The animated feature Batman: Return of the Caped Crusaders is one of the most interesting films making its debut at New York Comic Con, so we caught up with the guys who wrote the script for a sneak peek.

The film’s co-writers James Tucker and Michael Jelenic opened up about the parallels with their previous animated series Batman: The Brave and the Bold, bringing Adam West back as Batman ’66, and the importance of flipping the script and telling the story of a happier, “aspirational” version of the Dark Knight that makes it easier for kids to continue to look up to the hero.

They also geeked out over the limitless budget of doing an animated film, and teased everything from the Bat-rocket to a much more expansive Batcave. If you've been wishing for a version of Batman '66 that can truly go crazy, this should fit the bill.
