Cartoon Network announced today that they will be launching a brand new Justice League animated series titled Justice League Action and they also revealed artwork featuring Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman, the Trinity. The press release featured this series synopsis of the new series which you can find below.
“Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman lead the DC Comics Super Heroes against their most infamous foes in adventures packed with relentless thrills, fun and action. No need to wait for the good stuff to start, each eleven-minute episode jumps in with lightning-paced action and 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.”
Justice League Action will star Kevin Conroy as Bruce Wayne/Batman who has voiced this character many times in animation since Batman: The Animated Series, but that’s not all as it was also revealed that Mark Hamill will once again voice Batman’s greatest enemy, The Joker. While voice talent for characters like Superman and Wonder Woman was not revealed at this time, Cartoon Network has revealed that James Wood as Lex Luthor, Superman’s nemesis, andÂ Diedrich Bader as Booster Gold.
