    Holy ****.

    I had been wondering about things on the writing side. All we had to go on so far is the writer of The Last of Us.

    I'm so hyped! There's so much talent involved with this thing, and I love the early concept art too. Can't wait to see what the cast looks like! I'm expecting Conroy to return.

    The Brubaker news coupled with that concept art is totally sending me right now.

    Ten episodes ain't enough though.

    That’s my only criticism. Seems like a bit of a wait for only ten episodes. At least give us 13-15. We’re STARVING.

    Looks beautiful. Can't wait to see if the animation delivers. The fact that it's only ten episodes for the season hopefully means they can probably pour more resources into each episode.

    Based on the Golden Age character design and the period setting, I’m interested to see if the show only slowly rolls out the classic rogues gallery and instead has Bats mainly going up against the likes of the Mad Monk and Hugo Strange.

    This is very near the top of my list of most anticipated superhero films/shows. Can’t wait.

    That concept art is glorious as well. I couldn't be more hyped for this show. Hopefully those 10 episodes will be the first of many more...

    I'm curious, do you guy think this show will be marketed as a spiritual prequel to Batman TAS or no? They seemed to have done that at DCfandome, but I'm unsure if they'll continue to do so.

    They definitely aren't marketing it as a prequel, but are most certainly claiming it as a spiritual successor to Batman: The Animated Series, in terms of tone and approach. Heck, they can't put out a piece of news about the show without mentioning B:TAS in there somewhere (''Hey aging millennials! Remember that show you loved? Well this is just like that, but different!!). Promoting it with clips from the show, using Shirley Walker's music and using the iconic font for the title and introducing the talking heads bit at DC Fandome.

    This is most certainly a vague reboot/reimagining of B:TAS. An ''Elseworlds - Batman: The Animated Series'' if you like. Some people involved with the show have even acknowledged it as such (WB Animation careers used the BTAS hashtag when promoting it on their instagram).

    I would wager that between the Blu-Ray sales for the show and their desire to get subscribers on HBO Max, WB Animation approached Bruce Timm about doing a proper continuation of the old show. Rather than risk competing with himself in such a direct way, this was his counter offer.

    A little more information from Ed Brubaker's newsletter (might be worth signing up to as he could throw out little tidbits over the course of production):

    Lordy, how many producers does this show have?

    it'd be amazing if this had a big budget. stuff like into the Spiderverse and arcane hell invincible(less budget I believe) show there is potential for a breakout.

    With a period setting and a pulpy feel, I wonder if the creative team might have decided to revisit one of BTAS’s key inspirations while they were cooking this new series up…

    Oh yes. I was just thinking how cool it would be if this had the look and feel of the Superman Fleischer shorts :wow: Some of the most beautiful animation I've seen.

    BTW, they've said that STAS also was naturally inspired a by Fleischer Superman.
