Batman: The Brave and the Bold has ended so we've been left with a void when it comes to animated Batman programming. We've heard that the next show will be entitled Beware the Batman. Little information has been released before but today an official teaser has surfaced.
What's the angle on this incarnation of Batman?
A cool, new take on the classic Dark Knight franchise, Beware the Batman incorporates Batman’s core characters with a rogues gallery of new villains not previously seen in animated form. Along with backup from ex-secret agent Alfred and lethal swordstress Katana, the Dark Knight faces the twisted machinations of Gotham City’s criminal underworld led by the likes of Anarky, Professor Pyg, Mister Toad and Magpie. Produced by Warner Bros. Animation, this action-packed detective thriller deftly redefines what we have come to know as a “Batman show.” Featuring cutting-edge CGI visuals to match the intricate twists and turns of the narrative, Batman steps out of the shadows and into the spotlight for an entirely new generation of fans. With WBA’s Sam Register executive producing, and Batman Beyond’s Glen Murakami and Scooby-Doo! Mystery Incorporated’s Mitch Watson producing, Beware the Batman, based on characters from DC Comics, is coming soon to Cartoon Network!
The original image listed the show as being released in 2013. SuperHeroHype has mentioned it's due later this year. The idea of a CGI Batman series could give us a fresh take on the Caped Crusader. You can bet we'll keep you updated as soon as we discover more information.
