Cartoon Network canceled Young Justice, so it’s not getting any Warner Bros. sanctioned promotion at San Diego Comic-Con. But showrunners Greg Weisman and Brandon Vietti will meet and greet fans at 11 a.m. behind the convention center for an unofficial celebration of the animated series.
Vietti told Newsarama this is the kind of show he’s always wanted to make. It dealt with issues that face teens: not feeling respected by adults, trying to find a purpose in life and falling in love for the first time among. It used superhero action and spy thrills as the catalyst for these events. A small but dedicated fanbase is still intensely loyal, doing petition drives and anything else that might make them heard. The DC Nation animated block has gone back to the familiar: a new Batman show and a Teen Titans update that features comedy with some occasional crimefighting thrown in.
Young Justice’s story isn’t completely told though. There’s a video game on the way that will fill in the time gap between Seasons 1 and 2, with both showrunners contributing to the story. They’re currently busy with some exciting projects. Weisman is working on Star Wars: Rebels, the latest animated series in that galaxy far, far away. Vietti is directing another project we’ve told you about, the long awaited crossover between WWE and Scooby-Doo.
