Justice League Confusion

A little while back there was this:

In September, a photo surfaced online indicating that Cartoon Network was gearing up for another animated Justice League series. While Warner Bros. declined to comment to CBR News at the time, the photo showed a wall filled with posters representing the cable network's current slate of programming, with a poster emblazoned with the unmistakable "JLA" logo and silhouettes of over a dozen heroes. ...

And then this.


Following the discovery of the animated Justice League poster from a month ago, now a new animated Justice League series is confirmed by Cartoon Network.

Cartoon Network Canada responded to a fan question on their Facebook page with (via toonzone.net): "We will be premiering a new Justice League series, but not likely until next Fall."

As noted by a forum poster, the Cartoon Network shows usually air later in Canada than in the U.S., so that would mean the new Justice League animated series - speculated to be titled "Justice League Action" - would debut at least in the Fall of 2016. ...

But then today there was this: ...

What Does 'Cartoon Network Cannot Confirm That a New JUSTICE LEAGUE Series Is In Development' Mean'?

Reports surfaced Tuesday that Cartoon Network Canada had confirmed the development of a new Justice League cartoon scheduled to hit airwaves in late 2016, with World's Finest Online, the site that broke the story, speculating that the title would be "Justice League Action."

However, Polygon was able to contact a representative of Cartoon Network who told them, "We cannot confirm that a new Justice League series is in development," before another Cartoon Network spokesperson added "Cartoon Network U.S. makes those announcements, not Cartoon Network Canada." ...

Pretty breathless, newsworthy stuff. But what's the fuss? On August 31st there was this small pice of info:

Warner Bros. Animation

WWE Meets Jetsons
Be Cool, Scooby Doo
Wabbit – wrapping up ... for now.
Bunnicula – multi episodes
Justice League Action – multi episodes
Mike Tyson Mysteries – multi episodes
Teen Titans Go! – multi episodes

So the information was out there. The citizenry simply needed eyes to see.
