Another Clip From 'BEWARE THE BATMAN'
Another clip from tomorrow's episode of "Beware the Batman" has been released online along with stills of Silver Monkey and Anarky. Be sure to tune in tomorrow morning at 10AM PST/EST to watch the series premiere.
The show's producers are out to make Anarky, the "Joker" of the first season; he'll be the main antagonist throughout the first introductory episodes.
This guy, who we assumed was Ultra-Humanite is actually Silver Monkey, a member of the League of Assassins. This character makes Professor Pyg and Mr. Toad look like A-listers because I was pretty sure he was an original creation till a quick search revealed that the character appeared in "Detective Comics #685" back in 1995.
Here's a bit more background on the villains as disclosed by USA Today: "The eco-terrorist duo of Professor Pyg (Brian George) and Mr. Toad (Udo Kier) — who first appeared in Grant Morrison's recent Batman & Robin comic — tussle with Batman in Saturday's premiere episode, and will be followed by the likes of the politically charged Anarky (CSI's Wallace Langham), the jewel thief Magpie (Grey DeLisle), and Ra's al Ghul (Lance Reddick) and the League of Assassins, who played a role in director Christopher Nolan's recent Batman films." Lady Shiva is also confirmed to appear as a member of the League of Assassins.
