Bruce Timm new cartoon first look
It’s pretty much understood that the great Batman cartoon of all time is the 90s animated series, directed by Bruce Timm and Paul Dini, which formed the cornerstone of the equally excellent DC Animated Universe. So every time Bruce Timm gets his hands on Batman it’s worth checking out â and based on this overview, its Batman: Crusader in a Cloak the cartoon seems worth obsessing about.
Co-created and produced by The batman film director Matt Reeves and a little-known Hollywood producer named JJ Abrams, Batman: Crusader in a Cloak is a reimagining of the Dark Knight looking to get closer to the character’s very first incarnation. Timm called him, “More Batman: The Animated Series than Batman: The Animated Seriesâ, Which means that it will take place in a world with a very 40s aesthetic and very dark. âMy idea is basically, it’s 1990 again and I can do whatever I want to do this time around,â Timm added.
Crusader in hat almost sounds like an original series. The creators pointed out that Batman is on his own: he doesn’t yet have allies like Commissioner Gordon, there aren’t any other heroes, and he doesn’t have all the gimmicks yet. However, as the show unfolds it will begin to develop them with an evolving Batmobile – basically Batman is becoming the dark knight we’re so used to. It syncs with the character’s concept art, of which Bat-cowl’s more authentically bat-long long ears are one indication, which are also located on the side of his head instead of just the top, closely to the original design. of the character. I know that’s a lot to read about the shape and placement of the ears, but these things question to Batman, damn it.
When the show was announced in May, the three co-executive producers issued a joint statement: âWe’re excited to be working together to bring this character back, to tell some compelling new stories in Gotham City. The series will be thrilling, cinematic, and evocative of Batman’s dark roots, while delving deep into the psychology of these iconic characters. We can’t wait to share this new world.
At present, Batman: Crusader in a Cloak is slated to air on both HBO Max and Cartoon Network, so it’s probably going to be at least somewhat kid-friendly – however, the producers have repeatedly pointed out how much of a psychological drama the show is going to be, so who know? We will probably get out of this in 2022.
