New “Beware The Batman” Episodes Not On Cartoon Network March 2014 Schedule

Cartoon Network has provided The World’s Finest with programming details for the month of March 2014, and once again, new episodes of Beware The Batman are absent from the schedule. The CG-animated series was removed from the Cartoon Network schedule back in October 2013, marking exactly six months since an episode aired on the US channel. Reasons for Beware The Batman‘s removal from the schedule have yet to be provided. Beware The Batman originally aired Saturday and Sunday mornings at 10:00am (ET/PT) on Cartoon Network as part of the hour-long DC Nation programming block, but has since been replaced with back-to-back Teen Titans Go! repeats. The DC Nation block itself has also occasionally been pre-empted entirely.

When asked for a statement, a representative for Cartoon Network would only say that there are future plans for Beware The Batman but no specific details are currently available.

While the remaining fifteen Beware The Batman episodes from the series’ first season currently remain unscheduled, two unaired episodes were included on the recent Beware The Batman – Season One, Part One: Shadows of Gotham DVD and Blu-ray release – “Attraction” and “Fall.” Details and a complete review of the Beware The Batman – Season One, Part One: Shadows of Gotham release, which collects the first thirteen episodes of the CG cartoon, is available right here at The World’s Finest.

The original report on Beware The Batman‘s removal from the schedule can be found here.

Beware The Batman debuted July 2013 on Cartoon Network, netting average but consistent ratings for the animation-themed channel. The CG-animated series incorporates Batman’s core characters with a rogue gallery of new villains not previously seen in animated form. Along with backup from ex-secret agent Alfred and lethal swordstress Katana, the Dark Knight faces the twisted machinations of Gotham City’s criminal underworld. Only eleven episodes of Beware the Batman have been broadcast thus far.

Additionally, DC Entertainment recently confirmed the cancellation of the short-lived Beware The Batman spin-off comic. Those details can be found here exclusively at The World’s Finest.

World Premiere Of “Son Of Batman” Animated Feature Confirmed For WonderCon Anaheim 2014

Representatives for WonderCon Anaheim 2014 have confirmed that the upcoming DC Universe Animated Original Movie title Son of Batman will debut at the popular annual convention. While the exact day and time have yet to be revealed, the 2014 WonderCon Anaheim convention will be held from April 18th – 20th, 2014 at the Anaheim Convention Center. Son of Batman is inspired by the acclaimed Batman storyline “Batman and Son” written by Grant Morrison, wherein Batman discovers he has a son – named Damian – with Talia Al Ghul. The animated feature will be released May 6th, 2014 on Blu-ray Combo Pack, DVD, and for Digital Download by Warner Bros. Home Entertainment. The following official details on the highly-anticipated premiere are below, courtesy of WonderCon Anaheim.

The world is turned upside down when Batman—one of the world’s greatest superheroes—finds out he is a father in the newest DC Universe Original Animated Movie, Son of Batman. This all-new, PG-13-rated film will have its world premiere at WonderCon Anaheim with a screening and panel discussion.

The screening at WonderCon marks the sixth DC Universe Animated Movie premiere at the event. Warner Bros. Animation and DC Entertainment have premiered Justice League: The New Frontier (2008), Wonder Woman (2009), Green Lantern: Emerald Knights (2011), Superman vs. The Elite (2012), and Superman Unbound (2013) exclusively at WonderCon over the past 6 years.

In Son of Batman, Batman learns he has a son, Damian—and to further complicate matters, the mother is Talia Al Ghul, daughter of one of his most dreaded enemies, Ra’s Al Ghul. When the odds quickly turn against Batman and Damian, the Dark Knight must become both father and mentor to the aggressive, agile new Robin. Together they form an uneasy alliance to try and thwart the criminal enterprise of Deathstroke and his army of ninja man-bats before there are international consequences.

Primetime television stars Jason O’Mara (Terra Nova, Vegas) and Stuart Allan (Grey’s Anatomy), the voices of Batman/Bruce Wayne and Damian, respectively, unite with several television greats to fashion these famed animated roles. Adding to the celebrity-laden voice cast is Thomas Gibson (Criminal Minds) as Deathstroke, Morena Baccarin (Homeland) as Talia, Xander Berkeley (Nikita) as Langstrom, David McCallum (NCIS) as Alfred, Giancarlo Esposito (Breaking Bad, Revolution) as Ra’s Al Ghul, Sean Maher (Firefly) as Nightwing/Dick Grayson, and Bruce Thomas (Kyle XY) as Gordon.

Produced by Warner Bros. Animation and DC Entertainment, Son of Batman is directed by Ethan Spaulding from a screenplay by Joe R. Lansdale, and based on a story by James Robinson. James Tucker is producer. Phil Bourassa is character designer. Sam Register (Young Justice, Teen Titans), Michael Uslan (The Dark Knight Rises) and Benjamin Melniker (The Dark Knight Rises) are executive producers. The film arrives May 6, 2014 from Warner Bros. Home Entertainment on Blu-Ray Combo Pack, DVD and Digital HD.

The annual WonderCon Anaheim convention is a massive celebration of comics and pop culture, and will be held from April 18th – 20th, 2014 at the Anaheim Convention Center. With over 56,000 attendees in 2013, WonderCon Anaheim continues to be one of the top comics and pop culture events in the country. 2014 marks the event’s 28th continuous year. More details on this convention, including program details and more, can be found at the official WonderCon Anaheim website.
