Walking Dead season 2 preview online. Plus: Young Justice series runs in two weeks. Green Hornet: a different kind of cheeseburger. A new Largo Winch II trailer and more! It's your Comics2Film 10.12.22!
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.
For all you normal people out there, here's a featurette from Sony which explains why Seth Rogen will be a different kind of hero in Michel Gondry's feature-length french fry commercial Green Hornet.
Here's a trailer for the sequel Largo Winch II, based on the Belgian comics by Philippe Francq and Jean Van Hamme featuring a globe-trotting bazillionaire philanthropist. Hey! Sharon Stone is in it.
