Along with the announcement of a new Superman animated series, Tom Ascheim, (President, Warner Bros. Global Kids, Young Adults and Classics) and Sam Register, (President, Warner Bros. Animation and Cartoon Network Studios) unveiled details for upcoming animated series Batman: Caped Crusader.

From the creative minds of Bruce Timm, J.J.

We cannot wait to share this new world.”
