Legion and The Batman Premiere

Don't miss LEGION OF SUPER-HEROES and THE BATMAN, both premiering Saturday morning! LEGION boasts some of the TEEN TITANS staff, while THE BATMAN features the debut of Robin! Check 'em out!

LEGION OF SUPER HEROES, 11:00-11:30 am: In the year of "Superman Returns" at Warner Bros., Kids' WB! is proud to present a new series developed especially for the "Too Big For Your TV" block by Warner Bros. Animation, inspired by the DC Comics legend. One thousand years from now, a group of teenage super heroes travel back in time to recruit the greatest hero of all, Superman, and enlist him their fight against evil in the 31st Century. While their intentions were good, their time travel skills were not, and Lightning Lad, Saturn Girl, Brainiac 5, Phantom Girl, Bouncing Boy and Timber Wolf end up going too far back into the past, accidentally retrieving the young Superman instead. Together, this unlikely Legion of Super Heroes bands together to defend the rights of all free worlds and uphold the laws of the newly formed United Planets. That is, if they don't kill each other first. LEGION OF SUPER HEROES combines humor with high-stakes, grand-scale super heroics to create the ultimate sci-fi, super hero fantasy for kids of all ages. Each episode of this fast-paced, character-driven action comedy will pit Superboy and the Legion against otherworldly threats and adversaries who challenge the team on both super heroic and emotional levels. The series is executive produced by Sander Schwartz, and produced by Linda Steiner and James Tucker for Warner Bros. Animation. Look for some of the Teen Titans staff to be working on Legion of Superheroes!

THE BATMAN, 11:30 am-12:00 Noon: In the upcoming third season, the Dark Knight continues his relentless quest to rid Gotham City of its supervillains, but he's not alone. Robin joins the team, and the fabled Dynamic Duo is also occasionally joined by Batgirl. Harley Quinn, Black Mask, Killer Moth, the Everywhere Man and a brand-new Clayface join the rogues' gallery of villains, led by the Joker, Penguin and Riddler, who ceaselessly torment Batman and Gotham City. THE BATMAN is based upon the DC Comics characters and is executive produced by Sander Schwartz and Alan Burnett for Warner Bros. Animation. Duane Capizzi and Mike Goguen serve as supervising producers, and Linda Steiner and Jeff Matsuda are producers.

With "Teen Titans" wrapping up after its fifth season, Story Editor ROB HOEGEE was tapped to develop DC's newest super-series: THE LEGION OF SUPER-HEROES. Rob Hoegee on LEGION: "We've got a good mix of ex-Titans and Justice League talent. James Tucker has assembled a really impressive crew. We're also lucky to have AJ Vargas, who was the Associate Producer on Teen Titans with us as well. [...] Yeah, I was lucky enough to have both Amy [Wolfram] and David [Slack] come in and do an episode or two. I'm nearing the last legs of the first season of LEGION OF SUPER-HEROES. All I can say is they turned out great. Even the slightest hint about the storylines of their episodes would be too much of a spoiler!"

Rob took some time out of his busy schedule to talk with titanstower.com about the Teens of Tomorrow. Click here to read the interview!

    I know this has nothing to do with what I'm commenting on, I just wanted to see if you knew. Warner Bros. is doing another Teen Titans movie called, "Teen Titans: The Judas Contract," to be totally based on the comic book, not the animated series. Movie is scheduled to release in 2007. Actual release date isn't known. Just wanted to see if you knew.

    I'm glad that you posted this reminder for people, but are these times accurate in your time zone? Here in the Eastern Time Zone, "LOSH" & "The Batman" had their season premiers at 10:00 a.m. & 10:30, repectively (9 & 9:30, Central Time). All I'll say is, BEST. FREAKIN'. EPISODE. OF. "THE BATMAN". EVER!

    yeah, the times were taken from the original announcement. In my TiVo reliance, I never know when things air anymore! But yeah, I guess they changed the times-- sigh.

    the batman episode seemed rushed it should have been a two parter to explain dick grayson's past.

    I liked both series. By the time I'm posting this I have already seen two episodes of each series and I'm very pleased so far. Ilike their rendering of Timber Wolf and I also noticed that the space monster that they were fighting at the beginning of LOSH second episode was a bigger version of the mons ter that Jor-El fought in the premiere episode of the Superman WB Cartoon from the 90's.
