The next DC Comics superhero to join Cartoon Network’s DC Comics-based DC Nation block will be: the Dark Knight. It’s been too long without a “Batman” presence on television. Anyway, “Beware the Batman” will be a CGI show and feature obscure or relatively new rogues such as Anarky, Professor Pyg, Magpie and Mister Toad. Besides the villains, “Beware the Batman” will put sword-wielding DC Comics heroine Katana in the role of Batman’s sidekick, having previously appeared in the great “Batman: The Brave and the Bold.” Created by Mike W. Barr and Jim Aparo, the sword-wielding Tatsu Yamashiro has a comic book history with Batman that goes all the way back to the beloved 1980s series The Outsiders, and recently joined the Gotham-based Birds of Prey as part of DC’s New 52 initiative. In addition to Katana, Batman will also have his gun-toting ex-secret agent/butler Alfred on hand to assist him. “Beware the Batman” wasn’t expected to hit airwaves until 2013, but the show will now hit Cartoon Network later this year at an unknown date, possibly in time for “The Dark Knight Rises” or quite possibly after, maybe?
