The first teaser poster for Prime Video's Batman: Caped Crusader has been released today (via and it features the show's Dark Knight keeping a watchful eye over 1940s Gotham City. 

It's a striking piece of imagery and that's fitting for a take on Batman which draws inspiration from the hero's earliest comic book adventures. With any luck, this means we're getting a teaser trailer sooner rather than later as the long-delayed show's August premiere is fast approaching. 

Original plans called for Batman: Caped Crusader to premiere on Max, but a series of cost-cutting measures by Warner Bros. Discovery CEO David Zaslav saw it offloaded - along with a handful of other animated projects, including Merry Little Batman - to Amazon. 

The series will see Bruce Timm (Batman: The Animated Series) and James Tucker (Batman: The Brave and the Bold) collaborate for a series which will put a very different spin on its titular Caped Crusader. 

"I’m a huge film noir fan, and that’s pretty much what we do exclusively in this," Tucker recently said of the series which takes place in the 1940s. "It’s such a period piece. I mean, I’ve done all kinds of Batman. I’ve worked on shows with different takes on Batman. No one has quite done this one for animation yet."

Timm, meanwhile, saw the chance to take Batman down a darker path and jumped at it. "There were certain things that I had in my mind back in the early ’90s for the original Batman: The Animated Series that I didn’t get to do," he explained. "I wanted to do this emotionally messed-up version of Batman, who’s extremely aloof and almost inhuman."

Despite that, Batman: Caped Crusader will not be TV-MA. As Timm put it, "We are aiming this show at the same age group that watches Harry Potter movies or Marvel movies."

Confirmed Batman: Caped Crusader cast members include Midnight Mass star Hamish Linklater as Bruce Wayne/Batman, Jamie Chung (Sucker Punch) as Harley Quinn, Christina Ricci (Wednesday) as Catwoman, and Diedrich Bader (The Drew Carey Show) as Harvey Dent. 

Other actors lending their voices to the series in currently undisclosed roles include Minnie Driver, Eric Morgan Stuart, Michelle C. Bonilla, Krystal Joy Brown, John DiMaggio, McKenna Grace, Jason Watkins, Paul Scheer, Reid Scott, Gary Anthony Williams, Dan Donohue, David Krumholtz, Haley Joel Osment, and Toby Stephens.

Batman: Caped Crusader premieres on Prime Video on August 1.

Bruce Timm should have been in charge of the new DCU decades ago. It's not the animation, but the dude tells very deep stories through Batman: TAS, Superman: TAS, Batman Beyond, The Justice League, Static Shock, the all so-most-important Justice League Unlimited series, and the very highly regarded Green Lantern CGI series that literally had me weeping in the last episode. (not sure if Bruce was part of Teen Titans, Legion of Superheroes, or Young Avengers). Either way,
Bruce Timm could have been the "DCU Jesus!"

@lazlodaytona - What Gunn and Timm have in common, besides double letters at the end of their names, is their deep knowledge and respect of the source material. If it can't be Timm, Gunn is the next best thing.

@Th3Batman - i believe you.

but I wouldn't bet on the 'gunn-verse' beating out a bruce timm-verse any day.

It’s been a good year for superhero animation between Invincible and X-Men, this one is about to take the cake

@FireandBlood - I also quite like My Adventures With Superman, and look forward to Creature Commandos too

Dropping all episode in 1 day doesn't seem wise.

But heh, there's a reason it's on Prime, WB ain't wise.

Cool poster!!.

I’m liking what I’m hearing & seeing about the show (especially it being a period noir) so looking forward to it.

Awesome poster, but I'm really worried for this show now after hearing that godawful Batman voice.
