The Young Justice panel at SDCC was on Sundayz but there has been very little online buzz about it as far as I can tell. This may be because YJ isn’t currently airing and Cartoon Network haven’t yet begun their promotional push for its return in the Fall. There was a poster shown around at the Con promoting the return, but I haven’t been able to find a high-resolution copy of it yet.
In attendance at Comic-Con were the producers Brandon Vietti and Greg Weisman, Miss Martian voice talent Danica McKellar, and lead character designer Phil Bourassa.
About the only write up of the actual YJ panel I’ve found is by YJ Blogger of the Young Justice blog. Her write up is great and shows that a lot of enthusiastic fans were there for the panel. However, she also confirms that the producers didn’t reveal any spoilers and really just talked about their vision for the show.
The WB.com was there with a short report for Youtube:
Buzz Focus interviewed McKellar at the signing and she revealed some of the details of working with Nolan North’s Superboy:
When I asked her if she record her lines for the movie by herself or with her fellow cast members she said in person, especially with Nolan North. “He and I almost always record together,” McKellar said. “And it’s good too because we’ve (our characters) got this romance going on and I can tell you that there’s going to be a kiss. In fact, the kiss is real. They had us kiss in the booth, which is very rare. In voiceover, they always have usually asked to kiss (the top of) our hand [demonstrates].
But they said, ‘it doesn’t quite sound right.’ At the time I was eight months pregnant so I was like, [drawing with her hand how big her stomach was] “Well, sure!” but Nolan felt all weird about it. “Are you okay with this? This feels wrong.” Yes I’m okay, I’m an actress, I’ve done this before.’ It’s a sweet kiss but still a very real kiss in the booth.
You can find photographs of their signing at Seat24F and on the @danicamckellar’s twitter stream (below):
DC Women Kick Ass posted that Velro-Chick had found a set of playing cards that were being distributed at the con showing character designs of upcoming characters including the Joker, Queen Bee, Zatanna, and a range of villains. Perhaps most intriguing is the inclusion of the Milestone character Rocket on the cards.
The panel included a showing of “Targets”, the next episode which was briefly leaked online by Cartoon Network’s own website. World’s Finest has a couple of clips from Targets as does Toon Zone.
