Batman: Caped Crusader Will Use A New Advanced Animation Style

Aside from the more familiar things I haphazardly hope make a return on Batman: Caped Crusader, there are plenty of new reasons to look forward to the show, such as the animation style. Fun fact: most of the scenes from Batman: The Animated Series were illustrated on black paper so the animators could better accentuate the darkness of Gotham City (and save money on ink, too). While the result was memorably striking, this new series will supposedly be a major step up.


According to Warner Bros.' announcement of the development of Batman: Caped Crusader, the animators are using the latest techniques known in the art form and state of the art technologies. This means that Batman, his rogues gallery, and the bleak world of Gotham City may be getting a bit of a makeover, but not without causing any drastic changes in tone, one would hope. These new methods of animation promise to deliver exciting action sequences, which automatically has me sold.
