Justice League Action, the newest cartoon iteration of the superhero team, is ready to take flight on Cartoon Network on Friday, December 16, 2016 at 6 pm ET/PT. The show…
Cartoon Network is giving fan-favorite vampire queen Marceline her own spin-off miniseries “Stakes” on November 14th, 2015.
At last week’s New York Comic Con, Cartoon Network released the first clip from the new series, a sing-a-long titled “Fry’s Song.”
A Reddit Mystery
The rumors started last month when Reddit user UnknownJ25 posted a photo purportedly taken at Cartoon Network headquarters, showing a wall covered in posters for shows both current and planned. Fans quickly zoomed in on the poster on the far right that appeared to advertise an heretofore unknown new JLA cartoon.
There was no way to confirm the authenticity of the photo, and Cartoon Network certainly wasn’t saying anything, so the existence of the cartoon remained pure speculation.
That’s where things would still stand today if not for the intrepid reporting of James Harvey from the Canadian superhero website World’s Finest. Harvey suspected that the photo was real, so he posed a question to Cartoon Network Canada on Facebook:
So Cartoon Network Canada’s Facebook guy accidentally confirmed the existence of a super-secret Justice League cartoon tentatively named Justice League Action that will be released next year sometime.
Fans were understandably ecstatic, and word of the new series spread like wildfire. So much so that Cartoon Network Canada attempted this rather insulting bit of damage control later that same day.
Are you buying this?
Ready for Justice League Action, coming to Canada next fall.
