First announced by Warner Bros. during the MIP Junior Market Convention last October, Cartoon Network has officially released the first teaser poster and press release for their upcoming new Batman animated series entitled "Beware The Batman". To be rendered in CGI (much like Green Lantern: The Animated Series), the new show will debut sometime in 2013, and will feature Batman fighting crime alongside "ex-secret agent" Alfred and Katana.
Here's the official press release:
A cool, new take on the classic Dark Knight franchise, Beware the Batman incorporates Batman’s core characters with a rogues gallery of new villains not previously seen in animated form.
Along with backup from ex-secret agent Alfred and lethal swordstress Katana, the Dark Knight faces the twisted machinations of Gotham City’s criminal underworld led by the likes of Anarky, Professor Pyg, Mister Toad and Magpie.
Produced by Warner Bros. Animation, this action-packed detective thriller deftly redefines what we have come to know as a “Batman show.” Featuring cutting-edge CGI visuals to match the intricate twists and turns of the narrative, Batman steps out of the shadows and into the spotlight for an entirely new generation of fans.
With WBA’s Sam Register executive producing, and Batman Beyond’s Glen Murakami and Scooby-Doo! Mystery Incorporated’s Mitch Watson producing, Beware the Batman, based on characters from DC Comics, is coming soon to Cartoon Network!
Expect more news to arrive before the show premieres next year. In the meantime, we have The Dark Knight Rises to tide us over this July 20th. For more info on the story, visit the source post at Bleeding Cool and Slash Film!
