HBO Max seems to be the biggest enemy of its own projects. The studio has canceled Batman: Caped Crusader’

Just when you thought Warner couldn’t come up with new ways to annoy their fans: Boom! The company decides to cancel its animated products and spit in the faces of animators. Deadline has confirmed that Warner Media has decided to cancel the ‘Batman: Caped Crusader’ series.

It is not the only animated project that the studio has canceled. In addition to this, Warner has also decided not to continue with ‘Merry Little Batman’, ‘The Day the Earth Blew Up: A Looney Toons Movie’, ‘Bye Bye Bunny: A Looney Toons Musical’, ‘Did I Do That to the Holidays: A Steve Urkel Story’ and ‘The Amazing World of Gumball: The Movie’, with the latter Project reportedly looking for a new home outside of HBO Max.

The case of Batman: Caped Crusader’ is one that hurts, since it is one of the most interesting animated projects that the studio had. The series was going to be produced by Bruce Timm, JJ Abrams and Matt Reeves (‘The Batman’ and ‘Dawn of the Planet of the Apes’), trying to retake an aspect of the super hero that has been lost over the years: the noir feeling of the. The project hadn’t been announced long ago either, with the first teaser coming in May 2021.

In fact, we even had a first image that already anticipated a much more classic style of Batman, as well as the expectations of seeing how this story would re-imagine the most iconic characters of the show.

Unfortunately, Warner’s most recent moves seem to show that the studio is willing to sacrifice content and what its users want, all to save as many dollars as possible. Like the most recent news, the changes have to do with the merger that the service will have with Discovery+. A movement that, before improving the perception of the platform, indicates how little connected the studio is with its fans and users. Animated projects have been the main losers with the most recent decisions, as demonstrated by the decision to remove 36 from their service (a good part being animated series) in an attempt to reduce the tax burden after the merger.
