The all-new animated adventures of DC’s greatest superheroes take flight on Cartoon Network on Friday, December 16 at 6 p.m. ET/PT with the premiere of Justice League Action. The Warner Bros. Animation series kicks off with a four-part special, “Shazam Slam,” with new episodes premiering Saturday mornings on CN starting Dec. 24.
Justice League Action boasts plenty of awesome baddy-battling as well as character-driven humor — not to mention the animated series return of fan-favorite voice actor Kevin Conroy as Batman (plus an all-star lineup of regular and guest cast voices, including Mark Hamill as Joker, James Woods as Lex Luthor and Diedrich Bader as Booster Gold).
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.
