The good news is that Beware The Batman Is Returning to television on May 10. The bad news is that Beware the Batman is returning to television... at 3:00 a.m.
As confirmed by Cartoon Network, the remaining episodes of Batman's ill-fated CG animated series will be slid into the Toonami lineup that airs after the late-night Adult Swim block, starting the show over with the first episode on May 10, and getting to the last half of the first (and I'm going to go ahead and assume only) season starting July 27.
While there's no word yet on whether or not Beware the Batman will return to the air, fans of the Cartoon Network series now have something to look forward to, as its been revealed that the first Blu-ray collection will be released Tuesday, February 18, and will include never before seen episodes.
Valentine's Day is upon us once again, which means that tomorrow, we are all legally required to give the people we love little pieces of paper that sum up exactly how we feel about them, in tribute to a Catholic saint who was clubbed to death and beheaded. Truly, it is the most romantic of all times.
But for superhero fans, it does present a problem. Obviously, we all want to express our devotion to romantic partners while also expressing our devotion to our favorite characters, but are any of the superhero valentines that you can find in stores across the country actually good? If you pick up the Batman valentines at your local Target, will your love life be soaring to new heights above Gotham City, or will it be gunned down in an alley leaving you alone to wage war on crime? It's a daunting task, which is why every year, I take the hit for you to find out if there are any good store-bought superhero valentines.
Cartoon Network has pulled Beware the Batman off the air, even though it's only been part of its Saturday morning schedule since mid-July. The next episode, which was scheduled for this Saturday, won't be running.
Fans can hold out a little hope, though: Anthony Ruivivar, the actor who voices Batman on the show, Tweeted that it may return in January.
As Ray Croc famously said before a 10-cent hamburger crashed through his window and sent him on the path of vengeance against expensive hamburgers, "Children are a hungry, easily distracted lot." That's why the McDonald's restaurant made the decision to include toys with its kid-friendly Happy Meals -- and now, they're taking cheeseburgers and chicken nuggets back to their darker, more brutal roots with toys based on Cartoon Network's Beware the Batman!
Ever since that massively eyebrowed miser Simon Stagg showed up on the first episode of Cartoon Network's Beware the Batman, I've been waiting for the show to follow up and introduce Stagg's ever-present nemesis/potential son-in-law, Metamorpho, The Element Man! Now, it seems the wait is over: In this week's episode, Batman goes toe-to-toe with the one and only Rex Mason!

Beware the Batman only launched on Cartoon Network a few weeks ago, so as you might expect, I've got a lot of questions about the series. That's why I sat down for a roundtable interview at San Diego to talk with show producers Glen Murakami and Mitch Watson, along with JB Blanc (Alfred) and Anthony Ruivivar (Batman) to find out about the process of making the show, how the voices developed, and just why they wanted to do a cartoon about Magpie and Anarky.
Scooby-Doo and Batman have met before -- in one of the so-called New Scooby-Doo Movies of the early 1970s and then again on Batman: The Brave and The Bold. The Scooby gang and the Dynamic Duo will be teaming up once again, this time in a digital comic, DC Digital announced in a Thursday panel at Comic-Con International.
Following on the heels of last weekend's highly anticipated debut of Beware The Batman, another addition to the voice cast has been revealed, and it's news DC animation fans will likely enjoy: this morning, Tara Strongannounced that she'll be reprising her role as Batgirl in this Saturday's episode.
If you're a fan of Warner Bros. Animation's DC Comics work, then you're already a fan of Shane Glines. Since 1996, he's been working as a character designer on shows like Superman: The Animated Series, The New Batman Adventures, Batman Beyond and Justice League Unlimited, and now, he's hard at work on the new Beware the Batman.
