“Justice League” And “Justice League Unlimited,” “The Batman,” “Static Shock,” More, Coming February 2021 To HBO Max

HBO Max has announced that Justice League, Justice League Unlimited and Batman: The Brave and The Bold will be joining the streaming service starting February 1, 2021, with Static Shock and The Batman to be available starting February 15, 2021. HBO Max is an American-based subscription video on demand streaming service from AT&T’s Warner Media, which also owns publisher DC Comics and its characters.




Warner Media confirms all 52 episodes of Justice League will be available, as will all 39 episodes of its sequel series, Justice League Unlimited. Every episode of Static Shock, Batman: The Brave and the Bold, as well as The Batman and its spin-off movie, The Batman vs. Dracula, will also be streamable on HBO Max. The majority of the DC Comics-based animated and live-action content was previously available on the DC Universe streaming service, which became a comics-exclusive streaming platform in January 2021.

The World’s Finest can also confirm exclusively, courtesy of HBO Max, that both Static Shock and The Batman will be available on the streaming service in high-definition widescreen, a first for both of these series in terms of home media releases.

HBO Max and Warner Media have provided program descriptions for Justice League, Justice League Unlimited, Batman: The Brave and The Bold, Static Shock and The Batman, all of which are available below:

Static Shock
Based on characters from the DC Comics series, superhero Virgil Hawkins and his classmates confront real problems and issues faced by today’s teens: peer pressure, gangs and growing up in an ethnically diverse, urban neighborhood. But helping people and making a positive impact in his community gives a real charge to this newfound superhero in the animated adventures of Static Shock.

The Batman
In Gotham, a metropolis where shadows run long and deep, lives The Batman. He’s in his mid-twenties and just finding his way as protector, defender and Caped Crusader, while maintaining his public persona as billionaire bachelor Bruce Wayne. This younger Batman confronts updated versions of familiar foes, meeting each member of his classic Rogues’ Gallery for the first time. With the likes of Joker, Penguin, Catwoman, Mr. Freeze, Riddler and Man-Bat, among others, the Dark Knight takes his war on crime to the next level, employing a new arsenal of experimental Bat-gadgets and amped-up Batmobile, all operated and linked by an advanced remote-controlled invention he dubs the “BatWave.” Join the most complex and intriguing character in comic book history for action-packed super heroic adventures that test the limits of this legendary character’s extraordinary physical prowess and super-sleuthing skills.

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.

Justice League
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.
