    I am dying to know whose voicing Batman, I wonder if it will be someone new.

    Now that is a great promo poster and it should've been the first image we saw of this show.

    I don't care who you are, that looks badass.

    Along with Green Lantern calming my fears for CGi animation (for the most part, at least), I can safely say I'm on board with BtB. Bring it on, CN!

    I was wondering if we'd get any cast confirmation today. Guess not. The promo image is still cool though!

    That's a very cool poster for the show. The designs are starting to grow on me a bit and I am looking forward to seeing more. I think this could be another great unique take on the Batman mythos so I'm anxious to see more.

    I gotta agree with everyone -- That image looks awesome! Batman's head doesn't look as insect-like as it did in the first picture we saw promoting the series. Still not the approach I would have liked to have seen done with the character, but I'm certainly looking forward to seeing what they do. Hopefully it will retain some dark elements and not be too kiddified or campy for my taste like Brave and the Bold was.

    Finally, a little bit of new information and it looks great!! Makes me excited to see more. Interesting to learn that Murakami is producing the show.

    Nice poster.

    If Murakami's involved, then I'm in. :D

    People confusing character designs/art style with animation always annoys me but I realize people will always do it.

    Wait did I just see Anarky on the list of villains Batman will be fighting in this series? YES I have been wanting to see Anarky animated for the longest time.

    And yeah with that second poster Batman's design looks better then it did before.

    Anarky is cool, but personally I'd love to finally see Azrael. Hopefully he'll show up, too.

    I'd especially like the Michael Lane version, since a crazed religious vigilante would be fun to see.

    As for villains we've yet to see in previous animations, a few I can think of are:

    Hush
    Nyssa Raatko
    Flamingo
    Absence
    Prometheus
    The Insect Girls

    Actually I wonder if eventually they'll move past that "rule" (if you can call it that) and maybe use some characters who have appeared in past cartoons, but aren't that memorable. Maybe Maxie Zeus, Roxy Rocket and the like.

    I love that poster as it used the green and black wonderfully with Batman's image. I also like this picture of Batman as well.

    Thats an awesome poster

    Why when u click on the link though does it take you to news about Brave & the Bold?

    On Beware the Batman I wish Magpie had been saved for a team up with Superman but then again she can always pop up again later.

    Mod Note: Link fixed.

    Batman looks awesome...

    Personally, I'm willing to give this show the benefit of the doubt and I applaud WB for being a little bolder with the Batman licence in animation. Let's face it... Batman has been done to death in animation the past 20 years and when you hit the heights of Batman: The Animated Series, its hard to keep going regardless.


    The only thing that bugs me is I wish they wouldn't toss out an old idea and bring a new one in every 3 years. I loved Batman: The Brave and the Bold... and although it got 65 episodes, I still felt its life was too short. Let these things breathe WB. You could have morphed B:TBTB into an updated show (eg. JLU)

    But hey...

    -Cool title
    -Batman looks much better now
    -More obscure villians [​IMG]
    -Glen Murakami
    -Kurtwood Smith as Gordon


    Things are looking good so far.

    I agree batb didn't last long enough another series would've rocked I wish we'd have gotten a JLA episode I hope James Tucker gets to do his dtv n does a JLA reunion. But at least it got more eps than Legion of Superheroes which deserved better.

    On BtB I agree with your good points but I think after this one they shoud give Batman a break or at least do a Superman Batman team up show
