Super-HQ New Image And Blurb For Cartoon Network's Beware The Batman

From the Cartoon Network Upfronts come the above image and following press release:

A cool, new take on the classic Dark Knight franchise, Beware the Batman incorporates Batman’s core characters with a rogues gallery of new villains not previously seen in animated form.

Along with backup from ex-secret agent Alfred and lethal swordstress Katana, the Dark Knight faces the twisted machinations of Gotham City’s criminal underworld led by the likes of Anarky, Professor Pyg, Mister Toad and Magpie.

Produced by Warner Bros. Animation, this action-packed detective thriller deftly redefines what we have come to know as a “Batman show.” Featuring cutting-edge CGI visuals to match the intricate twists and turns of the narrative, Batman steps out of the shadows and into the spotlight for an entirely new generation of fans.

With WBA’s Sam Register executive producing, and Batman Beyond’s Glen Murakami and Scooby-Doo! Mystery Incorporated’s Mitch Watson producing, Beware the Batman, based on characters from DC Comics, is coming soon to Cartoon Network!

The show is going to air in 2013, presumably as part of the DC Nation block.

This is one of the rare “franchises” (euchh) to have received a high-quality TV cartoon rendition in the past so Register, Murakami and Watson certainly have their work cut out.

“Ex-secret agent Alfred” probably gave a lot of fans pause (UPDATE: Or not – see comments), but I’m adopting the same wait-and-see that I do with everything.
