Shortly after the new report/rumors about the new Batman TV show we get our first Beware the Batman teaser trailer. And while 24 seconds isn’t much it’s enough to speculate with. And starting with a new Batmobile never hurts either.
The feelings on the new computer animated Batman TV show for Cartoon Network seem to be mixed so far. The YouTube page for the teaser has been viewed over 70,000 times with some of the following comments:
Correct me if I’m wrong, but aren’t teasers supposed to make you WANT to watch the show?
This looks like CRAP! The animation looks like something a film student does at the last minute for an easy grade
The 90s called, they want their CG back
Looks like someone nerd decided to make a batman series using powerpoint. Damn at least update to Office 2010. This looks horrid.
This looks like crap. I expect this to last 6 episodes or something before cancelling.
If DC wants people to get excited about this series, they’re going to need to bring something more impressive to the table.
Ok, so those are anything buy mixed feelings (and no, YouTube probably isn’t the best source for informative commentary, but the wide range of people it reaches can’t be matched) and it seems like a lot of people are worried about the animation. Keep in mind though that the same worries happened when the Green Lantern Animated Series had their first teaser and recent reviews and panels seem to reflect nothing but positives about the show now that it’s in full swing.
As far as Batman shows go this one does seem to have an uphill battle though, especially since this will be the first sole-Batman TV show since The Batman, which despite it’s five season run never seemed to grasp the same excitement as it’s Bruce Timm-predecessors Batman Beyond and Batman: The Animated Series.
As for myself it’s a new animated Batman TV show, the only way I wouldn’t check it out is if it was a Joel Schumacher directed claymation.
Ok…I’d still watch that.
I just wouldn’t admit it.
