All three series were added to HBO Max in February 2021. No explicit reason was given for the removal of all three programs.
HBO Max and Warner Media have provided the following program descriptions for Justice League, Justice League Unlimited and Batman: The Brave and The Bold, all of which are available below:
Batman: The Brave and The Bold
Batman isn’t going at it alone this time! The Caped Crusader teams up with heroes from across the DC Universe, delivering nonstop action and adventure with a touch of comic relief. Blue Beetle, Green Arrow, Aquaman and others fight crime alongside Batman, although their differing powers and personalities are often at odds with the Dark Knight’s style. While still based in Gotham, Batman often travels beyond the Gotham City limits, facing situations both unfamiliar and exhilarating. With formidable foes around every corner, Batman still relies on his stealth, resourcefulness, and limitless supply of cool gadgets to uphold justice.
In this action-packed adventure series, the world’s greatest superheroes, including Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Green Lantern, The Flash, Hawkgirl and Martian Manhunter, join forces as the Justice League to battle powerful villains, supernatural creatures and evil entities determined to take over the world and destroy the League. Based on the DC Comics characters.
Justice League Unlimited
In a world of extraterrestrial invasions, powerful sorcerers, vast shadowy conspiracies and ancient gods, the galaxy’s most powerful superheroes return to battle the allied villains and criminal plots that endanger the universe. Two years ago, the world’s greatest heroes banded together as the Justice League and dedicated themselves to battling threats too great for any single hero to handle. Since then, they’ve saved the world countless times from unimaginable dangers. But the price has been high. With their ranks diminished after fighting off an alien invasion and with new dangers arising at an ever-increasing pace, the remaining Justice League crime fighters realize that protecting the entire world is going to take more technology and manpower than they have at hand. A lot more. These heroes come home to roost in their high-tech Watchtower, sporting space-based energy weapons and a powered-up fleet of Javelin spaceships. The team members tap innovative matter-transporters that zip them from one location to another in a flash. Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman and Green Lantern continue to lead the universe’s most powerful superheroes, including such well-known defenders as Supergirl, Green Arrow and the Atom as well as Booster Gold, Hawk & Dove, Elongated Man, Mister Miracle, Big Barda and Zatanna. These fearless fighters and many others are the Justice League Unlimited.
