A new banner gives us our first look at Young Justice: Phantoms, which reveals the return of the show’s original heroes.
After its revival season, Young Justice will be back for its fourth season with another new home at HBO Max. DC FanDome will offer a glimpse at what we can expect from the beloved animated series next weekend. Ahead of the virtual convention, Collider exclusively revealed our first look at Phantoms, which will reunite members of the original squad. You can check out the new banner below.
Collider also got the chance to speak with Young Justice showrunners Brandon Vietti and Greg Weisman. Here’s what Weisman had to say about the upcoming season’s lineup:
“We expand the cast with every season, always introducing new young heroes. (It’s not called Young Justice for nothing!) But, as always, we don’t attempt to give every character full coverage in every season. The needs of story and the growth of our original core cast of heroes (now going by Nightwing, Aquaman, Superboy, Miss Martian, Tigress, Zatanna and Rocket) dictate which other characters — new and old — we’ll focus on.”
Vietti added how they have used the DC Universe to develop the fan-favorite Young Justice characters:
“From the beginning, we set out to use the entire DC Universe as a backdrop and a catalyst of evolution for our core characters. Each new character introduced has a unique story that helps us further explore the reaches of the DC Universe and the depths of all characters involved. Using the literal passage of time to introduce new generations of young characters gives our series a unique method of showing real growth and that’s something we continue to have fun within Season 4.”
Here is the official synopsis for Young Justice: Outsiders:
“From Warner Bros. Animation, Young Justice: Outsiders features the return of the fan favorite animated series with a huge cast of DC’s most iconic young super heroes – plus brand-new characters, many of whom are just discovering their unique meta-powers and special abilities. Set against the backdrop of a rich, deep world that touches all corners of the DC universe, our heroes will face the new threat of metahuman-trafficking, and an intergalactic arms race for control of these super-powered youths.”
Young Justice: Outsiders features the voice talents of Jesse McCartney as Dick Grayson/Nightwing, Khary Payton as Aqualad, Danica McKellar as Miss Martian, Nolan North as Superboy/Superman, and Alyson Stoner as Oracle.
