How to Watch “Batwheels”
Before following getting into all of the action with “Batwheels,” kids will get to see how these superpowered vehicles came to be in “Secret Origin of the Batwheels.” The origin story will show how the Batcomputer created the cars, bikes, trucks, and planes in order to help Batman, Robin, Batgirl, and the other familiar heroes.
The vehicles brought to life by the Batcomputer are Bam (the Batmobile), Bibi (the Batgirl Cycle), Redbird (Robin’s Sports Car), Batwing (the Batwing Jet Plane), and Buff (The Bat Truck).
The Batwheels are a team of sentient super-powered crimefighting vehicles that help Batman, Robin and Batgirl—as well as a host of additional DC Super Heroes—keep Gotham City safe. Created only recently by the Batcomputer, our mechanized heroes 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.
In the special and subsequent series, Ethan Hawke provides the voice for Batman, while Gina Rodriguez will play Catwoman, and Leah Lewis will be Batgirl. As for the Batwheels team, Jacob Bertrand will voice Bam, Jordan Reed will be Redbird, Noah Kaye Bentley will be heard as Buff, and Kimberly Brooks will voice The Batcomputer.
