Trivia

Scarecrow, Ras Al Ghul, and Two-Face were restricted from appearing on this series because of their planned use in Christopher Nolan's live action Dark Knight movie trilogy. Scarecrow and Ras Al Ghul appeared in Batman Begins (2005) and Two Face appeared in The Dark Knight (2008) (which also prominently features the Joker, but since he is Batman's greatest enemy, he was allowed to appear on the series). Bane and Catwoman were never restricted because development for The Dark Knight Rises (2012) did not take place until this series ended. See more »

a new action style
11 November 2008 | by (az) – See all my reviews

Batman has a more slick animation in this series that focuses more on style and snazzy moves and action rather than heavy storyline. The Clayface storyline is one villain that is more in depth as far as plot and is well done taking a few twists and turns. Most of the villains he comes across know some martial arts which make for more formidable opponents. It is a change from Batman TAS and manages to have faster paced action and a few reinterpreted villains yet still maintains Batman's struggle to fight crime yet maintain his sanity. As one that loves Batman TAS, i still find The Batman lots of fun as it focuses on the action and gadgets a lot more and i find it quit amusing to even see penguin have a few martial art tricks up his sleeve (he does have an explanation) and i like his cronies. The series later turned a more camp style with an intro that sounded like the 60s Batman TV show which i wasn't too hip on yet the series still had some excellent episodes. I say quit fighting about which animated series is better and just enjoy both for what they give.
