'BEWARE THE BATMAN' Producer Discusses Character Selection

"Beware the Batman" producer Glen Murakami talks about trying to not repeat what came before in "Batman: The Animated Series" at San Diego Comic-Con (SDCC). Some nice insight is provided here about how the show formed and why certain character were selected over others.




Murakami also discusses how the show seeks to keep the new villains from looking like carbon copies of Batman's more traditional rogue's gallery, i.e. keeping Cluemaster from being a poor man's Riddler or Magpie from being a Poison Ivy knockoff. There's a lot more insight from Glen in the video above about some of the behind-the-scenes decision-making on the show. Be sure to tune in tomorrow for an all new episode which contains the debut of the season's main villain, Anarky.
