It’s… different. Combining an almost spy movie-like theme with smooth animation to convey a view of Batman’s world that is at once familiar, yet visually distinctive. I’m not really sure what to think of it yet.
While I respect the decision to deviate slightly from the core Batman story, having a gun-toting Alfred doesn’t feel right for so many reasons, and the decision to focus on lesser-known members of Batman’s rogue’s gallery could be problematic. Most of them are lesser-known for a reason.
I guess we’ll all have to tune in to see if it’s a show worthy of the Dark Knight. I’ll reserve judgment till then.
BEWARE THE BATMAN premieres Saturday, July 12 at 10am/9am central time on Cartoon Network. For a look at the previously released “sizzle reel”, click here.
