A promotional image revealed at the Las Vegas Licensing Expo has comic book journalists whipped up into a speculative lather. The image, featuring a picture of Batman with a logo reading "Batman Unlimited," caused CBR reporter Steven "The Gerd" Gerding to claim that DC is planning yet another Batman animated series on Cartoon Network, presumably as part of DC's ongoing plans to wage psychological warfare on its cartoon fans by repeatedly creating new shows and then canceling them as soon as fans get attached.
Then again, Gerding also points out that the Batman logo in the image looks just like the one featured on Mattel toy packaging. So maybe it's a new toy line. "Then again, it could be a line of designer cookware, or garden tools, or even a new line of promotional images designed to promote other promotional images." Gerding admitted in his desperate report. "Who knows?!"
"I just wanted to get a report up before Bleeding Cool," Gerding added. "They whip us when Bleeding Cool beats us to news."
"Help meeee!" Gerding scrawled at the bottom of the report in what appeared to be his own blood.
With no more information forthcoming form The Gerd, The Outhouse looked to industry experts for more information.
"It's a sex toy line!" offered Thaddeus T. Puffinbottoms, professor of Watchmen Toasters at the prestigious DeVry University. "Or maybe it's a new financial institution designed to lend money to comic readers that can't afford $4.99 comics."
Whatever the case, it's clear that DC is planning something. If not, why would they even attend the expo? It sounds kind of boring. Stay tuned to The Outhouse, and we'll keep you updated.
