True. Such as 6yrs later and two weeks in to Transformers run I'm reading about Michael Bay's insensitive nature by including a 9/11 moment in the film. I had to keep reading to find out people were upset over Megatron flying through the building (even though it didn't knock it down).

At least in my experience, there usually seems to be a lot more people talking about people being upset than there are actual upset people.

That seems pretty true. People do seem to pay more attention to complaints than praise.

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

Hmm, I suppose I could get used to the look, but I still think 2D animation looks better than most TV-quality 3D animation.

I don't like it that Batman's chest emblem is just raised black on black. It's rather boring visually. However, it's interesting that the Batmobile kind of looks like the Bat-symbol from the front.

And just action shots don't tell me much. I want to hear voices and dialogue.

Still, the premiere is less than a month away, which is sooner than I thought. I'm surprised we've seen so little up to now.

Finally, a date. It will be interesting to see Batman without the usual supporting players. I'm trying to keep an open mind about this despite the disappointing treatment CN gave to the last contenders.

I'm not seeing anything in ToddKent's post. A footprint of where something maybe should be but nothing. Am I the only one?

It looks like very generic cgi to me.

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

It says it will premier on Saturday July 13 at 10pm EST at the end of the sizzle trailer.


This looks quite interesting. I love the show logo. The animation doesn't jump out at all I agree. I'm looking forward to seeing Professor Pyg and Toad. Katana looks interesting. I think this has a lot of promise.

I agree. It looks fine, but not outstanding; and there's nothing in the content that especially interests me.

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

^^^^^
Thanks that worked. On two different servers, home & work, I'm still not seeing the embedded piece above. Weird.

I can appreciate them going for a different stylistic approach with this. It does remind me more of a video game, not to unlike early Transformers Beast Wars did in the 90's or the Prime show now. Both of which I enjoyed. I think it does look good.
Of all DC characters I'm behind on Batman so Pyg and Toad I really have minimal exposure to, have they shown up in nu52? I've only seen the pre-52 appearances. Is that car Toad driving in the books? It looks ripped straight from the Disney themepark ride!!

Since I don't have cable I won't likely see full episodes for some time so YouTube clips will hopefully be plentiful.

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

Professor Pyg and Toad were villains created by Grant Morrison during his "Batman and Robin" run when Dick Grayson was Batman and with Damian as Robin. This will be their second animated appearance, their first was a brief appearance in "Batman: The Brave and the Bold" animated series. Toad is a take on Mr. Toad from "Wind in the Willows" yeah.

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

I'm not quite sure what to make of this yet. The animation is definitely different, although it doesn't really bother me. I am curious to see some of the characters, like Katana and the villains, that I'm not familiar with. At the same time I am a little nervous that they seem to be making a point of being different from past adaptations. Sometimes that pays off, like with the Nolan movies, but other times it ends up a disaster, like Batman & Robin.

How was B&R a pointed departure from what came before? It was in much the same vein as Batman Forever, only more so -- and it was pretty much a blatant attempt to replicate the campy flavor of the '66 sitcom.

Anyway, it's pretty standard for each new animated Batman series to be a departure from what's been done before. Batman: The Animated Series was radically unlike any prior animated Batman -- or any prior animated superhero show ever. Its successor The Batman took a different tack by being about a young Batman in the early years of his career -- although if anything it suffered from not being distinctive enough, so that sometimes it just felt like a less impressive version of what had come before. Conversely, Batman: The Brave and the Bold took a radically different tack from its two predecessors and was acclaimed for it, and was certainly unforgettable.

There have been so many Batman adaptations by now that the best chance any show has of being successful is if it does bring something new and fresh to the table. Just doing more of what's been done before would feel redundant. Of course doing this one in 3D animation is an obvious departure, but it wouldn't be enough on its own.
