Warner Archive To Premiere New “Beware The Batman” Episode At WonderCon

Warner Bros. Home Entertainment has provided details for Warner Archive Collection’s upcoming panels at WonderCon 2014. Recent DC Comics-inspired cartoons Beware The Batman, Batman: The Brave and The Bold, and Green Lantern: The Animated Series will all play a big part of Warner Archive’s planned events for the convention, including the debut of an unaired Beware The Batman episode. The 2014 WonderCon Anaheim convention will be held from April 18th – 20th, 2014 at the Anaheim Convention Center. Complete details, provided by the studio, can be found below:

Warner Archive Collection presents an incredibly eclectic quartet of panels at WonderCon this coming weekend, April 18-20, spotlighting everything from popular animated super hero TV series and kooky cartoon music to real-life heroes in animation (and back again) and the original transforming toy robots, The GoBots.

The talent on these four panels also covers the entertainment gamut, highlighted by the appearance of renowned screenwriter Steven E. de Souza (Die Hard, 48 HRS.) discussing his 1987 cult classic TV movie, The Spirit; beloved animation creators Alan Burnett, Kelly Ward, Giancarlo Volpe and James Tucker; popular voice actor Josh Keaton; and making his first-ever Con appearance, the heralded voice of the GoBots’ Leader-1, Lou Richards.

Also notable amongst the panel presentations will be the exhibition of unaired, never-before-seen footage from the animated series, Beware the Batman during the “Popular TV Super Heroes Look Better in Blu” panel on Saturday from 11:30am-12:30pm in Room 300DE.

In addition to the four panels, Warner Archive Collection will have an action-packed, informative booth presence on the convention floor of WonderCon. And immediately following the Sunday afternoon panel, the Warner Archive booth will host an autograph signing with Steven E. de Souza starting at approximately 1:15pm. Attached is a headshot of Mr. de Souza.
