This marks Timm’s return to Batman in an Animated Episodic Television Series since his work on the Emmy Nominated series, Batman the Animated Series, which ran from 1992 to 1995 and spawned an interconnected animated universe that’s still growing to this day. It is described to this day as the Gold Standard in animated Superhero Storytelling.

Three Decades Later, Timm makes his return to Batman’s World and he is bringing some company with him, filmmakers J.J. Abrams and The Batman director Matt Reeves. Utilizing state-of-the-art animation techniques and technology, Batman: Caped Crusader promises to once again reinvent Batman and his super-villains with sophisticated storytelling, nuanced characters, and intense action sequences all set in a visually striking world.
