"Beware The Batman: Sacrifice"- September 28, 2013

26 September 2013 8:08 PM, PDT | SneakPeek | See recent SneakPeek news »

Sneak Peek images and footage from the next episode of the CG-animated TV series "Beware The Batman", titled "Sacrifice", directed by Sam Liu, airing September 28, 2013:

"...'Anarky' returns once again to challenge 'Batman' – but this time, his plan is far more deadly. Stealing a valuable object from the 'League of Assassins', Anarky pins the blame on Batman. At the same time, Anarky informs Batman that he knows where he can find the League. 

"Although he knows it’s a trap, Batman goes with 'Katana' anyway. As it turns out, Anarky has led both Batman, Katana, League leader 'Lady Shiva' and her ninja assassins to a building that handles rare and deadly diseases. 

"Once inside, Anarky releases one of the airborne viruses in the building. Now Batman and the others have to find a way to escape before being killed. One more thing: if the virus gets out…Gotham is doomed! »

Murakami also discusses how the show seeks to keep the new villains from looking like carbon copies of Batman's more traditional rogue's gallery, i.e. keeping Cluemaster from being a poor man's Riddler or Magpie from being a Poison Ivy knockoff. There's a lot more insight from Glen in the video above about some of the behind-the-scenes decision-making on the show. Be sure to tune in tomorrow for an all new episode which contains the debut of the season's main villain, Anarky.
