The teaser poster showcasing the artwork model for the sequence appears to again up the darker tone, with a grim-looking Batman (with an old-school pointed ear cowl) staring down at Gotham Metropolis.
On the flip facet of the thematic coin is My Adventures with Superman, which is able to observe the 20-something lives of Clark Kent (Jack Quaid), Lois Lane (Alice Lee), and Jimmy Olsen as they collectively begin their journalism careers, fall in love, and for Clark, begin his burgeoning profession because the Man of Metal.
My Adventures with Superman has already been ordered for 2 seasons and will probably be govt produced by Sam Register (Teen Titans Go!), Jake Wyatt (Invader Zim: Enter the Florpus), and Brendan Clogher (Voltron: Legendary Defender). And based mostly on the promotional picture, anticipate it to slot in the mode of these extra family-friendly animated shows.
The truth that WarnerMedia is seeking to develop its animated superhero portfolio isn’t a shock: the streaming firm has already discovered success with shows like Harley Quinn (which, like Caped Crusader, is co-created by Bruce Timm), initially on DC Universe and then afterward HBO Max after the corporate consolidated content material there.
