If you couldn't get enough of the Caped Crusader and the Man of Steel fighting in each other in Zack Snyder's Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, you'll love this clip from the premiere of the all-new quarter-hour animated series, Justice League Action.
Toy Man (Ken Jeong) created a Street Fighter-like video game (titled "Blvd Brawlers 2: JLA") that allows him to actually control the Justice League members featured in the game. Since the game features a two-player mode, Cyborg challenges Toy Man to a match. Being no fool, Toy Man quickly selects Superman, and before Cyborg can make his selection, Toy Man chooses Batman for him.
"Come on, Batman, doesn't have any powers!" Cyborg shouts in frustration, which provokes an unpleasant glare from The Dark Knight. Cyborg quickly adds, "Not that he needs any."
Once the game begins, there's lots of hilarious moments. Cyborg has some fun making The Dark Knight repeatedly shout, "I! Am! Batman!" As a fun nod to an inexplicable power in Superman II (1980), the Man of Steel pulls the 'S' off his chest and throws it and it wraps around Batman.
Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman lead the DC Comics Super Heroes against their most infamous foes in adventures packed with relentless thrills, fun and action. No need to wait for the good stuff to start, each eleven-minute episode jumps in with lightning-paced action and heroics. Whether defending the Earth, facing invaders from space, or battling the bizarre forces of magic, the always-rotating team of Justice League heroes, are up to any challenge.
The voice-cast features Kevin Conroy as Batman, Mark Hamill as the Joker, James Woods as Lex Luthor, Diedrich Bader as Booster Gold, Sean Astin as Shazam, Rachel Kimsey as Wonder Woman, Jason J. Lewis as Superman, Chris Diamantopoulos as Green Arrow, and Josh Keaton as Green Lantern.0comments
