CAPED CRUSADER: Cancelled BATMAN Animated Series Finds New Home At Prime  Video



The streamer and retail giant has handed out a two-season order for the animated series, which was originally set up at HBO Max.



The animated series hails from Bruce Timm, J.J. Abrams and Matt Reeves and was sold to a streaming rival as part of Warner Bros. Discovery’s efforts to monetize content by selling projects to third-party buyers. Reps for all parties declined to comment as formal deals have not yet closed. Batman: Caped Crusader, first announced in May 2021, is said to harken back to Timm’s 1990s Batman: The Animated Series, which stands as a benchmark for the Dark Knight’s animated storytelling. Comic book scribe Ed Brubaker is among the creative team and ran a writers room and serves as Timm’s right hand on the 10-episode first season.


Abrams and Reeves gave a joint statement when it was first announced back in 21.



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.
