Animated Young Justice?

Last week, the Titans Tower Monitor Room reported on a rumor, based on a message board post, of a Young Justice cartoon in development. It seemed far-fetched at the time, but more information surfaced, including possible character designs. (Note: the Monitor room moved to a new site today. It looks like everything’s been transferred, but here’s the original post from last Thursday, for completeness’ sake.)

Yesterday, Bleeding Cool picked up the story, and today it’s on Blog@Newsarama, MTV Splash Page, etc.

Reportedly the show will be Young Justice League (trading on name recognition?) and will feature Martian Girl (is that Miss Martian?), Aqualad, Nightwing (is Robin tied to the Batman license again?), Impulse, Arrowette, and Connor Kent as teenagers.

Honestly? I’ll believe it when I see it. But an animated Impulse would be great fun to watch.

Interestingly enough, Impulse was part of the original pitch to Kids WB! for the 2001 Justice League cartoon. I’d been under the impression that this footage was hard to find, but apparently it’s an easter egg on the “Paradise Lost” DVD.

Update (April): The show has been officially announced.

    Hey Kelson, that JL Pitch with Impulse and Robin and Cyborgirl is also on the JUSTICE LEAGUE season one DVD; From my site:

    “On the “Justice League: The Complete First Season DVD” release, an extra shows the original network pitch for the Justice League series. “Justice League: The First Mission: Watch this exciting “Never Seen Before” promo which helped Justice League leap into action.” This footage showed Robin, Impulse and a girl Cyborg as part of a Justice League team, which also included Superman, Wonder Woman, Batman, Green Lantern, J’onn J’onzz, and Hawkgirl.”
