    This is what they do best, animation. Or at least what they used to do best. Hopefully with Abrams and Reeves attached, the budget for this will be similar to what BTAS got, or perhaps even higher. Quality animation, voice actors and please please please, use an orchestra. You can’t replace Shirley, but an orchestra based score is better than whatever we get these days.

    This is going to be so good. I can never have enough of Noir Batman. The producer's lineup is insane.

    This is awesome news. I remember a few months back there were rumors that WB was planning on doing another season of Batman: TAS. Guessing this was what the rumors were about. I'm somehow more excited for this than I was at the prospect of there being more B: TAS. And if that still is representative of what the animation will look like, it's probably the best animated style for Batman since the original TAS run.

    With Matt Reeves involved I wonder if this will take place in his universe or if it's going to be similar to TAS where you have a lot of loose superficial ties (Penguin's hands, Selina having blonde hair, occasional music cues, etc.) but otherwise is in it's own continuity.

    So, Bruce Timm going back to something that made him a household name, and J.J. Abrams and Matt Reeves going back to television. Full circle.

    Sorry if I’m not jumping for joy, but I’d be more interested in Bruce Timm’s involvement if it wasn’t for his last few lackluster projects he’s worked on and his creepy fascination with his Bruce/Barbara fetish, and Paul Dini helping him out. Dini, I think, was really the one that brought the creative energy and executed Timm’s ideas to their best potential. Without him, I’m not as confident in this. Nowadays, Timm’s more miss than hit.

    We’ll see how it goes. I want to see who is involved in writing and directing this thing first before I get super exited for this. Matt Reeves being involved is the only thing keeping me interested in this.

    Time will tell if this will be a successful animated series or flatline like Beware The Batman.

    The last good Batman series post Batman: The Animated Series is Batman: The brave and the Bold .

    Reeves and Bruce Timm together is something I never could have imagine, and yet it's perfect. This is a new era for Batman, and it's clear WB is very confident in it.

    Get Paul Dini on the writing team and I’ll be more of a happy camper than I am already.

    Let’s recap how many Batman animated cartoons their have been since the beginning of the characters debut. (Not counting Superfriends ,Justice League and Young Justice )

    1.The Adventures Of Batman (1968)
    2.
    The New Adventures Of Batman (1977)
    3. Batman: The Animated Series (1992)
    4. The New Batman Adventures (1997)
    5. Batman Beyond (1999)
    6. The Batman (2005)
    7. Batman: The Brave And The Bold (2008)
    8. Beware The Batman (2013)
    9. Batman Unlimited (2015)
    10. Batman: Caped Crusader (2022)


    The Dark Knight had a lengthy period in animation some highly successful and others not so much. That’s pretty impressive for DC’s number 2 hero behind Superman.

    Animation looks good. Too bad JJ Abrams is involved. I might give this a shot.

    JJ as a producer is not a bad thing at all. And this is his first venture into animation as far as I know.

    I dislike most things he has done. Not a big fan of Reeves either. I Love Bruce Timm as a artist/designer, but have not been impressed with anything he has done in years.
