Cartoon Network has taken to the world stage to announce the release date for their newly animated Justice League Action series and released the first episode’s synopsis.
The first episode, entitled “Shazam Slam” pits the Dark Knight against Black Adam. Each episode in the series will be 11 minutes in length.
In “Shazam Slam,” the villainous Black Adam battles Batman on the Rock of Eternity and unleashes a horde of Djinn determined to turn the Earth back to its pre-human, volcanic state. Affected by the otherworldly powers of these primordial monsters, Batman becomes possessed and is turned into a giant flying Batmonster laying waste to the Hall of Justice, with only Superman capable of taking the fight to the Dark Knight. One by one, the Justice League – with the help of Shazam (voiced by Sean Astin) and The Wizard (voiced by Carl Reiner) – must hunt down and defeat each Djinn in order to yet again save the world from destruction.
