HBO Max’s Scrapped BATMAN: CAPED CRUSADER Series Moves to Amazon

It’s been a bit of a wild west in the streaming world recently. Streamers have been canceling shows and movies left and right, even ones that are ready to go. In the world of HBO Max, animated shows got hit extra hard, though live-action series weren’t exempt from the culling either. This is why we’ll take good news where we can get it. After a cancellation at HBO Max, J.J. Abrams, Matt Reeves, and Bruce Timm’s Batman: Caped Crusader series has found a new home at Amazon.

And, even more exciting, per The Hollywood Reporter, the Batman series has received a two-season order, ensuring we’ll get a ton of the Caped Crusader to enjoy. There are certainly some powerful minds working on the show. Ed Brubaker is even on the creative team. So we can imagine it will turn out pretty well.

As DC consolidates its on-screen universe under James Gunn and Peter Safran, it’s interesting to see some of its Elseworlds projects end up outside the main Warner Bros. Discovery hubs. Whether that’s a good move or not is yet to be determined.
