Beware the Batman New Trailer
To quote my hetero life partner, @danlesidekick ‘this kinda looks badass’. Can’t say I disagree with him, although I’m still not quite sure about the CG styling and the whole Alfred with a Tommy Gun thing…it did work pretty well in Geoff John’s Batman Earth One though so who knows. The new show will debut on the Cartoon Network on Saturday, July 13 at 10 a.m. (ET/PT) as part of DC Nation…God only knows how long we Brits will have to wait.
A quick check on wikipedia has the cast as:
- Anthony Ruivivar – The Batman / Bruce Wayne
- Sumalee Montano – Katana / Tatsu Yamashiro
- J.B. Blanc– Alfred Pennyworth
- Udo Kier – Mister Toad
- Lance Reddick – Ra’s al Ghul
- Kurtwood Smith – Lt. James Gordon
- Cree Summer – Bethany Ravenclaw
- Grey DeLisle – Magpie
- Brian George – Professor Pyg
- Wallace Langham – Anarky
Some villains there we haven’t seen in animation before and some heroes too, Katana is part of Batman’s Outsiders team but in this rendition of the Batman myth she will be his sidekick…not robin! Another interesting point is that Jim Gordon is listed as Lt Gordon, not commissioner, so clearly this is set early on in Batman’s career, either that or they’ve messed about with the timeline.
