New Beware the Batman Clips: Allies

Beware the batman allies

A couple of new non-exclusive clips has been released for this week’s episode of Beware the Batman, titled “Allies,” which is scheduled to air Saturday, September 14 at 10:00 AM as part of Cartoon Network’s DC Nation Programming block.

In Allies, Batman finally managed to collect evidence that can convict and put one of the most powerful gangsters in Gotham, Tobias Whale, away for good. However, Whale wouldn’t be at the top of the food chain if he’s easy to take down; after the gangster’s lawyer has threatened Lieutenant Gordon to free Whale or else, the gangster also had Barbara Gordon abducted and held in the most dangerous part of Gotham: The Cauldron.

The cops might be afraid of The Cauldron, but not the Batman. With Alfred and Katana in tow, the Dark Knight stages a raid on the Cauldron and takes on the notorious group of thugs ruling the place called “the Ghosts.” However, the Ghosts are the least of their problems as Barbara Gordon is being guarded by an even more dangerous foe named Phosphorus Rex.

New Beware the Batman Clips: Family

A couple of new teaser clips for the next episode of Beware the Batman have just been released online. The episode, titled “Family,” is scheduled to air as part of the Cartoon Network’s DC Nation programming block this Saturday, September 7 at 10:00 AM ET/PT.

In “Family,” the League of Assassins finally know where the SoulTaker Sword is but they are unable to get Katana to return it, so they decide upon a different course of action: kidnap Bruce Wayne and hold him for ransom (with the ransom being the SoulTaker Sword). Of course, they have no idea what they’re in for as they don’t know that Wayne is actually Batman. Once Katana shows up to turn over the sword, Alfred causes a diversion that allows Bruce to don the cape and cowl. With Katana by his side, the Batman finds himself in an all-out ninja fight that ends with a startling revelation.

Mitch Watson knows a boatload about Batman and Alfred.

Mitch is a Producer for Beware the Batman, which airs on Cartoon Network, Saturday Mornings at 10 AM ET. Mitch knows a boatload because, when they were researching for the show, they had to pull from everything that has ever been done with the characters in the Batman Universe, to determine what their Batman backstory might be.

We’re now one year away from the conclusion to Christopher Nolan’s Batman saga. From Batman Begins to The Dark Knight and now, next summer, The Dark Knight Rises. Very little has been revealed about the film, though much has been teased and rumored. We knew of Bane. We read about Selinda Kyle and maybe even Catwoman. We’ve heard maybe Ra’s al Ghul will be reborn or flashed back upon, and we’ve seen rumblings of Talia, his daughter. The pieces are still coming together, setting up what could possibly be the biggest trilogy conclusion of all time. Now, finally, we have a teaser trailer to help hype up the film – check out a sneak peek

Light the Signal, Batman The Dark Knight Returns to theaters July 20, 2012

Light the Signal, Batman The Dark Knight Returns to theaters July 20, 2012

Even with a number of animated DVD appearances, Batman, the famed caped crusader of DC Comics’ Gotham City, hasn’t been seen in a feature film since 2008’s The Dark Knight, and Batman Begins before that. That film became the then-second (now third, thanks to Avatar) highest grossing film of all time with $533 million in the US, $1 billion worldwide. Now, Warner Bros. and Legendary Pictures, along with Christopher Nolan, have officially announced “Batman 3“, a followup sequel to the blockbuster franchise, hitting theaters, and IMAX, on July 20th, 2012. Information on the cast and plot, at this point, is nothing more than speculation, though it is assumed the core actors will reprise their roles: Christian Bale as Batman, Morgan Freeman as Lucius Fox, Michael Caine as Alfred, etc. The date comes almost 4 years after The Dark Knight hit theaters, but a mere 2 and a half weeks after Disney and Marvel’s Spider-Man returns. Will you see them both?
