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

Checking the schedule grid, "Beware..." will indeed bump "Ghost in the Shell" from the Toonami line-up. Well, the Major may "disappear" for several months, but I'm confident she will return.

Sincerely,

Bill

I wonder if they'll try any more DC comic based animated series any time soon? With so many live action shows (possibly) starting, it would be a shame not to have at least one animated series to go along with them.

Teen Titans Go?

I guess "Green Lantern" "Young Justice" and "Beware the Batman" just don't fit what Cartoon Network is trying to target now.


I'd hate to be the one pitching a "Superman VS Batman" cartoon when time comes for one.

Cartoon Network would probably want it to be a "The Odd couple" type cartoon.

DC needs to just move all it's cartoon properties to the CW. Fuck Cartoon Network.

That'd be nice if they'd do a weekday afternoon block!

This. Cartoon Network obviously has no interest in the kinds of DC shows people like us would be most interested in. The CW does (or at least did, I haven't checked lately) have a Sunday morning cartoon block where they showed old episodes of Justice League Unlimited, Spectacular Spider-Man, and some other stuff. If they decided to do original stuff as part of the block, a new DC series would fit in perfectly. They could just pair it up with JLU or even just replace it.

They do it on Saturday mornings in a lot of places. I love watching JLU. If not for the regulations on broadcast (they've done some trimming), it'd be spectacular. I'd suggest not only the CW but also the Hub and maybe another broadcast channel.

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

The first new episode aired last night, though it looks like my DVR missed the first 2-3 minutes for some reason (even though I had it set to start 2 minutes early) -- hopefully it'll show up via On Demand, but they're currently 2 weeks behind on that.

Anyway, "Attraction" (written by Len Wein) was pretty disappointing. It's the first return of Magpie, who was an engagingly written character the first time out, but here she was reduced to a stereotypical homicidally-jealous-lover female villain type, delusionally in love with Batman and determined to kill Katana, whom she sees as a rival. It's a real step down for her, and for the show's treatment of gender in general. Plus, maybe this was explained in the parts I missed, but why the hell did the prison let her wear her full supervillain costume? It's a trope I've seen in other comics and cartoons, but it never makes sense, and it was doubly nonsensical here since you'd think they'd want to take away all hints of Margaret Sorrow's homicidal alter ego. Oh, and also, what's with the coed prison accommodations? That didn't make sense either.

I'm also seeing more of the limitations of doing this show as 3D animation instead of 2D. The third act reused the abandoned hospital set from the first Magpie episode, which was justified as Magpie "returning to her nest," but just screamed "we can't afford to build too many locations so we have to reuse them." And the cemetery "set" was rather lacking in detail and didn't look good at all. In revisiting this show, I'm coming to recognize it's not one of the better-animated 3D cartoons on TV. The character designs are mostly pretty good (except Katana's legs are too absurdly skinny -- she looks like Jack Skellington sometimes), but the execution leaves something to be desired.

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

My DVR missed the series recording for some reason. Checked next week and it says episode 13 airs next week and I see Adult Swim On Demand has 8-12 available for viewing. Crazy.

EDIT: Whoops, never mind, think I'm getting my wires crossed with Korra or something. I was thinking Batman had 13 eps total but that's not the case.

EDIT2: Good news is that the episode is On Demand.

Damn. I didn't realize this was actually coming back. I'll have to see if I can find the episode online.

Yeah, they've been airing JLU reruns, among other things.
