(Cartoon Network, November 26, 2016-June 3, 2018)
All of this led to WB quickly
abandoning Justice League Action. The series received little to no
promotion on the network. Episodes were quickly burned through over the next
year, with the last few being held over until the start of summer in 2018.
After that, it disappeared with very little fanfare. Fans of the show, as well
actors themselves, were left in question as to the ultimate fate of the
series. But, with the DCEU in chaos and ratings insufficient, it became
increasingly likely that WB quietly cancelled the series; fittingly ending it
at 52 episodes (not counting the shorts), which tended to be a default number for DC Comics.
produced a line of action
figures and vehicles in a 4-inch scale that was initially only available at
Toys R Us (but gradually found its way into
other stores) and in a
12-inch scale that was more widely available. Burger King also released 6 toys of their own in
their restaurants. BKOM Studios
released a mobile endless runner game called Justice
League Action Run. The Cartoon Network website also hosted three web
games: Orbital Chase, a Candy
Crush-type game; Nuclear Rescue, a platformer that required you to
switch between Leaguers at various points; and a coloring program. In
Bros. Home Entertainment released the complete series across two
DVD sets. The series was made available to purchase on Prime
Play and Apple
TV, and could be streamed on Cartoon Network’s website.
|Kevin Conroy, signing his iconic role.
Sadly, this was the last time
Conroy would voice Batman regularly in a series. He had several more outings
with the character in an episode of Teen Titans Go!
and Scooby-Doo and
Guess Who?, the video games LEGO DC Super-Villains
the animated movie Justice
League vs. the Fatal Five, and made his only live-action appearance
in the Arrowverse’s
Crisis on Infinite
Earths crossover event. He was also slated to reprise the Thomas Wayne role for the
Caped Crusader; whose fate was left ambiguous when the WB/Discovery merger resulted in its
being dropped from HBO Max and Cartoon
Network. If the series ever manages
to find a home, it will be one of his final performances as Conroy died on
November 10, 2022 after a brief
bout with cancer.
