I had no idea Cartoonito was part of WarnerMedia until today with this news. The pre-school channel and content creator is launching on HBO Max and Cartoon Network so introduced new, upcoming shows as part of that launch. One announcement was Batwheels.
Ethan Hawke will be the voice of Batman and Batwheels will feature the vehicles from the world of Gotham City.
AJ Hudson stars as Duke Thomas/Robin, Leah Lewis as Cassandra Cain/Batgirl, Jacob Bertrand as Bam the Batmobile, Jordan Reed as Robin’s sports car Redbird, Madigan Kacmar as Batgirl’s motorcycle, Noah Bentley as Bat-styled monster truck Buff, Lilimar as Batwing, Kimberly D. Brooks as The Batcomputer, and Mick Wingert as Batman’s robot repairman Moe.
Sam Register (Looney Tunes Cartoons) serves as executive producer.
That’s not all from the world of Batman. The Bat-verse continues to grow with news from THR that HBO Max is spinning up an HBO Max series to center on the Penguin. The series would be based on Matt Reeves’ upcoming feature film The Batman, and that version of the Penguin which is played by Colin Farrell.
The actor has apparently been approached about continuing the role in the series and negotiations are ongoing.
Reeves and Dylan Clark, who are directing and producing The Batman, will be executive producers on the project that charts Oswald Cobblepot’s rise through the Gotham City underworld.
Gotham City Police is already entering production as another spin-off of Matt Reeves version of Batman.
