Last year, we learned that
HBO Max would no longer stream the Batman: Caped Crusader animated series, prompting Bruce Timm, J.J. Abrams, and Matt Reeves to take the show on the road and pitch it to other streamers.
Like Batgirl, it appears Warner Bros. boss David Zaslav didn't view the show as a major draw for subscribers. While that movie was scrapped, never to see the light of day, the executive would at least rather earn money from another platform buying this Batman animated series from them.
For a time, it appeared as if that might be it for Timm's long-awaited return to the DC Animated Universe, but Amazon Prime Video picked the show up for at least two seasons, adding Merry Little Batman and Bat-Family to its slate at the same time.
Now, a new look at all three of those has been revealed (via Toonado.com).
If what we see below is any indication, Batman: Caped Crusader will utilise a CG animation style that's in the vein of Batman: The Animated Series. It's great to see a new shot of the Dark Knight leaping into action and it looks very much in line what that classic TV show (unfortunately, we don't expect it to take place in the same reality).
DC Studios is creating its own slate of animated in-continuity projects for Max, so the fact this show is heading to Prime Video hopefully means it will be left free to continue beyond these first two seasons should it prove to be a success.
There's currently no word on a premiere date for the animated series, though it has been confirmed that the first season will consist of 10 episodes.
Take a closer look at these DC animated TV shows below.
