Cartoon Network’s Beware the Batman Teaser
Cartoon Network has done its audience a huge kindness by gifting them with a teaser for its new take on everyone’s favorite superhero, Batman, in Beware the Batman. I wish I could say the teaser is the be all, end all of teasers, but I didn’t find it that impressive in my eyes, though I’m sure it does the job for younger viewers. At the very least, it introduces us to the animation style of the series as well as to Batman himself. I think a longer look would’ve been better, but then this wouldn’t be a teaser!
In the teaser, found below as usual, we simply see Batman in his batmobile cruising away, presumably to go stop crime. We get to hear the Bat’s voice; unfortunately I couldn’t find any info on who is providing the voice. And how about those fancy computer-generated animations? The video does a decent job selling the look of the series. What the video leaves out are his partners in vigilantism, the sword-wielding Katana and ex-secret agent Alfred Pennyworth. Yeah, that’s right. Alfred is a gun-toting badass in this new series. And if that weren’t a big enough departure, the series will be sporting an all-new rogues galley for the Dark Knight to face off against, with the likelihood of the Joker or Two-Face showing up very slim.
Beware the Batman, which is replacing Batman: The Brave and the Bold, is set to premiere in 2013 in Cartoon Network’s new DC Nation programming block. I’m jazzed about the idea of new villains, though I’m not sure I’m that keen on the voice of Batman. Maybe I’m biased. I grew up with Batman: The Animated Series, so in my mind Kevin Conroy will always be the voice of Batman. He’s just so perfect. Anytime there’s a new series and he’s not the voice of Batman, I die a little bit inside.
