    FYI,

    Batman returns to TV in a new animated series, debuting July 13th on Cartoon Network. Looks like it's completely CGI.

    I remember seeing a trailer for this months ago. I always love a new Marvel or DC animated series.

    Wasn't this supposed to premiere at the same time as Teen Titans Go?

    If so, that's a hell of a delay! Teen Titans Went over half a decade ago! :eek:

    Not "Teen Titans", but "Teen Titans Go" (which is the name of the comic book based on the earlier TV series) - it has the same cast (and, in fact, the same voices), but it is drawn in a much brighter and simpler animation style, and the stories deal with what they do inside of the tower rather than fighting villains. (Example: in one story, they argue over who has to do the laundry; in another, when Starfire kills a bug that she then thinks was Beast Boy, Beast Boy makes her think that he is a ghost.)

    I don't like the CGI style. I will not be watching this. I love old style like the Justice League.

    The green lantern series done in this manner was pretty good

    Really? I thought it was HORRIBLE.

    Not a fan of CGI series. Not cuz of the CGI. But because it seems like they all are sub par. I really enjoyed Young Justice and the story telling that series did recently. I will give BtB a look of course but not holding my breath.

    I actually enjoyed the green lantern CGI series, which has apparently ended. I'll probably watch this too.

    It started off slow, but toward the end, it really picked up. I found the finale very touching. Made my tween daughter cry.

    I'm still upset with DC for canceling Young Justice to replace it with the drek that is Teen Titans Go. That also had a very emotional finale. Best DC animated series since the Justice League.

    Wasn't the SpiderMan that aired on MTV with Neil Patrick Harris all CGI?? I think so

    I see Simon Stagg was in the pilot episode. So will Metamorpho show up at some point?

    Isn't nearly all animation now CGI? Even South Park is now generated on a computer.
