    The World's Finest reports that Sam Register, Warner Bros. Animation's Executive Vice President for Creative Affairs, announced at a conference that the series, Beware The Batman, will air in 2013.

    The CGI series, according to Register, "will spotlight a classic-looking Batman teaming up with a gun-toting Alfred Pennyworth and a female ninja sidekick."

    Beware's storylines will explore Batman's more obscure villains, such as Professor Pyg (recently made popular in Grant Morrison's run on Batman and Robin.) The show will also feature some of Batman's more well-known rogues.[/p]

    This isn't really an exciting piece of news but if your an over the top Batman fan like I am it's sort of a big deal. The whole Alfred with a Gun thing really puts me off though.

    I'm not to sure if this is the right section to be posting this but whatever it'll be moved if necessary.

    I like the look in the picture and love how it covers the more obscure and recent villains but "gun-toting Alfred Pennyworth and a female ninja sidekick" sounds dumb to me. Not like I'm closed minded to change but she has a sword and he has a gun...Batman is against weapons that kill.

    Please, we already made the mistake of The Batman, let's not make it again.

    Aside from the idiocy of Bruce Wayne's butler teaming up with Batman (nothing suspicious here folks!), the fact that he'll be using guns in aiding Batman is an enormous hypocrisy, even if Alfred has been known to use a shotgun.

    Batman also looks, frankly, awful in that picture. What's with the W-I-D-E E-Y-E-S.

    Maybe Bruce Wayne is now Asian? After all he's got a ninja sidekick now.

    Bah, what is with all these crappy new DC shows (except Young Justice)? Bring back the DCAU.

    The DCAU officially ended with justice League Unlimited's last episode. No matter how it pains us, it is never coming back.

    They already did a really good Batman animated series reboot, and that got canned after 2 seasons. THis looks like shit.

    i was excited when i read the title, now i'm dissapointed.
    can't say i like the new art style, batman's sidekick should always be either batgirl or robin, Batman and his allies should not use guns.

    i'm all for having a badass Alfred, but can't say i like the gun bit, and if they wanted a Ninja Female Sidekick, just use Bat Girl and add Ninjitsu training to her abilities.
    well, i suppose i'll have to wait and see to judge for real.


    i liked Brave and the Bold why was that canceled again?

    I was kinda hoping batman beyond would be brought back.

    On a side note, Static Shock as well.

    by looking at the faces, i can say its not gonna be good. cant judge completely yet but i dont think its gonna be fun.

    brave and bold is great but not as good as the old one. that was as awesome as the first movie.
