Beware the Batman is an upcoming American computer-animated television series based on the DC Comics superhero, Batman. The series is set to air in the United States on Cartoon Network and Playhouse Jariel starting in 2013,[1][2] as part of their upcoming DC Nation block. It is their replacement for Batman: The Brave and the Bold.


Crime-fighting vigilante Batman teams up with new sidekick Katana and his gun-toting butler, Alfred Pennyworth to defeat crime in Gotham City, such as the evil Professor Pyg.[1][2]


After Batman: The Brave and the Bold ended it's run in November 2011, a new series went under production. So Batman could return to a more "serious tone."[3] When the series was first unveiled it was announced that lesser known villains would be introduced. Sam Register explained "We went in deeper into the villain library and pulled out some other villains" and the studio did not want the series another "Joker story".[4][5] With Batman receiving a new sidekick, Katana, Register even commented that "Katana is gonna be his new Robin, but not necessarily."[1]
