The first promo is from the Huffington Post which showcases the animation quite nicely with the Batman squaring off the Magpie. Further, the Post reveals most of the voice cast for the show: Batman will be voiced by "Banshee's" Anthony Ruivivar, JB Blanc as Alfred Pennyworth (described as an ex-secret agent) and Sumalee Montano (who is at first Bruce Wayne's bodyguard but eventually becomes his sidekick Katana). Not mentioned, but first confirmed was Kurtwood Smith as Commissioner James Gordon.
As who'll be giving voice to the many cadre of villains of the show: Udo Kier as Mr. Toad, Brain George as Professor Pyg, Grey DeLisle as Magpie, Lance Reddick as Ra’s al Ghul, and Wallace Langham as Anarky. The creators of the series are Sam Register as executive producer with Glen Murakami and Mitch Watson producing the show.
Here's their promo:
Not to be outdone, Cartoon Network also has put out a promo for the show. This one features the extended chase sequence between the Batman, Mr. Toad, and Professor Pyg along with a gadget filled battle the Batman has with his arch-nemesis for the first season, Anarky.
Beware the Batman arrives Saturday morning July 13.
