90’s Cult Show Gets Epic Sequel from Matt Reeves & J.J. Abrams! Must-Watch!

The animated series “Batman,” produced by Matt Reeves and J.J. Abrams, will premiere exclusively on Prime Video on August 1st.

Long before superheroes became a cinema staple, DC Comics enthusiasts could indulge in the adventures of their favorite justice fighters through animated series from the early 90s. Among the most iconic productions of that era, Batman: The Animated Series held a central position in what was known as the DC Animated Universe.

The inaugural DC Comics multiverse

Produced following the success of Tim Burton’s film, Batman: The Animated Series was not a sequel to the big-screen feature. The show borrowed film noir elements to create its own mythology of the Dark Knight, as well as the origins of his most notorious enemies.

The series also introduced new characters, notably Harley Quinn, who is now a quintessential antagonist in the DC Comics universe. Besides its aesthetic appeal and excellent storytelling, the series gained fame for its legendary opening theme, scored by Danny Elfman (with the soundtrack by Shirley Walker).

The opening theme of the 1992 series:

A huge ratings success, Batman: The Animated Series inspired several more or less direct sequels, including The New Batman Adventures and Batman: Beyond in 1999. Over thirty years after its first broadcast, the show is set to continue through the new animated series Batman: Caped Crusader, coming to Prime Video.

The role of the original series’ creator in this new project

This cartoon will be exclusively aired on Amazon’s streaming service, even though the project was originally meant for the Max platform. This direct sequel to the 1992 series is produced by J.J. Abrams and Matt Reeves (the director of the Batman film franchise). Bruce Timm, the creator of the original series, is credited as an executive producer on this new production.

The voice cast for the series has not yet been unveiled. The role of Batman is highly anticipated, especially as the chosen actor will have the huge task of following the beloved Kevin Conroy. In the French version, the iconic Richard Darbois voiced the Dark Knight in the previous series.

Batman: Caped Crusader (ten episodes, with a second season already greenlit) will be exclusively available on Prime Video from August 1st.
