YOUNG JUSTICE Set for January 7 Launch

Although the pilot episode already debuted in November, Cartoon Network has announced that they've scheduled the proper series launch of Young Justice for January 7, 2011 at 7pm (ET, PT). Here's the series synopsis:

In Young Justice, being a teenager means proving yourself over and over - to peers, parents, teachers, mentors and, ultimately, to yourself. But what if you're not just a normal teenager? What if you're a teenage super hero? How much harder will it be to prove yourself in a world of super powers, super villains and super secrets? Are you ready to come of age in such a world? Are you ready for life or death rites of passage? Are you ready to join the ranks of the great heroes and prove you're worthy of the Justice League? That's exactly what the members of Young Justice - Robin, Aqualad, Kid Flash, Superboy, Miss Martian and Artemis - will found out ... whether they have what it takes to be a proven hero.

This all-new series is produced by Warner Bros. Animation and based upon characters from DC Comics. Sam Register (Teen Titans, Ben 10, Batman: The Brave and the Bold) is the executive producer. Brandon Vietti (Batman: Under the Red Hood, Superman Doomsday, The Batman) and Greg Weisman (Gargoyles, The Spectacular Spider-Man, W.I.T.C.H.) are the producers.



C2F Quick Hits

  • There's a micro site for the All-Star Superman movie up at Warner Video.
  • As actor Chris Hemsworth looks forward to the upcoming publicity push on Thor, he's also prepping to begin work this year on Marvel's sequel/spin-off The Avengers. He tells E! Onliine he still hasn't seen a script, but is working to keep up his Norse God physique, which means eating "my body weight in protein" (in other words, lots and lots of chicken).
  • Kevin Bacon told PhillyStyleMag.com that his role as Sebastian Shaw in X-Men: First Class doesn't involve him seeing any action. "I’ll let the younger actors do that," the 52 year-old he said. "I’m more one of those sit-in-my-chair-and-destroy-the-world type of guys."
  • The L.A. Times have posted as listing of various filming locations around town, including some for Marc Webb's 2012 3D reboot of Spider-Man.  According to the report, the production will emply seven sound stages on the Sony lot. Other locations include the Henry Fonda Theater in Hollywood, Immanuel Presbyterian Church in mid-Wilshire and various locales from South Pasadena to San Pedro to Woodland Hills. There are also to be two weeks of filming in New York.
  • Thanks to AntoBlueberry for the submission.

I can't wait for Young Justice.

Bring on the Dead!

lusciousjohnnyb 12/22/2010 7:22:41 AM

...and the digs at "The Green Hornet" keep coming.  Very bias indeed!

CaptAmerica04 12/22/2010 7:30:15 AM

 Walking Dead kicks ass.  That is all.

ddiaz28 12/22/2010 7:47:29 AM

Yeah what's with the french-fry commercial comment?  I'm looking forward to seeing it.  It looks like fun. 

Can't wait for Season 2 of Walking Dead.  Hope they meet up with Tyreese eventually.  And I can't wait to see how they handle the Shane situation since they've diverted from the book so much there.

creamygnome 12/22/2010 8:28:16 AM

I enjoy the bi-daily digs at The Green Hornet.  Keep 'em coming.

Calibur454 12/22/2010 9:15:16 AM

I've said it before but walking dead should pick up shooting again come the end of january or early febuary. I still have no idea if they will stay shooting in atlanta or shoot some scenes on location

I cant wait for season 2 and looking forward to the season 1 dvd

lusiphur 12/22/2010 9:57:52 AM

 Yeah, the pot shots at Green Hornet just make me want to see it even more.  If for no other reason than to spite Rob.

Can't wait for Season 2 of Walking Dead.

I liked the pilot for Young Justice and am looking forward to seeing the series.

Yay!  Kevin Bacon will sit on his ass and destroy the world.


KillerTomato 12/22/2010 10:14:04 AM

Despite initial nay-saying (I say thee, nay!) I'm actually kind of looking forward to the Green Hornet...which is odd...Seth Rogen as a super-hero?  That's like saying Michael Keaton could've played Batman back in his day...wait a sec...

thecheckeredman 12/22/2010 10:22:48 AM

 Is Green Hornet going to be so bad that it may be kind of good?  In a b-movie cheese-fest kinda way?




DaForce1 12/22/2010 10:34:36 AM

 Green Hornet is going to suck ass. Mainly due to that fat ass Seth Rogen. There's a reason why Stephen Chow ran away from the production as fast as he could.
