Batman: Brave and the Bold News

I know this is old news, but I haven't talked about it yet since this is a new site. Batman: Brave and the Bold is a new animated series coming to Cartoon Network in March 2009. The series is based on the old comic book series of the same name which saw Batman team up with a different hero every month. So far 26 episodes have been contracted.

I am looking forward to this different approach to the Dark Knight. We have had two solid series that focus on the mythology of the Caped Crusader and it will be nice to see a series that uses Batman as link between the rest of the DC Universe.

So far the only names that have been confirmed as guest stars are Green Arrow, Blue Beetle, Aquaman and Plastic Man.

It has also been confirmed that Diedrich Bader, Oswald from the Drew Carry Show, will be the voice of Bruce Wayne. Bader already has a Batman connection: He was the voice of Zee, the robot from Batman Beyond spin-off The Zeta Project. Apparently, Wil Wheeton, Star Trek's Wesley Crusher, will also lend his voice to the project.

I hope this doesnt suck. I have high hopes, but some of the art looks too Superfriendsy.
