Batman: Caped Crusader isn’t coming to HBO Max in spite of everything. The streaming service has cancelled its sequence order for the most recent animated sequence to observe Batman as he protects the residents of Gotham City. This sequence is the most recent casualty of the merger between Warner Bros and Discovery. It is feasible the sequence might be shopped elsewhere.
Per Deadline, the sequence is certainly one of six animated initiatives to be scrapped this week. The cancelled motion pictures/specials are 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.
HBO Max picked up the series in May 2021. Bruce Timm (Batman: The Animated Series), J.J. Abrams, and Matt Reeves have been behind the deliberate reimaging of the Batman mythology. At the time, the trio stated, “We are beyond excited to be working together to bring this character back, to tell engrossing new stories in Gotham City. The series will be thrilling, cinematic and evocative of Batman’s noir roots, while diving deeper into the psychology of these iconic characters. We cannot wait to share this new world.”
What do you think? Were you trying ahead to this new present? Are you hoping one other outlet picks up Batman: Caped Crusader?
