Rumor has it the fan favorite Peter David comic starring teenage DC superheroes will become an animated series soon.
Rich Johnston broke this story at Bleeding Cool after finding a blog post from actress Stephanie Lemelin, who has apparently been cast in the show.
WOW. Ok… I am beyond thrilled to announce that I was recently cast in the new animated series, YOUNG JUSTICE LEAGUE, 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!
Shortly after the story started making its way around the web, the blog post and image were removed. However, a source sort of confirmed the story to Johnston, telling him the following:
It’s Sorta THE Young Justice. They will be going out with this BIG TIME at Comic Con. From what I saw, it’s Martian Girl, Aqualad, Nightwing, Impulse, Arrowette, and Connor Kent. The poster gives me the tone that it’s a cross between JLU and TT. I liked the look a lot. It’s not quite Timm-style, but it’s not All Murikami’d out like Teen Titans.
The kids were the focus of the poster, in the center, but The JL was behind them.
Well, that’s still pretty good, right? Young Justice has remained a fan favorite for years after the series came to an end, with many fans clamoring for its return non-stop since it ended.

UPDATE: Peter David Responds:
People keep asking me about “Young Justice League,” a new animated series that Bleeding Cool News caught wind of that’s apparently evocative of “Young Justice.”
You know as much as I know about it. Some of you may know more. No, I’m not scheduled to write for it, no, I haven’t been approached, yes, if they did, I’d leap at it ’cause I loved working with those characters.
End of statement.
