Ohhh, Look…'Bat Man of Shanghai' from Cartoon Network

Lots of our favorite comic/super heroes have evolved since their first issue or appearance and usually it’s the bold and creative changes that make the most impact. Case in point; Batman has had more face-lifts than Joan Rivers but each time his reinvention or re-envisioning is something special. The video below is no exception. Sure we’ve seen Batman in the future (Batman Beyond) Batman in the past (Gotham By Gaslight), and now we have a new anime version that is as exaggerated as it is outstanding. No words, just watch…

100% dope right? This is part of DC Nation only on Cartoon Network and I soooo want to see more. Currently there is supposed to be a new Batman show airing on Cartoon Network next year called Beware the Batman but this looks incredibly more appealing. Can’t wait to see the whole thing (right now it’s a series of 1:15 clips on Cartoon Network) and with any luck this highly stylized concept might be developed into something like Avatar: The Last Airbender. Fingers crossed but either way I’m sold. What do you think??


  1. Good God I want that… I wanna see what all the other villains look like!!!

      Yeah, this level of imagination and out of the box thinking is stunning. Can’t wait to see more also! Thanks for the comment Nick.

    Neat. But I wonder what the series will say beyond “hey, look, isn’t it nifty to translate Batman into a whole other environment?”.

      Well I think that’s the point. A reinterpreted one-off just for fun…but it was a blast but agreed it’d lose the charm if it was all just crazy visuals. Sucker Punch anyone?:P
