    I am still hopeful for this cartoon, I applaud the fact they're focusing on the lesser-known villains instead of Joker [seriously, Joker has been more overused than the Hulk], and the fact that IT IS [or at least was] dark is interesting me.

    Besides, we all know this "lighter and softer" shit won't hold up for long, when people forget about this goddamn shooting, it'll get back to normal.

    I'm still holding out hope, too. I'm actually glad they're focusing on obscure villains. It may give was our blackest mask and catche of rats.

    But as long as I get my 3 Gotham girls, I'll be okay.

    The idea of Alfred using firearms, while working with Batman (as opposed to using an old hunting rifle or shotgun to protect the cave, as he has in the comics, on ocassion) was always kinda odd to me anyways. So, if they explain that Alfred will be using some sort of Non-lethal Waynetech blasters, then I could live with that.

    It's unfortunate that the initial vision of the show is being changed, and of course the horrific events in Aurora were tragic, but I don't think this show in succeed or fail based on this once change. It will either be a good show, or it won't.

    Based on that image, are Batman's legs real short? I can't tell.

    And I hope that stupid Pyg guy isn't the main villain. I hate stupid-looking villains. (Except Killer Moth)

    I really hope that Anarchy ends up being a really good villain.

    The easiest solution is: His pistols fire tranquilizing darts, not bullets.

    I think that's just the awkard pose while he's running.

    Prof. Pyg was awesome in Batman and Robin...definitely cooler than Killer Moth.

    To be clear, the only silly thing about Pyg is his pig mask. He brainwashes people, seal their faces in a mask, removes their genitals and turns them into empty shells to do his bidding, because he seeks an "idealized state", and his concept of "idealized state" is some really creepy shit.

    About the designs looking horrible:

    I disagree.

    This is stupid nitpicking, but I really want Alfred to have some kind of hair.

    Gordon's the only decent one. Batman looks alien.

    Of course she's the only one you bring up because of her VA...


    Anyway, Alfred looks like TNBA Riddler.

    I know. I had a goddamn heart attack!

    I'm also not very keen on Alfred's design. Maybe some hair would make him a little better.

    I also kinda dig the other designs. But maybe on the Bruce, not have incredably dark lines on his face.

    It fits with the whole," I'm an insane Bruce Wayne, look at these large bags under my eyes!" approach to the show. Because you know, the guy won't try to sleep, let alone bother with eating anything.

    I love how grown men are bitching about what will most likely be only slight changes to a fucking kids cartoon while also managing to sound like insensitive jackasses in the process.

    And the guy wanting to make a petition to get the show canned and show reruns of the 90s series instead hilarious.

    Oh Ign you never fail to amuse.:lol 

    People swore up and down that Brave and the Bold would tank but it didn't and the older fans started to love it that'll probably repeat itself with this show.
