Batman and his never-ending gallery of allies and rogues have had many television incarnations over the years: live action, animated, made-for-TV movies. In July, the fine folks at Cartoon Network bring you the newest small-screen version of the Caped Crusader: Beware the Batman, a computer-animated and pretty original take on the man in the cowl. The series features the titular hero and his crime fighting cohorts, the mysterious Katana and Alfred Pennyworth (now an ex-secret agent), as they face Gotham’s biggest, baddest and meanest super-villains, with a roster including some of the more obscure Bat-Baddies, such as Anarky, Tobias Whale, Mister Toad, and Humpty Dumpty.
The CGI lends a visual style rarely seen on American television and will definitely set Beware the Batman apart from some of its super powered brethren. Check out the first trailer and get ready to see the Bat in a whole new light come July on Cartoon Network. Because, hey, any show that prominently features Professor Pyg is worth at least a watch or two.
