DC fans were floored this morning when a. At the WarnerMedia Upfronts presentation this Wednesday, it was revealed that is on the way, an animated effort coming from the minds of three top creators – Batman: The Animated Series guru Bruce Timm, The Batman director Matt Reeves and J.J. Abrams. And from what we’ve seen so far, it looks like a dream project for Dark Knight lovers.
As you’d expect, the internet is losing it over the news, with Batman continuing to trend on social media hours after the announcement. Just about everyone is loving the concept of Caped Crusader, both for its BTAS continuation vibes and its triple decker of talent behind the scenes. We knew HBO Max was cooking something up, but this is beyond anything we were expecting and here are just a few of the reactions going around on Twitter.

So that BATMAN: CAPED CRUSADER news is cool. Gotta be a little suspicious of Abrams, but hey, benefit of the doubt I guess.

a “reimagining of the batman mythology” means there’s gonna be old characters who are now POC and it’s gonna incredibly piss off the fan boy incels and Fox News “pundits” and it’s going to be absolutely wonderful 🙌🏼

Weird to think it’s been that long.
The last proper Batman animated tv series was 'Beware The Batman' in 2013 so I'm excited by the fact that we're getting a new one after so long

Matt Reeves is the king of Gotham.
Hiring Matt Reeves and giving him total creative control with the Batman IP is the single best decision Warner has made in the last five years.
• THE BATMAN film trilogy
• BATMAN: THE CAPED CRUSADER animated series
• GOTHAM CENTRAL live-action series

Ben Affleck in The Flash. Robert Pattinson’s The Batman. The Gotham Knights video game. And now Caped Crusaders. All that’s coming our way next year.
2022 is gonna be a good year for Batman!

In a join statement, Timm, Reeves and Abrams wrote that they’re “beyond excited” to be teaming up to make this series, promising “engrossing new stories set in Gotham City.” Caped Crusaders will be ” thrilling, cinematic and evocative of Batman’s noir roots, while diving deeper into the psychology of these iconic characters.”
As is clear from these tweets, Batman: Caped Crusader is now one of the most highly anticipated upcoming DC productions, so there’s a lot of pressure on its trinity of creators to really pull off something special when it arrives on HBO Max sometime in 2022.
