YOUNG JUSTICE: OUTSIDERS' New NIGHTWING Costume Ties In To The Series' Unfinished Story

Executive producer Brandon Vietti discusses the opportunity to closeout unfinished business in Young Justice season 3 while lead character designer Phillip Bourassa explains Nightwing's new costume.

When the first character designs for Young Justice season 3 were unveiled at last month's SDCC, fans quickly focused on the odd new costume for Dick Grayson aka Nightwing.

Speaking to CB, lead character designer Phillip Bourassa stated, "Well, we can’t talk too much about plot stuff but if you look at the art that we showed you’ll notice there’s no hero insignias. There’s no telltale signs of, ‘This is Nightwing. This is Black Lightning,’ that sort of thing.

Following the tradition of the sort of covert ops aspect, the stealth missions that we’ve always had in the show, and looking at Dick Grayson’s arc and where we left him, where he’s like, ‘I don’t want to do this superhero thing,’ so then you can kind of see where that’s going."  

It seems that continuation of dangling plot threads is a major driving force according to executive producer Brandon Vietti.  However, the show isn't exclusively looking to retread previously covered territory and fans should also expect a few new elements, ideas and characters to be introduced.

Vietti says he and fellow executive producer Greg Weisman broke out their old index cards that they'd long since put in storage when they began work on Young Justice: Outsiders.  "
There were a lot of unfinished stories with them that we had ideas for, I think even in our first and second season, story ideas written down on little 3x5 cards and put on a wall and we just couldn’t get to those 3x5 cards in our first two seasons but Greg, he kept all of them and they came out, they’re up on the wall again."

Vietti continued, "So we’re going back into those and trying to continue, logically, the story progressions that everybody got to see in the first two season but also bring in these new ideas that we’ve had for a while but will shed new light on different aspects of the characters."

Young Justice: Outsiders is set to premiere sometime in 2018 on DC Entertainment's new, untitled streaming platform.
