Default "The Batman" (Upcoming cartoon series)

http://www.thetechnodrome.com/forums...pic.php?t=8343

This is actually the first time I'd heard about it. It's trying to differentiate itself from Batman TAS with a whole new voice cast (BAD MOVE) and alternate timeline. I'd much rather have an update on the original Batman TAS rather than a whole new storyline.

The character designs so far look pretty good. Except for the Joker. My God.

Thoughts?

Actually, Batman looks pretty poor, too. But then I've always preferred a version of Batman with long, bladed ears and slight vampire overtones.

I only took a quick look - CGI? Yuck. Whatīs so bad about good olī hand made cel animation?
Even when not good, it often looks better than weak CGI IMO.
 

In a perfect world, this would be a signature. As it stands, it's just the lack of.

I know. There are certain things that I like CGI for (Beast Wars, Reboot). There are things, however, that should be left to cel animation. Batman is one of them.

And the Joker looks absolutely hideous. And not in the good way...

Does this mean Justice League Adventures is also no more? I could be miles behind here since we never really got it on terrestrial in the UK. But since they used the batman from TAS are they kicking it?

No, they're keeping Justice League the way it is.

This new Batman cartoon is to promote the Batman: Year One movie that's a few years down the line.

Boo! Batman and Joker are both ugly. I was hoping that this would be a little after batman beyond or atleast contiued with the batman animated series.
Sidenote: About justice league, in wizard it said the series is changing its name to justic league unlimted and that many more characters would make appearnces like red tornado, green arrow and black canary.

I donīt like the look of characters, Iīm not interested in the timeline (young Batman) they have chosen. -> If I can see it on Finnish television (doubt it) I check it, but otherwise Iīm not going to pay any attention to the series.

Yeah, Mark Hamil is one thing but Kevin Conroy was a big mistake. I know they want Batman to be younger (hopefully that won't mean "hipper") but still...

spengs i didnt even think of that....A young hip Batman *shudders* like Frank miller has often said Batman just needs to be old. its his oldness that makes him a cool character with all that "old veteran shut the f*ck up and listen to me kinda stuff"
If he is a young hip dude with a lighterhearted personality they might as well have him bitten by a radioactive bat and be done with it. *not sayin anything bad about spider-man sure he had his misfortunes but he is alot more easy going than Bats*

He'll probably end up with a personality and voice not unlike Terry from Batman Beyond. I mean, he did a good job and it worked perfectly for TERRY, but not Bruce Wayne.

Beside, Bruce Wayne wasn't a teenager or even in his early 20's when he first became Batman. He was a fullgrown adult. That's oneo f the things I liked about Mask of the Phantasm. It shows Batman in his early years but he's not young.

Well put.

Bruce spent the best years of his life training for his role as a crime fighter. His childhood, his teens and up through to his mid to late twenties were all dedicated to traveling the globe and becoming the greatest detective in the world.

He didn't just grab the cape and cowel and become Batman over night or even in as much as ten years. It was a process that took hard work and effort for the better part of two decades.

Yeah so Its safe to say we all agree on the character potrayed in the cartoon better not be a well adjusted teen or anything. im not to worried though as DC animation so far hasnt really potrayed him wrongly yet. Im iwlling to give them the benifit of the doubt. Yeah Batman is indeeed awesome He is actually my favorite comic character with Hawkeye as the second....

Oh good. I just wondered since a lot of companies when promoting a new version of a franchise like to remove all trace of the old version, usually using excuses like "To avoid confusion"
