Running for three seasons (65 episodes) which started in from November 2008, Batman: The Brave and the Bold featured Batman in a variety of team ups with a wide rang of superheroes…
Batman isn’t going at it alone this time! From Warner Bros. Animation comes the latest interpretation of the classic Batman franchise. Our caped crusader is teamed up with heroes from across the DC Universe, delivering nonstop action and adventure with a touch of comic relief. Blue Beetle, Green Arrow, Aquaman and countless others will get a chance to uphold justice alongside Batman. Though still based in Gotham, Batman will frequently find himself outside city limits, facing situations that are both unfamiliar and exhilarating. With formidable foes around every corner, Batman will still rely on his stealth, resourcefulness and limitless supply of cool gadgets to bring justice home.
The series adopts the look and feel of the more innocent comic books of the golden-silver age, but makes use of characters and characterisations from the general history of comics. The tone is mostly comedic and adventurous, but can have many moments of generally heartfelt drama. The series is not, strictly speaking, a kid’s series but a family series, intended for viewers of all ages who enjoy superhero culture.
The series is very notable for mixing multiple storytelling and cinema genres, styles, motifs and wide-ranging cast of characters. It was not uncommon for Batman or someone else, to end up in the fabled city of Atlantis in one episode, then turn up in an alternate dimension in another, only to end up teaming up with Sherlock Holmes and Dr John Watson in another.
Although Batman’s regular look in this series is that of the Dick Sprang era of the 50s, many of his other incarnations appear at least once throughout the show’s entire run. These include his vampiric version from the “Crimson Mist” graphic novel, his hardboiled version from Frank Miller’s “The Dark Knight Returns” and even George Clooney’s portrayal from “Batman & Robin” (1997).
In the episode “The Legends of the Bat-Mite”, during the 5th demensional comic con, one of the cosplayers in the front row is seen wearing a Christian Bale Batman/ The Dark Knight Trilogy Suit. As well as another person in a red hood outfit.
