Batman: Caped Crusader is set to premiere on Prime Video on August 1. The new animated series, helmed by executive producers J.J. Abrams, Matt Reeves, and Bruce Timm, aims to be a spiritual successor to the beloved Batman: The Animated Series. Originally scrapped by HBO Max, the show was picked up by Prime Video and will release all ten episodes at once. The series promises a fresh narrative and revamped visuals, distinct from previous Batman projects, while still offering a nostalgic feel. The story centers on Bruce Wayne's transformation into Batman and his crusade in a corrupt Gotham City.

Who will voice Batman in Batman: Caped Crusader?

Hamish Linklater will voice Batman in Batman: Caped Crusader, taking over from the late Kevin Conroy.

Batman: The Animated Series, which aired from 1992 to 1995, is widely considered one of the greatest animated series of all time. Featuring a darker, more mature take on Batman, it contributed significantly to the character's modern portrayal, establishing iconic elements still relevant today. Bruce Timm, a key figure in the original series, brings his extensive expertise to Batman: Caped Crusader, ensuring it honors its predecessor while carving out new creative territory.
