I can't think of any CG cartoon other that Star Wars that has impressed me with their visuals, but a few have won with over with their writing. let's hope this is closer to Roughnecks/Beast Wars quality writing and less like Green Lantern or Transformers Prime.
Star Wars: Dark Times,
Richard Stark's Parker by Darwyn Cooke,
Transformers: More Than Meets the Eye
I'm curious whether Anarky's going to still be Lonnie Machin as a kid or whether they're going to have him be an adult. I also wouldn't mind if he has some elements from the second Anarky, Ulysses Hadrian Armstrong. His overall antagonistic nature and hood would suggest this as part of his character type, but i could see them making the full size Anarky a hologram or something.
And I'm hoping Katana has some kind of tie to Bruce's training days. It would be fun if they went with the route where she was his confidant and understood the world of the assassins a little better than he did. And who knows? Maybe if she's still tied to assassins we will see Shiva and Cassandra Cain sometime.
And while I like that they want to explore newer and forgotten villains, I hope they don't shy away from using a few classics. It would be interesting if, say, Joker were to show up to contrast his nihlism with Anarky's idealism or if we finally did get an animated Hush.
I wouldn't worry about them excluding the classic villains. Brave and the Bold was supposed to exclude the typical Batman villains, yet the final team-up of the first season was with Joker.
I do wish them luck in making some obscure villains popular. I would love to see guys like Anarky and Pyg become more well-known.
Yeah. While I'm excited about them using the more obscure villains, I can't imagine they won't eventually do something with the more popular ones. Maybe they could save them up for very important stories though like season finales or premiers (if they get that far).
I am very excited about this show. Even more so since Comic-Con.
I'm pretty optimistic about the show so im gonna give it a whirl.
They sure did a great job of making it as different from any Batman show that has come before.
There's another interview. Nothing really new, but he mentions that Cypher from way back in the 90's Detective Comics and Robin will show up. He also says that they'll be "rejiggering" and changing up some of the more obscure villains. Murakami mentions that they did the same thing back when he was working on BTAS back in the 90's, and says that he remembers the fandom not liking the show's take on Two-Face when it first came out.
Really excited for this show now. Love the stylized Gotham and detective Batman they're going for.
Makes sense. He's not an overly popular character compared to the others, and the last time he was portrayed seriously was back in the Timmverse. Plenty of room to reimagine him for this show. I wouldn't mind them making Bane a big bad after anarchy, just so they'd have to focus on his brain.
