“Batman: The Brave and The Bold” Aimed At Younger Viewers

Bruce Timm confirmed over the weekend during WizardWorld that Batman: The Brave and The Bold will be skewering for a much younger demographic when the series premieres in early 2009. The show is slated to skew young and will also be appropriate for the preschoolers market. Characters scheduled to appear alongside Batman include Green Arrow, Green Lantern, The Blue Beetle, Plastic Man, Red Tornado, Aquaman, and more.

An entire toy line for the series will debut from Mattel in spring 2009, around the same time as the show’s premiere. The show has been approved for 26 episodes, with the option for another pick-up.

Stay tuned for further updates.
