Lego DC Comics: “Batman Be-Leaguered”
Monday, October 27 at 6:00 p.m. (ET, PT) on Cartoon Network
Batman prides himself on being a loner, a totally self-sufficient one-man-band. Just ask anyone; Batgirl, Robin, Nightwing, Alfred… anyone. So, he is understandably irritated when his nightly cleanup of Gotham City villains is interrupted by Superman, who pesters Batman to join his new superhero team, The Justice League. After Batman makes it quite clear to the Man of Steel that his invitation has been declined, Superman flies off disappointed… whereupon he is overcome with a strange energy and vanishes!

Additional clips and images are slated to be released within the coming days. Lego DC Comics: Batman Be-Leaguered airs Monday, October 27th, 2014 at 6:00pm (ET/PT) on Cartoon Network. Stay tuned for additional updates right here at The World’s Finest.
