Batman Beyond was a new Batman for a new generation…that did it well!. Depicting a teenage version of Batman (Terry McGinnis) in a futuristic Gotham City under the tutelage of an elderly Bruce Wayne, the series began airing on January 10, 1999, and ended its run on December 18, 2001. Staring Will Friedle as Terry and Kevin Conroy (of course) as Bruce Wayne! After 52 episodes spanning three seasons and one direct-to-video movie, the series was put on hold for the Justice League animated series, despite the network having announced plans for a fourth season. The show would continue on in comic form in one way shape or form. The most current of which is set in a possible future for the current DCU Canon.
Well seeing as how I missed talking about this in my video yesterday I figured I’d make up for it by giving the Batman Beyond animated movie its due in 2022…and that news WOULD have been positive had I not read up how they basically plan on RECASTING the role of Terry McGinnis! WTF!
The rumor about the Batman Beyond movie in development has been debunked
No, there is NO BATMAN BEYOND movie in development! Their official word is “Not true. We are not working on an animated Batman Beyond movie.” In fact, to be extra sure, it was checked & shot down at Warner Animation Group on feature side, DC FILMS, & WB Animation on TV side. pic.twitter.com/fei3bczq0F
