I did see a commercial of Justice League Action it has Teen Titans Go Cyborg and Beast Boy watching it and Cyborg was dancing because he's in the show
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.

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.

Batman is referencing the events of "Power Outage" in that clip when he mentions that the Djinn are trying to reopen the fissure created by Calythos. This means that "Power Outage" takes place before the episode that this clip is from. So I'm guessing that the 4-part 'Shazam Slam' event is a collection of four episodes: "Classic Rock" (the one where the Djinn escape from the Rock of Eternity?), followed by "Power Outage", and then two more episodes (probably a two-parter, like I said - with the Batman/Superman/Wonder Woman/Constantine/Plastic Man/Swamp Thing/Green Arrow team-up happening at some point in those two episodes).

Yes, it is.
It's "Classic Rock", "Power Outage", "Night of the Bat" and "Abate and Switch" edited together into one.

Is the Hall of Justice the League's mountain base or is it something completely different o_O?
An update to your question now that I've seen it.
The answer is both Yes and No. ;)

I was not aware of that. Interesting...

It is obvious that "Power Outage" occurs after "Shazam Slam"... I am now curious how many episodes are included in these overseas batches...
"Shazam Slam" is just the name of the 'movie' with the 4 I mentioned edited into one because Friday is an hour long special event for the US. I don't know if it will ever re-air like that (think the YJ season one preview where they aired both episode 1 and 2 together in November before the official premiere the next year). Perhaps as a home entertainment release they'd use Shazam Slam again.

Shane Glines posted his first design for JLA's Martian Manhunter. Plus some insight about why he designed him this way, in the comments:
I wanted him to look alien and elegant but still powerful. Tried to make him long and mantis-like but kept the shoulders broad and muscular for contrast, as well as to make him convincing in combat. Most of the other heroes are more traditionally muscular, wanted him to be a bit of a contrast.
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.

For those interested, The World’s Finest has reviewed the four-part Justice League Action “Shazam Slam!” series premiere, the kick off for the latest animated series based on DC Comics’ fabled superhero roster. In short, Justice League Action “Shazam Slam!” is a promising kick-off for the new DC Comics-based animated series and, while it skews to a younger audience, there’s still plenty for fans of all ages to enjoy. More importantly, it reminds us that super heroes can be fun! To read the whole review, which is accompanied by new images and a clip, click on the image below.

Wow, what is wrong with the people commenting on this Tweet?

Are we watching the same clip? :confused:
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.

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.
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.
