Cartoon Network Hires Kevin Conroy, Mark Hamill For Animated Justice League Action


Warner Bros. Animation made a lot of folks happy today by announcing voice actors Kevin Conroy and Mark Hamill are joining the new Cartoon Network series Justice League Action. writes:

Featuring the return of Kevin Conroy as Batman, the Dark Knight will join with Superman and Wonder Woman and the rest of DC’s iconic team of heroes in a series that promises to put the action back in heroics. 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. Episodes will be eleven minutes in length, meaning that the action will be tightly-paced and exciting. And awesome!

Along with Conroy, Cartoon Network have announced that several other beloved DC Animated voice actors will be contributing to the series, including Mark Hamill as the Joker (!!!), James Woods as Lex Luthor, Diedrich Bader as Booster Gold and much more. Sam Register (Teen Titans Go!) will serve as executive producer with Butch Lukic (Justice League, Batman Beyond), Alan Burnett (Batman: The Animated Series) and Jim Krieg (Green Lantern: The Animated Series) serving as producers.

While it’s not the Bruce Timm-verse, it’s still very exciting to have Conroy, Hamill and others returning to a Justice League series. Batman: The Animated series had a big impact on me in my formative years and I fell hard for Justice League and Justice League Unlimited later on in life.

The first poster looks par for the course but I actually didn’t notice at first there are lighter sketch versions of Hawkman, Green Arrow, Zatanna, Blue Beetle, Darkseid and more in the background.

No release date has been announced yet but what do you make of the news?
