I didn’t even know this was happening until one of our readers sent the trailer our way last night, color me stunned. I am a big fan of Batman: The Animated Series; it’s one of the best animated shows we ever had and one of the best uses of the Batman name ever. Needless to say we have not had a strong animated presence on TV for the caped crusader since then in my opinion, the DVD movies are great though.
So here comes Beware The Batman, it is set to air in the United States on Cartoon Network starting in 2013 and will make some changes to the story you’re used to. Batman teams up with swordtress Katana and Alfred Pennyworth who is a gun-toting ex-secret agent this time around to face the criminal underworld led by the twisted Anarky, Professor Pyg, Mister Toad, King Kraken, and Magpie.
Before people throw hands up and yell about the mythology, we have seen it all by now in many forms. These are the lesser known villains of the Batman universe and I welcome them along with an ass kicking Alfred. Let’s wait until we see the show before we trash this one. Watch the teaser trailer below to get a sense of animation and tone. More on the wiki page.
