These are some good shorts. They really leave you wanting to see more!

Billy Batson (Zach Callison)
Superman/Shazam!: The Return of Black Adam DC Showcase: Superman/Shazam!: The Return of Black Adam (IMDb.com)
I was a little confused about what happened at the end of this short. That scene happened so quickly, I had to go back and read the dialogue in order to understand it.

Captain Marvel and Black Adam duke it out.
Tawny: "Aged 5,000 years in a single moment... Harsh."
Billy: "I thought the Wizard was..."
Tawny : "As a doorknob."

Shazam (James Garner)
[20151019:] Even more explicitly, Tawny threatened the Wizard (who was actually dead) would send Black Adam so far that it would take 10,000 years to get back. Deciding he'd rather die, Black Adam says "Shazam!" and ages 5,000 years in a single moment. Tawny then confirms that he tricked Black Adam.

Jim Corrigan / The Spectre (Gary Cole)

The Spectre DC Showcase: The Spectre (IMDb.com)
I didn't know about the Spectre before today. He's crazy, in a good way.

Green Arrow / Oliver Queen (Neal McDonough)
Black Canary (Grey DeLisle)
Green Arrow DC Showcase: Green Arrow (IMDb.com)
Nice little story for Green Arrow.

Jonah Hex (Thomas Jane)
Madame Lorraine (Linda Hamilton) and Red Doc (Michael Rooker)
Jonah Hex DC Showcase: Jonah Hex (IMDb.com)
I didn't know about Jonah Hex before today. Apparently a terrible live-action film based on the character came out in 2010.
