Beware The Batman CG Cartoon heads to Cartoon Network's DC Nation 2013

We just found out what Batman was doing back in Year One, now Cartoon Network has offered a glimpse at what the Dark Knight will be doing in year 2013! We’ve gone from The Animated Series to Justice League Unlimited to The Batman to the Brave and the Bold, with many stops in between on TV and DVD, so it’s fair to say Batman has had a lot of variety. From what we can see from just this one teaser image, the Caped Crusader is getting yet another remake by the time he appears on Cartoon Network’s 2013 lineup.

Beware the Batman 2013

Beware the Batman 2013 - yeah, that's the Professor Pyg Grant Morrison made famous!

The upcoming toon, a fully CG project like this year’s Green Lantern: The Animated Series, promises a darker Dark Knight, according to producers of the admittedly lighter Batman: The Brave and the Bold. Right off the bat (pun intended!) fans can see from the first leaked image that Batman has an entirely new look. Oh, and that guy to the right with the guns? That’s Alfred! How’s that for a different take. And no, that’s not Batgirl or Robin to the left, it’s actually Katana, a female ninja sidekick character also played in Batman: The Brave and the Bold.

The goal of WB Animation and Cartoon Network is to create a block of DC Comics super heroes. This DC Nation block will soon be filled by the two half hour action shows Young Justice and Green Lantern, eventually growing with additional action toons like Beware the Batman. The block will also be filled with shorts and interstitials, featuring live action news segments, behind-the-scenes looks at DC Nation and DC Comics comic books, and even some claymation toons of Batman and other characters by Wallace and Gromit’s Aardman Animation. DC also promises a toon called Super Best Friends Forever, starring Wonder Girl, Batgirl, and Supergirl, to fill in the mix.
