Thanks to Tumblr blog DC Women Kicking Ass, we have some new low-res promo images for Cartoon Network's upcoming CG animated series Beware The Batman, which is scheduled to begin airing in early 2013. The following images (which appear in a recent issue of the DC Nation magazine) give us our first looks at some of the characters that'll be included in the show, such as Alfred, Katana, and the villainous Professor Pyg and Mr. Toad. Beware The Batman will be a different animated take on the Caped Crusader, as he takes on lesser known villains alongside Alfred and his new sidekick Katana (according to the show's producers, "In Katana, Batman sees someone who has lost her way and needs some guidance to find the right path."). The characters Humpty and Metamorpho will also be seen in the series. The voice cast includes Anthony Ruivivar as Batman, Sumalee Montano as Katana, J.B. Blanc as Alfred, and Kurtwood Smith as Lt. James Gordon.






L-R: Bruce Wayne, Katana

Mrcool210 - 11/5/2012, 8:46 AM

marcvader1 - 11/5/2012, 8:49 AM
This is wierd. What's with all the early 20th century clothes on these characters?
jingorot - 11/5/2012, 8:55 AM
am i the only one who thinks alfred looks like lex luthor, and katana looks like a slickback lois lane?

this is gonna be one weird show for me, if i ever get around to watching it.

The only thing I truly don't like is the length of Batman's ears. Other than that, I'm definitely giving it a shot.
Greengo - 11/5/2012, 8:56 AM
Alfred looks like Cojack.
jingorot - 11/5/2012, 8:56 AM

Unas - 11/5/2012, 8:58 AM
No animated series will COME CLOSE to the 90's animated series. Bruce Timm FTW!

This show is to the Batman mythology what Michael Bay's Ninja Turtles is to the TMNT mythology.

Katana is attractive.
reverendjonnynemo - 11/5/2012, 9:01 AM
So in other words:

This actually looks good. I'm still not sure about the quality of the series and storytelling overall, but design-wise, it looks good.
Homunculus97 - 11/5/2012, 9:03 AM
Oh , looks like they were serious about censoring the show after the "TDRK shootings" Alfred now have a pulse rifle instead of a weapon with actual bullets , but I gotta say that I like Dr . Pygs design , kinda Jack the Ripper mixed with Saw , but I dont have high hopes for this show :/
plasticman - 11/5/2012, 9:03 AM
I still can't believe they cancelled Batman Brave and the Bold for this.

This reminds me of a crumby mix of Green Lantern and The Batman. So I will take the title of this show literally and beware of Beware the Batman.
Spideyguy94 - 11/5/2012, 9:06 AM
This show looks terrible
reverendjonnynemo - 11/5/2012, 9:08 AM
my bad:

WildCard12 - 11/5/2012, 9:08 AM
They look so damn goofy
superotherside - 11/5/2012, 9:11 AM
I think this series might be pretty cool. Just depends. Hope the best though.
fceeviper - 11/5/2012, 9:11 AM
Alfred looks like Bane! WTH?!
IgnurRant - 11/5/2012, 9:20 AM
looks pretty horrible.
jimpinto24 - 11/5/2012, 9:25 AM
Alfred is buff! They should tone down his body mass. Overall, I will be watching Beware The Batman, because I'm a huge Batman fan.
pesmerga44 - 11/5/2012, 9:27 AM
Poor Poor Alfred so much for Bruce surogate father who helped Bruce through his parent's death. So much for the staunch supporter and rock in Bruce's life who no matter what was always there in an ever dark and maddening world. Alfred as we know him is dead to these people kids will no longer see Bruce's greatest confidant they will see some buffed out gun toting ex British spy I feel for them.
Roscoe182 - 11/5/2012, 9:27 AM
well this just killed animated batman .. il stick to my 90's awesome cartoon thanks.
Spidey91 - 11/5/2012, 9:32 AM
Badass Alfred is badass :P
azn197 - 11/5/2012, 9:35 AM
cant wait for this if they say the feel of it and story is like the 90's animated series
jimoakley666 - 11/5/2012, 9:35 AM
Actually looks really interesting.
Wingding - 11/5/2012, 9:35 AM
Are you . . . . . Are you freaking kidding me? HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! That is ridiculous! Just stop, please stop now with this awful looking cartoon. Remember the greatness of BTAS and BB? Yeah, do something like that. Not this crap. Lol.
Wingding - 11/5/2012, 9:39 AM
Btw, Alfred looks like Jason Statham with a bowler hat. Way to ruin a character. And who gives a crap about Katana? Why in the world would SHE be Batman's sidekick? Exactly, she wouldn't. Hope this show never makes it to TV. If it does, I hope it's cancelled after the first episode.
TheAbomination - 11/5/2012, 9:40 AM
I'll wait till I see actual footage before making a verdict.
Greengo - 11/5/2012, 9:44 AM
Oops my bad... Alfred looks like "Kojak" : )

Greengo - 11/5/2012, 9:49 AM

cabbie655 - 11/5/2012, 9:49 AM
Looks pretty good. I like the Green Lantern CGI show. I will give this one a try too.
ThePowerCosmic - 11/5/2012, 9:58 AM
They screwed the pooch on this one! Why not just make new episodes of the 90s Bruce Timm show. That was the greatest cartoon and best version of Batman to date.
ironpool007 - 11/5/2012, 10:07 AM
Alfred looks like Vinnie Jones.
CrashTest - 11/5/2012, 10:11 AM
I like the Alfred take but Mr. Toad???
TheFirstAvenger97 - 11/5/2012, 10:13 AM
Alfred looks creepy, not watching this.
blvdnoise - 11/5/2012, 10:17 AM
smdh
JatevinM - 11/5/2012, 10:23 AM
You people who are complaining do realize that these are characters who actually exist in the comics right? I have no problem with a muscular Alred as the life he use to live would have caused him to have them.
RobLiefeldFan - 11/5/2012, 10:23 AM
@Jolt you must be silly you are judging the quality of story-telling when it's not even out yet lol wow jut wow..

I'm gonna give it a shot..
JatevinM - 11/5/2012, 10:28 AM
The people on this site complain oh so much about everything. Dc Nation has yet to give is anything bad so why start now.
