Is Warner Bros. working on a Young Justice cartoon?

Stephanie Lemelin, an actress who has appeared on shows like Rules of Engagement, Cavemen and CSI, said on her blog that she has been cast as the voice of Arrowette in an animated version of Young Justice:

WOW. Ok… I am beyond thrilled to announce that I was recently cast in the new animated series, YOUNG JUSTICE, based on the famous (and awesome!?) DC Comics. I seriously could not be more excited about being welcomed into this amazing family… what a fantastic way to start the new year! I will be voicing the character of Arrowette (see ridiculously hot avatar below!!! um, could I love her anymore?) as well as several supporting cast members… Due to the extreme popularity of this series, however, that’s about all I can say… for now. So excited, this is really a dream come true for me, I have ALWAYS WANTED TO BE A SATURDAY MORNING CARTOOON!!! Woohoo!

Young Justice was a long-running title written by Peter David that featured Robin, Superboy, Wonder Girl, Impulse, Arrowette and several other teenage characters. It was canceled in 2003, as several members of the team “graduated” to the Teen Titans book that launched in its wake. Although it’s too early to tell how close the cartoon will be to the book — or if it draws from it at all, beyond the name — the inclusion of Arrowette should be a good sign for fans of the comic.

Is it just me, or does it seem like the “bow and arrow” characters of Marvel and DC always get the female treatment when they are “youthed-down”?

I’m pretty sure it’s just you

Arrowette isn’t a young Green Arrow. She’s a young Arrowette.

ah okay, didn’t know that, don’t really follow green arrow that much.

Maybe Peter David’s work on a Teen Titans series several years back has resurfaced?

If that’s the costume she’s going to sport, it looks like she’s being groomed to be some sort of Speedy II / Mia (ala Kevin Smith’s GA / Smallville), rather than be an Arrowette legacy.

Well, Kevin Smith’s Speedy was likely just cuz he didn’t know bout Arrowette/was respecting that PAD had her retire. That’s more or less Arrowette’s costume in green. (and yeah, they’re gonna go with the GA angle for her, since other than YJ/Impulse, Arrowette’s mom had what 1 or 2 appearances in the silver age?)

I just posted this over at Blog@, but I wouldn’t be surprised to find out that this is actually an upcoming DVD feature, not a series.

I liked PAD’s Young Justice over the Teen Titans it turned into. YJ was a fun teenage book, where TT is all about “who’s getting killed or quitting in this story arc”.

Arrowette? This isn’t Mia is it?

It better not be Mia.

um yeah, boring.

Um… I’m guessing this was posted before, but her name is Artemis in Young Justice. So yeah…
