YJ Fandom, we need to talk
Specifically, we need to talk about these posts
Now, I understand that we’re all really excited for Season 3′s production and all, and we’re all keen to get news on what it’s gonna be like, but these posts are caps from the same online article - found here.
This article has been written in a way that’s offering incredibly misleading information. It’s coming across some sort of “secret rumors from the industry” when in actuality, it’s just a collection of different season three speculation from fans and other websites.
(Also, this same site had a stub version of this article just last week - in which it was labelling the new additions from the second season as new additions to season three, so there’s quite an issue with factchecking there.)
First there’s the statement about possible Season 3 characters. While this article does use “likely” in the possibility of adding new characters, it doesn’t mention that the characters it then lists down are purely from someone else’s speculation. The website it cites as it’s sources leads to this page
Not so much a “rumor” as “one of many lists that different people have made about characters they want to see”.
The next few paragraphs further state speculations - mostly deriving from DCTV, nu52 or DC Rebirth inspirations - which all, know Young Justice’s history of creating and following it’s own story rather than using plots from any other inspiration, are unlikely.
The article then sources youtube channel Emergency Awesome - in particular this video, for further paragraphs down. While the video does make some intriguing points, it’s still all fan speculation.
This whole article is just a collection of fan speculation and shouldn’t be taken with even a grain of salt. And again, I know we’re all excited and wanting to find out more, but production-wise, the season is still likely to be in the stage of contract-signing, cast and crew sourcing, and budget and schedule making. At the most, there might be some preliminary script-writing and drawing concept art at this point in time, but that’s about it.
So there’s likely to not be any actual news for a while, and when there is, it’ll be coming from DC/WB, or Greg and Brandon themselves.
So please - hang tight, and try not to get fooled by misleading news sites. Because if you do, you’re just gonna get yourself disappointed later down the track.
