DC Entertainment have announced Beware the Batman.

The new CG television show will debut on Cartoon Network in 2013, reports Spinoff.

The show will feature the heroine Katana as Batman's sidekick, alongside a gun-wielding Alfred Pennyworth and a new roster of villains including Grant Morrison's recently created Professor Pyg.

"Katana is gonna be his new Robin, but not necessarily," executive vice president for creative affairs at Warner Bros Animation Sam Register said.

"We went in deeper into the villain library and pulled out some other villains," he added during a speech at the MIP Junior conference in Cannes, France. "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."

Beware the Batman will join Young Justice and Green Lantern: The Animated Series in Cartoon Network's DC Nation programming block, alongside some newly announced shorts featuring Plastic Man, Doom Patrol, Batgirl, Supergirl and Wonder Girl.
