Kevin Conroy will return to his iconic role as the voice of Batman, and the Justice League will return to a new Cartoon Network animated series, but one that appears to be different in tone to previous incarnations.
Looking more like a demographic cousin to Teen Titans Go! than a revival of Justice League Unlimited, Justice League Action is seemingly Warner Bros. Animation's answer to the March kick-off of the feature film Justice League in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.
Only initially announced as "coming soon", each episode of Justice League Action will be an action-heavy 11 minutes, and likely geared toward the 2-11 and "all key Boys" demographics Teen Titans Go! excels in.
"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," reads Cartoon Network's announcement. "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."
In addition to Conroy reprising his fan-favorite role as Batman, Cartoon Network promises "an all-star lineup of regular and guest cast voices, including Mark Hamill as Joker, James Woods as Lex Luthor, Diedrich Bader as Booster Gold and many more portraying your favorite DC Comics Super Heroes and Super-Villains."

The series will be executive produced by Sam Register (Teen Titans Go!) along with producers Butch Lukic (Justice League, Batman Beyond), Alan Burnett (Batman: The Animated Series) and Jim Krieg (Green Lantern: The Animated Series).
