What do we know so far? What are your thoughts? Speculation?
Looking at these silhouettes and with your speculation of JLA standing for Justice League Animated (which reminds me of Transformers Animated) ... is this feeling a little DJW-ish? It wouldn't surprise me if this was a Wyatt thing...
I think I see Flash between Firestorm and Huntress/Batgirl
Everyone else but Superman looks decent.
Solid VA cast as well.
Andrew Dickman https://twitter.com/AWDtwit?lang=en (who also worked on early TTGO!) might also be working on this as well.
One episode will probably be Shazam's origins. The Wizard was voiced by Carl Reiner, assuming it's pre-flashpoint Wizard.
Conroy and Dorne are also VA's.
I just hope the look and art is iconic enough to sell merchandise, and the story telling is as good as YJ and TAS.
My guess is the core lineup will be the same as animated dtv and the movies. DC is going to want the same lineup from now on across all their media.

JLA will follow its predecessor Young Justice and aim for a mature story of some sort albeit it'll incorporate humour and action to balance out the seriousness and dark themes i.e., plot a will be the main story and plot b something quirky and lighthearted.
That's what they did. The whole debacle with Beware the Batman was the last straw and it's what got Snyder fired.
Of course they were toy commercials. The problem was, CN didn't get any money off of the toys, DC and the toy company get all of it.
Therefore CN didn't want to air it, and would actively sabotage it so that it would get low ratings so they'd have an excuse to cancel it and air their original programming, which they make money off of.
Not that guy, but I remember someone claimed that's what it was, considering Snyder "quit" around three months after the show was pulled from Cartoon Network and the show's creators were banned from talking to the press about it. So, something BAD happened behind the scenes.
Not to mention it's kind of an accomplishment to fuck up the handling of a sure cash cow like Batman. I mean, GL and YJ are unproven franchises, but Batman?
I still can't believe they refused to even finish airing all the episodes and Adult Swim had to pick up the slack.
They still air reruns of Batman cartoons in Europe every day.
GL and YJ both did really well though they just weren't drawing in toy revenue. YJ especially. Despite the claims from Dini and others about it being because it had high female and adult viewership Weisman has been firm that it's because the toys sold badly.
Which was because Mattel really bungled the line something fierce.
I'd argue the season 2 timeskip alienating people kind of screwed things over too plus CN constantly delaying episodes that the production crew stated were 100% finished.
But lots of shows don't draw in merch revenue. Steven Universe doesn't have toys, and Regular Show toys aren't really flying off the shelves. Adventure Time is probably the only show really drawing in toy money since they don't really see any of the Titans money.
There wasn't any real reason to cancel the two. They could have lived on with YJ refocusing how it releases merchandise.
Not even that, but they sold the rights and didn't tell Toonami, and they had to a last-minute marathon to finish them.
Networks usually write up older shows as losses for tax. Why would they want to get rid of it so fast?
Yeah. Deep into season 2. And they're just funko stuff aren't they?
Its not a full blown line of toys. The show is living more off shirt and other merch sales. No reason YJ and GL couldn't have. It was just an easy excuse to execute DC Nation.
Yeah, they only had a collector's figure and some scattered merchandise here and there.
Scroll down to the Warner Animation section.
It was listed on a couple of guy's resumes on LinkedIn, but they were deleted later.
Please, be a legit animated series. None of this flash/tween TTGo bullshit they're pulling now.
I wish they would get their act together and make a new DCAU worth following and watching again.
>What do we know so far?
It's called 'JLA.'
>What are your thoughts?
"When are we going to find out anything about this other than the fact it's called 'JLA?'"
"I think that's J'onn next to Batman."
