While most eagerly await the premiere of Beware The Batman CGI animated series on Cartoon Network , producer Mitch Watson spoke with Voices From Krypton about the pitch he did for a different series, Superman/Batman. Here’s an excerpt:
“The first version was an Escape From New York kind of thing, which was a lot of fun, but I agree it was probably too dark for where they wanted to go with the show. Then we came up with the lighter version of the show, which was Batman – specifically Bruce Wayne – and Clark Kent at the beginning of their careers. The show revolved around Clark as a cub reporter coming to Gotham City, where he meets Bruce. They’re also just becoming Batman and Superman. Clark and Bruce become friends, but Batman and Superman hate each other. Then they realize who each other is and get on the right side and end up living in the same building.”
Sounds interesting but I’d rather see other members of the DCU get an animated series if they were to go the team – up route (Booster Gold and Blue Beetle). Let me know your thoughts in the comments section below.
