As had been teased a few months back, Cartoon Network today announced that the Justice League is returning to the airwaves for an ongoing series Called Justice League Action. As if that wasn’t enough, the iconic voice of Batman, Kevin Conroy — who pioneered the role in Batman: The Animated Series — is back to do it again.
JLA, long a GrizzlyBomb and general fan favorite (here are some of our best picks from the last ongoing Justice League Animated series), there is one key difference known about this new show. Rather than the traditional 30-minute block, Justice League Action is going to be aired in the quarter-hour format that’s proven successful with many CN shows, such as Adventure Time and Regular Show.
A new image from the Warner Bros. offices in Burbank California teases a few new animated series coming to the small screen, including what looks to be new Justice League animated series, titled simply JLA.
Today we’ll take a look at the image and gather the little information we know about the series, while briefly looking at some of the versions of these characters we’ve seen in the animated world before.
Did any of you guys expect The LEGO Movie to be as good as it was? Count us in that group of movie geeks who were caught off guard by just how AWESOME that film was (pun intended). Well now DC Comics most prolific heroes are getting the LEGO film treatment as well, but you won’t have to spend movie theater prices to see it.
The always moody but always prepared Batman and a slew of other DC Comics heroes and villains are ready to take over the small screen on Cartoon Network. Fans of all ages will certainly be tuning into LEGO Batman: Be-Leaguered!
Cartoon Network is ready to give fans young and old another LEGO feature presentation. DC’s moody Dark Knight will fight alongside his fellow Justice Leaguers in the upcoming special, LEGO Batman: Be-Leaguered. We have the first clip for you below:
Once a bunch of infamous DC baddies show up and make the Man of Steel disappear, Batman finally becomes a team player and joins up with The Flash, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, and Cyborg. You can expect to see Captain Cold pop up during the world saving festivities, too…
This special LEGO animated special will be followed by the release of LEGO Batman 3: Beyond Gotham a month later. The premise for this light-hearted take on the DC Comics universe is as follows – Superman’s nemesis Brainiac manages to snag the powers held within each of the Lantern Corps’ rings. Brainiac then puts those power rings’ abilities to good use by simply shrinking Earth and other planets to add to his personal collection. Brainiac and the Legion of Doom will then have to fend off the heroes – Batman and his Justice League allies.
In celebration of Batman’s 75th Anniversary, make sure you tune into this Cartoon Network special on October 27 at 6 p.m. EST.

Warner Bros. CEO Kevin Tsujihara spoke at their annual investors meeting, where he revealed a little more about the studio’s plans for their DC Comic properties. Those plans consist of ten movies being released from 2016 to 2020, and include the confirmation of a few things we already suspected.
It’s been quite the year for Arthur Curry, or Aquaman to those of you who aren’t familiar. From his speculated to now confirmed inclusion in the upcoming Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice, to his brief nod in the post credit scene of Justice League: War, the King of the Seven Seas has been notably visible in 2014.
This year we saw no shortage of announcements from DC Entertainment, who shocked Comic Con by announcing a Man of Steel sequel to include Batman, as well as finally confirming the Flash and Justice League films. Knowing that their live action films are in the works, we also learned about the ongoing awesomeness that are the DC Animated Features.
Whereas Marvel Studios has been leading the charge in Hollywood, DC Entertainment has been absolutely crushing Marvel when it comes to full length animated films. Marvel has had a couple that aren’t terrible, but DC has been adapting storylines and releasing great animated films for years now.
