Robin, Aqualad, Kid Flash, Superboy, Miss Martian and Artemis as they splash across the 16×9 widescreen.
In this first season, a ‘junior’ Justice League bands together for purposes both light and dark – to honor the legacies they will one day inherit, and to be the Justice League’s secret weapon. From within their HQ The Cave, they embark on covert missions that would be impossible for the high profile Justice League. Batman (naturally) is their mission handler, »

Based on a video game, Batman: Arkham, which I do not play, I came into Batman: Assault on Arkham, without any particular predisposition. As the first editor of the Suicide Squad, I was intrigued to see how they would operate. As I feared, screenwriter Heath Corson totally misused the team in this violent, pointless direct-to-animated mess which is unleashed on Tuesday.
Amanda Waller (Cch Pounder) played within the gray areas of the DC Universe, picking damaged heroes and villains, as needed for missions. She made sure there was a field leader to keep them in line, and offered the heroes something they wanted and the villains a chance at clearing their records. Here, she collects a motley assortment of villains without a real rationale for each, putting them together for a mission that makes little sense. The silly MacGuffin here is that the Riddler (Matthew Gray Gubler) has stolen »

Our weekly round-up of all the latest superhero news and talking points, including Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, DC Cinematic Universe, Gotham, The Flash, Arrow, Batman: Assault on Arkham, Justice League: Throne of Atlantis, Young Justice, Teen Titans Go!, Guardians of the Galaxy, Avengers: Age of Ultron, Captain America 3, Black Panther, Daredevil, Deadpool, X-Men: Days of Future Past, The Fantastic Four, The Amazing Spider-Man 2, Venom Carnage, Kick-Ass 3 and more….
Well, the big showdown between Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Captain America 3 is no more, with Warner Bros. blinking and shifting the release of BvS away from Marvel’s May 6th 2016 date to March 25th 2016 (a wise move, considering it will now face very little in the way of competition). The news was followed by the announcement that Warner Bros. has finally pulled the trigger on a DC Cinematic Universe by setting a further Nine »

Good news for fans of Young Justice – the superhero team is returning to Cartoon Network, although sadly it’s not for a third season, but rather a crossover with DC Nation’s current animated series Teen Titans Go!.
Here’s the official logline for the episode: “After being scolded by the superhero team from Young Justice for their silliness and hijinks, the Titans decide to get more serious about superheroing.”
As yet, there’s no word on when the episode will air, but we’ll keep you updated.

WB Animation has confirmed to Newsarama that the fan favorite characters from Young Justice will be showing up on Teen Titans Go!. Newsarama reports the logline for the episode is as follows - "After being scolded by the superhero team from Young Justice for their silliness and hijinks, the Titans decide to get more serious about superheroing." Young Justice producers Brandon Vietti and Greg Weisman confirmed the news via twitter but also confirmed that they were not part of producing the crossover. Should be interesting to see how this plays out as both Beast Boy and Dick Grayson (Nightwing/Robin) are team members on both shows. »

Young Justice executive producer spoke to Cbr about his latest animation venture, Scooby-Doo! Wrestlemania Mystery, but closed out the interview by teasing a new Dcu animation project he's working on that I'm sure will have fans excited. Satuday Morning Cartoons haven't been the same since Young Justice: Invasion and Green Lantern:Tas went off the air. "Yes, I am back in the DC Universe! I can’t announce the project I’m working on yet but I’m really excited about it! It’s an entirely new thing for me and not connected to anything I’ve done in the past. I can’t wait to discuss it but it will have to wait a little longer." Of course, Vietti's caveat about the mystery project not being connected to any previous works means this is not another season or direct-to-video continuation of Young Justice. Bummer! But, Vietti never dissappoints, so I'm excited by this news, »
Writer Greg Weisman is best known for creating Disney's epic 1990s series Gargoyles, but he's also worked on a ton of other projects over the course of his career. I've been a fan of his work since Gargoyles, and he recently published a book called Rain of the Ghosts that I think a lot of you would enjoy. He has also been working on the highly anticipated Star Wars Rebels animated series for Disney and Lucasfilm, which is sure to be a hit.
Weisman was kind enough to take the time to answer a few questions for us regarding Gargoyles, Rain of the Ghosts and Star Wars Rebels. He shares his thoughts on a Gargoyles feature film, goes into detail about his new book, talks about his excitement for Star Wars Rebels, and answers a few other general questions. Our exclusive interview is definitely an interesting read, so check it out below! »

Disney and Lucasfilm Animation has been stepping up the promotion on Star Wars Rebels lately; over the past week, we've been introduced to hre new characters in Kanan (Freddie Prinze Jr.), Ezra Bridger (Taylor Gray), and the astromech Chopper and just yesterday we got our first glimpse of actual footage from the series thanks to two promos for the show, which you can view here. And now we've got another character introduction featurette, this time unveiling Zeb - a character from a newly-created race, who bears a striking resemblance to Ralph McQuarrie's original concept designs for Chewbacca.
"I think I actually screamed when I was booked to play Zeb," says prolific voice actor Steve Blum (The Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes, Wolverine and the X-Men). It is literally a role of a lifetime. I've been lucky enough to play some major superhero roles in my career, but to be given »
