New Action Clip From Kids’ WB!’s The Batman

Superhero Hype! has a first look at a new action clip from Kids’ WB!’s and Warner Bros. Animation’s original animated series, The Batman. This take on the Dark Knight premieres Saturday, September 11 (10:30 a.m. ET/9:30 a.m. PT), on Kids’ WB!’s new Saturday morning slate for the 2004-2005 season. The clip features Batman getting baited by villain Bane, who proves to be a sizeable opponent!

Based on the famed DC Comics super hero and the most complex and intriguing character in comic book history, The Batman is an innovative, all-new take on the Dark Knight that melds the renowned character’s extraordinary physical prowess and super-sleuthing skills with a new range of experimental Bat-gadgets and an amped-up Batmobile.

The Batman picks up his story in year three: in his mid-twenties, just finding his way as protector, defender and Dark Knight, while balancing his public persona as billionaire bachelor Bruce Wayne. Living in Gotham, this younger Batman will confront updated takes of familiar foes – from the likes of Joker, Penguin, Catwoman, Mr. Freeze, Riddler and Man-Bat – meeting each member of his classic Rogue’s Gallery for the first time.

Accentuating the original take on the series, The Edge from multi-Grammy Award-winning sensation U2 composed and performs the series’ theme song.
