Cancellation Controversy[edit]

I believe Paul Dini said in an interview with Kevin Smith that the show was canceled because girls watched the show more than boys. The network executives cried "Girls don't buy toys!" and canceled the show even though it was successful. Ambiesushi (talk) 04:47, 13 January 2014 (UTC)

The real truth behind the show being cancelled[edit]

It is shocking that no one researches.

Paul Dini and Kevin Smith[edit]

I think the text about the series' cancellation being the result of network executives not wanting girls to watch the show is a bit misleading. Some of what Dini said in the interview with Kevin Smith ([2] around 46:00) was hyperbole, and much was specifically about Tower Prep. But unless I'm missing something, he doesn't say specifically that Young Justice was cancelled because network executives didn't want girls watching the series, rather, he was expressing frustration that several times at different projects he was discouraged from deviating from boy-centric stories, because boys are the network's target demo. These deviations resulted in Tower Prep eventually being cancelled. That's not the same thing as 'Young Justice was cancelled because network executives did not want girls watching the programs.' It's part of a bigger story that requires extra context, whatever it is. Here's some of Dini's quote, hastily transcribed from the podcast referenced above:

They were having them date, and AquaLad was bad for a while. He was like a traitor. And the stories really were Buffy-style stories...very teen heavy. And now the trend has gone back. Like, superheroes are funny. And, 'cause, they're all for boys, we *do not* want the girls. I mean, I've heard executives say this, you know, not where I am, but in other places saying like, 'we do not want girls watching' these shows.

And actually, I just found this article although I'm not sure that the pieces from Jezebel would qualify as WP:RS, but it might provide some areas of context that could be sourced elsewhere. TL;DR: I don't think the podcast says explicitly why Young Justice was cancelled, and the podcast rant seemed focused on a different series, Tower Prep.

Regular member list?[edit]

Ok, so every time I read this I have an issue with the main team list. Red Arrow never officially joins the team-he more acts as a liaison member, utilizing the team as his POC since he believes the League to be infiltrated. Zatanna is the closest to being a main member, although by comparison to the other 6 she gets the least amount of plot/screen time...and Rocket was on the S1 team for a grand total of two episodes. When we next see her it's post time-skip with her in the League and engaged. None of the promotional material for the show feature her as a main-team member (the comics and I believe Legacy are a different story, but they seem to be treated as separate here).

Knowing this, shouldn't they be removed from that section? Speedy has the best argument to remain as he was central to the S1 plot, and both girls can certainly be mentioned in the opening paragraph...but sections devoted them should stay on the characters page.

Just my two cents.Axslayer33 (talk) 18:35, 25 November 2015 (UTC)
