Yesterday afternoon Cartoon Network released the first official teaser image for Beware The Batman, a brand new CGI animated TV series, set to debut later this year. The show is made by many of the same hands who were behind Batman Beyond a few years back, making this a promising new series for toon fans. DC’s cartoon film series has been unbelievably awesome as of late, and perhaps this will be a trip down nostalgia road to those days waking up early on Saturday mornings to catch the original Batman cartoon. Read on for the skinny…
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!
