Justice League Action series details:

Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman lead the DC Comics Super Heroes against their most infamous foes in adventures packed with relentless thrills, fun and action. No need to wait for the good stuff to start, each eleven-minute episode jumps in with lightning-paced action and 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.
The series will feature a different format from previous Justice League shows, with eleven-minute episodes similar to their comedy series Teen Titans Go!. The creative team is full of DC Animation alums with Sam Register (TTG!) executive producing, and Butch Lukic (Justice League, Batman Beyond), Alan Burnett (Batman: The Animated Series), and Jim Krieg (Green Lantern: The Animated Series) also producing.

That's apparently Mark Hamill as Swamp Thing. Very cool.
Agreed. Hamill's Swamp Thing sounds really nice and different without sounding like his voice work was altered too much after the recording. I also like how Batman took on all those zombies silently. This show really looks like Batman: The Brave and the Bold meets Justice League and I love it! I definitely expect to have a good time watching this whenever it starts airing in Canada (I guess some time in January).

Interesting WB isn't using their usuals (Lotto, Moi, Dong Woo) for DC shows. Sunmin and DR Movie are still good. Sunmin has been getting a lot of work recently with Steven Universe, PPG 2016, Ben 10, and now this.

The Cartoon Network UK YouTube channel uploaded a clip from "Zombie King":

Please use spoiler tags when discussing the video.
I was not expecting Mark Hamill's Swamp Thing to sound so...peppy :sweat:.

But hey, Swamp Thing :D!

Nice entrance by Zatanna. I feel like she and Batman are going to have a belligerent sexual tension thing going on :p.

I don't know if that's Dee Bradley Baker voicing the zombies, or even Fred Tatasciore; if it is Dee then I don't understand why he's not credited. I also expected Fred Tatasciore to reprise as Grundy, ditto with Lacey Chabert as Zatanna, though I gotta say, I didn't expect Damian O Hare as John Constantine.

Why they had to get Chabert back as Zatanna? Cant they bring Back Hale in the Role? I'm still mad She did'nt voice her in Injustice. Even though I gave Props for Justice League Dark getting a Different VA.

Probably for similar reasons why they didn't get Tim Daily or George Newman for Superman, Susan Eisenberg for Wonder Woman, Eric Lopez for Blue Beetle, or Brad Garret for Lobo. Shouldn't really be THAT big a problem. :shrug:

As long as they pick a VA that's right for the character, like Chabert as Zatanna (who's always fit like a glove in that role), I'm good ;).

It is for me Cause I prefer Zatanna with a Mature Voice, Chabert did well as the Teenage version but the Traditional does'nt work. It's like for a Upcoming for episode of the show they Make Killer Croc designed after Carnage Kabuto from One Punch man but 5 minutes later the character got beaten with his teeth fell out.

As long as they pick a VA that's right for the character, like Chabert as Zatanna (who's always fit like a glove in that role), I'm good ;).
As I Said. Only the Teenager Z, not the Adult. Hopefully Hale is Killer Frost in the Show and even Starfire too.

At this point, between season 2 of Young Justice, Injustice, and Infinite Crisis she's probably played an adult Zatanna more then she has a teenage Zee :sweat:.

Trick Or Threat 12/24/2016
I guess we'll find out soon enough, but I'm willing to bet that some of these are out of date. For example, Play Date seems to have replaced Speed Demon for the 17th December on CN UK and Trick or Threat seems to have replaced Freezer Burn on the 24th. Clearly CN UK won't be getting all of these this month because, for example, Luthor in Paradise, Hat Trick and Repulse! wouldn't all fit into a single 22-minute episode. Some of those Christmas Eve listings are probably for the United States and obviously the Shazam Slam one is definitely a US airing. Anyway, we'll see.

What would you do if you were in charge of Universal Kids?
Anybody remembered when Gerald McBoing Boing had Cartoon Network City Bumpers? I vaguely remembered them.
If you're reading this, please dip your fries in mayon(n)aise.
I have another voice actor following me on Twitter, David Sobolov. He's known for many roles , including Shockwave (Transformers Prime), Gorilla Grodd (The Flash 2014, Justice League Action), Drax (Guardians Of The Galaxy), Tatsurion the Unchained (Kaijudo), and many more . This is so awesome.
