The Justice League may be hitting theaters in live action form next year, but the super team will be returning in animated form to their former home.
Cartoon Network has announced Justice League Action, a new animated series comprised of 11-minute episodes. As they prepare to unite in theaters in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Batman, Superman, and Wonder Woman will lead this incarnation of the team with a revolving team of fellow DC heroes. The short format mirrors that of Cartoon Network’s other DC animated series Teen Titans Go!, which was also preceded by a traditional half-hour Teen Titans animated series.
