Teaser and Info Up for the Beware the Batman Cartoon!

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!

I would be annoyed about the fact that they seem to be going with Katana of all people as a sidekick (seriously, do they hate the rest of the Bat Family who aren't Dick and Barbara?) as opposed to Cass Cain, Steph Brown etc. BUT the pedigree of the people involved indicate that this might actually be something kind of special, Mystery Incorporated, for example, is really the only Scooby Doo series that is legitimately good for example.

More news as I find it, though I have a sneaking suspicious that Katana's voice actress will be Lauren Tom, who is awesome, by the by, but they never seem to have anyone else avaliable when it comes to voicing female Asian characters. Except for that visually impaired woman who voiced Kimi in the Rugrats sequel show.
