BEWARE The Batman! The New Cartoon Coming in 2013!

Sam Register, head of Cartoon Network, recently gave a speech at the MIP Junior Market Con in Cannes where he revealed that the new Batman cartoon will be titled "Beware the Batman" and see a 2013 release.  Bats will team with a young female sidekick named Katana and a gun-toting Alfred Pennyworth to take on villains like the Joker, Penguin and Professor Pygh.  "We went in deeper into the villain library and pulled out some other villains. We didn’t want to do another Joker story... there’s too many of them. We just needed to do something new, so we’re starting off with new villains".  CBM came across the above preview artwork, so we can see the direction the show is going.  Your thoughts?

Stylewise it looks like a cross between The New Batman Adventures and The Batman. Alfred with guns makes no sense as Batman does not use guns. Nor does Katana make sense in place of Robin, Nightwing or even Batgirl. I think most people would rather have a solo Batman.
