Batman: Caped Crusader and multiple other animated projects are reportedly looking for a new home.

According to a report from TVLine, HBO Max is no longer moving forward with the Batman: Caped Crusader. The series was being overseen by Bruce Timm of Batman: The Animated Series with J.J. Abrams, Matt Reeves, and Ed Brubaker serving as executive producers.

While the series is no longer moving forward at HBO Max, work is going to continue on the project as a new home is sought for it.

The other projects being shopped around now include Merry Little Batman, The Day The Earth Blew Up: A Looney Tunes Movie, Bye Bye Bunny: A Looney Tunes Musical, Did I Do That To The Holidays: A Steve Urkel Story, and The Amazing World of Gumball: The Movie.

There’s no word on the exact reasoning for these change in plans, but the decision seems to fall in line with other decisions made at Warner Bros. Discovery CEO David Zaslav took over. Other decisions taken by Zaslav in recent weeks included the cancelation of the Batgirl movie.

With Warner Bros. divisions still having relationships with various outlets such as Netflix, there is a chance this series will still find a home. No timeline was mentioned for possible decisions.
