The cast and crew of Justice League Action came to San Diego Comic-Con with teases of what's to come and tales of what makes their show unique. They spoke with SYFY WIRE about why JL Action is a fun experience for DC Comics fans -- including them!

"The DNA is there of those characters," producer Jim Krieg said, "like Booster's a little bit of a dummy in the comics, and maybe we dial that up to 11. But everybody is sort of an exaggerated version of what they are in the comics. Actors get it immediately, and they ride that train to the end of the world."

The actors are a mix of seasoned voice actors and some new to the experience of being behind the mic. For Jason J. Lewis, the voice of Superman, he said the scripts are "like reading a good comic book," and he pores over each one before going into the booth. However, Diedrich Bader (Booster Gold/Michael Jon Carter) joked, "I just show up and wing it. These guys know it's actually true."

The short-form Justice League Action, an action-packed and comedic show, airs on Cartoon Network. Check out the full interview below to learn more about the actors' process and hear some funny stories!
