It’s not coming out until next year, but we’ve got our first look at Cartoon Network’s new CGI Batman cartoon Beware The Batman. This is supposed to be a new spin on the Dark Knight, featuring a more action oriented Alfred and a new companion named Katana who wields a sword. Katana is from the DC Universe, working with The Outsiders and Birds of Prey. I always thought naming the sword wielding companion Katana is a bit on the nose, but we’ll see how that turns out in animated form. The toon is still a year off, but these pics and the synopsis are the only solid info we have. The brief teaser video gives us a taste at the animation style and a listen to Batman’s voice. The only confirmed voice actor is Kurtwood Smith (Red Foreman form That 70s Show as well as Robocop) as Gordon. Anyway, here’s the synopsis followed by the video and teaser poster.
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!
