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.

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.

I have to say, I’m pretty upset right now. For those that have been reading the site for awhile, you should be well aware of my deep seated love for both comics and cartoons. So when you combine both and tease me with the prospect of a comic based cartoon, you can pretty much guarantee I’ll be a die hard fan. And I’m not alone. I mean, I am horribly alone in my personal life, yes, but I have plenty of fan brethren that feel as I do about comics and cartoons.
