Batman comics have their ups and downs, and there have been some pretty terrible Batman movies, but you can always count on Batman cartoons to deliver. Batman: The Animated Series and the many Bat-toons that have followed have all ranged from good to downright amazing. Well, there’s a new animated Batman series on the way, and guess what? It looks pretty good!
For the first time Batman is going the computer-animated route with Beware the Batman, a series that promises to bring back a more serious tone (after the intentional goofiness of Batman: The Brave and The Bold). Interestingly the series will also focus entirely on minor Batman villains — you won’t see the Joker, Two-Face or Riddler in Beware The Batman’s debut trailer. Instead Batman fights Anarky, a surprisingly sexed-up Magpie and Grant Morrison’s Professor Pyg (whoa, wait, how are they going to make that guy kid’s TV friendly?)
Hit the jump for a first look at Beware the Batman…
Other villains that’ll be featured on the show? Tobias Whale, Humpty Dumpty, King Kraken and Ten-Eyed Man. Yeah, they’re digging deep for this one!
