    Yes! This is awesome! Teen Titans Go! fans could see this and go check out Justice League Action! Plus emphasizing that Cyborg is in the show only helps. This is exactly what I was hoping for. Pair the two DC shows together. Teen Titans Go! is immensely popular (since Cartoon Network likes to air it quite often to say the least) so let Justice League in on that action! ;)

    By the way, I wouldn't be surprised if Teen Titans Go starts referencing Justice League Action at one point or another. Thanks for posting this HEATXZ.

    Cartoon Network has passed along press details for new Justice League Action episodes slated to debut this month. Check out the official information below:

    JUSTICE LEAGUE ACTION: SHAZAM SLAM! (TV-Y7-FV)
    Premieres Friday, Dec. 16 at 6 p.m. (ET/PT)

    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.

    JUSTICE LEAGUE ACTION (TV-Y7-FV)
    Series premieres with 4-part special Friday, Dec. 16 at 6 p.m. (ET/PT)
    New episodes begin Saturdays, Dec. 24 at 7:30 a.m (ET/PT)

    The world’s greatest Super Heroes return to television in Justice LeagueAction, an all-new animated series. Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman lead the DC Super Heroes against their most infamous foes in adventures packed with relentless thrills, fun and action. 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.

    Saturday, Dec. 24: “Classic Rock” – Batman thinks he’s helping a homeless old man who is being mugged on the street only to discover that the man is a powerful wizard being chased by demons in disguise. It turns out the wizard is on a mission to save Shazam from the clutches of Black Adam.

    Saturday, Dec. 31: “Power Outage” – A ghoul known as Calythos possesses the Parasite in order to drain the Justice League of its powers and use that stolen strength to open a massive volcano.

    Is the Hall of Justice the League's mountain base or is it something completely different o_O?

    The other day I was wondering if this 'Shazam Slam' story was a collection of four related episodes (or perhaps two standalone episodes and a two-parter), rather than a full-on four-parter, and now this clip seems to confirm it.

    Shane Glines posted his first design for JLA's Martian Manhunter. Plus some insight about why he designed him this way, in the comments:
    Other than the color of his pants, I don't really see much difference between it and the design they use on the show. Looks pretty cool, kind of reminds me of Saint Walker.

    Mm, only other differences is he's brighter in color tone and doesn't have the yellow belt buckle anymore.

    So I came across a negative review video of JLA, and it made me want to facepalm in frustration of the reviewer nitpicking small details and his nostalgia over the old Justice League.

    This is probably the same comments that would be made if B:TAS premiered in the Twitter era. lol.

    EDIT: Merch at Walmart - Mighty Minis JLA Series 1 Mystery Box (contains 36 Packs). Figure it's marketing but funny there's a Robin in there since they denied he'd be in season 1.

    I have a Confession to Make. I'm Honestly Disappointed With Mark Hamil's Swamp Thing wasn't low pitched or masked to match the Design.

    Same with John DiMaggio as Lobo, He made Lobo sound like a wannabe version of Carnage Kabuto from One Punch Man. I'm sorry but I don't care for it.

    There's unfortunately a lot of people like that. Many fans' overwhelming nostalgia limit them from enjoying new takes on properties they love. The reality is that this is a different time and so the series' creators are making something different than what was made before.

    I wish people would realize that not everything is made to be nostalgic for them. And, personally, I find a lot of films and television series with nostalgia in mind can offer turn into uninspiring cash-grabs. Look at all the reboots and remakes out there jumping on the nostalgia of older viewers. I'd rather see something fresh and new. Some properties work with new takes every few years like Tranformers and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles because they stay in circulation. Other properties stay dormant and return years or decades later, usually for nostalgic purposes.

    If I want to see Justice League (2001) or Justice League Unlimited, I can go back and watch those shows. They each had numerous episodes unlike a lot of action shows today. Same with Teen Titans (2003). Teen Titans Go! doesn't need to be Teen Titans (2003) again. I'm looking forward to Justice League Action because it's something new.
