First Look at Batman: Caped Crusader Coming to Prime Video August 1

DC Comics has released new stills for the upcoming show Batman: Caped Crusader which comes out to Prime Video starting August 1

Check out the still images that dropped today after the cut.

Our first look at Batman’s costume for this new series that’s set in it’s own continuity.

Here’s the synopsis for the series:

“Welcome to Gotham City, where the corrupt outnumber the good, criminals run rampant and law-abiding citizens live in a constant state of fear. Forged in the fire of tragedy, wealthy socialite Bruce Wayne becomes something both more and less than human — the BATMAN. His one-man crusade for justice attracts unexpected allies within the GCPD and City Hall, but his heroic actions spawn deadly, unforeseen ramifications.”

We also have a look at this series’ Catwoman aka Selina Kyle together with Bruce Wayne…

And here’s the Catwoman in Batman: Caped Crusader

We also have a look at Harley Quinn and her alter ego, Dr. Harleen Quinzel…

It looks like they would also be steering clear from Harley’s connection to The Joker and making her her own character. Producer and Harley Quinn creator Bruce Timm had this to say about this “weird” take on Harley.

“I co-created the character, so I have a lot of love and affection for her, but I thought there might be something interesting about bringing her on the show, just not as Joker’s girlfriend,” Timm told EW. “So how do we do that? A big part was just doing a basic flip. The original Dr. Quinzel was a little bit more serious, and then when she became Harley, she got really goofy and weird. So we thought, what if we reverse that? When she’s Dr. Quinzel, she’s a little bit more whimsical and fun, and then when she’s Harley Quinn, she’s scary.” As you can see in the images, aside from Harley, other villains we’ll see get that 1940s take include Catwoman (an homage to Barbara Stanwyck’s con artist character in 1941 screwball comedy The Lady Eve) and Clayface (“inspired by classic horror movies”).

There’s also a serial killer and The Shadow looking Clayface.

Also reminds me of The Stranger from Resident Evil 4…


And we also follow the uniformity of getting an African-American Commissioner Jim Gordon for this series.
