    Default DC Nation Gets A Shakeup In New Cartoon Network Schedules - Young Justice And Green Lantern Nixed

    As expected, neither Young Justice or Green Lantern are on Cartoon Network's newly published list of new or returning shows.

    DC Nation will be topped up withTeen Titans Go! and Beware The Batman. Perhaps those are more merchandise friendly, eh?



    Teen Titans Go!: Featuring the return of Robin, Starfire, Raven, Beast Boy and Cyborg in all-new, comedic adventures, Teen Titans Go! will premiere in April 2013. Character-driven comedy is the order of the day as this new take on the superhero series focuses on the funny business that happens between saving the world and living together as teenagers without adult supervision. The series stars the principal voice cast from the original Teen Titans, and is produced by Warner Bros. Animation.

    Beware the Batman: A cool, new take on the classic Dark Knight franchise, Beware the Batman incorporates Batman?s core characters with a rogue gallery of new villains not previously seen in animated form. Along with backup from ex-secret agent Alfred and lethal swordstress Katana, the Dark Knight faces the twisted machinations of Gotham City?s criminal underworld led by the likes of Anarky, Professor Pyg, Mister Toad and Magpie. Produced by Warner Bros. Animation, this action-packed detective thriller deftly redefines what we have come to know as a ?Batman show.? Featuring cutting-edge CGI visuals, Beware the Batman, based on characters from DC Comics, is coming to Cartoon Network?s DC Nation block in Summer 2013.
    Elsewhere on the schedule, Cartoon Network are also bringing back The Powerpuff Girls, albeit in reworked, redesigned CG and without their creator, Craig McCracken.

    Below is the rest of Cartoon Network's press release. I'm curious about the Lego Yoda specials, happy to see Mystery Inc. back and looking forward to the Adventure Time special.

    CARTOON NETWORK NEW SERIES

    Incredible Crew: Incredible Crew, is a live-action, half-hour, sketch comedy series from producer and entertainer Nick Cannon. Every episode of this high-energy, fast-paced show delivers hilarious comedy bits, outrageous hidden camera pranks, original music videos and commercial parodies all with a distinct attitude?a contemporary blend of internet sensibility mixed with kid imagination. Incredible Crew showcases six up-and-coming young comedy stars featured in diverse roles in every genre Shauna Case (American Horror Story), Shameik Moore (Joyful Noise), Tristan Pasterick, Chanelle Peloso (Level Up), Jeremy Shada (Adventure Time) and Brandon Soo Hoo (Enders Game, Tropic Thunder). Nick Cannon serves as executive producer of Incredible Crew along with Michael Goldman and Scott Tomlinson. The series is produced by Cartoon Network Studios in association with NCredible Entertainment.

    Steven Universe: Slated to debut in 2013, Steven Universe is a coming-of-age story told from the perspective of Steven, the youngest member of a team of magical Guardians of the Universe. The animated series was conceived as part of the shorts development initiative at Cartoon Network Studios, and is created by Emmy? and Annie Award-nominated writer and storyboard artist Rebecca Sugar (Adventure Time). Sugar is Cartoon Network?s first solo female show creator.

    Uncle Grandpa: Also slated for 2013, Uncle Grandpa is based upon the Emmy?-nominated short of the same name and follows the exploits of Uncle Grandpa?everyone in the world?s ?magical? uncle and grandpa. Created and executive produced by Pete Browngardt (creator of Cartoon Network?s Emmy?, Annie and Annecy Cristal Award-winning Secret Mountain Fort Awesome), Uncle Grandpa was conceived as part of the shorts development program at Cartoon Network Studios.

    Clarence: From creator Skyler Page, Clarence is a new original animated series about an optimistic boy who wants to do everything. Because everything is amazing! Clarence was conceived as part of the shorts development program at Cartoon Network Studios.

    Legends of Chima: In the mystical land of CHIMA, Laval the Lion and Cragger the Crocodile are the best of friends. An innocent escapade results in Cragger getting his first experience with the CHI, a powerful and sacred resource important to the delicate balance of CHIMA. The CHI gives awesome power to the user but needs to be managed carefully and certainly not by young adventurous animals. From LEGO, creator of Cartoon Network?s powerhouse action-adventure series Ninjago: Masters of Spinjitzu, Legends of Chima will premiere in Summer 2013.

    Grojband: 12-year-old Corey is the front man for a rockin? garage band. There?s just one problem: Corey?s lyrics stink. He just can?t think of anything cool to write about, until?he finds his sister?s diary that?s full of ?teen angst and junk? and decides to use each diary entry as inspiration for crowd pleasing, heart stopping, foot stomping hit songs. Grojband is distributed by FremantleMedia Ltd. and produced by Fresh TV, creator of the hit animated reality franchise Total Drama Island.

    The Tom and Jerry Show: The iconic cat and mouse rivals are back in The Tom and Jerry Show, a fresh take on the classic series. Preserving the look, characters and sensibility of the original, the all-new series shines a brightly colored, high-definition lens on the madcap slapstick and never-ending battle that has made Tom and Jerry two of the most beloved characters of all time. The Tom and Jerry Show is produced by Warner Bros. Animation.

    Total Drama All Stars: Total Drama is back, but this time the team at Fresh TV have assembled the best loved and most hated contestants from seasons past to compete ? Heroes vs. Villains style! Total Drama Island is produced by Fresh TV and distributed by CAKE Distribution.

    I don't give Rob Liefeld a lot of credit for anything but a while ago he said that DC's big problem is that they don't build their bench. This is disappointing, to me as a fan of young Justice. So you replace it with a Teen Titans redux and ANOTHER Batman cartoon? How about the Flash? you can't build a flash series or toy line based on the Flash and his Rouges? really? Maybe expand Ameythyst into a series?

    The failure of Green Lantern is complete: failed as movie and now failed as a childrens cartoon. You would think that a force of aliens and humans with magic rings would be solid gold kids tv? Obviously not.

    Glad that we are getting more Teen Titans. I was always surprised that they went for Young Justice instead TT, after all TT is historically the much better known team.

    Personally I want a Flash cartoon, but given the way GL did I won't hold my breathe.

    It looks like it's intended to look stylized that way. Won't be to everyone's tastes, but it's not an incompetent design.

    I'm really sad to see Young Justice go, as it was my favourite rendition of the DCU. It was certainly leagues (pun intended) better than the current 52 universe.

    That said, even if it's not returning, I hope they get to finish their story, at least.

    Resolve all the storylines and I'll be cool. If YJ ends on a cliffhanger, I'mma be pissed.
