Cartoon Network releases a teaser image for new animated Batman series, ‘Beware the Batman’
The press release for CN’s brand new upcoming CGI animated Batman series:
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!
Hmm….Not so sure about this. I’m curious because Alfred is an ex spy, but Batman looks like a skinny catwalk model. This is Batman, damnit, not the cover of VOGUE. >:(
I just…Batman looks like the only exercise he does is jogging in place in line at his favorite non-corporate metrosexual coffee shop in that photo. he doesn’t quite look “I’ll kick you ass”. He looks “like omigawd, does this spandex make my tiny legs and angular, girly jaw look big? Make sure my latte was HALF-CAFF I NEED TO CUT DOWN…!!”.
….I miss the 90’s cartoon show D: it wasn’t even really for kids, but we all watched it. So gritty and lovely.
