Support is building amongst both fans and cast members of the “Justice League” animated series for Warner Bros. to approve a “reunion” movie.
Airing on Cartoon Network from 2001-2006 as first “Justice League” and then “Justice League Unlimited”, the animated series is considered by many fans to be a triumph in so many ways. Not only was the cast amazing, but the animation and stories captured the imagination of a generation of fans who hold out hope for more adventures of their favorite animated DC Superheroes.
“I’m often at Comic-Cons across the country where I get to interact with the audience, and a frequently asked question is why there hasn’t been a Justice League animated movie based on the animated TV series,” Kevin Conroy (the voice of Batman) told The Hollywood Reporter. “There’s a large and loyal fan base there that you’d think the studio would want to tap into. To me it’s a no-brainer.”
Wonder Woman actress Susan Eisenberg says, “I would just love to see a story where The League is united in its fight of good vs. evil, with some romance and levity thrown in for good measure!”
“There are so many fans that grew up on Justice League on Cartoon Network that seem to want to reboot some sort of movie or limited series,” says Superman actor George Newbern.
Fans have taken to Twitter with the hashtag #JLReunion, petitioning Warner Bros. Home Entertainment to green light some kind of reunion film bringing the cast and characters back together.
Even celebrated animation director Andrea Romano has told the cast she will come out of retirement should a movie materialize.
As fans, we can only hope that Warner Bros. Animation will give the idea serious thought.
