Maybe I'm regressing back to childhood...but I actually like these designs! :surprised:

Bats looks cool, at least it's more of a departure from the last two shows style wise. The Beetle looks absolutely awesome. And that's Green arrow? Should we call him the Christmas Arrow? He looks ridiculous in those colors... and CLEAN SHAVEN?!?!?
To distance their Arrow they should have used the hooded costume. I always preferred the hood to the robin hood hat anyway.

Verrrrry nice! I hope it's as good as Justice League was.
Yeah, I liked the Hood over hat too.

Interesting. I never thought of seeing a Genndy-style Batman show.
Will he team up with the Justice Friends and Monkey? And be annoyed by his sister DEE-dee? :-p
Of course, if it can also mimic Genndy's action style (like for Samurai Jack and the Clone Wars miniseries) then this might be worth watching.

What the flying blue f--- is this?
It's like the 60s Batman with Silver Age Green Arrow... and the modern Blue Bettle? What drugs were they on when they thought up this cartoon?
They seem to be mixing apples and oranges. Hell, I'd be glad to see Jamie, the new Beetle in a cartoon, but... this doesn't make sense! Hell, if they wanted a fun cartoon, go make the old Justice League International with Ted's Blue Beetle and that more fun cast.

Okay see this is what I'm talking about when I say that American animation has gone way down hill. I mean what the heck is this! What is that thing to the right Batman it certainly isn't Blue Beetle. This whole thing looks it should be called "The New New Adventures of Batman & Robin" (excluding Robin) What were they thinking? "Oh Justice League New Frontier was really popular so lets make a new show set in that time period!" Yeah cause that's what fans are looking for.

woo-wee that looks bad, but then each year I get farther out of the demographic. sigh!

Actually, Batman15, that's the new Blue Beetle. It's from the current comics. Though heaven knows why they wouldn't use Ted for a more fun series. And it doesn't make sense if they're using the 60s to 80s Batman and Silver Age beardless Green Arrow. Hell, this isn't even New Frontier. At least that was a conistant time period. Again, this is a mess.
El Bicho, I'd say it's not even the demographic. Do you want kids learning about the DC heroes you know, or some stange amalgam dictated by suits at Warners? I have young cousins who don't know Dick Grayson is or his story, but they watched the Teen Titans toon and know that Robin.

I have to agree with many others on here, the animation looks bad. It's too cartoony and childish. Why couldn't they take a more serious tone with it, as was the Brave and the Bold comics? Even my 5 year old son won't like this and I'm sure that's who they are aiming for.
At least the animation style is not like Timm's, which is great but we've seen that style too much these past few years. Actually, it would have been better and as Xenos said, they should have come up with a new Justice League International cartoon.
Not only are today's cartoon watchers young to older adults but young children who want to see mature style cartoons as well. Not this.

"Darn, the luck, darn!".
