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

Although Batman's regular look in this series is that of the Dick Sprang era of the 50s, many of his other incarnations appear at least once throughout the show's entire run. These include his vampiric version from the "Crimson Mist" graphic novel, his hardboiled version from Frank Miller's "The Dark Knight Returns" and even George Clooney's portrayal from "Batman & Robin" (1997).

This show is excellent entertainment suitable and aimed for kids. It pairs one of the most popular and greatest superheroes of all-time with some un-recognized (but good) B or even C level Superheroes that never get much attention. While I like Tim Burton's Batman, love Batman: The Animated Series and love Nolan's Batman, This is not dark, gritty, and doesn't have an amazing awe-inspiring story, but it's it not trying to. This is not the tragic, mob-boss/realistic villain fighting, detective Batman. This is a lighter but not ridiculous (Batman & Robin), superhero Batman. The animation is different than other prior DC Comics cartoon, but it's good, smooth animation.
So, If you want something dark, gritty, and thought provoking like The Dark Knight or Batman The Animated Series? Go watch TDK or TAS. This is entertainment, and some good entertainment at that. I would rather have good, pure entertainment than a failed attempt at another dark Batman.
Fanboys need get over it and stop being whiny baby-men. Remember, there's always that off button on the remote.
That's all I've got to say about that.
