Three Generations of Flashes in YOUNG JUSTICE Season 2
DC Universe reboot or not, the Fastest Men Alive are teaming up once again.
Peter David, writer of stuff including the first Young Justice series for DC Comics, posted an update today about his upcoming second season episode of the Young Justice animated series for Cartoon Network. Showing a photo from the recording session for the episode, David revealed that his episode will feature all three generations of the Flash -- Young Justice member Kid Flash (Wally West), his mentor The Flash (Barry Allen), and the original Flash (Jay Garrick).
With actors Jason Spizak and George Eads reprising their respective characters of Kid Flash and The Flash, the original Flash will be voiced by Geoff Pierson, whom David feels looks so much like Jay Garrick "he could cosplay him at Comic Con." Pierson has appeared in a number of film and TV projects over the years, most recently as Senator Walter Edge on HBO's Boardwalk Empire and Captain Tom Matthews on Showtime's series Dexter.
No scheduled airdate has been given for the episode, although it's believed the series will return for Season 2 in the first quarter of 2012.
