DC reveals new animated series, Justice League Action


While DC Comics and Warner Bros struggle to figure out what they should do with their movies, they’ve always dominated TV. Arrow, The Flash, and Legends of Tomorrow are huge on the CW, Supergirl is doing well on CBS, Teen Titans Go! plays for like 14 hours a day on Cartoon Network, and their animated projects are some of the most fondly remembered comic book adaptations of all time. Heck, they’re still churning out home video animation regularly and they’re always on the better end of decent. 

So now the Justice League are coming back…pocket sized. Much like Teen Titans, Justice League is getting a revival as Justice League Action, a 15 minute program featuring short adventures. While the show may sound weird at first, James Woods was cast as Lex Luthor, Diedrich Bader (who voiced the best animated Batman in Brave and the Bold) as Booster Gold, and the biggest surprise? Kevin Conroy and Mark Hamill are set to return as Batman and the Joker respectively. 

There are no further details as to the tone of the show or premiere date, but given that this new show has the some of the same producers from the original Justice League animated run, I’m not writing this off anytime soon. The same with Teen Titans Go! While I was sad we weren’t getting a story driven show anymore, Go! ending up being pretty funny. So who knows?
