Tom Ascheim, President, Warner Bros. Global Kids, Young Adults and Classics (GKYAC) and Sam Register, President, Warner Bros. Animation (WBA) and Cartoon Network Studios (CNS), unveiled the series on Wednesday.
“It is always fun to feed the insatiable appetite fans have for all things Batman. Batman: Caped Crusader will entertain first time and die-hard fans alike and, with such an impressive creative team in place, we know we have another future Batman classic in the making,” Ascheim said.
On one hand, the art looks cool, and I like Bruce Timm. On the other, Timm is only half of what made the original series great. On another, can we get a new take on this character rather than rehashing the Animated Series? If it's good, I'm all for it, but I'm tepidly excited.
