The first trailer for the computer-generated Beware the Batman animated series from Cartoon Network, coming 2013, is reminiscent of the original Batman: Animated Series.
Beware the Batman incorporates Batmans 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 Citys 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 WBAs Sam Register executive producing, and Batman Beyonds Glen Murakami and Scooby-Doo! Mystery Incorporateds Mitch Watson producing. Anthony Ruivivar will star as Bruce Wayne/Batman in Beware The Batman, with Sumalee Montano as Katana, J.B. Blanc as Alfred Pennyworth, and Kurtwood Smith featured as Lt. James Gordon.
Beware the Batman premieres Saturday, July 13 on Cartoon Network’s DC Nation programming block.
