Bruce Timm Says BATMAN: CAPED CRUSADER Will Feature a ‘Weird and Creepy’ Batman Who ‘Weapons Alfred’

Bruce Tim recently spoke with Empire and revealed some exciting new details about his highly anticipated animated series Batman: Caped Crusader.

This series is going to be a complete reimagining of the Batman mythology and it looks like it’s going to be a fantastic show! I like what I’ve seen so far.

Timm explains that this series is set in the very early years of Batman’s crime-fighting career: “Batman is so early in his career that in the first episode he’s still an urban legend.”

He continued saying: “It is not Year One,” referring to the Frank Miller AND David Mazzucchelli Batman source comic. “It’s more like ‘Second Week.'”

Not only will Bruce Wayne be trying to figure out how to become Batman, but this will be a different Batman than the versions we’ve seen before.

Timm explained, “I wanted to make it a little weird and creepy. If you’re stuck in a room with Batman, whether you’re Commissioner Gordon or Barbara Gordon or Renee Montoya, you don’t feel comfortable. You’re like, ‘What is this guy? What is he about?'”

He also revealed that Batman turns Alfred into a weapon in this story: “He turns Alfred into a weapon. He’s not Batman’s surrogate father anymore. He’s a guy who’s going to allow Batman to fight crime.

“That’s how focused he is [Bruce] is. It’s a strange interpretation of him. But it’s something I don’t think we’ve ever seen before.”

It’s going to be a really interesting show to watch and I can’t wait!

The series description reads: “Welcome to Gotham City, where the corrupt outnumber the good, criminals are rampant, and law-abiding citizens live in a constant state of fear.

“Forged in the fires of tragedy, wealthy socialite Bruce Wayne becomes something more and less than human: BATMAN. His single-handed crusade for justice attracts unexpected allies within the GCPD and City Hall, but his heroic actions have deadly and unforeseen ramifications.”

The cast includes Hamish Linklater (Midnight snack) like Batman, Christina Ricci like Selina Kyle / Catwoman, My Friend Jamie Chung is Dr. Harleen Quinzel/Harley Quinn, and former voice actress of Batman Diedrich Bader will play Harvey Dent / Two-Face.

Other cast members include Minnie the driver, Eric Morgan Stuart, Michelle C. Bonilla, Krystal Joy Brown, John DiMaggio, Grace McKenna, Written by Jason Watkins, Paul Scheer, Answers, by Gary Anthony Williams, Dan Donohue, David Krumholtz, Haley Joel OsmentAND Toby Stephen.

This animated series has been in development for some time with Timm, The World of JJ Abrams, Mattia Reevesand comic book writer And Brubaker leading the charge.

Batman: Caped Crusader will debut on Prime Video on August 1st.
