It was meant to sound like a serious complaint. Not sure what emoticon might've helped convey that better, sorry. I'm used to how these things roll...especially on the animated front.

The villains will be broader and more fanciful than the relatively grounded heroes. They're all comics characters that haven't been seen in animation before, including Anarky, Magpie, an obscure Golden Age villain named Cipher, and Grant Morrison's Pyg and Toad. Some of the characters are reworked/reinvented for the show, particularly a less gruesome version of Pyg and Toad. Toad is played by Udo Kier. Anarky will be the "Moriarty" to Batman's Holmes, a mastermind and manipulator (so he's probably rather altered from the comics' version of the character).
I really like this idea. Because as awesome as Joker, Two-Face, and the rest are, we've seen Batman face off against them so many times by now that it's started to feel a bit tired and routine.

It'll be nice to have some villains where you can't predict every move they make for once.

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

I'm all for them expanding the rogues gallery if they think they can revitalize a weak villain like TAS did with Mr. Freeze in "Heart of Ice", but to actively avoid using the main rogues gallery seems like a mistake. They're popular because they are so very effective as villains.

Heh, "Anarky", it's funny how characters you didn't grow up with sound goofy when you view them as an adult. Hopefully he's cooler than he sounds though I'd have probably found such a character bitchin' in the 80s.

He debuted in 1989, so you must have just missed him.

I think the writers see potential with these villains as the next Freeze. Anarky and Pyg especially imo were created with the potential to be the next Joker/Two-Face/Ra's, but with their potential never readily utilized.

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

How about giving us a Killer Croc that goes back to his roots as an upstart gangster instead of the monster he has been turned into over the last couple decades? He was the proto-Bane when he was introduced. A cunning and patient mind in the body of a monster, constantly treated by others like he was only good for violence. Then somewhere along the way everyone forgot that part of him and just wanted to make him a monster.

Because he works better as a monster.

But there are so many other similar monsters in comics. Being a gangster made him unique.

After just seeing a commercial for the next Batman movie, an emphasis on detective work sounds especially good.

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

I'm looking forward to this still, and seeing the newer villains, especially Pyg and Toad. I don't think it was reported in the link that Christopher posted, but something else that came out from last weekend is that the Joker reportedly will not be used in this series.

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

I imagine it is more of a "no plans to use the character." rather than a "we will not use the character."

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

I got the sense that he won't appear at all. They also stated that Penguin and Riddler won't be in the show either. They want to give this series a completely different feel and look, which is why I assume we're getting newer villains and characters that we've never really seen before in an animated Batman series.
