    Beware the Batman

    We finally see some actual footage. Its not bad - quite "Green Lantern-esque". I'll give it a shot.

    THAT LOOKS ABSOLUTELY





    TERRIBLE

    The design for Batman looks awful and making this trailer basically a AMV with bad clips set to terrible music (like most yuotube AMVs) it doesn't make me care one bit about seeing this new toon any time soon

    This is a fail
    Take a look at my attempts at coloring

    and if you get the chance

    I think they were going for something based off his original comic book appearances, from the way the head and mask look.

    I try never to pre-judge a WB DC toon; I thought Brave & Bold was going to be a train wreck, but it actually had a lot of Silver Age goodness in it for us older comic fans. I thought the first Titans series was going to be abysmal, but strong writing overcame the superdeformed faces and some of the sillier elements. Then again, Titans Go! is every bit as horrid as I feared it might be. Point is, I'll see what the show is like before passing any judgement. Having a different array of villains is probably wise, as we've seen the big guns in multiple forms through the past Bat shows; they do need something a little different here or there's no real reason for making another Bat series. If some of the same folks here were part of the GL series, it may be good.

    not saying it will be terrible, I am saying that the designs and that trailer / sizzle reel looks terrible. Why it fails so far is that it is not getting me interested in the show at all and instead just making me more and more annoyed that Green Lantern and Young Justice were cancelled so we could get this horrendous looking thing

    Oh and as for Brave & Bold... I utterly hated it, couldn't stand the animation, the voice acting or the stories. Only good thing i can say about it is that it introduced me to the Jaime Reyes version of Blue Beetle which was nice, apart from that it sucked.

    I liked the GL Animated series and was sad to see it killed, so I will give this a watch. With WB shows on the CN I have learned to not get too attached

    Meh, they didn't kill GL and YJ to make room for BtB, they killed it due to low merchandising dollars. One thing DC hasn't done as well as marvel is PIMP THEIR MERCH.

    Eh, canning anything for even a bad Batman show seems pretty standard for WB. Not sure if this will be bad, but I'll wait before I bother checking out another DC show.

    What A Shock, Cartoon Network Puts Beware The Batman On Hiatus Until January

    A couple days ago CN pulled Beware the Batman from its immediate schedule this weekend and said that it'll come back in January. Does this surprise anyone who watched Young Justice? I can't stand this Chinese water torture this network does with its serious drama superhero series, with a slow drip of new episodes here and there. Seriously, if you've decided you can't make any toy sales off the series just do us all a favor and cancel it now instead of dragging this out forever. Why bother getting invested in any of these serious superhero cartoons if they're going to do this? We're lucky to get 13 episodes a year of them. Meanwhile they keep cranking out episodes of Regular Show, Gumball, Annoying Orange, etc. every single week. As soon as one season of them ends the next season starts the following week. I guess the secret to success at CN is to treat kids like idiots. Thoughts?
