Warner Bros. Home Entertainment has revealed plans to bring Cartoon Network's Beware the Batman: Shadows of Gotham - Season 1, Part 1 to Blu-ray next month. The computer animated series features the voice talents of Anthony Ruivivar as Bruce Wayne, J.B. Blanc as butler Alfred Pennyworth, Sumalee Montano as swordmaster Katana and Kurtwood Smith as Lt. James Gordon. Season 1, Part 1 is being released on February 18th.
Official Synopsis: Another night falls in Gotham City and the ever-vigilant Dark Knight watches over his city and its citizens. With the help of his ex-secret agent butler, Alfred, and sword-wielding assassin Katana, the Batman wages a tireless war against Gotham's twisted criminal underworld. Buckle up for 13 all-new adventures from the first season, and ride along as Batman battles the evil machinations of Professor Pyg, Magpie, Mister Toad and criminal mastermind Anarky. It's a crime-fighting collection of hidden clues, cool tech and detective thrills as Batman prowls in the shadows, ready to deliver action-packed excitement and justice.
Tech specs and special features have yet to be detailed.
I may consider a proper Season 1 release, but I'm not sold on what is essentially a Volume set. It goes without saying that I'm praying we get Batman: The Animated Series (plus JL Unlimited, Batman Beyond and Superman) soon, it's clear that many people want that.
This is essentially season 1. They only produced 13 episodes, 11 of which aired. CN have not made a decision yet on if or when this series will come back. Luckily, all 13 will be on this set. I'm glad they announced the Blu-ray, because with the animation, I really wanted it in 1080p HD and SDVD. Day one purchase.
