Kurtwood Smith Gives An Update On BEWARE THE BATMAN
Kurtwood Smith is best known for making Eric Formans life miserable on That 70's Show, but now he is helping out Batman as Lieutenant Gordon in the new animated TV series Beware The Batman. Click here to see what he had to say about the series.
While doing press for the blu-ray release of The Dead Poets Society actor Kurtwood Smith sat down with MovieWeb to talk about voicing Lieutenant James Gordon in the new animated TV series Beware The Batman. Smith said they have only recorded two episodes and reconfirmed that it is an early Batman story. He also said he doesn't expect for the series to be out for at least another year.
"We just started. We've only recorded two, before Christmas. I like the general thrust of the show. It's early in the Batman story. Commissioner Gordon isn't even Commissioner yet, he's just Lieutenant Gordon. He doesn't trust Batman, even though they kind of end up helping each other out on an early case. Batman, in a lot of ways, is learning his way, and the relationship between he and Alfred is developing. It's fun and it's kind of straight in that regard, as opposed to being campy. I think it's going to be good, but it won't be out for at least a year or so."
The series is being described as a CGI animated series that will spotlight a classic-looking Batman teaming up with a gun-toting Alfred Pennyworth and a female ninja sidekick named Katana. There has been no scheduled release date for it at this time, but like Smith said be on the look out for it in the next year or so. Keep check CBM for updates on the show.
