiced characters.

    I just remembered we were speculating a possible Green Lantern/Flash cartoon and that never seemed to go anywhere...
    I think it probably is. Stephanie Lemelin's VA work is fairly small so I think it's likely Young Justice related.

    Man is it just me or does it feel like its taking forever for Season 3 to come out? Even something like a 1 minute trailer would be nice at this point.

    I almost feel like they announced its return too early. Is it still slated to debut by Fall of this year? If it doesn't come out till 2019 that's ridiculous long wait.

    The announcement was premature, but needed. Greg and crew wanted to give us fans an "atta-boy" for helping resurrect it.

    It can't be helped. The new season is for the new streaming service; naturally, we can't see the show until the service is ready to be rolled out.

    I'm thinking it was the Lego Cosmic Clash movie, where Josh voiced Green Lantern while Jason voiced a pirate character.

    How about Patrick Stewart as Highfather?

    Weisman was asked about Stewart before and he said he is expensive.
