Many, many, many exciting things were announced in a new press release from Cartoon Network, but the tidbit most relevant to you discriminating Comic Vine maniacs concerns DC NATION. Warner Bros, CN and DC Entertainment are banding together like a corporate Justice League to put out a solid block of programming on the channel that’ll showcase behind-the-scenes features and exclusive on-line content in addition to an exclusive selection of shows like GREEN LANTERN and YOUNG JUSTICE. Reading between the lines, it sounds like we might have some spots promoting current comics as well creator interviews.
It doesn’t say that explicitly, of course, but you'd expect that's what such company synergy would lead to, right? I figured it'd be an integrated update of the MARVEL ACTION HOUR of the 90s. == TEASER ==
There are a bunch of new shows coming down the pipe, with two transformed-and-continued brands in the new HOW TO TRAIN YOUR DRAGON and THUNDERCATS series as well as new iterations of BEN 10 and LOONEY TOONS. Out of all the mass of information in the press release, I’m maybe most intrigued by the note that Daffy Duck’s getting a girlfriend in that last show. Will feminine affection finally get him to mellow out after eighty odd years of tightly-wound daffiness?
Oh yeah... and CLONE WARS has been renewed for another season. Big surprise.
These are the titles of the new series, as well...
- THE PROBLEM SOLVERZ
- SECRET MOUNTAIN FORT AWESOME
- THE AMAZING WORLD OF GUMBALL
- LEVEL UP
- LEGO NINJAGO
