Watch out villains: 'Beware the Batman' premieres in July

Beware The Batman

(Warner Bros/DC Comics)

Holy CGI Batman! The Caped Crusader receives yet another makeover in this latest addition to Cartoon Network’s DC Nation programming block. Followed by new episodes of Teen Titans Go! at 10:30 a..m., Beware the Batman hits screens Saturdays at 10 a.m., starting July 13. Unlike past animated iterations of The Dark Knight, the series showcases fully CGI visuals and a new sidekick—the sword-wielding Katana, who doubles as Bruce Wayne’s “bodyguard.” (Bruce Wayne obviously doesn’t actually need a bodyguard, but the image of a multi-billionaire is important.) And although Batman’s right-hand Boy Wonder isn’t on the show—at least not yet—trusty butler Alfred Pennyworth is still there to support and mentor the often broody superhero. But this time he may or may not also be an ex-MI6 agent. (Hint: He totally is.)

The show also features lesser-known additions to Batman’s impressive rogues gallery such as Anarky and Magpie. It even includes Professor Pyg and Mr. Toad, villains originally created for the comics by Grant Morrison. Check out the clip below for a peek at the new adventures of Gotham’s greatest hero:

Beware the Batman premieres on Cartoon Network on Saturday, July 13, at 10 a.m.
