The official announcement of the “Young Justice” animated series first hit the wire back in April, with Cartoon Network revealing plans to kick off the animated series featuring a team of young heroes from the DC universe during the 2010-2011 season. During this year’s New York Comic Con, fans got their first look at the series, courtesy of a six-minute extended trailer that debuted during the show.
If you weren’t able to catch the trailer during NYCC, don’t worry — because now you can watch it exclusively here on Splash Page.
Premiering on November 26 at 7 PM Eastern, “Young Justice” will begin with a one-hour adventure.
When the series was first announced, the team’s roster was said to include Robin, Superboy, Artemis, Kid Flash, Miss Martian and Aqualad. It’s interesting to note that Green Arrow protege Artemis and the alien shape-shifter Miss Martian don’t appear in the trailer, though Speedy (Green Arrow’s former sidekick) has a big role.
“Young Justice” is executive produced by Sam Register (“Batman: The Brave and the Bold”) alongside producers Greg Weisman (“The Spectacular Spider-Man”) and Brandon Vietti (“The Batman”).
Comic fans will likely recognize the title of the show as a reference to the 1998 “Young Justice” comic book series that ran for 55 issues and was created by Todd DeZago and Todd Nauck (though the majority of the series was written by Peter David). Of the television series’ roster, two characters from the comic appear to have been omitted: Wonder Girl and Secret.
