Batman Family Adventures Webtoon Gets Live Action Web Series
Although Wayne Family Adventures, CC and Webtoonweekly comic strip following the adventures of Batman and his unruly children, has only started published online a few weeks ago, the Webtoon-exclusive series quickly gathered the sort of gargantuan readership that mainstream comic book publishers dream of.
Simply put, people read Wayne family adventures, and seemingly loving what the show’s creative team has to offer, which makes the latest startling news really meaningful. As this year’s Batman D partyyes, DC has just been announced (via IGN) living-short film action series adapted from Wayne family adventures which is slated to be produced by Ismahawk and debut on the production house’s YouTube channel. NOTNews of a fully produced live-action adaptation of a weeks-old comic might be surprising, corn DC appears to have been working on the project for quite some time now given that it already has a full cast and it’s just a few days far from the first.
Jonathan Bentley takes the lead Wayne family adventure‘s cast as the titular patriarch of Gotham’s Batfamily who warmly welcomes newcomer Duke Thomas (Du-Shaunt “Fik-Shun “ Stegal), a young metahuman, in their ranks shortly after they began patrolling the city. Bruce’s children, Dick Grayson (Yoshi Sudarso) has the most experience working and being raised by the Dark Knight which is why it is easy for him to see others like Jason Todd (Tim Neff), Tim Drake (Peter Sudarso) and Damian Wayne (Carter Rockwood) like his younger siblings. Like the comic, the Ismahawk series will also include versions of Barbara Gordon (Lisa Foiles), Stéphanie Brown (Meghan Camarena), Cassandra Cain (Gemma Nguyen) and Alfred Pennyworth (Marcus Weiss).
Also similar to the comics, the live-action series will be more comedic than bam, smack, pow, as it focuses more on the interpersonal dynamics of Batfamily during their downtime rather than their superheroes, which which will immediately distinguish it from others Batkid-obsessed projects like HBO Max’s Titans. Whether Ismahawk will continue to broadcast more Wayne family adventures shorts beyond that first trio of episodes will likely depend on how well the videos perform after their mid-October debut. If the comic is any indication, however, Wayne Family Adventures could be DC’s next big thing that takes off unexpectedly.
