The destiny of 5 of these titles remains to be within the air, however a two-season order for Caped Crusader is welcome information after a 12 months that noticed so many high-profile initiatives canceled, and titles faraway from platforms.
Batman: Caped Crusader is produced by Warner Bros. Animation, Abrams’ Dangerous Robotic Productions, and Reeves’ sixth & Idaho. The present is a throwback to the long-lasting 1992-1995 Batman: The Animated Sequence, co-created by Timm.
The present’s logline reads: “Using state-of-the-art animation methods, this highly effective inventive partnership will as soon as once more reinvent Batman and his iconic rogue’s gallery with refined storytelling, nuanced characters, and intense motion sequences all set in a visually putting world.”
Caped Crusader will not be the lone animated DC title on Prime Video for lengthy. One of many first productions introduced by new DC Studios bosses James Gunn and Peter Safran after they took the reins late final 12 months was Creature Commandos, a seven-episode animated collection penned by Gunn. They didn’t point out how that collection could be distributed, however Prime Video appears a possible vacation spot if the present doesn’t go to HBO Max.
Based on Safran, “We now have the flexibility to promote outdoors of HBO Max if that is smart. So we’ll determine if there are particular reveals developing that may be higher served elsewhere, or [if] there’s not actual property on HBO Max for us. However we like the concept of getting reveals on Amazon and Hulu and Netflix. It simply broadens the DC viewers.”
Given each Dungey and Safran’s feedback, it appears possible there could possibly be lots extra DC animated content material headed to Prime Video quickly.
