Bruce Timm returns to direct Batman for the first time in a decade on Wednesday, April 9 in the new DC Nation short, Batman Strange Days on Cartoon Network.
Developed to celebrate the iconic super hero’s 75th anniversary, the new animated short has the dark, sepia-toned look of the original animated series from the 90s.
Check out the official synopsis and images, below:
A brand new short from producer Bruce Timm featuring a lost tale from Batman’s past, the Dark Knight tracks a strange giant to the mysterious layer of Dr. Hugo Strange.
Timm has been involved in numerous Warner Bros. Animation productions over the past two decades. He directed Justice League Unlimited, as well as serving as supervising producer of the DC Universe line of direct-to-video films. Timm’s last major TV project was Green Lantern: The Animated Series, which he developed and served as executive producer on for Cartoon Network 2011-2013.
Following the show’s cancellation, Timm stepped down as supervising producer to work on projects of his own. Batman Strange Days follows the Superman 75th anniversary animated short produced with Zack Snyder, which debuted in October.
DC Nation shorts will air after Teen Titans Go!, which is changing time slots to Wednesdays at 6:30 p.m. Eastern time.
