Warner Bros makes changes to the upcoming animated series
According to an article at "Variety" it's being reported that in light of the Aurora CO shootings, Warner Brothers is making some changes to the upcoming Cartoon Network "Batman" TV show. Cartoon Network is also owned by Time-Warner.
Although Warner Brothers has not commented on this yet it's being reported that their Animation Executive VP, Sam Register, asked the show's Producers to scrutinize any depictions of weapons. According to sources:
An unspecified number of alterations were made to some designs and situations on the series to minimize the amount of weapon imagery deemed too realistic.
Sources also state the Register requested these changes of his own volition and not due to any higher-up Executive orders.
The series will bypass some of the more well-known villains depicted in the films for more obscure arch enemies derived from the comics like Anarky, Professor Pig and Mister Toad.
WB will also release an animated feature in the Fall adapted from the Frank Miller graphic novel "The Dark Knight Returns." Historically these films tend to carry a more mature tone and and, if following tradition, may carry a PG-13 rating.

About the Author - IvCNuB4
IvCNuB4 likes to maintain an air of mystery by never publicly revealing his true name unless you are one of the four lucky Outhouse posters he has PM'd it to. A life-long Chicago native, he was introduced to comics by his older brother's vast collection of Silver Age issues. When he is not at his day job as an IT geek or making the most of Chicago's three months of incredible summer, he can found spending way too much time with his very large, very loud Italian family. You will never find him on the likes of Facebook or Twitter as he scoffs at the necessity of most forms of social media.
