J.J. Abrams Produced ‘Batman: Caped Crusader’ Animated Series Back At Amazon

Billed as a “spiritual successor” to ‘Batman: The Animated Series,’ the J.J. Abrams’ ‘Batman: Caped Crusader’ was canceled at HBO Max following a slashing of content from the streaming service’s library. However, it is being reported that the Batman series is back in business with a new home at Amazon.

‘Batman: Caped Crusader has found a new home at Amazon,” The Hollywood Reporter said in an article. “The streamer and retail giant has handed out a two-season order for the animated series, which was originally set up at HBO Max. Caped Crusader landed at the Jennifer Salke-led streamer following Warner Bros. Animation parent company Warner Bros. Discovery scrapping the show in August — more than a year after it was ordered straight to series — amid a round of cost-cutting. Other streamers, including Netflix, Apple and Hulu, also kicked the tires on the project that marks a reunion for executive producers J.J. Abrams and Matt Reeves, who previously collaborated on The WB Network’s beloved Felicity.”

Bruce Timm, a Warner Animation Studio veteran who had famously worked on ‘Batman: TAS,’ was collaborating with Abrams and Reeves on the production of the animated show. Award-winning comic book writer Ed Brubaker, who has written for DC Comics and Marvel Entertainment, is a part of the show’s team and will work on all ten episodes of the first season.

No release date has been confirmed nor has any cast or crew been revealed outside of Timm, Reeves, and Abrams. There has been no casting announcement at this time.

The recently passed Batman voice actor Kevin Conroy (Batman: TAS, The Killing Joke, Justice League Unlimited) was rumored to be in talks to return to the cowl for this series. Following his tragic death, it has not been confirmed who would will take on the identity of Bruce Wayne and his masked alter ego.
