"Beware the Batman" in 2013! New Animated Series

The next Batman animated series is coming in 2013 and will be called "Beware the Batman", a title I kind of like. Here are the details so far.

Not surprising that they do. He's a popular character and the demand is there. I'm interested in seeing Katana (who of course has been a member of Batman's Outsiders team). This is also the first CGI Batman animated series so that is going to be another interesting aspect of the series, not to mention who they will cast to voice the character.

I'm just surprised they keep canceling one series, only to give rise to another (usually set between movies). B:TAS from the 90s had a long run that wasn't restarted every time there was a new movie.

Then again, different times, etc.

What's been cancelled (aside from The Batman?)?

Re: "Beware the Batman" in 2013! New Animated Series

^ Not as far as I know. It just started it's final season recently with it's regular Cartoon Network 65 episode allotment (I think, someone can correct me). Also a "gun totting" Alfred isn't too far fetched since he's been shown in the comics as using a rifle plenty of times. One of the most prominent times was during Knightfall (I can't recall any others). We know he has military service.

Re: "Beware the Batman" in 2013! New Animated Series

I'm thrilled that Katana is going to be a series regular, because it means more royalties for my friend Mike Barr, who created her.

But I'm not thrilled about it being CGI. That only really looks good when there's a lot of time and money thrown into it, so it tends to work better in features than television. And it would be a shame if Warner Bros. Television Animation moved away from the 2D animation they do so superbly.

If Murakami is running this, does that mean that Ben 10 Ultimate Alien (which has already lost its other showrunner, the late Dwayne McDuffie) will be ending? If so, I hope it gets a satisfactory finale.

Ooh, and did you notice this part?
Register also said that Aardman Animation is creating new claymation Batman shorts for the upcoming DC Nation block
Batman and Gromit, perhaps? This could be awesome...

I'd wish they'd realize there are other characters besides Batman to make a cartoon out of. Think of all the superheroes with plenty of great material to work with.

Afraid so which really sucks because I loved BnB if only for the reason that it made Aquaman cool.

Re: "Beware the Batman" in 2013! New Animated Series

its funny cause the last episode of Batman Brave and the Bold joked that a dark, brooding CGI series would be next. though, it would star Batgirl.

Re: "Beware the Batman" in 2013! New Animated Series

I loved the 90s Dini/Timm animated series and wasn't too fussed on The Batman. The Brave and the Bold is good for what it is and I can let my four year old watch it (and now I'm taking her to Batman Live on Saturday). I'm a bit iffy on the idea of a gun-toting Alfred and I don't know the female sidekick referred to. But I guess I'll give this a chance anyway.

Was wondering if there would be another Batman animated series coming down the pike. And so the legend of the Bat continues on.

I always envisioned Alfred had ammo in his Umbrella/Cane, anyways, so, a gun totin' Alfred isn't so shocking to me

Hmmm, not sure what to make of this yet. I'll definitely be keeping an eye on it.
Sad to hear that BaB is ending though, because I've just started watching it over the last 2 or 3 months. Is this the same Katana who is one of the nuDCU Birds of Prey (well it probably won't be that version of the character, but you know what I mean)?
