Batman Caped Crusader, an animated series from executive producers Bruce Timm, J.J. Abrams and Matt Reeves, received a straight to series order from HBO Max and Cartoon Network.
My Adventures With Superman, with Jack Quaid voicing Superman/Clark Kent, has landed a two-season order at HBO Max and Cartoon Network.
According to Deadline, the new Batman animated series is produced by Warner Bros. Animation, Bad Robot Productions and 6th & Idaho and marks Batman The Animated Series producer Timm’s return to Batman in animated episodic series.
Executive Producers Bruce Timm, J.J. Abrams and Matt Reeves said:
“We are beyond excited to be working together to bring this character back, to tell engrossing new stories in Gotham City.
The series will be thrilling, cinematic and evocative of Batman’s noir roots while diving deeper into the psychology of these iconic characters.
We cannot wait to share this new world.”
Produced by Warner Bros. Animation and based on characters from DC (via Deadline), My Adventures With Superman follows the adventures of Superman and Lois Lane. The animated series features twenty-somethings Clark Kent, the bright and driven Lois Lane (Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist actress Alice Lee), and their best friend Jimmy Olsen as they begin to discover who they are and everything they can accomplish together as an investigative reporting team at the Daily Planet.
My Adventures With Superman follows Clark as he builds his secret Superman identity and embraces his role as the hero of Metropolis – and perhaps the world. Lois, now growing into a star investigative journalist, takes aspiring photographer Jimmy Olsen under her wing. All the while, Clark and Lois are falling in love, sharing adventures, taking down bad guys, stumbling over secrets, and discovering what it means to be Superman and Lois Lane.
Warner Bros. Animation and Cartoon Network Studios President Sam Register said:
“It’s been a great partnership working with Cartoon Network and HBO Max to bring more DC Super Heroes to the platform in new and creatively interesting ways.
This is the first animated Superman series in many years and we want to tell our Superman story through the trio of Clark, Lois and Jimmy – whose relationship dynamic will allow for rich, serialized and engaging stories as we explore their lives as individuals and their journey together as friends.”
