Batman: The Brave and the Bold coming to Cartoon Network

Just saw this at tv.com:





Cartoon Network just held its upfront in New York today. They released a good chunk of info about their upcoming schedule and a slew of new images. To be honest I had no idea there even was a BATMAN: THE BRAVE & THE BOLD cartoon in the works! I'm soooo excited! I think I'd seen it mentioned somewhere once but it went in one ear and out the other. But to be surprised by new pictures... wow!

Check out the new Blue Beetle!

I don't know about batman but that 3d clone wars looks great.

Oh for anyone that has dropped comics, the old blue beetle was shot in the head. Batman didn't kill him but he died because batman was being a ass.

Is that what that Booster Gold story arc did? I love Ted but the New BB is cool too.

Anyway, I guess ending The Batman makes sense now that this new series has been revealed. I'm looking forward to it.

That's good.

I'm not liking the art shown. Too childish for my tastes.

New Blue Beetle & Old Green Arrow?

From those two pictures, it looks like shit. Obviously, I'll reserve judgment, but I don't get why they'd cancel The Batman for this.

I'll wait to see some finished animation before commenting on the style.

I (and many others) didn't really care for The Batman animation at first, but grew to like it.

That is what i have been wondering too. Why does DC and WB have to re-create a new version of Batman for cartoons every 2 years now? The awesome thing about the 90's DC animated series was that the same canon was used for everything and it was interesting and dark, like Batman is supposed to be. Now they want to dumb it down again to kids and put a lighter Batman that could borderline on campy and destroy the overall image of the character.

Maybe the ratings weren't that great?

Plus, i'm sure new lines of cartoons means new merchandising opportunities and new toys that kids need to have.

Bingo. These shows, while they have lots of adult fans, are primarily aimed at kids. Dumping a cartoon show after 3-5 years means new toy sales when the new version is released. Cartoons aimed solely at adults like The Simpsons really don't have this concern. While it looks like the Neal Adams era Batman costume which I like(maybe a little more cartoony), these drawings don't really inspire confidence. What is up with Batman's jaw? It's the same problem I had with the visual design of Batman in the last cartoon series. Batman does not have a deformed jawline.

No it doesn't but it would be cool if they do the B&tB's that Adams and Aparo did; they had the best stories. Those were the two best runs of the series. I have every issue Adam's drew.

Probably not, even though he has been the best Batman ever. That would make too much sense to WB and the corporate mentality.

Are people really still whining about Conroy when it's already been a few series without him?

Ahhh. Remember the good 'ol days when you didn't need to come up with a new line of cartoons to pimp some great action figures?

Unless I missed the episodes where Deep Dive, Air Attack or Jungle Tracker Batman were featured..

Diedrich Bader is the NEW Voice of Batman.

http://www.comicscontinuum.com/stori...4/09/index.htm


From the Promo Art, I would Batman looks like the Dick Sprang version from the Mid-1940's to the early 1960's.
Which looks good to me.
