Batman: The Brave and the Bold

At Cartoon Network’s Upfront 2008 presentation this morning, they announced the the new series Batman: The Brave and the Bold, which will premiere on the newly re-focused fantasy/adventure Friday night block this fall. Cartoon Network provided the following description of the series:

Batman isn’t going at it alone this time! From Warner Bros. Animation comes the latest interpretation of the Batman franchise. Our caped crusader is teamed up with heroes from across the DC Universe, delivering nonstop action and adventures with a touch of comic relief. Blue Beetle, Green Arrow, Aquaman and countless others will get a chance to uphold justice alongside Batman. Though still based in Gotham, Batman will frequently find himself outside city limits, facing situations that are both unfamiliar and exhilarating. With formidable foes around every corner, Batman will still rely on his stealth, resourcefulness and limitless supply of cool gadgets to bring justice home.

Cartoon Network is aiming for a Fall 2008 launch date for the series.

James Tucker and Linda M. Steiner will produce, with Sam Register acting as executive producer. Michael Jelenic will handle story editor duties.

Update 4/10/2008: Diedrich Bader announced as voice of Batman and the series will now debut in March 2009
