Cartoon Network UK Justice League Action Premieres Saturday 26th November

Cartoon Network UK and Ireland will be premiering a brand new show from Warner Bros. Animation called Justice League Action this Saturday (26/11/2016) at 7.30am. Ever since news emerged last year about the show entering production, DC Comics fans everywhere have been anticipating the show’s premiere on Cartoon Network. The series will feature the adventures of Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, and various members of the Justice League.

The new action series features famous superheroes from DC Comics including Batman (voiced by Kevin Conroy), Superman, Wonder Woman and Booster Gold (Diedrich Bader) and other DC Comics superheroes alongside villains such as the Joker (voiced by Mark Hamill) and Lex Luthor (James Woods). Sam Register (Teen Titans Go!) serves as executive producer with Butch Lukic (Justice League, Batman Beyond), Alan Burnett (Batman: The Animated Series) and Jim Krieg (Green Lantern: The Animated Series) also serving as producers.

Cartoon Network USA will premiere the brand new animated action show a few weeks later on Friday 16th December at 6pm ET/PT and from Christmas Eve (Saturday 24th December), the show will air every Saturday morning. The first episode that will air on Cartoon Network USA is called “Shazam Slam,” which focuses on magical superhero Shazam and his arch-nemesis Black Adam. Ahead of the premiere, Cartoon Network USA has already uploaded a sneak peek from the new show.

Full description of “Shazam Slam”:

In “Shazam Slam,” 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.
