BATMAN: CAPED CRUSADER - Netflix, Hulu, Apple & More Have Shown Interest In Picking Up The Animated Series

While Batman: Caped Crusader is no longer moving forward on HBO Max, the animated series is being shopped around to other platforms, and several major streaming services have already shown interest.

We recently learned that Matt Reeves, J.J. Abrams, Ed Brubaker and Bruce Timm's Batman: Caped Crusader, along with several other animated projects, is no longer being developed for HBO Max, but the series is still very much alive, and some major platforms have already shown interest in picking it up.

According to THR, the decision had nothing to do with the quality of the shows, and instead came down to "an economic and strategic issue." Basically, Warner Bros. Discovery believes it will make more money on the titles by selling them to other outlets.

We didn't expect an update on Caped Crusader's status so soon, but the trade reports that the show has received "intense interest" from Apple, Hulu and Netflix, among others.

No word on Merry Little Batman, The Day the Earth Blew Up: A Looney Toons Movie, Bye Bye Bunny: A Looney Toons Musical, Did I Do That to the Holidays: A Steve Urkel Story and The Amazing World of Gumball: The Movie, but they are all still said to be "in various stages of development."

Details on The Dark Knight's 10-episode animated series are few and far between, but it is expected to be inspired by the classic '90s Batman: The Animated Series, even though it won't be a direct continuation. The goal of the show is to “once again reinvent Batman and his iconic rogue’s gallery with sophisticated storytelling, nuanced characters and intense action sequences all set in a visually striking world.”

It's a shame we'll probably have to wait a little longer to see Caped Crusader than we would have if it was still heading to HBO Max, but this is definitely an encouraging sign.
