Cartoon Network Announces A Premiere Date For Justice League Action
The network’s announcement means that fans have less than a month before they get their first taste of the animated DC Comics series. Featuring a litany of superheroes and villains, the program stars veteran voice actor Kevin Conroy, with the Batman: The Animated Series lead set to reprise his role as the Caped Crusader for the series.
In “Shazam Slam,” the villainous Black Adam battles Batman on the Rock of Eternity and unleashes a horde of Djinn determined to turn the Earth back to its pre-human, volcanic state. Affected by the otherworldly powers of these primordial monsters, Batman becomes possessed and is turned into a giant flying Batmonster laying waste to the Hall of Justice, with only Superman capable of taking the fight to the Dark Knight. One by one, the Justice League – with the help of Shazam (voiced by Sean Astin) and The Wizard (voiced by Carl Reiner) – must hunt down and defeat each Djinn in order to yet again save the world from destruction.
Produced by Warner Bros. Animation and based on iconic DC Comics characters, the Justice League Action premiere will be followed by new episodes Saturday mornings on Cartoon Network, beginning December 24.
