Aurora Shooting Prompts Changes to New BATMAN Cartoon

BEWARE THE BATMAN Announced for 2013


Last week's tragic shooting in Aurora, Colorado, has led to changes in the upcoming Beware the Batman animated series, Variety reports.

Warner Animation VP and series executive producer Sam Register is reported as ordering a review of the entire series, leading to alterations including, "changing the shape of gun barrels from round to square for the purpose of rendering the weapons in a more stylized manner reminiscent of sci-fi fare."

The series, scheduled to debut on Cartoon Network in spring of next year and first announced in 2011, showed a gun-toting Alfred in early promotional imagery. Beware the Batman is slated to include a major role for Katana, plus villains including Professor Pyg and Anarky.
