Still Hope For YOUNG JUSTICE?
Young Justice voice actors Khary Payton, Phil Lamarr and Dee Bradley Baker were joined by show producer and writer Greg Weisman at Denver Comic Con this past weekend. A few secrets were withheld in hopes of more episodes.
Attending Denver Comic Con this past weekend were a few superhero animation stalwarts of recent Young Justice fame Payton, Lamarr, Baker and Weisman. The panel started off discussing Teen Titans Go! but that notion was loudly booed by the audience. Speaking on Young Justice's cancellation, Payton expressed dismay stating that he was looking forward to voicing the New God terror, Darkseid. Speaking on fan angst over the show's ending, Weisman stated that Young Justice didn't end on the text book definition of a cliffhanger as the show ended with the main threat of The Light and The Reach dealt with. However, Weisman declined to discuss any intended future storylines out of hopes that the show could be revived. He specifically declined to discuss the fate of Wally West stating that would be a "spoiler."
As far as helping bring the show back, Weisman stated that fans needed to support the MERCHANDISE particularly the trade of the tie-in comic book, the upcoming video game Young Justice: Legacy and the official soundtrack to the series. "Honestly, they don't care if no one watches the show as long as the toys sell," echoed Lamarr.
Fans may remember that crowdfund upstart SMGO.TV launched a campaign to save Young Justice through fan funding and they've managed to collect $37.5k thus far with 61 days left in their campaign. However, unlike KickStarter, there's no target goal listed for just how much is needed to guarantee another season.
