"Rowdy" Roddy Piper Reported Dead at 61
Ahead of the one-hour premiere of Young Justice on Nov. 26, MTV’s Splash Page has the six-minute clip of the animated series that was screened last month at New York Comic Con.
Announced in April, the Cartoon Network show features a team roster that differs in significant ways from the DC Comics series of the same name: Robin (Dick Grayson), Kid Flash (Wally West), Superboy (a newly “born” Conner Kent), Miss Martian, Artemis and team leader Aqualad (Jackson Hyde, not Garth). Curiously, while Speedy is featured prominently in the footage, neither Miss Martian nor Artemis appears.
Producers Greg Weisman and Brandon Vietti have said that lineup is “really just the tip of the iceberg” for a series that will feature a sprawling cast that includes a 16-member Justice League.
The Young Justice “special one-hour movie event” airs Friday, Nov. 26, at 7 p.m. EST/PST.
