Cartoon Network confirmed today that 2013 will see a new animated Batman Series, Beware the Batman. The series was first revealed in October. Today’s announcement states:
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.
And here’s a new image.
I’m not a fan of CGI DC Superhero programs right now, but perhaps this can change it.
And really who can resist Katana as a sidekick? (Although why not make it his daughter Cass Cain?)
I don’t know how I feel about this right now… :/ CGI >.<
