...An Asian sidekick who isn't Cass. Or at least she probably isn't. Behold!

From Comics Alliance,
Though Batman: The Brave and The Bold is drawing to a close this year on Cartoon Network, Batfans won't be without an animated incarnation of the Caped Crusader for long. The CG animated Beware the Batman is coming in 2013, as revealed by Warner Bros. Animation executive vice president for creative affairs Sam Register this past weekend at the MIP Junior conference in Cannes, France. This version of Batman is pictured facing villains like Professor Pyg and Mister Toad with the help of a tough-looking Alfred and new partner Katana (who is apparently not necessarily a full-fledged Robin replacement). Glen Murakami (Ben 10, Teen Titans) has been named as the show's executive-producer. Like Green Lantern: The Animated Series set to debut in early 2012, Beware the Batman seems to adapt Bruce Timm's signature style in CG.

Along with Beware The Batman, Cartoon Network viewers can expect to see an assortment of other DC Comics content soon including Batman claymation shorts from Aardman Animation (Wallace and Gromit), Plastic Man shorts, Doom Patrol shorts, and Super Best Friends Forever, a series of Batgirl/Supergirl/Wonder Woman shorts by the creator of The Hub's My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic animated series. Register also briefly mentioned that Warner Bros. was working on a project with Conan O'Brien's production company, which could mean more Flaming C."

HOLY CRAP! LAUREN FAUST IS GONNA BE DOING A BATGIRL/WONDER WOMAN/SUPERGIRL SERIES OF SHORTS! :DDD Still, the potential for a Batman show with (maybe) Cass is kind of awesome, Glen Murakami does good work and a potential Aardman/Faust team up kind of rocks hard.

Video here, kinda long though,

More information here,

For the legalities',

Well. That...wasn't what I would expect from a Batman cartoon. But hell, I loved B&TB and the same people are doing this, and...let's be honest, it's a Batman cartoon, I gotta give it a shot.

Whilst Cass would be awesome (as Blackbat perhaps) and I would love it to be her, they do seem to specify that it's Katana we're seeing there.

Katana is Tatsu Yamashiro rather than Cass Cain.

Professor Pyg in a Cartoon Network show. That I did not expect.

Yeah, though they had the benefit of not having any lines or actual presence except as part of a montage.

Looks like a more stylised version of the DCAU characters. Not sure about the 3D look though...the characters look really blocky.

Also is that Katana on the far left?

Professor Pyg, Toad, and possibly Jezebel Jet. Grant Morrison has invaded the animated world. God help you all.

I still say "Batman: Brave and the Bold" is possibly the only series I can ever imagine making a good job of Morrisons Doom Patrol. (And their Brotherhood of Dada would surely have been AWESOME... Matt Frewer as Mr Nobody for starters)

We just HAD a Batman-centered show. Why not do a new Superman one? Or give someone new a try like Wonder Woman or Flash?

Ugh! Keep it away! Why a CGI? If they are gonna go the CGI right, at least make sure the animation looks good. This just looks horrid. We can't get the No Man's Land series but we gotta get this? Chibi Roy Harper is not pleased.

I'm not passing judgement and will check it out, but a few things about that shot make me pretty pessimistic.

First, I'm really not a fan of the really angular style. Batman's face in particular reminds me of some sort of Bat-mite type caricature or something.

Secondly, is Alfred fighting alongside Batman, wielding two pistols? Not only is that an incongruous take on the character, does Batman really have no qualms about fighting alongside a guy using guns - you know, the things he tends to detest in pretty much all interpretations of the character?

I'm honestly much more interested in what Lauren Faust's going to do with her side of the next-gen DC animation.

you mean like gordon and the police. as long as they're not like the punisher, he's usually fine with them.

Which is why I'm hoping this series' version of Two-Face will be the Punisher with a coin fetish.

Was it that hard to just make her Cassandra Cain?

If this is an alternate continuity (bad ass Alfred!) anyway, she might as well be Cass. Sheesh DC. Good move putting Katana in as a main lead, but my god way to push the sore Cass button where it hurts. Like want, but not want? I dunno.

I still think a Powerpuff Girls/Josie & The Pussicats/Charlie's Angels/Sailor Moonesque hybrid Batgirl show with all the "Batgirls" as the same age as a team would be insanely popular.

Okay, that would be incredibly awesome. You had me at Josie & the Pussycats, but the Sailor Moon part sold. (And funny, PPG was apparently created because McCracken was sick of Sailor Moon and magical girl shows.)

BTBATB ended with a delicious Paul Dini Bat-Mite (and AMBUSH BUG!! SQUEE!!!) meta-meta-episode that more or less informed us of things to come, in the form of a CGI "Batgirl" show featuring a special Bat-guest -- lol.

Unlike their print brethren, DCAU hasn't let me down in… has it really been several decades? Wow. Well, anyway, I'm on-board for whatever animated Bat-show they want to make.

That was from the final episode of Batman: The Brave and the Bold. There was a point to that Batgirl trailer.

Well, if we won't be getting these character (with butchered redesigns) in the current DCnU, at least we'll be able to get them somewhere else :P

(Maybe) Cass? I can be as hopelessly hopeful as the next Cass fan, but when they specifically name the character as being Katana, who is specifically another character in the DC universe, and is therefore specifically not-Cass, then I'm not sure where you saw any leeway in saying it might be Cass. Man, don't get my hopes up like that!
