Good thing or Bad thing??

I have heard many say that they feel Batman is being over-exposed in terms of animation... and that they want to see other heroes... even Superman.

Batman: The Brave and The Bold is one of many animated Batman projects, and DC Animation projects, currently in the works.

Sources have confirmed for The World's Finest that fans can expect to see many different animated projects focusing on Batman over the next few years. Outside of Batman: The Brave and The Bold, premiering in November 2008, a new solo Batman direct-to-video animated feature is in the works, as well as a possible series based on the upcoming Lego Batman: The Videogame console release. Despite the recent cultural popularity of the comic book icon, it will likely be late-2008 at the earliest before any official announcements will be made on these assorted Batman projects.

Working off the high pre-release buzz, a computer-animated spin-off based on the upcoming Lego Batman: The Videogame console release is currently being developed as a single 20-minute animated program, with the possibility for future installments on a regular basis. Whether this will be a direct-to-video release or a televised or web-based premiere remain to be seen. A specific animation studio has yet to be confirmed and no further details are expected at this time.

Warner Bros. Animation, currently working on the initial 26-episode order of Batman: The Brave and Bold, is also working on the next slate of releases under the DC Universe Animated Original Movie banner. This includes wrapping post-production on Wonder Woman, slated for a February 2009 released, and continuing work on the next two in-production titles in the line, Green Lantern (working title) and Superman/Batman: Public Enemies (working title). Early pre-production work on a direct-to-video solo Batman feature has also begun, with no further details available at this time. The first official confirmation on these upcoming titles is expected either toward the end of 2008 or early 2009.

On a related note, Warner Bros. Animation also continues to work on an online Plastic Man animated series, with a premiere date that is expected to be announced soon.

I think it's a good thing for avid fans. I wish they would can the Brave and the Bold and do a new animated series, that would be great!
