@DravenRoth994 Technically, 2:30am :P

I'm surprised a lot of people have waited until now to see them.

@MerlynTheGreat This show's Killer Croc is actually one of the favorites.

Deathstroke here was also cool after the disappointment that was Son of Batman's Deathstroke.

@PurpleWarrior13 It's OK. The show is coming back on Toonami. Also, Snyder is gone.

Not to mention the entire series is out on Amazon UK's Instant Video service.

@D.A.V.E. I know about all of that, and while I love Toonami, canceling the show and dumping it over there without letting it finish it's run on Cartoon Network is pretty disgraceful.

@D.A.V.E. I wonder if they'll do a season 2 with more famous Batman villains. I remember hearing Harvey Dent mention the Penguin in an episode.
D.A.V.E.
said at 1:54 PM on Wed Jun 18 2014
@Dustinman2012 They probably had plans for Penguin, since they also mentioned him in the news.

Not that it'll matter now.

At first, I was too much of a disgruntled YJ/GL fan to like this (or TTG), looking only for faults, but man, this actually became good. Especially good cliffhanger episode. Nice and exotic Ra's.

And yes, CN screws us once again. Though apparently, episodes 14-16 aired on NZ TV already.

I LOVE the textures and detail in the 3D models, but the animation itself ranges from "jerky" to "rubbery", which is a little off-putting for me. Like for example in the first episode when Professor Pig steps on the phone, looked a little choppy to me.

Ahahaha! I just heard CN pulled the show of the schedule! Idk if that means itll be on hiatus like they did with Young Justice for a while (with no explanation) or it's getting canned. I'm hoping for the latter. Maybe CN will realize they made the mistake of cancelling 2 GOOD DC Nation shows for this and that lackluster incarnation of a show they call Teen Titans Go

You'd think BTB suffering the same fate as GLTAS and YJ would cause the fandoms to unite against the stupidity that is Cartoon Network.

Between this and that ignorant article on io9, it seems like some GLTAS and YJ fans would rather kick the dog while it's down even though they've been in similar situations. Ugh.

I remember when I first heard this show I hated it and bashed it whenever I could.
Now, I really like it. It's in a different path then most things wih Batman and I like that. The villains they use are interesting and I like they make Batman seem experienced and intelligent but give him flaws.

said at 9:22 PM on Wed Sep 18 2013
@Dustinman2012 Are the Batman movies with other villains NOT Batman movies? Are the video games without him NOT Batman video games? Are the episodes of all shows that don't have the Joker NOT episodes of Batman shows?

I'm honestly glad we're not getting the same, overused villains.

@Dustinman2012 I'm also glad they are focusing on new villains, but I would still like to see some more traditional rogues as well. But until later in the series. For now, I'm really enjoying the direction they are taking.

@Dustinman2012 He tends to get really excessive and overused by writers. Every story has him 99%of the time.
pete

@D.A.V.E. I se4cond that I don't mind Penguin, Riddler, or Scarecrow appearing here but Joker tends to get really excessive when it comes to writers that he's in 99% of the stories in the comics. Writers rely on him too much and most stories follow this formula, Joker escapes from Arkham, hoes amok in the streets of Gotham in some crazy, zhany, scheme, Batman stops him and sends him back to Arkham, and the process repeats itself next time. I like the character and all since he's my avatar at the moment but he needs a rest.

@pete I too am glad there's no Joker in this series. Even if he did show up, want to know what's the first thing fans would say? WHERE'S MARK HAMILL?!? THIS GUY SUCKS COMPARED TO MARK HAMILL! Quite frankly, I don't even want to hear it.

I really like that this show doesn't really focus on all the very well known batman villains (as of right now) and has many more obscure, one shot villains in the original Batman comics, which I really respect the creators for doing that, and recreating these originally goofy designed or motivated characters such as Humpty Dumpty or Prof. Pyg and Mister Toad.
D.A.V.E.
said at 10:35 PM on Wed Aug 28 2013
@skeletonking1234 Humpty was never that goofy. He actually wasn't even a villain, just a mental patient in Arkham. This show made him a more malevolent version of the comics Humpty.

I'm not a big fan of CGI, but when it's done right (Ninja Turtles, this), I think it works pretty well.

Also glad to see Tara Strong reprising her role of Barbara Gordon. Hope to see more badass Batgirl action!

I also find it interesting that Ian Corlett is in the cast. Did he move to the US?

@PurpleWarrior13 I doubt it, considering his daughter Claire's still working in Vancouver. Ian's done other L.A.-based DC properties in the past, so I guess he's got dual citizenship or something?

@TheVengeanceKnight Yup. That Lego Kojima show is being saturated with ads and it comes out at the same time as this. TTGo! already had ads the moment the finales for YJ/GL:TAS aired, to rub salt on the wound.

And WB continues to wonder why these shows fail.

Even with rumors of troubles during production, a new Batman show is better than no serious-toned DC show.
I know they're deliberately avoiding the top tier rogues gallery, but in the event the show takes off, I really hope they make all Batman characters wide open for availability, for both villains and sidekicks.

Don't know Anthony Ruivivar and I'm not sure about how Alfred will be handled, but Sumalee Montano as Katana and Kurtwood Smith as Jim Gordon sound pretty good.
Foxwolf (Admin)
said at 9:01 PM on Thu Jan 31 2013
@Anicomicgeek I'm cautiously optimistic like most others but the quality in CG based on the latest image has upped my excitement a little. I know Ruivivar from the series Third Watch and he's a good actor. He's definitely playing Batman's voice deeper than his natural voice. I think it's a welcoming change for Alfred. Many fans know he has a past in the British secret service or whatever so at least we get to see what he was like in the good 'ol days.
TheVengeanceKnight

@Foxwolf I heard JB Blanc do an interview on Crispin Freeman's podcast, and his regular voice is perfect for Alfred, IMO.
Anicomicgeek
said at 9:43 PM on Thu Jan 31 2013
@Foxwolf

Good point. And I did watch the Hellsing special features, so like TheVengeanceKnight said, J.B. Blanc's normal voice could work for Alfred.

Still wish Alfred didn't look so... thuggish, though.
