Justice League Action coming to Cartoon Network
 
http://i68.tinypic.com/16h26ue.jpg

There’s a new DC Animated Series on the way… and this one’s all about the action. Justice League Action is a brand new, quarter-hour series from Warner Bros. Animation that will be coming soon to Cartoon Network.

Featuring the return of Kevin Conroy as Batman, the Dark Knight will join with Superman and Wonder Woman and the rest of DC’s iconic team of heroes in a series that promises to put the action back in heroics. Whether defending the Earth, facing invaders from space, or battling the bizarre forces of magic, the always-rotating team of Justice League heroes, are up to any challenge. Episodes will be eleven minutes in length, meaning that the action will be tightly-paced and exciting. And awesome!

Along with Conroy, Cartoon Network have announced that several other beloved DC Animated voice actors will be contributing to the series, including Mark Hamill as the Joker (!!!), James Woods as Lex Luthor, Diedrich Bader as Booster Gold and much more. Sam Register (Teen Titans Go!) will serve as executive producer with Butch Lukic (Justice League, Batman Beyond), Alan Burnett (Batman: The Animated Series) and Jim Krieg (Green Lantern: The Animated Series) serving as producers.

Justice League Action will join the popular Teen Titans Go! as the second ongoing DC Animated Series on Cartoon Network. No word yet on when it will be debuting, so be sure to follow DC Comics on Twitter for the premiere date as well as further news on Justice League Action as soon as its announced.

So what do you think? Ready for another dose of animated action? Share your thoughts and which heroes and villains you’re hoping to see below!

So is this a comedy show too? Looks like it even if it'll have fighting.

Possibly. Or at least in the same veign as the old Superfriends stuff. But hey Kevin Conroy and Mark Hamil together again!! :D

TurtleTitan97 01-29-2016 01:47 PM

Hope the show turns out well.

MikeandRaph87 01-29-2016 01:48 PM

A kiddie version of Justice League (2001-2006) in Nicktoon time increments? Wrong voice for Lex Luthor, but Kevin and Mark bring respectability to the project. The only thing this could do to grab my interest is to incorporate Bat Rouges as Justice League managed to only include Joker, Clayface, and Deadshot.

Should bring back Krypto the superdog.

LeotheLateBloomer 01-29-2016 02:26 PM

I'm all for this! I'm actually digging the art style for this. It may look like it is aimed for a younger audience but it looks like it can be a great action series that may blend in both action and comedy. I'm gonna give this a shot! I think it's a good way to pull in kids to see the Justice League movie (assuming this series will be out before then).

sdp 01-29-2016 02:34 PM

I like the artwork but I kind of wanted something more in-line with the Batman Unlimited cartoons. Based on the description it doesn't seem like it's a comedy show. Counting episodes are 11 minutes in length I don't think we'll see super complicated plots but we could see recreations of a bunch of comic book battles that make no sense but are just cool fun short battles.

LeotheLateBloomer 01-29-2016 02:43 PM

Wouldn't surprise me in the slightest if DC comes out with yet another Batman cartoon.

snake 01-29-2016 02:51 PM

Hey, if it's 11 minute snippets of pure fights, I'm in.

This is a Batman cartoon, more or less.

Cure 01-29-2016 03:18 PM

I'd rather hear new Batman and Joker voices.

CyberCubed 01-29-2016 03:22 PM

I don't think Kevin Conroy should be here either, this looks like a kids show probably with lots of slapstick humor. Conroy doesn't fit for this.

Its weird, they had a new Batman VA play him on The Batman, Brave and the Bold, Beware the Batman and the various DTV DC movies...yet they bring him back for this?

Tired of Conroy and Hamill too, huh?

Leo656 01-29-2016 09:04 PM

Meh. Not sold, what with that runtime. Lot of people are saying it feels like they're aiming for the same crowd they went after with Teen Titans GO. I'll have to wait and see.

CyberCubed 01-29-2016 11:07 PM

11 minute episodes with chibi animation? Yeah, it definitely going to be a kids show. Which makes me wonder why they had Conroy come back to do this when his voice won't really fit a younger skewing Batman.

That's also the same runtime Steven Universe and Adventure Time have.

That's not chibi.

CyberCubed 01-29-2016 11:59 PM

They look chibi to me. Wonder Woman and Batman especially. Superman is hard to tell because of the angle.

I don't think you even know what chibi means, because these designs certainly aren't chibi.

They look small and cuddly with big heads. That's chibi.

They don't have to look like Teen Titans Go designs to be chibi, this is another kind of chibi. But it is still chibi because they don't look like standard full grown designs so they are chibi. Very chibi.

Slade 01-30-2016 12:24 AM

They look full grown to me. Just extremely simple in design.

CyberCubed 01-30-2016 12:33 AM

Does anyone remember that JLU episode where the characters got turned into kids? It was kid Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman and Green Lantern if I recall. It was during the first season of JLU.

