:lol: He also did Gambit in Wolverine and the X-Men and Samurai Jack (Asian). I just don't see him as Aquaman. Ah well. I trust this show.

After John DiMaggio doing Aquaman in Brave & The Bold, they're just going through the Futurama cast.

Wrong! Bruce Timm while making Justice League Unlimited flat out stated that he was writing the show for 30 year old fan boys. Cartoon network put the show on at 9pm. Not only do kids love the show, but they are still making and selling new JLU toys five years after the show has been canceled!

Though it's not as much the name as what they do with the characters. It is looking a lot more like post Graduation Day Teen Titans than Young Justice. Especially after watching the video with the producers. That was good until One Year Later.

JLU was hardly a commercial success as a cartoon despite how awesome it was. Yet again another reason why catering to fanboys does not give you mainstream appeal.

JLU was threatened with cancellation at every turn, and an inconsistent release schedule that made it difficult to catch with large gaps between certain episodes.

Considering this is a "new" DCU, I don't see how they could use anyone besides Wally and Dick.

Besides, chances are they will look like Tim and Bart and act like Tim and Bart so just pretend that they're actually Tim and Bart going under assumed names due to witness protection.

Also the last time tv saw Tim Drake it was in 2001 or 2002 with Static Shock. Just saying. :P

Futhermore, audiences can't be complete idiots. They know by now Dick isn't Robin anymore. They've had three animated show's back to back to back tell them he upgraded to Nightwing.

Wally has been the Flash in all the animated stuff over the last 30 years, but I'd say you could make a good case for Bart thanks to Smallville being recent and having way more out of costume Bart (even in only a handful of episodes) than the animated shows have had of Wally.

And on all of those shows he started as Robin the first times he was seen.

Then at some point he moved on to be Nightwing (although on The Batman, that's really stretching since it was only in a Dark Knight Returns possible future episode, not really on the regular show). As I said, maybe they are looking to do that here. Maybe Barry will die, and Wally will "graduate" as well. Then Tim and Bart can come right in to fill their spots.

The show hasn't aired, it's introducing a bunch of new characters, and it's keeping 2 older ones around for at least the first season or so. I really don't see any reason to get your panties in a bunch.

The audiences aren't the same at all. They're aiming this at kids!

I really don't think the Young Justice fans are capable of seeing that there's only a couple hundred thousand people (at most) that will care that Tim and Bart aren't here, while there's going to be millions of potential viewers who know Dick and/or Wally. I think they are too close to the characters to see what's going on.

The majority of people have no idea who Robin is underneath the mask, he's just Robin.

They probably think he's called Burt Ward.
