Beware The Batman Thread

Now that at least two episodes are out, what do you all think?

For myself, I'm liking it. The voice work, the music, even the tweaked concepts such as Alfred being a former MI6 agent (SAS).
The Wayne Manor recalls the classic Batman The Animated Series with a touch maybe of The Batman's as well.
The Batcave is a mix of both prior animated series mentioned plus the modern comics and a bit more.

I honestly did not think much going based on the few images I had seen, but so far, it works. Yes I keep thinking of the recently ended Green Lantern Animated Series, but this is worth it. The continuity on the series is a first and I like that.

I've only watched the first episode but I liked it.

It has a lot of room to grow of course, but it isn't as bad as people feared it was going to be (like every WB cartoon people whine about before hand)

Yes, we all hate them until we see them. :lol: Guilty as charged.

I think that much like GL, people will start loving it as it goes on. It's like The Batman right now, a young Batman with not all the pieces/characters there yet, but it's building. Also playing with concepts that are based within the comics, if you read enough and recall some stuff.

The Katana/Alfred reveal(s) in the second episode were well done.

Yeah, I like him because he makes me think of Jason Statham.

It was much better then I was expecting, although the villains were a bit lame and I don't like Batman's flat head.

Yup! Except Ultimate Spider-Man. It deserves our hate. :P

Great protagonists and tone.

The villains are horribly lame though.

I kind of hate this show, but I chalk that up to my disappointment that they canceled Brave and the Bold. That, and I loathe CGI.
