Batman: Caped Crusader has now found a new home on Amazon for two seasons. Originally the new animated series about the world’s greatest detective was supposed to launch on HBO Max, but the situation has changed since.
In the middle of their massive cost-cutting round over the last year, Warner Bros. Discovery scrapped the show. Fans were left in the lurch about if it would launch, but the series gathered massive interest.
Netflix, Apple, and Hulu all looked into the animated series before deciding if they would bring it onto their site. With Amazon picking up the series, the show will see executive producers J.J. Abrams and Matt Reeves come together.
The two are already familiar with one another from previously working on Felicity, as well as the frightening, 10 Cloverfield Lane. Amazon managed to get the new Batman show, as a result of Warner Bros. Discovery’s efforts to monetize their content by selling their projects to others.
They have placed an order for two seasons.
What will Batman: Caped Crusader be about?
Batman: Caped Crusader will be focusing on the “noir roots” of the famous superhero. Matt Reeves’ The Batman movie already took a look at what fans can expect from the show, with the movie focusing on the detective work by the tragic superhero.
Abrams and Reeves also released a statement about what fans could expect.
"“We are beyond excited to be working together to bring this character back, to tell engrossing new stories in Gotham City. The series will be thrilling, cinematic and evocative of Batman’s noir roots, while diving deeper into the psychology of these iconic characters. We cannot wait to share this new world.”"
The two directors will be working with the animated universe veteran, Bruce Timm, on the project. Timm is an expert from the world of Batman, as he was the writer, executive producer, developer, and showrunner for the 1992-95 Batman: The Animated Series.
He was also the one who was in charge for Superman: The Animated Series, The New Batman Adventures, Justice League, Batman Beyond, Justice League Unlimited, and quite a few others. With his expertise, Abrams and Reeves might be ready to put out an extremely iconic animated show.
