Though it's been a busy few weeks, World's Finest noticed something particular: Cartoon Network's January schedule has hide, nor hair of any new episodes of Beware the Batman. When the series was yanked in October (a fate that befall its two preducessors), it was assumed by Batman himself, actor Anthony Ruivivar that the show would return in January. Well, that doesn't appear to be the case. The last tweet the actor gave on the subject was December 29:
“@thejohnprout: is there a premier date for Batman yet? Watch it religiously, and it just started its huge arc..” -heard jan18 but not sure— Anthony Ruivivar (@AnthonyRuivivar) December 29, 2013
Worse, also reported on by World's Finest is this fact; when they contacted a Cartoon Network representative and the answer they gave was this: "Updates will be forthcoming soon about future plans for Beware The Batman." It should be noted that last night a brand new episode of Teen Titans Go! did air and will continue airing new episodes. Production on Beware the Batman still ongoing and there's over sixteen episodes of it's first season that haven't aired yet. Though most importantly, it's been over a week since World's Finest put two-and-two together.
The show hasn't done as well as Teen Titans Go! has been doing. Even more, the topic of the show itself spurred the now legendary conversation between Paul Dini and Kevin Smith on the later's podcast. Are we watching yet another show be torpodeoed because it isn't a success in merchindising or as Teen Titans Go! has been, and also way cheaper to produce?
It's something to consider as we await news to which we will update you of any new details.
