It's called Justice League Action, but it doesn't have a premiere date

Cartoon Network

If you can't imagine waiting until 2017 for your Justice League fix, you're in luck: Cartoon Network is getting back in the game with a new animated series, Justice League Action. Kevin Conroy and Mark Hamill are reprising their iconic vocal roles as Batman and the Joker, respectively, and they'll be joined by James Woods' Lex Luthor and Diedrich Bader's Booster Gold in a series of 11-minute episodes. Cartoon Network hasn't announced a premiere date for the series yet, but it's shared a colorful poster. (The full version is embedded below.)

It's hard to argue with the timing of Justice League's return to animated television. The DC cinematic universe is about to enter a new phase with the March premiere of Batman v. Superman, and Justice League is going to play a huge role in that universe. The live-action and animated versions of Justice League will be able to feed off each other and flesh out the DC universe in a way that wasn't possible during Justice League's last Cartoon Network stint. (It appeared on the network in various forms from 2001 to 2006.) Of course, Justice League Action won't be the League's only animated incarnation: the second season of Justice League: Gods and Monsters Chronicles is going to premiere on Machinima sometime this year.
