"And until we meet again boys and girls, know that wherever evil lurks in all its myriad forms, I'll be there with the hammers of justice to fight for decency and defend the innocent. Goodnight." - Batman
Remember when James Tucker was working on a pitch for CGI Batman show at the start of this decade but the suits deemed it too dark? Then sometime later, Beware The Batman was greenlit? Today, James Tucker posted another piece that was used for his No Man Land's pitch. Love it.

I think it's some nice concept art, but I'm not crazy on some of the design choices for Joker, Nightwing, and... Cassandra Cain ?
I like the Batsuit, but Batman's just a wee bit too bulky I think. Though I guess, potentially, if he was meant to be portrayed as much older, then I guess it could work.
But yeah, I agree with Tucker. A "No Man's Land" series would cost probably a heck of a lot of money if it was a CGI series. That's one of the theories over why Cartoon Network killed Beware right?
other pitch piece Coran Stone posted. So I take it they were made just to gave a picture to the suits and they were by no means final art designs.
A No Man's Land story would be better for a DTV movie than an ongoing TV series I think.
"This is true. This is real. This . . . Is . . . STRAIGHT EDGE."
It still baffles me how close we were to this. A No Man's Land story would be perfect to bring a fresh breath of air to animated Batman: a seasoned Batman, an established Bat-Family from the start, unique story ideas, a fresh take on familiar Batman rogues, and all the potential world-building bred out of this situation.
This was posted by Bruce Timm a few years ago and sheds some light on the "Pokemon/Batman" show-that-never-was.
(at least 'Alpha-Red' survived to make an appearance in The Brave And The Bold)
He also mentions a pitch for a Batman Beyond sequel series that would have taken place on Mars...

I'll miss you dad xx
I have to assume this is a dead project by now, but there were a few image drops of a Superman series in the same art style as Beware the Batman and Green Lantern TAS back the same year we learned about Beware the Batman.
This project appears to be dead as I can't even find pictures of this project anymore.
