‘Young Justice’ Gets Premiere Date, New Trailer

A new trailer for ‘Young Justice’ Cartoon Network’s ‘Justice League Unlimited’ successor has debuted alongside the statement that the show will premiere this January.

Those of you waiting tolerantly for DC’s latest animation adaptation won’t have to wait much longer. After an hour-long sneak peak in November, Cartoon Network will debut Young Justice in its regular slot on Friday, January 7th at 7 PM. The channel’s been running a short trailer to get fans keyed up, and it has a few new tidbits to tide you over until the first show.

The junior superheroes are effective under the Justice League, functioning as a farm team and taking covert assignments from Batman. At the end of the sneak peak, the team included Robin, Kid Flash, a newly-cloned Superboy, Aqualad and Miss Martian. Speedy was seen briefly, but elected not to link the Justice League or the younger spin-off. Red Tornado serves as a live-in chaperone while Black Canary trains the youngsters in the arts of superhero chop-sockey.

As a big fan of Bruce Timm’s DCAU, I’m keyed up to see a good successor to Justice League. Young Justice looks to keep the kid-pleasing yet adult-friendly formula going, without resorting to the goofy, anime-inspired antics of Teen Titans. The addition of voice acting veterans like Alan Tudyk, Phil LaMarr and Khary Payton means that the action should be topped with some excellence acting by cartoon standards, at least.

Young Justice will air Fridays at 7:00 on Cartoon Network starting January 7th.
