It seems Amazon Prime Video is really keen on Batman these days. Especially in the animation department. How else do you explain Prime Video acquiring not 1, not 2, but 3 new animated series/films starring the Caped Crusader from Warner Bros. Animation?
3 New Batman (Batmen?) Sitting on Your Screen Soon?
Prime Video is proud to announce that they have acquired 3 separate Batman animated media from Warner Bros. Animation. This media will consist of 2 new animated series and an original animated film. In fact, 1 of those animated series will actually be a spinoff of the animated film. I guess this means either Warner Bros. Animation or Prime Video has really high hopes for this animated film. Despite how it looks like the target demographic is younger audiences. At least, judging by the animation style above. Seriously, it looks like a Disney show in terms of style. It has that highly stylized look to it that screams “Disney”. Maybe I’m wrong though, and it’s just the animation style. We’ll just have to see when we see these new series.
Unfortunately, release dates are something we don’t have for these new Batman media. That’s something that will have to come later. Tune back into THS later to find them out when we do.
So what are these new Batman media about? Unfortunately, we only have the image above from Merry Little Batman and its upcoming spinoff Bat-Family as the sole image. However, we do have synopses for all 3 media. Complete with production staff, no less. You can check them all out below:
Batman: Caped Crusader ~ Synopsis
Batman: Caped Crusader is an all-new animated series and reimagining of the Batman mythology through the visionary lens of executive producers Bruce Timm, J.J. Abrams, and Matt Reeves. Utilizing state-of-the-art animation techniques, this powerful creative partnership will once again reinvent the character and his iconic rogue’s gallery with sophisticated storytelling, nuanced characters, and intense action sequences, all set in a visually striking world. In addition to Timm, Abrams, and Reeves, Ed Brubaker and Sam Register are set to executive produce the series. Based on characters from DC, Batman: Caped Crusader is produced by Warner Bros. Animation, Bad Robot Productions, and 6th & Idaho.
Merry Little Batman: Synopsis
Merry Little Batman is an animated family action comedy destined to join the rogue’s gallery of classic holiday movies. When young Damian Wayne finds himself alone in Wayne Manor on Christmas Eve, he must transform into “Little Batman” in order to defend his home and Gotham City from the crooks and supervillains intent on destroying the holidays. Produced by Warner Bros. Animation and based on characters from DC, Merry Little Batman is directed by Mike Roth (Regular Show) from a screenplay by Morgan Evans (Teen Titans Go!). Roth also serves as executive producer, alongside Sam Register.
Following the events of Merry Little Batman, Bat-Family follows Batman, Alfred, and young Damian Wayne—who has now taken on the mantle of Little Batman—alongside a few newcomers to Wayne Manor, as they navigate the fun and frustrations of life as a super family. Jase Ricci, Mike Roth, and Sam Register are set to executive produce the series, which is produced by Warner Bros. Animation.
