Return of the Bat

The Batman animated series is coming back!

Here’s how Warner Bros. describes the series:

“The Batman will feature the most complex and intriguing character in comic book history in action-packed super-heroic adventures, melding the renowned character’s extraordinary physical prowess and super-sleuthing skills with a new range of experimental Bat-gadgets and amped-up Batmobiles. This series picks up Batman’s story in year three: in his mid-twenties, just finding his way as protector, defender and Caped Crusader, while balancing his public persona as billionaire bachelor Bruce Wayne.

“Living in Gotham, a metropolis where shadows run long and deep, beneath elevated train tracks and within a 150-year-old drainage system, this younger Batman will confront updated takes of familiar foes — meeting each member of his classic Rogue’s Gallery for the first time. From the likes of Joker, Penguin, Catwoman, Mr. Freeze, Riddler and Man-Bat, among others, the war on crime jumps to the next level with a new arsenal at the Dark Knight’s disposal, all operated and linked by an advanced remote-controlled invention he dubs the ‘Bat-Wave.’”

Hopefully, Paul Dini and Bruce Timm are masterminding this series. Their Batman animated series was probably the best incarnation of the Dark Knight ever filmed. I’m looking forward to this.
