‘Batman: Caped Crusader’ adds Ed Brubaker to creative team

Brubaker joins Bruce Timm, JJ Abrams, and Matt Reeves on what’s shaping out to be an incredible new Batman animated series.

On Saturday, Borys Kit of the Hollywood Reporter exclusively revealed that Ed Brubaker will be the head writer of Bruce Timm’s upcoming HBO Max animated series, Batman: Caped Crusader. He will also run the writers room and act as Timm’s right hand producing the show.

Since you’re reading AIPT right now, it’s a pretty safe bet that you realize what a great hire this is. Brubaker can write just about any genre well, but he’s at his best (at least in my opinion) when he’s telling stories centered around lone vigilantes. Kill or Be Killed is still my favorite thing he’s done, but the multiple Eisner-award winner has also penned some fantastic Batman stories over the year. Now we get to see him put the Dark Knight’s adventures on screen.

When you add Brubaker’s name to the others attached to Caped Crusader, it’s hard not to have extremely high expectations for the 10-episode series. If it’s anything like all the other wonderful DC work that Bruce Timm has produced over the years, then we should be in for a real treat.
