The biggest part of the series of rumors to date is that of Aqualad being Black and played by a Black voice actor." (to read Wallrus' full post click here) I feel comfortable reporting that these are more than rumors.
Although they have yet to make a formal announcement, Warner Brothers is most definitely working on a new series called Young Justice League loosely based on the DC comic Young Justice (which itself started off as JLA jr). Speculation of a black Aqualad makes sense as a diversity tactic, since they will not use any of the characters from Teen Titans Go including the team's black powerhouse, Cyborg. Whether they are retrofitting the existing Aqualad, or creating a brand new character is unclear. The Young Justice League line up will also not include Kid Flash, Robin, Speedy or Green Arrow, opting for Nightwing, Impulse and Arrowette instead. Also rumored in the line up is Conner Kent (Superboy) and Martian Girl. more news on this as it comes out...
