What Could Have Been: Another Denied Bat-Cartoon

Earlier this year we brought you images of a pitched Batman animated show that didn't just make it. Well it seems that a little while ago, there was another version pitched that may have been for the upcoming James Tucker produced Batman show. Artist Coran Zone posted this info on a shot he got to design the new show:


So James the Terrifically talented Tucker producer of “The Brave and Bold” series was starting work on the new Bat show and decided to take a chance on the new guy….Me! So I became character designer. I was floored as shit and had a ton of ideas for the darknight and fellers so I spent about 4 or 5 monthes cranking out a ton of of batty shizz! I did way more than any man should ever do and worked sometimes two nights straight without sleep on that stuff.

This is the sucky part> Even though all of the heads at Cartoon Network liked the designs one felt the premise (more of a “no mans land”) was too dark and grim so they scrapped it


So what do you think of this design?

    Very interesting…seems really ninja inspired. Points for almost being the first show to feature Cassandra Cain!

    • Well, she did have that uncredited cameo in Justice League. Nothing special though. I would love to see her on a show though. Actually any show that introduces more of the Bat-family I would be behind.
