FINALLY: ‘BEWARE THE BATMAN’ AND THE COMPLETE ‘YOUNG JUSTICE’ SEASON 1 COMING TO BLU-RAY
Based on the DC Comics superheroes, Beware the Batman and Young Justice are two examples of animated shows that haven’t exactly been treated well. Both Warner Bros. series were unceremoniously pulled from Cartoon Network, only to return to burn off episodes (in some cases, in the middle of the night).
Treatment like that would seemingly indicated little commitment to release the series on home video, but never fear, fans. Warner Archive announced this week that it will release the second part of Beware the Batman’s first season and the complete first season of Young Justice on Blu-Ray. Along with those, the company will also offer the full second season of Batman: The Brave and the Bold, and the classic 1960s Aquaman animated series will be available through Warner Archive’s streaming service.
All the Blu-Rays will be available Sept. 30; the Aquaman cartoon is up and available for streaming right now.

Ahead of its presentation to advertisers and promotional partners — known in television as “upfronts” —Cartoon Network confirmed what new and returning series will be on the slate for the 2013 and 2014 seasons. While such ComicsAlliance favorites as Adventure Time and Regular Show will return with new seasons and specials, it seems we’ll not see new installments of Green Lantern: The Animated Series orYoung Justice. But in happier superhero news, Cartoon Network announced the long awaited return of thePowerpuff Girls in a new CG-animated special, and the much anticipated Beware the Batman and Teen Titans Go! will finally make their premieres later this year.
