Young Justice is a new series coming to Cartoon Network based on the DC comics of the same title. Its not directly affiliated with previous DC Universe animation such as Justice League Unlimited or Teen Titans. If you haven’t see the preview clip already, watch it here.

But that doesn’t mean those characters are off limits. At a panel at New York Comic Con, Series producers Greg Weisman (Gargoyles) and Brandon Vietti (Batman: Brave & Bold) showed that this younger Justice League will serve under the direction of the Justice League. Batman, Red Tornado, and Black Canary will play a direct role in the training, dispatch, and care of the team. Not that there aren’t some other heavy hitters that will show up as well, as you can see by the character designs. Titans Tower reported some of the voice cast of the show as Bruce Greenwood as Batman, Alan Tudyk as Green Arrow, Nolan North as Superman, Phil Lemarr as Aquaman and Rob Lowe as Captain Marvel. Greenwood previously played Batman in “Under The Red Hood” as well as Captain Pike in the 2009 Star Trek film.

Weisman claims they have over 150 DC characters slated to appear in the show, with original characters kept to a minimum. They have no restrictions or embargoes on who can appear in the show, so any DC universe character can and likely will appear in Young Justice.

Robin will be the Dick Grayson version, and Kid Flash will be Wally West. They’re starting over the entire DC animated universe with this show, and adding some original touches to characters. Superboy will be Conner Kent (eventually), but will start the show as a clone of Superman only 16 weeks old.

Young Justice announced voice cast will be as follows: Jesse McCarthy as Robin, Jason Spizak as Kid Flash, Khary Payton as Aqualad, Nolan North as Superboy, Danica McKellar as Miss Martian, and Stephanie Lemelin as Artemis.

A preview episode will air on Cartoon Network in November 2010, the rest of the 26 episode season will follow in Spring 2011.
