Cartoon network released a press release for their upcoming DC shows today. Missing were Young Justice and Green Lantern. The show had been rumored to be canclled or near axed for quite some time. After this press release things looked really gloom. Now Green Lantern: The Animated Series” producer Giancarlo Volpe just posted on Twitter that the series has been officially cancelled. He also posted a link to a petition to Cartoon Network hoping to spark interest to renew both “Young Justice” and “Green Lantern” with over 1000 signatures so far.
The only good news today is we still have two new DC shows below is the press release they issued on Teen titans go and Beware the Batman:
Teen Titans Go!: Featuring the return of Robin, Starfire, Raven, Beast Boy and Cyborg in all-new, comedic adventures, Teen Titans Go! will premiere in April 2013. Character-driven comedy is the order of the day as this new take on the superhero series focuses on the funny business that happens between saving the world and living together as teenagers without adult supervision. The series stars the principal voice cast from the original Teen Titans, and is produced by Warner Bros. Animation.
Beware the Batman: A cool, new take on the classic Dark Knight franchise, Beware the Batman incorporates Batman’s core characters with a rogue gallery of new villains not previously seen in animated form. Along with backup from ex-secret agent Alfred and lethal swordstress Katana, the Dark Knight faces the twisted machinations of Gotham City’s criminal underworld led by the likes of Anarky, Professor Pyg, Mister Toad and Magpie. Produced by Warner Bros. Animation, this action-packed detective thriller deftly redefines what we have come to know as a “Batman show.” Featuring cutting-edge CGI visuals, Beware the Batman, based on characters from DC Comics, is coming to Cartoon Network’s DC Nation block in Summer 2013.
