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 andScooby-Doo! Mystery Incorporated’s Mitch Watson producing, Beware the Batman, based on characters from DC Comics, is coming soon to Cartoon Network!

Looks great.

Now let's see if this can actually manage to be a good show.

awesome

Posted by Batwipe

Garbage. You know, just because it's done with computers doesn't mean that it's instantly good. In fact, this "animation" looks ugly.

I'll skip this one.

Posted by KainScion

how many cool, new takes on a character can there be??? looks stupid anyway.

Edited by Lurkero

cgi is rarely pleasing to my eyes, especially in a long form series that has to budget for individual episodes. CG saves money for some aspects of animation, but not all.

I still hope I enjoy this series though.

Posted by RedOwl_1

Hmmmmmp........ the animation looks bad but not as bad as I expected.

Posted by Deranged Midget

Eh... I'll give it a shot.

Posted by Inverno

Oh god, I don't wanna see this series

Posted by Afro_Warrior

Looks a lot better then i was expecting, after seeing the stills. I'll give this a look.

Posted by Jonny_Anonymous

Is this the type of animation kids like these days or do WB/DC execs sit around a big table and say stuff like "hay, do you know whats hip? CGI"

Not a fan of the CGI.

Posted by MrMazz

Ok its a teaser can't really judge it all but that's what im about to do.

I'm just not feeling the inclusion of Katanna and ex spy Alfred really the aesthetic looks intersting.

Posted by MonsieurShogun

@Batwipe: Funny, because everyone has been bashing this show because of the CGI.

Posted by Zomboid

Honestly I think it looks pretty good. I'm looking forward to it.

Posted by GundamHeavyarms

It looks okay, though I wish they would try something other than batman, mix it up a little more.

Posted by Dedpool

Like the GL animated series the stylized look better in motion than in stills. i'll hold judgement but I'm not holding my breath. I also agree that as much as I love Batman, like Spiderman he's had enough cartoons, give Superman another shot. Do a Wonder Woman toon with heavy greek mythology themes.

After Green Lantern CGI , I am not a big fan of those type of series.

And this is the new series that will include Katana as the sidekick ( although it might be a long strecth but I can understand the ''overuse'' of Robin ) . Will be interesting to see how they will handle her and what is the fate of Robin(s) or Nightwing OR Batgirl/Oracle !

I do not envy these guys since they have A LOT to fill the plate when it is about Batman and it's Chronology baggage and they decided to take a new route with a (barely member of the Bat-family ) Katana

Posted by NXH

F*@K THIS !!! Scrap production on this right now and start work on a Batman show with the exact same animation as Batman: UTRH or Young Justice...PLEASE!!!

Posted by kennybaese

I'm one of the only ones who thinks that this looks good, I guess. I dig the CGI look in Green Lantern and this seems like it'll be on par with it, so I'm down.

Posted by KnightRise

as long as there isnt a bat-embargo on young justice, like when teen titans and "the" batman came out and justice league couldnt use a buttload of sweet characters like nightwing

Posted by CodeComiX

I love me any comic series!! Real fans stick watch it all....CGI or NOT!

Posted by the_fallen11

Cool!

Posted by phantom64

Oh great, they're doing more of that cheap, gaudy, and ugly cgi animation from Green Lantern.

I just hope its writing makes up for it, unlike Green Lantern, which has both ugly animation AND the the most cliche and boring as hell stories ever.

Posted by BoyWander

I'm not agains the CGI (even though I disagree with it). I am however against the way they've drawn batman and everyone else. Ugly. I actually like the green lantern show, but I think they're taking CGI too far. It's a nice technology, but to over use it is just annoying. A lot of people have the same idea. Use Young Justice animation. I would actually love to see a spin off with batman from YJ. The team isn't always whole. Robin is said to sometimes go off with Batman for some detective work. Chronicle those stories. I would watch that show. You could create a whole new DCAU.

Not just that but I am against the fact that there's another batman show and they've left Jason out again! Tim drake was part of Batman the animated series. And Dick is the go to robin for most other shows. For once can we have Jason todd? They put Katana in before Jason... why?

Posted by War Killer

I have no issue with the CGI, personally I liked how they used it in Green Lantern and from this little tease here I think I will like it here as well. My main issue with the show isn't how it looks, it's the villains they've chosen to use.

Posted by Cavemold

Bruce's voice sounds so weird

Posted by Trodorne

Batmite knew it would come back. its all his fault that we lost Batman Brave and the Bold.

Posted by Mbecks14

Could be REALLY awesome. If they don't CHANGE everything. I'm cautiously peccismistic about this one.

But i've said it before and i'll say it again. ANOTHER batman show? i love Batman don't get me wrong, but seriously? Let's see another Superman show? Or give Flash or Wonder Woman a shot? sigh.

Posted by N00beditor3

@KnightRise: That's thankfully no longer an issue. Brave and the Bold's final season ran alongside YJ and they used some of the same characters.

@BoyWander: "They put in Katana before Jason. Why?"

They've said they want to avoid reusing characters who have been done to death by previous shows. Even if Jason has only been in the movies he's still A Robin and Robin has been used in a shit ton of DC cartoons, hell he's currently still in Young Justice. If they wanted to give Batman a sidekick while avoiding using an interation of Robin or Batgirl, Katana works.

CGI Batman. Well i dont mind ( i mean im loving the CGI green lantern show), but its going to take more than a 23 second teaser to sell me on this. Saving my judgment for later then.

Posted by sora_thekey

NO! Futuristic space adventures of Hal Jordan in 3D animation? Yes... Batman? No!

Posted by BlackArmor
Posted by Beaudacious

This should be called " Beware the Bat", " Beware the Batman" sounds tacky.

Posted by Video_Martian

This show STILL looks like $#*%. Screw Batman and DC.

Posted by mickoreo_LZ

Batman will forever be my favorite character but I don't think I can bring myself to watch this. CGI is hard on the eyes. Do like the inclusion of some secondary villains but Katana? Ex-spy Alfred? Quite stupid

Posted by RedheadedAtrocitus

Hmmmm, not bad, but it really just seems like Batman meets Tron to me for some reason.

Edited by THEBlaqueBasterd

Wow.. how EPIC....ally lame is this or what.. I mean seriously am I missin sumthin? Are we rilly doin this now.. ? Is DC gettin a cheap two for one rate at a knock off CGI studio or is this just to cash in on the Clone(why the hell are we still goin)Wars fad...

Im actually being serious here ppl, after all the progress we've made this is what we get..? Gettin donkey punched back to Johnny Quest era VR World type animation ??? Come onnn

Posted by Eyz

Yeah...

... No.

Beware the Batman looks a bit cheap.

Well, that's the problem with the look they went here.

CGi, I mean good CGi is expensive. But kids nowadays do prefer it visually. And nevertheless, cheap CGi, while looking bland and generic, is cheaper than traditional animation in the end.

Also, producers don't care what you think, they just wanna make money at any cost.

"...Beware my power, The Batman's might!" lol

Posted by GR2Blackout

I hope Amygdala and Red Hood.. and Zsasz, of course, get in it. It said never before seen in cartoons!
