Thanks, Yojimbo and Frontier - those answers have helped to illuminate this matter for me. I was starting to get suspicious, especially since a fair number of characters underwent radical redesigns for season 3 (Flash, Black Lightning, Wonder Woman etc.) that (I believe) were in line with the "New 52" animation style.

I think it would be more accurate to say Phil Bourassa's post-Justice League War designs, some of which are more based around the New 52, although certain designs like Superman and Wonder Woman are more like their Rebirth costumes ;).

Weisman and Vietti talked YJ on an episode of Warner Archive's podcast a few days ago. Under 26 minutes long.
‎Warner Archive Podcast: Young Justice: Outsiders Interview on Apple Podcasts or on Stitcher.

They talk about Beast Boy, crafting Forager, how the outro during credits came to be, and things we've heard before like the timestamps and geopolitics. If anyone remembers back when Outsiders was first announced, Weisman and Vietti teased there was a character they basically wrote off to a few appearances but things changed and he became a major player in the season? It was Beast Boy. Nightmare Monkeys was one of the appearances they had planned then as they continuing breaking story and thinking of the social media angle, they realized it was going to be Beast Boy.

Also the Archive team announced that because the Outsiders set lacks a commentary, they're going to pick an episode and do a commentary track with Weisman and Vietti with the next podcast episode. YES!!!

Who would've thought the character with probably one of the biggest roles in the entire season wasn't even planned for it? Kind of fits Gar in a way, though :p.

Can't wait to see which episode they do commentary for :).

Weisman and other guests sort-of do that on a Spectacular Spider-Man podcast I listen to. No episodes got a commentary, so they sort of discuss them and discuss behind the scenes trivia, etc. It'd be interesting to see them do a more formal commentary track on YJ.

That's pretty cool. I think it was speculated here before Kaldur might have been the character they wanted to be taken off the show, but then it was announced he would be the new Aquaman and stuff.
I guessed Beast Boy, but I don't think Kaldur is that far-off, even after the Aquaman reveal. He didn't really do much in the first half and gets a more prominent role in the second half. I know some people speculated he got promoted and kept in the League to write him off for most of the season.

I honestly thought it was El Dorado! Aside from a blink-and-you-miss-it cameo in "Home Fires", we don't see him until "Leverage"... so I thought for sure that his role in the events at the Meta-Human Youth Center might have been contrived quite late in the game.

I always thought it was kind of a shame the Secret & Harm episode from season 1 never really received a proper follow-up, so it would be nice if they did more with at least Secret.

Also, coincidence or not, "Phantoms" was also the title of an episode from the Legion of Super-Heroes cartoon (though neither Weisman or Vietti wrote or directed it :p).

Why do I get the feeling we're getting a Blackest Knight adaption :eek:?

But...yeah, phantoms of the past, Phantom Zone, Phantom Girl, lots of different ways to apply this subtitle ;).

Secret was a major member of the Young Justice team in the comics :).

I love the title! Very surprised that it has been revealed at such an early stage though - I thought that it might be unveiled at WonderCon in April 2020. This is certainly a fun title and yeah, there are lots of ways to interpret this one... Perhaps Wally West is in the Phantom Zone (just saying)! Would love for Secret to return, as has been mentioned above. I'm excited to learn more about this season!

Now that I think about it, I think some origins have Supergirl's pod pass through the Phantom Zone before it arrives on Earth...

Disney is having such a bad time this month. With removing of Love, Simon and moving it's series to Hulu because it is too "mature", stopping production of Lizzie McGuire because it was also too "mature", having a "LGBT representation" in Onward and she only appears in ONE scene, few DisneyParks shutting down temporarily due to Coronavirus, their stock went down, Bob Iger left, and is being replaced by Bob Chapek
I know I’m saying this out of nowhere but, I wish The Hub was still around. My favorite shows were Dan Vs. and The Aquabats Super Show.

Cort Lane leaves Marvel animation.

I'm hoping at some point this decade, Netflix will finally pick up one of Fresh TV's new projects instead of Cartoon Network (not to sound offensive but seven shows seem quite enough).

Also if Total Dramarama does get cancelled at some point, Fresh needs to put the Total Drama franchise to rest (not abandoning it) for a little while and focus on other projects like Lucas the Spider.

I've noticed in my "Alerts" that you've commented on the Flintstones video I posted today, yet no comments from you are visible on the page for it via my laptop/mobile device (I see other comments, though). Not sure what's going on.
