In the latest of the HBO Max cuts, Batman: Caped Crusader is no more.

The animated series was meant to be a reimagining of the Batman mythology that would “reinvent Batman and his iconic rogue’s gallery with sophisticated storytelling, nuanced characters and intense action sequences all set in a visually striking world.” TVLine reported the cancellation.

The series had an impressive lineup of executive producers, including Bruce Timm of Batman: The Animated Series, prolific TV producer J.J. Abrams, Matt Reeves (Robert Pattinson’s The Batman), and Ed Brubaker.

Batman: Caped Crusader was among six animated HBO Max/Cartoon Network joint projects that received the axe. The others include Merry Little Batman, The Day the Earth Blew Up: A Looney Tunes Movie, Bye Bye Bunny: A Looney Tunes Musical, Did I Do That to the Holidays: A Steve Urkel Story, and The Amazing World of Gumball: The Movie.

Reportedly, though the projects are no longer being produced for HBO Max, production will continue as they are shopped to other outlets. So hopefully, fans will still get to see Batman: Caped Crusader somewhere… just not on HBO Max.
