“Justice League: Doom” Animated Feature, Cartoon Network Announcement Updates

An official announcement from Cartoon Network concerning the return of Young Justice, along with the regular timeslot debut of both Green Lantern: The Animated Series and the DC Nation programming block, could be coming as early as later this week. A representative for Cartoon Network informs The Worlds Finest that official announcements, in addition to supporting media, will soon be available to promote the highly-anticipated event. Cartoon Network has recently released programming details up to the first weekend of March 2012 – including details on a new episode of Young Justice, the return of Green Lantern: The Animated Series, and new timeslots for both series. Further details can be found here. Both cartoons are currently on hiatus from the network. DC Nation is slated to debut in March 2012, but no specific date is currently confirmed.

In continuing news, a representative for Warner Home Video has confirmed there will be no official website for the upcoming Justice League: Doom animated feature. This will be the first title in the DC Universe Animated Original Movie line to not have a website. The direct-to-video animated feature currently has both a Facebook page and Twitter account, continuing the trend of entertainment programs relying more on social media sites over self-produced promotional sites to attract an audience. All previous titles in the DC Universe Animated Original Movie line still have websites readily available to view. The Justice League: Doom animated feature debuts February 28th, 2012 on Blu-ray, DVD, OnDemand and for Download from Warner Home Video. Further details on this upcoming release are available at the The World’s Finest Justice League: Doom subsite.
