The theme song for the new show, which hits screens this autumn, will be
performed by the Edge. This is not the first U2 brush with the Dark Knight.
According to Warner Bros, 'The new series picks up Batman's story in year
three: in his mid-twenties, just finding his way as protector, defender and
Caped Crusader, while balancing his public persona as billionaire bachelor
Bruce Wayne. Living in Gotham, a metropolis where shadows run long and
deep, beneath elevated train tracks and within a 150-year-old drainage
system, this younger Batman will confront updated takes of familiar foes --
meeting each member of his classic Rogue's Gallery for the first time. From
the likes of Joker, Penguin, Catwoman, Mr. Freeze, Riddler and Man-Bat,
among others, the war on crime jumps to the next level with a new arsenal at
the Dark Knight's disposal, all operated and linked by an advanced
remote-controlled invention he dubs the "Bat-Wave."
