Cartoon Network is bringing viewers more of the beloved Justice League superheroes. DC Comics announced on its blog Friday that the channel will soon be the home of Justice League Action, a new, quarter-hour series from Warner Bros. Animation. Better still, the series will feature the voices of Kevin Conroy and Mark Hamill, who previously voiced Batman and the Joker, respectively, in previous installments of the TV franchise.

In the new series, Batman, Superman, and Wonder Woman will join faces with a rotating group of fellow DC Comics heroes to continue keeping the world safe. They’ll have to deal with a variety of dangerous threats, from invaders from space to strange magical forces. At just 11 minutes apiece, episodes are described as “tightly-paced,” but they’ll still be action-packed and “exciting.”

Conroy, who has worked on the series’ predecessors, Justice League and Justice League Unlimited, made sure to spread word of the latest addition, sharing a “photo” on Twitter of himself and Hamill.

Conroy and Hamill’s well-known voices will be joined by those of several other familiar voice actors, including James Wood (Lex Luthor), Diedrich Bader (Booster Gold), and more. The creative side is also packed with DC Comics vets. Sam Register (Teen Titans Go!) will serve as executive producer, while Butch Lukic (Justice League), Alan Burnett (Batman: The Animated Series), and Jim Krieg (Green Lantern: The Animated Series) will produce.

The Justice League’s TV and film presence has been especially notable of late and looks to continue to be. Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is set to hit theaters in March, with a two-part Justice League film coming in 2017 and 2019. Fans also have numerous standalone films starring Justice League characters to look forward to, so it’s definitely an exciting time to be a DC Comics lover.

No release date for Justice League Action has yet to be announced.

Deadpool & Wolverine: Everything we know about the film formerly known as Deadpool 3
DEadpool and Wolverine stand next to each other in Deadpool & Wolverine.

In retrospect, we should have suspected that Deadpool & Wolverine wouldn't keep its most famous co-star out of the title. In 2022, Ryan Reynolds coaxed Hugh Jackman into reprising his role as Wolverine for the first time since 2017's Logan. Once that happened, the name Deadpool 3 didn't fully convey how monumental this film would be.

So Marvel Studios has officially retitled it as Deadpool & Wolverine. Jackman has also humorously rebranded the film as Wolverine & [expletive], which would make this R-rated flick a lot harder to market!

Everything you need to know about The Last of Us season 2
Bella Ramsey and Pedro Pascal in The Last of Us.

Video game adaptations have failed to live up to the expectations of gamers for decades. That's why it's so refreshing that HBO's The Last of Us not only captures the spirit of the game that inspired it, but the show also stands as a work of art in its own right. This series has completely redefined what a video game adaptation can be, largely thanks to the showrunners, Craig Mazin and Neil Druckmann. Mazin previously created the critically acclaimed Chernobyl miniseries for HBO, while Druckmann co-created The Last of Us video game franchise.

Fans will have to wait at least another year for The Last of Us season 2 to arrive. But now that the show is inching closer to restarting production, we can share everything we know about The Last of Us season 2. Next season, the series continues the story of Joel and Ellie while also introducing some important characters from the second game, The Last of Us Part II.
