Earlier this morning, a press release was issued to boast Cartoon Network's upcoming block of cartoons. New shows such as Beware The Batman and Teen Titans Go! were on the release, but two glared out as missing, Green Lantern: The Animated Series and Young Justice. Speculation was that the shows would be ending their runs, and now Newsarama has confirmed from a source at Warner Brothers Animation that the shows will wrap up their runs at seasons end.

It is expected that Beware The Batman as well as Teen Titans Go! will take the place of the canceled shows. It should also be noted that Star Wars: The Clone Wars was excluded from the list as well. This was because the show, as expected with Disney's acquisition of LucasFilm, will be making a transition to Disney programing.

not surprised,i never know when they are on.they show half a dozen episodes & then take them off only for them to return say 3 months later.

can't be bothered trying to watch a show like that.

God damn you Warner Bros!!!!!

God bless it!

I didn't watch either show, so I don't care all that much.

But fans that did watch them, I feel your pain. It sucked ass for me when The Avengers: EMH and Spectacular Spider-Man got cancelled.

But, life moves on, new shows arise. Hopefully, they won't be as shitty as Ultimate Spider-Man.

punkstealingluggage - 1/28/2013, 11:56 AM
Damn...I really enjoyed Young Justice. And i hardly ever catch cartoons anymore.
Dynamo - 1/28/2013, 11:56 AM
Young Justice is possibly the most underrated of any superhero show, ever.
Mystery - 1/28/2013, 11:57 AM
You cancelled Young Justice...YOUNG JUSTICE!! WHAT THE HELL!
cyclopstb - 1/28/2013, 11:57 AM
WHAT ? ARE THEY CRAZY ?
KALel3412 - 1/28/2013, 11:57 AM
im a huge dc guy but im so sick of all the batman crap!!! let some other characters shine damn it.
pesmerga44 - 1/28/2013, 11:58 AM
[frick] YOU CARTOON NETWORK YOU HAVE THE WORST EXECUTIVES IN TV HISTORY. They cancel these great shows and yet continue shows like Ben 10 that long out ran its welcome seasons ago, Annoying Orange, and get new really shitty shows like Awesome Crew. Well who here is surprised by this they have continually shown to have no understanding of the quality shows that they have and love to cancel them out of the blue examples include Samurai Jack, Symbionic Titan and even Thundercats so a big middle finger to CN from me.

WTF Young Justice are they crazy
TayDee - 1/28/2013, 11:59 AM
No comic book cartoon has mattered since Spectacular Spiderman was canceled.
StrangerX - 1/28/2013, 12:00 PM
WTF IS THIS SHIT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
OnLeatherWings - 1/28/2013, 12:00 PM
These are the only good superhero shows on right now! Wtf
silverdog - 1/28/2013, 12:01 PM
not surprised.. if its not batman or superman, they dont even give it a chance.

DC: "no young justice. but enjoy another batman rehash.. now with 90s looking cheap c.g.i."
CaptainObvious - 1/28/2013, 12:02 PM
Spectacular Spider-Man all over again.
punkstealingluggage - 1/28/2013, 12:02 PM
I'm 36 and I happen to really enjoy Ultimate Spider-Man. Great voice cast (Clark Gregg, Stan Lee, J.K. Simmons), classic Marvel references, etc...It's a lot of fun.
DrHorrible - 1/28/2013, 12:04 PM
@Dynamo I'd say the exact opposite. I saw people all the time on reviews of Avengers: EMH trashing it and praising Young Justice. It was annoying as hell.

Honestly, I watched the show a few times and thought it was decent. Nothing more. I feel your pain, but don't say it's "underrated" when it seemed like everyone and their mother were watching it (which actually isn't true at all).
DrDoom - 1/28/2013, 12:05 PM
This is what happens when fans like things.... executives can them.
StrangerX - 1/28/2013, 12:06 PM
This is so [frick]ing retarded. I was just talking about DC nation and thinking they should extend it to 4 shows, but i guess that wont be happening.
JULEZ13 - 1/28/2013, 12:06 PM
NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!

THIS IS SOOOOOO STUPID!!! HOW ARE YOU GONNA HAVE A "DC BLOCK" WITH ONLY 2 SHOWS!!!! THIS WAS THEIR CHANCE TO EXTEND IT TO 2 HOURS WORTH OF DC SUPERHEROES!!!

FRICK YOU CARTOON NETWORK!!!! FRICK YOU!!!

I thought there would be some hope of you becoming great again, but you have shown me that I was wrong.

GO FRICK YOURSELF!!!

Really? That blows. GL is a great cartoon. I was really looking forward to them expanding the mythos in the next couple seasons. So much for that. At the same time, you had to see something coming with the way CN just took both shows off only two episodes in. I'll bet they were just going to stop showing them altogether, but the fan backlash made them rethink their decision. Either way, I'm dissappointed.
TonyChu - 1/28/2013, 12:09 PM
[frick] You CN!! You just canceled two of your best shows on your channel that has a large fan base and for what another Batman cartoon and a watered down Teen Titans. This is Spectacular Spiderman, Avengers Earth Mightiest Heroes and Wolverine and the Xmen times 2. Congratulations Time Warner, you guys take the cake for the most [frick]ing stupidest network executives along side the dumb [frick]s who canceled Firefly.
Name - 1/28/2013, 12:09 PM
As long as they keep producing adventure time episodes im good.
rodddb - 1/28/2013, 12:11 PM
I thought GL was a very good show. YJ was ok but if they go with TT, it needs to be more in line with the comics with some continuity.

Superboy
Red Robin
Kid Flash
ICON (Just make him a teen)
Wonder Girl
Nightwing

JULEZ13 - 1/28/2013, 12:11 PM
I'm not even gonna lie. Even though I hate CGI cartoons GL was actually pretty good. Would've been much more watchable if it were done in Young Justice's animation style.

OH YOUNG JUSTICE!!! HOW CAN THEY DO THIS TO YOU!?!?!!!

AHHHHHHH!!!!! X,O

DAMN YOU CN!!! DAMN YOU!!!!
TDKRnry88 - 1/28/2013, 12:11 PM
Green Lantern just can't get a break... And why cancel a show that was consistently good? There was so much material to mine from and they were doing a god job of it too!
MrEko - 1/28/2013, 12:11 PM
[frick] this.
[frick] CN.
[frick] DC.
[frick] WB.
[frick] Me.

I hope Greg Weisman jumps ship to Marvel Animation, WB & DC is run by a bunch of bloody idiots.
StrangerX - 1/28/2013, 12:11 PM
BTW- I have no interest really in that new Batman show, and I'm tired of Teen Titans
JatevinM - 1/28/2013, 12:12 PM
Really? Really Cartoon Network..? [frick] YOU
DrDoom - 1/28/2013, 12:12 PM
I have to ask.... why do people cancel shows and then replace them with copies?

Avengers EMH being cancelled for Avengers Assemble
Young Justice being cancelled for Teen Titans Go
Spectacular Spiderman being cancelled for Ultimate Spiderman

Why not just keep the old [frick]ing show?
Goggles - 1/28/2013, 12:12 PM
Go die in a hole, Cartoon Network.

Facade - 1/28/2013, 12:13 PM
Ain't that a bitch? And I just got this coat outta the cleaners!