These designs really remind me of that episode from JLU where they were turned to children.

LeotheLateBloomer 01-30-2016 01:26 AM

Can you at least wait for an animated trailer before judging?

Also, Conroy has voiced a younger Batman before.

Commenter 42 01-30-2016 01:38 AM

I hate cheap art styles.

Give 'em his ****ing underwear back.

CyberCubed 01-30-2016 01:45 AM

I hope this doesn't have the same "animation" that TT Go has, where it looks almost like cheap flash animation you would see on the computer.

In any case I expect these to be gag oriented. Happy friendly cartoons for the kiddies.

After Young Justice was canceled I don't think CN wants any "serious" DC shows anymore. They'll probably just want comedies for kids.

LeotheLateBloomer 01-30-2016 03:01 AM

What was I thinking?:trolleye:

Shred Head 01-30-2016 03:47 AM

The designs look very similar to Spectacular Spider-Man very simplistic designs means it can be cheaper to animate. Its got a lot of good names attached to the project so I'm going to be optimistic. I mean its got to be better then Teen Titans Go or Ultimate Spider-Man. Lets face it the days of TMNT2K3, Batman the Animated series, 90's X-Men, and Legend of Korra are gone this will probably be the best we can get sad to say.

like, enough... enough red belts, and yellow red belts, and action tech lines, and cuffs, and goofy t-shirts, jeans...

The lawsuit is OVER.

Bring it home

BabyTurtles 01-30-2016 11:54 AM

Aww was kinda hoping for something more serious...like Young Justice or the first JLA......

but I'll give it a chance, why not :D it would be cool if they showed off some JL members that we don't see alot.

CyberCubed 01-30-2016 11:57 AM

Trust me, it'll be a kids show. I know about these things.

TurtleTitan97 01-30-2016 01:20 PM

Yeah, lets trust the guy who doesn't even work on the show or seen any footage and is just making assumptions just because the art style is different and simple. That makes so much sense.

Besides nothing in that description indicates this show is solely a comedy.

Leo656 01-30-2016 03:51 PM

Yeah, on the one hand it definitely does look WAY more juvenile than I was hoping for.

But, on the other hand, it still COULD be pretty good. It's not at all what I wanted or ever would have asked for, but eh. Like people keep saying about "Brave and the Bold", was it the Batman show I'd ever ask for? No. Is it my favorite one? Not at all. BUT, it was still really good from a different direction.

Still, not at all sold so far, between the art, the runtime, and the description. Looks like one that'll be easy to miss, frankly. We shall see.

M.O.D.O.K. 01-30-2016 06:19 PM

Again, the run time should be a non-issue. Shows like Steven Universe are able to weave long-term storytelling, character development, and worldbuilding in 11 minute episodes just fine.

Not saying that this show WILL or SHOULD do that. But it's not impossible either.

CyberCubed 01-30-2016 07:06 PM

11 minutes in an action cartoon is not a lot of time. You need to have set-up for the plot of the episode, the characters interacting with the villains, the fight scenes, and then the resolution.

All that in 11 minutes goes by pretty damn quickly. Its what makes me think the plots will be really simple so they can get to the action faster.

sdp 01-30-2016 07:18 PM

11 minutes is enough based on the description of the show. This won't be a plot heavy show but we will just get a basic set up and a fight. I think that works there are many iconic battles from the DCU that don't need a big set up. Let's wait for a trailer before we judge.

I just noticed that superman doesn't have his red underwear and it looks terrible. This isn't Chibi art at all either but they definitely look young.

We already have a new Batman show kind of, it's Batman Unlimited, we have 3 movies with more being made and a bunch of clips on the internet. It's for kids but kind of fun at the same time. I was actually hoping this show would have similar designs.

CyberCubed 01-30-2016 07:27 PM

I guess no DC cartoon will ever reach the highs of the DCAU, 2003 Teen Titans, or Young Justice ever again. Brave and the Bold came the closest though.

DC cartoons have been in a rut for years.

Raph's Girl 04-24-2016 07:39 PM

Ok so here's the cast so far:
Mark Hamill is Joker and Swamp Thing
Kevin Conroy is Batman and Plastic Man
Deidrich Bader is Booster Gold
James Woods is Lex Luthor
Joanne Spracklen (who?) is Supergirl
Carl Reiner is The Wizard
Brent Spiner is The Riddler
Tara Strong has also been cast but dunno her role yet. Probably Barbara Gordon/Batgirl

CyberCubed 04-24-2016 07:41 PM

I don't understand why they're using Conroy for this when this looks like a younger skewing kids show. Odd.

TurtleTitan97 04-24-2016 07:47 PM

Yes, because voice actors should be limited to working on shows that are either "serious" or "comedic" depending on their previous work.

Get real. :roll:
