Warner Bros. says NO to fan funding of GLTAS and Young Justice!

May 3rd, 2013 by Edwin Torres Jr Comments

I usually get to share cool and awesome stuff with you guys. I’m afraid this is not one of those times. I’m sad to report that DC will not let GLTAS or Young Justice be funded by fans.

According to, the meeting they had with Warner Bros. earlier in April to discuss putting  Green Lantern: The Animated Series and young Justice back into production was unfortunately unsuccessful.

In a quick, and upsetting update by the site SMGO (Show Must Go On) shared with fans on their Tumblr page that Warner Bros said No to the fan campaign revival. They also said that Warner Bros. believed that the fans could not reach the necessary funding for the show. The campaign started out in a voting phase, where the fans would vote for a revival of the show. If the bar reached 100%, we would enter a funding phase, similar to Kickstarter. However, a meeting was arranged between the two parties earlier in April. Now, it seems that meeting was unsuccessful.

The Tumblr post reads:

“Hey all, I’ve been trying (all day) to come up with a slightly better way to say this, but I’m just going to give it to you straight. Warner said no – they don’t think we can reach our goals – do you believe that?”
