J.J. Abrams and Matt Reeves’ animated series “Batman: Caped Crusader” has been picked up at Amazon.
Amazon has placed a two-season order for the cartoon, which is described as “a reimagining of the Batman mythology through the visionary lens” of executive producers Abrams, Reeves and Bruce Timm.
“Batman: Caped Crusader” was ordered to series at HBO Max in May 2021 but in August 2022 the show was scrapped.
“Batman: Caped Crusader” is to build on “Batman: The Animated Series,” which was co-created by Timm and aired on Fox Kids for 85 episodes from 1992-1995.
According to the show’s logline: “Utilizing state-of-the-art animation techniques, this powerful creative partnership will 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.”
