Warner Bros has released their panel schedule for SDCC and curiously on Sunday July 27's "A Batman for all Seasons" panel at 12 pm in Room 7AB has sparked a small fire of rampant speculation. The panel is basically a breakdown of Batman in all media versions the character's appeared in. Though it's this part of the panel description that's gotten many folks in a fuss:
Attendees who stick around to the end will be privy to a special WAC announcement that will excite fans both “Young” and old.
Now given this is Warner Brothers Archive Collection making the announcement and given earlier this year they released Green Lantern: The Animated Series on Blu-Ray (Batman: the Brave and the Bold is getting a Blu-Ray release this month) it's probable Young Justice is getting a Blu-Ray collection set (which it hasn't yet. Go ahead. Look on Amazon. Fans have never gotten one.) or the Batman (another show that hasn't gotten a Blu Ray release either). Or it's another DC show that's getting a Blu-Ray release. But if not Young Justice, where would the "Young" tie in?
Of course, there are some overzealous fans taking this as hints of a Young Justice Season 3 revival, but, sadly, that's probably not the case. If it is related to the show, it'll just be a Blu-Ray collection of the entire series, nothing more.
Afterall, why announce that particular show returning at a Batman panel? Wouldn't Warner Bros want to announce that in a bigger panel instead? Also look at the quote, its Warner Bros Archive Collection (WAC for short) making the announcement, not Warner Bros itself or any animation department they have under them making this announcement.
Yes, show co-runnner Brandon Vitti will be there, but he's there for more than just that announcement; it's because he directed episodes of Batman: The Brave & the Bold, the Batman, and directed a little DC animated movie called Batman: Under the Red Hood. So, sorry to be the bearer of BAD NEWS, but try to enjoy the possibility of a Blu-Ray release instead of getting your hopes up for something that's unlikely to happen at this point.
