    Surprisingly, Cartoon Network has released media for next week's new DC Nation animated short - "Shazam - Courage." Click the image below to check it out.

    Along with Green Arrow, this is looking to be another fun series of new shorts.
    As I said in the previous thread, I hope the title of this first short, "Courage," is an indication we're getting six shorts, one for each attribute of Shazam: Wisdom of Solomon, Strength of Hercules, Stamina of Atlas, Power of Zeus, Courage of Achilles, and Speed of Mercury and one Marvel family villain.

    DC Nation may not have the head of steam it once had, but that doesn't stop them from scoring a Daytime Emmy nomination or two.

    Beware the Batman scored four and even Young Justice got a final one, so tallying things up, DC Nation managed to account for 6 of the 10 nominations Cartoon Network received this year.

    Anyone have a guess what "WRONG COLORS" is as listed on May 21 at 6:30 PM? I asked Ben Jones and he did not know.

    DC Nation seems to be joining Toonami along with BtB if the current schedule is accurate.

    Yep, Jason DeMarco confirmed it on Twitter.

    No clue if this is a full switch or in addition to the shorts during TTG, but it might be recurring if his wording "the first of" is any indication.

    Yes, the first of the Batman shorts.

    He is only talking about the two Batman 75th anniversary shorts... I wouldn't expect any other DC Nation shorts to premiere in that slot.

    Hmm, they said they would only air shorts after new episodes. Odd. Assuming it's not some insert like that Lego Mixels, among the active series - could be Metal Men, Farm League or Green Arrow. Doom Patrol is taking titles from their comics. Or could be a new one. Colors. A new GL short?

    Keep DC Nation around as a DC shorts program basically.

    Because the block itself is an ex-parrot.

    Looks like those shorts during Beware the Batman will be the only DC Nation shorts for two weeks. On Thursdays, Teen Titans Go! will be pre-empted for two weeks for Total Drama: Pakhitew (sp?) Island on the 10th and 17th. Pakhitew is being promoted as a "two-week event" though, so TTGo! should be back on the 24th.

    Ben Jones tweeted that Creature Commandos is helmed by producer/director/writer/editor Dave Mendel.

    Correct, someone with Toonami/AS, I think, confirmed on Twitter they were only airing the two Batman 75 shorts.
