Young Justice Season 3 Announced!

yjs3

Young Justice fans, it seems your prayers have been answered. Earlier this week, Warner Brothers animation has announced that production for Season 3 is underway. Although the date and network have yet to be confirmed, Young Justice producers Brandon Vietti and Greg Weisman are both returning to the series.

Young Justice, which ran 2 seasons from 2011 – 2013 chronicled the adventures of DC’s sidekicks such as Robin, Superboy, Artemis, and Aqualad as they battled covert threats. Despite the shows fanbase, it was cancelled prematurely due to poor merchandise sales. Since then, fans have been vocal about wanting to see the series return, and with the series being shown on Netflix, more and more DC fans can see what the fuss is about.

With Young Justice returning, this could open the door for more fan-favorite shows to make a return, such as Firefly, Constantine, and Agent Carter.

Toy Fair 2013: 60’s Batman series action figure line from Mattel

Over the past few days leading up to New York Toy Fair (NYTF) 2013, Mattel has teased us with some reveals for a 6 inch action figure line based on the 60’s Batman series featuring Adam West as Batman. The figures are not just based on the series, but actually use the likenesses of the actors, which makes for a compelling sell. Also, there’s a Batmobile. Aww yeeeeaah.

The line will reportedly be released in July 2013 with figures retailing for US$14.99 and the Batmobile for the rather small sum of US$49.99. Let’s just hope the assumption that the Batmobile is in scale with the figures holds. I wouldn’t take anything for granted.

Join us after the jump for a look at each of the figures! We will update this post as more figures are revealed. We still expect to see Burt Ward’s Robin, Julie Newmar’s Catwoman and Cesar Romero’s Joker.

Batman and the Batmobile came from USAToday
Riddler and Penguin came from Entertainment Earth

Powet Alphabet: R is for Robin, the Boy/Girl Wonder

It’s not a great thing to be Batman’s protege. You get shot at, blown up, killed, and — like Menudo, the Boy Scouts, or the Disney Channel — you get kicked out once you get too old. Robin is little more than a brightly colored sprite for criminals to shoot at instead of Batman, much like how a magician would use a sexy assistant to distract the audience. Except this sexy assistant is (usually) a nubile young boy, and stands a much better chance of actually getting sawed in half.

Robin has been part of the Batman mythos for 70 years. Even in real time, that means Batman must have gone through a slew of supple young teens by now. But in comic time? Hoo boy.

So just how many goddamn Robins are there anyway? (And why isn’t Batman clever enough to think of another alias for his underage sidekicks?)
