Bleeding Cool is reporting that DC Entertainment is resurrecting Young Justice as a live action television show, which will be released on the CW in 2015, starring Superboy and Miss Martian. Young Justice is the beloved Cartoon Network show focusing on the teenaged heroes of the DC Universe, which aired between 2011 and 2013. While the show had a fervent fanbase, it was cancelled by Cartoon Network earlier this year due to middling ratings and a rumored lack of toy sales. While there was a shady Kickstarter-esque campaign to resurrect the series, interest in the show has largely petered out despite the recent release of a tie-in video game.
While Bleeding Cool acknowledges that this is a rumor, it seems a far-fetched one at best. DC Entertainment has largely been relegating their B and C list properties to television (with the possible exception of Arrow, depending on how you feel about Green Arrow and the Flash), and Young Justice is firmly set in the larger DC Universe, with characters such as Robin, Superboy and Aqualad all having prominent roles in the show. It would be...interesting to see how much a Young Justice live action show would differ from the television show, and how many cast members would survive the transition.
Anyways, we'll see how this rumor (along with the low budget DC movies) pan out.
