“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!”

Conroy will be joined by several other well known voice actors including: Mark Hamill reprising his role as the Joker (the the delight of us all, no doubt), James Woods as Lex Luthor, Dietrich Bader (once a Batman himself), as Booster Gold!

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.”

Who is as excited as we are for Justice League Action and what are we most looking forward to seeing?

    I’d be more excited if it was longer than 15 minutes a show. Do they think kids can’t sit still for 30 minutes?

      I think CN deals exclusively in 15 minute blocks these days, don’t they?

    I knew there was a Justice League cartoon in the works, but I was expecting something with less cartoony animation.

    They look… way too young. I’m guessing more of CN’s meddling? It’d be in line with how they’ve treated DC in the last several years…

    15 minute programming is actually a really smart move by Cartoon Network, and others (like Disney). First, you don’t have to rush a longer story and you can get in and out with a punch. Second, as far as programming a half our or longer block, the first fifteen is a new episode, and the last fifteen is an old episode. You are seeing networks do this when they run a new show during its regularly scheduled slot, and then the hour after is a rerun of last week’s show for those who missed it. Third, fifteen minute programming means you get twice the number of shows for the same price, so it is a win/win for the network. Finally, yes, children’s attention spans and continued crackdown on shows masquerading as toy commercials mean shorter shows will keep the kiddies around longer.
