Giancarlo Volpe from GL: TAS is working on something for WB. He hasn't said what it is quite yet.
This ended up being JLA Adventures: Trapped in Time which was pretty enjoyable, actually. More kid-focused.

Did anyone pick up the Beware the Batman DVD that came out on Tuesday? I just watched the two unaired episodes, Attraction and Fall. Attraction featured the return of Magpie and a disposeable episode. But Fall was really good.

Yeah those two episodes were part of the first half of season 1. They likely won't be shown on tv


Also J.B. Blanc just tweeted this on January the 28th:

Sadly recording what may be the last ever Beware The Batman session… it’s a sorry day…


NO new episodes of Beware the Batman are scheduled for February:


http://www.worldsfinestonline.com/20...2014-schedule/


Cartoon Network has provided The World’s Finest with programming details for the month of February 2014, and once again, new episodes of Beware The Batman are absent from the schedule.

When asked for a statement, a representative for Cartoon Network would only say that there are future plans for Beware The Batman.

If they're still recording episode audio on January 2014, given the huge production lag on animated series.... doesn't that mean there's a whole second season still out there?!

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

So has the whole first season come to DVD?
All I see on Amazon is S1pt1.
I'll wait for a whole first season set.

The DVD is 13 episodes. Only 11 episodes have aired, so you're getting 2 episodes never before seen.

You'll be waiting a very long time.

Hint: It's never coming out since the show is pretty much dead.

I think the second half of the season probably will be released on DVD, unless the first half-season DVD set sells poorly. The thing to keep in mind is that TV shows generally don't make any profit in their original broadcast run. It used to be that the profit came in later syndication; these days it comes from DVD sales and streaming. So the sales of the first DVD set are a more important factor in whether the second set gets released than whether it gets broadcast on Cartoon Network.

After all, CN didn't pull the show because its ratings were bad; they pulled it because they have an insanely narrow definition of what kind of show they want to have on the air and what audience they want to attract. They've killed popular shows before because they didn't target the very specific audience they and their advertisers are focused on -- for instance, killing shows that were popular with female viewers because they want to cater exclusively to boys. They've probably abandoned BTB because it appeals to an older demographic than they want. But that doesn't mean it won't sell well on DVD, because nobody's preventing those older fans from buying the DVDs.

Of course, that doesn't mean there will ever be a full-season set. It may not do well enough to warrant that. But I think there will be a release of the remainder of the season in some form, since after all they spent a lot of money making the episodes and they wouldn't want to let it go to waste.

Really? A Batman show that didn't find an audience and got bad enough ratings to be cancelled at one season? The end is nigh.

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

I've recently watched the first three episodes. While I liked the first two, and most of the third, I really hated their version of Anarchy. Where there should have been a teen genius with philosophical ideas, there was a stupid TDK-Joker knock-off.

Sounds like they're going to wrap up season 1.

The episodes will probably be released on dvd and advertised as "never before seen!"

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

I bought the DVD and was impressed. I really liked the show. It's second to Batman the Animated Series IMO. And the focus on mostly unknown villains is cool, but I can see how that might hurt the show's popularity.

No, I think Mr. Light has a point. The show began production in 2012 for a July 2013 debut. Voice recording is done very early in the process, so the recording for season 1 was probably done well before the season premiered. So any voice recording done in January '14 would either be some very late redubbing on first-season episodes or recording for a second season.

As I've pointed out before, many of B:TAS's villains were unknown to the TV audience at the time -- Man-Bat, Poison Ivy, Two-Face, Ra's al Ghul, Rupert Thorne, Hugo Strange, Killer Croc, Tony Zucco, Professor Milo, Count Vertigo, Maxie Zeus, and the Terrible Trio all made their screen debuts there. Not to mention villains original to the show, like Harley, Red Claw, HARDAC, Baby Doll, Lock-Up, etc.

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

Season 1 had an order for 26 episodes, which was broken into two lots of 13 episodes. They're finishing up recording and production on episodes 14-26. They should be released in some form, even if they don't air, as Season 1 Part 2.
