The Flash Strikes!

It has been confirmed that the Flash will be guest-starring in "The Joining," the season finale of The Batman on the CW's Kids' WB! No airdate has been set yet for the two-part episode. The Superman Homepage has also reported that a fifth season of the animated series is currently in production at Warner Bros. Animation. The new season will follow the upcoming finale by delivering regular guest appearances from Flash, Superman, Aquaman, the Martian Manhunter, and others as the Dark Knight's connection with the Justice League will become a focus of the show's stories. I have to say that I'm looking forward to this as The Batman has proven itself of late with a number of exciting installments and some strong storytelling. I will, of course, be posting artwork and airdates as they become available.

I'm no fan of The Batman, but this does sound interesting.

I'm also surprised they're calling that the CW's Kids' WB!

Why not go all the way with the name-change? *shrugs*

I suppose the name--Kids WB!--has stuck because the shows it represents are still the product of Warner Bros. Animation, regardless of the fact that the network has merged.

As for The Batman, it's grown on me. I never cared for the program during its early years and never watched it. The premiere of Legion of Superheroes and the introduction of Robin prompted me to give it another chance, and I'm glad I did. I can't wait to see their take on the fastest man alive.
