What was wrong with The Batman? Granted, nothing is touching the TAS but for what it was I thought it was decent.

I thought it was okay too, aside from the Joker they had. Just because it didn't hold a candle to Batman TAS doesn't necessarily mean it sucked as a whole.

Yeah, I'll admit that version of Joker sucked.

I did like the version of Killer Croc The Batman had though, as well as Freeze and Manbat, as far as what I can remember off the top of my head.

What the hell are those things in he background? Is Batman fighting the Ani-Men from Silver Age Marvel Comics now?

One of them looks like Professor Pyg. I've heard that he's one of the more disturbing villains to be introduced recently, so it makes perfect sense to put him in a kids show.

Ugh. A kiddish CGI Batman cartoon with a ninja sidekick girl and a gun-toting Alfred that somehow fights by Batman's side using the very weapon Bruce hates and would never use because it would mean he crossed the line. Just think about it. Would Batman let any of his Bat family members use guns to shoot after criminals right in front on him? And that's ignoring the fact that Alfred wouldn't do it either way even if he had Bruce's permission because he's the closest one to understanding how Bruce was scarred by his parents' death. At least The Batman got that aspect of Bruce and Alfred right. So not only you can expect this show to be as kiddish and dumbed down as The Batman but you can also expect it to be even less accurate.


I'm tired of all the kiddish Batman shows (Brave & the Bold was doing something different so it doesn't count). Why can't they make another dark mature Batman animated series like the 90s cartoon? I would love to see a Batman cartoon for ages 14+ or something airing late night on Adult Swim. A cartoon where you can have Zsasz, where you can have people getting shot and dying, where you can have Bane breaking Batman's back on screen, where you can have Jason being beaten to death with a crowbar by the Joker, etc. Imagine how awesome that would be. I say either do that or stay away from Batman for a while and focus on doing a character that hasn't had an animated series at all or in a while. It would be awesome if we were to get another Superman series or a Flash cartoon. Though they have to be aimed at an older audience. They don't necessarily have to be too dark but at least be one the same level of maturity as the shows in the DCAU.

Batman doesn't have to be "14+" with excess violence, blood and sex in order to have a dark edge and meaningful story.

Look at Mask of the Phantasm. Yes there were deaths going on and there was an incredibly deep and compelling story going on, but a 5 year old could still watch it and be entertained.

IMO, the perfect Batman can be watched and enjoyed by kids AND adults. THAT is why BTAS was a masterpiece. They could pull off the violence in such a psychotic world like Batman's while doing it tastefully.

It doesn't have to have excess violence, blood and sex but I would like it if it dealt with darker stuff in a tone similar to the mainstream comics (which don't have excess violence, blood, and sex despite being aimed at older audiences). Yes, Batman TAS was dark but even that show, as brilliant as it was, had limits to how dark it could get. They weren't able to adapt something like A Death in the Family or Killing Joke, or to do a character like Mr Zsasz. It would be nice to get a cartoon that can do all of that. And it doesn't mean all kids won't be able to watch it. If they've been raised properly and know to separate reality from fiction, it shouldn't be a problem.

Also, I believe MOTP was rated PG-13.

Tbf, Alfred is the only member of the family whom Bruce allows to carry firearms.

Still, this show doesn't fill me with confidence, but kudos on them trying something different.

I'm all for something different, but not something different that doesn't work well, which this series will not based on the impressions so far.

Variety reports that Warner Bros. Animation have decided to review their Beware The Batman animated series (set to air on the Cartoon Network next year) in the wake of the shooting in Auroro, Colorado, last week. Whether they would still be doing this if it hadn't taken place during a screening of The Dark Knight Rises is debatable. However, it definitely seems like an overreaction, especially as many have already criticised their film division for delaying Gangster Squad in order to remove a scene which features a shooting in a movie theatre (in that instance, it's at least understandable). The producers of the series have apparently been asked to take a very close look at how weapons are portrayed with, "An unspecified number of alterations made to some designs and situations on the series to minimize the amount of weapon imagery deemed too realistic." What this essentially means is that the weapons featured in the show are now being altered to look less realistic - square barrels instead of round for example - in order to differentiate the show from real life.


Honestly, I think this is a bad idea.

I prefer traditional animation a hundred percent compared to this.
I am willing to give it a chance. I did that for the Green Lantern Animated Series and was pleasantly surprised. This is evidently done by the same people, so I'm hoping for the best.
Also, Udo Kier is supposed to be in it. Whens the last time he got a shout out?

I suppose I could give this a chance, but with the villains I've seen this show is having (and no Joker at all from what I heard), it'll be another reason for me to not look forward to it aside from not being a fan of this kind of animation.

And hey, I think I remember you from the anime board here or something a long time ago.

Just got around to watching the first episode annnnnd I dis-liked it. Animation was Sub par and I hate the interpretation of Alfred. Its not worth watching a second episode imo.
