Via ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY, the new animated Batman TV series BATMAN: CAPED CRUSADER will debut August 1st on Amazon Prime.  Here are a few stills from the series featuring its take on Commissioner Gordon, Bruce Wayne, Catwoman, Harley Quinn, Clayface, and The Batman…

The EW article also features a short interview with showrunners Bruce Timm and James Tucker and here are a few highlights…

  • It’s a period piece set in the 1940s with no cell phones or computers.
  • Dr. Harleen Quinzel is Asian-American and her alter-ego Harley Quinn exists before The Joker.
  • The deaths of his parents don’t torture Bruce Wayne, but he is still messed up by it and is “weird.”

Clayface is based on the original Basi Karlo version of the character and is not a shape-shifting pile of mud.  Keep in mind that Matt Reeves is an executive producer on this series (THE BATMAN: PART II? Hmm…).

I’m very excited about this new Batman animated series and will be reviewing each episode here on BOF.  For the full story, CLICK HERE or on any of the other links provided. – Bill “Jett” Ramey
