‘Batman: Caped Crusader’ animated series finds new home at Amazon Prime

Batman: Caped Crusader has found a new home at Amazon Prime, having been given a two-series order.

The animated series hails from Bruce TimmJJ Abrams and Matt Reeves and was sold to a streaming rival as part of Warner Bros. Discovery’s efforts to monetize content by selling projects to third-party buyers.

Batman: Caped Crusader was first announced in May 2021, and is said to harken back to Timm’s 1990s Batman: The Animated Series, which stands as a benchmark for the Dark Knight’s animated storytelling. Comic book scribe Ed Brubaker is among the creative team and ran a writer’s room and serves as Timm’s right hand on the 10-episode first season.

The show’s move comes after DC Studios bosses James Gunn and Peter Safran, who Warner Bros. Discovery CEO David Zaslav hired late last year, seek to bring order to DC’s properties. The duo are plotting a 10-year plan to tell a unified story across film, TV, gaming and animation, though certain projects will fall outside of that realm. Those include Reeves’ The Batman Part II and HBO Max spinoff series The Penguin, and, naturally, fare liked Caped Crusader that is distributed outside of the company.

Caped Crusader‘s move to Amazon comes after Zaslav revealed his film studio would develop more Lord of the Rings movies. Amazon, coincidentally, controls the TV rights to the Lord of the Rings franchise, and now will count Warners’ Batman as part of its service.
