Cartoon Network has been airing a promo for their upcoming animated Batman series entitled “Beware the Batman“. The series is set to premiere sometime later this year, and will be the first Batman series to utilize full CGI visuals. Below you’ll find the shows official synopsis followed the promo we mentioned earlier.
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!
I’m trying hard to not to be to critical of the whole series based off this one promo… but it just looks so cheap. Anyways, what are your thoughts on the promo? Let us know in the comment area below.
