Beware the Batman. They canceled all of their best traditionally drawn shows for crap like this. I'll never understand that. The other one's okay. Looks a lot like the current films.

I wouldn't mind seeing a Nolan based Batman cartoon. XD
RidiculousFanBoyDemands - 8/13/2012, 4:44 PM
Catwoman is sexy there. Then you remember she is a prostitute and countless citizens of Gotham have had their way with her.
Ranger14 - 8/13/2012, 4:55 PM
Not digging the animation style of this one. :-(
Tomontherun99 - 8/13/2012, 4:56 PM
@CsVictory Because kids hate superheroes and have no right to watch shows about them right?
Greenlantern1417 - 8/13/2012, 4:58 PM
This looks awful.
IamBatman - 8/13/2012, 5:28 PM
too much batman animated show
need superman
ninjaturtle11 - 8/13/2012, 5:31 PM
beware batman WILL be HORRIBLE. batman without the joker is just bad
IgnurRant - 8/13/2012, 5:32 PM
Should of askedGregWeisman to set this and agreen Lantern in his Young Justice universe. CGI animstion is crap, unless its a heart felt, emotional and funny Pixar movie.
beane2099 - 8/13/2012, 5:32 PM
Okay, first off, I don't know if this is just my computer, but that Grimm ad is ridiculously intrusive. Second, am I the only person that thinks that Batman figure bears a striking resemblance to Clooney's Batman outfit in Batman and Robin?

It looks like a modified version of the Batman Begins suit which is pretty awesome.
superotherside - 8/13/2012, 5:49 PM
Not sure if Beware The Batman will be kiddish. I'd say it'll be more like GLTAS. Which is one of the best animated shows currently running.
J619SD - 8/13/2012, 5:52 PM
Both look HORRIBLE.
Ceejay - 8/13/2012, 5:56 PM
That Green Lantern show is pure kiddie TV, they even look like toys!
GoILL - 8/13/2012, 5:59 PM
That Injustice figure looks pretty shitty.

@MrReese that picture is sweet.
THEDARKKNIGHT1939 - 8/13/2012, 6:02 PM
Don't bash the GL show Ceejay, that show is great.
Mechagino - 8/13/2012, 6:09 PM
Yes Ceejay, because kiddie shows have people dying a lot.
BostonBatmanReturns - 8/13/2012, 6:10 PM
Dat ass
darque13 - 8/13/2012, 6:11 PM
I dont mind the GL show....but this Beware the Batman just looks awful. almost as bad as the Brave and the Bold. And I am a Batman fan. Bring on the Nightwing show already tho.
jimdotbeep - 8/13/2012, 6:28 PM
If there is any justice in this world crappy CGI animation shows like this and the New turtles Show will tank and send Hollywood a simple message. Just because it's a children's TV show doesn't mean you don't have to put effort into it.
SpiderHyphenMan - 8/13/2012, 7:01 PM
The Batman figure will need customizing. :D
Bark4Soul - 8/13/2012, 7:33 PM
All cartoons now have caved to little kids, therefore they just put out shitty shit
GuardianAngel - 8/13/2012, 8:22 PM
Don't they have him doing that exact same pose in TDKR promo art? Also I'm not into that CGI based animation like they did for the GL show. I just hope the writing is good.
Ranger14 - 8/13/2012, 8:34 PM
I really like the GL series, but I just don't think this particular style based on the image posted above and what I have seen works for Batman.
KaneVonDoom - 8/13/2012, 8:49 PM
Not a fan at all of the Batman Armor for Injustice. Looks pretty tacky in my opinion. Very Schumacher-esque. I dig Flash though.
Gromblidor - 8/13/2012, 8:54 PM
Woah, the Green Lantern Animated Series is Epic. One of the greatest animated series's ever, if Beware the Batman is anything like that, I will be happy.
thewolfx - 8/13/2012, 10:00 PM
batman looks like a huge d-bag in the show and the toy
sbdc1939 - 8/13/2012, 10:59 PM
wow he is wearing all black in the show for once. the toy looks weak but i like the design for batman in injustice, the only i havent liked so far is grundy b/c he pulls tombstones out of his stomach
AmazingFantasy - 8/14/2012, 12:33 AM
[frick] that
scrappybuttons - 8/14/2012, 1:03 AM
I really like DC animation but after while it kind of feels like enough is enough. Just as an example, in the last 6 years batman has either been the lead, or has been prominently featured in like, 4 or 5 different shows. And honestly, I still miss batman brave and the bold. I thought is was actually funny. Kind of a nice breath of air when the nolan-verse chokes you out a little, and it did not ignore some of the character's crazier roots. And people waiting for a nolan toon need to let go of his nuts already.
mikesinuman - 8/14/2012, 1:10 AM
oh my god, they will turn all their animtion to CGI. make the design great its animation.
Mothchild - 8/14/2012, 5:42 AM
I am surprised at the people making judgements about BTB's animation based on a still image.

The principles of animation are the same whether it's in 2D, 3D, stop motion or any other style of animation.

I love BTAS and have watched the episodes many times over but it's not because of the animation (which isn't that good btw). It's because the stories are so captivating.

webheaded - 8/14/2012, 6:01 AM
I'll give it one season before it failingly goes off the air.
Tainted87 - 8/14/2012, 6:24 AM
Action figure looks like Owlman, heh.

Beware the Batman is going to be horrible; but perhaps that's for the best. That way perhaps the studio will be less-inclined to resume Batman when it sucks.
SuperSomething616 - 8/14/2012, 8:47 AM
WTF and WTF...
dezdigi - 8/14/2012, 10:05 AM
We'll see.
