    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.
