Animated LSH news 60: more updates

Comics Continuum has another update on animated LSH news...

  • Khary Payton, previously announced as the voice of Tyr, is also going to be doing the voice of Hunter (aka Orion the Hunter). He was also the voice of Cyborg on the Teen Titans show.

  • A bit of old news, I think:
    Look for at least two new members to join the team before the season is over.

    Unless someone from the Legion tryouts episode actually joins, based on the descriptions of the remaining episodes (1.07 through 1.13), it sounds like this will probably be Cosmic Boy (previously announced as being voiced by Wil Wheaton) and Ferro Lad in episode 11 for this 3-episode arc:
    Episode 11: "CHAIN OF COMMAND"
    When disaster strikes Lightning Lad's home planet of Winath, the Legion is called to help. Lightning Lad's efforts to take charge are thwarted however when long-absent Legion leader Cosmic Boy arrives with an enigmatic new hero in tow.

    Episode 12: "SUNDOWN, PT. 1"
    The Legion is put to the ultimate test when an ancient weapon known as a Sun Eater comes to life. The Legion mounts a heroic defense, but the Sun Eater proves too powerful. Now at full strength, the unstoppable Sun Eater sets its sights on Earth... (Part one of a two-part episode)

    Episode 13: "SUNDOWN, PT. 2"
    With the Sun Eater on a direct course for Earth's sun, the Legion has no choice but to ask bitter enemies for help to stop it. Superman meanwhile has his toughest battle yet when he discovers the stealthy alien controlling the sinister machine. In the end, the Legion triumphs... but at a terrible cost. (Part two of a two-part episode.)

  • Two comments from series producer James Tucker: "Chain of Command" will have "a very serious tone," and that the show has not [yet] been renewed for a second season yet, but an announcement is expected soon.
