This animated adventure series of Bruce Wayne -- billionaire by day, crime fighter by night -- starts as Wayne balances life as a free-wheeling bachelor with his role as the Caped Crusader.... See full summary »
Batman isn't going at it alone this time! From Warner Bros. Animation comes the latest interpretation of the classic Batman franchise. Our caped crusader is teamed up with heroes from across the DC Universe, delivering nonstop action and adventure with a touch of comic relief. Blue Beetle, Green Arrow, Aquaman and countless others will get a chance to uphold justice alongside Batman. Though still based in Gotham, Batman will frequently find himself outside city limits, facing situations that are both unfamiliar and exhilarating. With formidable foes around every corner, Batman will still rely on his stealth, resourcefulness and limitless supply of cool gadgets to bring justice home. Written by

In the Season 2 episode "Chill of the Night", which was agreed upon by fans to be one of the top 5 best episodes of the series, is also distinguished by having a few Batman-veterans making voice-over cameos. From "Batman: The Animated Series" (and its spin-offs), Kevin Conroy (Batman) voices the Phantom Stranger, Mark Hamill (the Joker) voices The Spectre and Richard Moll (Two Face) reprises his role (very briefly) as Two Face and as the mob boss who hires Joe Chill to kill Thomas Wayne. Also, from the "Batman" (1966) series, Adam West (Batman) and Julie Newmar (Catwoman), voice Thomas and Martha Wayne. See more »
Not the best of Batman, but not bad either... in fact it is quite good!
As a 17 year old female, I grew up on Batman, I love the Tim Burton movies, adore the animated series, liked Dark Knight and SubZero and sort of enjoyed Batman Forever. Batman and Robin though disappointed me, I know it is rather clichéd dragging this film down through the mud, but I was disappointed in how unintentionally camp it was.
Batman:The Brave and the Bold is not the best of Batman, but that doesn't mean it is bad. In fact it is quite good. While lacking darkness and sophisticated edge, it is fresh, fun and exciting. The animation style is well above average with interesting character designs and fluid colour, and the music is rousing and fun. The story lines do hold interest, the characters are great especially the villains even if Batman isn't as dark and brooding as I have come to remember him by and the voice acting is expressive and dynamic. Overall, a fun show, might be disappointing for Batman enthusiasts but for those who want a change for the better this is for you! 8/10 Bethany Cox
