Batman: The Brave and The Bold

Ben Jones On Upcoming “Batman: The Brave and The Bold” Animated Series

“I wouldnt mind trying to allay some of the fears expressed on various message boards,” Batman: The Brave and The Bold director Ben Jones told The World’s Finest. “First, there will be an element of comedy, but that doesnt mean that were skimping on the action.

“Were trying as hard as we can to make sure the action will be as amazing and exciting as any previous incarnation of the Batman,” he added.

Jones wanted to assure fans that the series won’t be making fun of Batman, but will instead tell stories about him in a slightly lighter style.

“Character-wise, Batman is still the same gruff perfectionist that hes been for the last twenty-five or so years,” says Jones. “Everyone here is a Batman fan too, so we want to do right by him.”

While he doesn’t want to spill any specific details just yet, Jones says that fans will be excited about both the approach the show will take and vast amount of characters that will be appearing.

“Im excited about what were doing on the show,” says Jones. “The geek in me wants to spend all day going on and on about how cool it is to have certain characters or actors in the show, or some of the cool stories were doing.”
