Batmobile animated series coming. No, you read that right…

Well, here’s something that I never realised anyone wanted but HBO Max and Cartoon Network are going to give us anyway.

A Batmobile animated series is coming… no, really.

Warner Bros. Animation has started production on an animated preschool series called “Batwheels,” which will star some of the most iconic vehicles from across the DC universe, fighting crime in Gotham City alongside the usual squad of Batman, Robin, Batgirl and more.

The show’s main crime-fighting crew is led by Bam (The Batmobile), and also includes Bibi (The Batgirl Cycle), Red (The Redbird), Jett (The Batwing) and Buff (The Bat Truck). Together, the sentient super-powered vehicles must navigate the growing pains of being a newly-formed super team, as well as the growing pains that come with just being a kid.

So, it’s kind of like Cars, only set in the DC Universe? Well, the toys should be cool…

Sam Register, president of Warner Bros. Animation and Cartoon Network Studios, said of the series: “From ‘Batman: The Animated Series’ to ‘Teen Titans Go!,’ superhero storytelling has definitely been one of our superpowers here at Warner Bros. Animation,” added Register. “We are so excited to bring that expertise over to the preschool space and take something that all kids love, cool vehicles, and give it a turbo boost with Batman!”

Hey, look, if anything brings Batman into the home of younger viewers, making new fans, then I’m all for it.

And yes, I’ll definitely look myself.

What say you all?

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
