Why "beware the Batman" will be a good show

#1 Edited by MasterDetective (831 posts) - - Show Bio

When The New Batman Adventures came out, all fans were like

"This is sh*t, Batman TAS was better"

When The Batman came out, all fans were like

"This is sh*t, TNBA was better"

When Batman the Brave and the Bold came out, all fans were like

"This is sh*t, The Batman was better"

Now that Batman the Brave and the Bold is over, all fans are like

"OMG BTB looks horrible, BTBATB was a lot better"

Q.E.D

Wasn't the new Batman adventures the same show as the Animated Series?

That's a dumb reason.

The only one I really didn't like was the brave and the bold but aren't the animated and the new adventures the same thing?

Q.E.D

1) IT WILL 3-D!!! Complete with over-unusually distorted facial shape and expressions, as most CGI cartoons, including Iron Man: Armored Adventures, Star Wars: the Clone Wars, Green Lantern, and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, usually does.

2) Most cartoons these days, with only few rare exceptions, tends to over-make sure its demographics are the Elementary-age children; anyone above 13 who gives them a watch nowadays, would probably feel it's talking "down" on them.

3) Its unusual, unconventional, decision of choice of characters; Katana rather than Robin, and Anarky, Professor Pyg, Mister Toad, ect.

I really have zero interest in Beware the Batman. It's not a bad idea and it'll probably be decent. I just feel like DC Animation doesn't flesh out its ideas anymore. Its last few shows all ended way too soon. Why should I get invested in their latest off-the-wall idea, when it will probably only survive for one and a half seasons?

I'm aware of all of that, but we can't say anything 'til it aired

I'm always weary when shows/movies are pushed back from their original schedule.

It has Anarky. I'll watch it.

I will watch it though. I haven't watched any Batman animated show besides the original BTAS and a couple of episodes of The Batman and it seems like this show has potentials to be great.

So I didn't get your argument?

#16 Edited by LaserLambert (636 posts) - - Show Bio

TNBA sucked when held against the original series, and The Batman sucked in general, and Batman the Brave and the Bold was barely a Batman show (it was good but still).

As the main villain (yes, villain), and from every place I've heard, going to be played completely and contradictingly opposite than what he originally stood for.

This is a bad argument. All it really does is imply that the show will suck, and the next Batman show after that will suck more.

That isn't a very good argument, but it's not worse than the ones that try to explain why the show's gonna suck.

For now, we can't really tell if it's gonna be good or bad, and I have yet to see a coherent explanation on why someone thinks the show's gonna be bad.

@masterdetective: Ya your right but it would be good if it was in the same universe as GL

That's exactly why I couldn't get into Green Lantern TAS. It was just too obviously aimed at kids. YJ was such a nice surprise with the layers of complexity. Unfortunatly, I see this new Batman cartoon as being closer to another CGI kids thing than anything decent.

I'm 20 and I liked GLTAS, sure it wasn't very 'complex' but it wasn't childish too, it had mature themes and a good plot line. I loved the YJ in the 1st season but too much unnecessary plots were crammed in the 2nd season.

He was a villain when he first debuted?

HATED Brave and the bold. Could sit through it, it was just awful and I even liked Adam West batman so campy i can deal with lol

BTAS was just great period lol The new adventures was like season 4 i believe of TAS just a different animation style. New adventures was in the same style of Batman Beyond, JL, JLU

Batman Beyond is also really good and holds up(a few continuity issues with characters like inque, she makes an appearance after her "death" but not addressed how)

The Batman was good for the most part, still laugh how they squared bruce's chin in the final one or two seasons XD

=_= Beware the batman I'll give a shot but the art style is terrible, I'm not sure what character designer thought that was a successful look to stick with.

A messed-up kid who was willing to harm people, establishments that got in the way of his views, needed help yes, but what I'm saying, is the show is going to play him as the main villain - "bad guy" - cartoons these days - aimed for demographic - does not portray their characters with complexity.

Batman the Brave and the Bold is one of my all time favorite Animated shows and I wish it was still on. How Dare you dis it! On topic though, Beware the Batman I don't think will be good or bad. I'll watch it but I'm expecting nothing but average which is what I think I will get.

Heard Amon from Avatar was doing good.

The most you can do is sigh, and pretend its still in the animation style you prefer, and hear the voices you prefer. Take the stories they tell at face value, and move on.
Enjoy the content you get, or you get nothing. In particular, I'm not enjoying the newest runs of the Batman comics (tried a few different comic titles, haven't found the one I want to read yet)
All the earlier batman stuff with the crappy little purple gloves; I dislike alot.

I like New Adventures of Batman WAY more than the original animated series seasons. WAY more. I also liked Brave and the Bold but lost track.
