Batman: Caped Crusader is now headed to Prime Video. The streaming service has ordered two seasons of the animated series, per Deadline. Other online outlets, including Netflix, Apple, and Hulu, considered picking up the show.
The series was initially set for HBO Max, but that streaming service cancelled the series plans as part of cost-cutting efforts following the Warner Bros. Discovery merger. The show’s move to Prime Video is part of the company’s strategy to monetize content by selling it to outside outlets.
Bruce Timm (Batman: The Animated Series), J.J. Abrams (Duster), and Matt Reeves (The Batman movie) are behind the series, which will harken back to Timm’s iconic series. Comic book writer Ed Brubaker is among the creative team and serves as Timm’s right-hand man on the 10-episode first season. This marks a reunion of Abrams and Reeves, who previously worked together on Felicity.
A premiere date for Batman: Caped Crusader will be announced later.
What do you think? Are you excited to see this new animated series on the small screen?
Genre of the theme is coming to an end thank goodness!
This is fabulous news maybe prime can get the cancelled Scooby Doo and the mystery pups one also that hbo cancelled it is for pre schoolers I think.
Luckily that one is not dead in the water so there is hope for the kids. Just too bad we won’t see the other ones that were cancelled. Well… Except Scooby-Doo! and Krypto too! (great movie) maybe it will be released since it was leaked and not gone from the Internet forever.
I also hope this Batman series will be good. Don’t have much faith in Amazon.
