Rumor: Is Warner Bros. looking at doing a Batman Beyond movie?

07.17.2013

Folks, this is interesting.

Warner Bros. has been spending time wondering what they are going to do with Batman next. Will Joseph Gordon-Levitt take over? Would Christian Bale consider coming back in any capacity? (He said he was done.) Should they do something different altogether? If the rumor holds any truth then they might be doing just that.

The site Batman on Film has been hearing that the studio is considering using BATMAN BEYOND as the basis for a reboot of the material. They say that it would not be a continuation of anything that Christopher Nolan has done. Here's why they mention this: In BATMAN BEYOND, the story focuses on Terry McGinnis, a teenager who now wears the cape and the cowl in a futuristic setting. McGinnis is mentored by an older Bruce Wayne. If Warner's wanted to, they could set up this scenario using both Gordon-Levitt and Bale, however this is not the case. If they take the BATMAN BEYOND route it will be separate from everything else.

Again, this is a big rumor. BIG. Think of how this would effect the potential JUSTICE LEAGUE film. I'm not saying BATMAN BEYOND wouldn't work, I'm just saying that if they want to reboot Batman and want to use this idea then wait a little while.

What do you guys think?

Great idea

We need a fresh direction and Batman Beyond was a very solid and respectful continuation of the Animated Series which might have been the last gothically inspired interpretation of the universe on screen. Hoisted up by Paul Dini and Bruce Timm, two guys who really *get* Batman, I only have high hopes for this if it comes to be. Plus, there's a pretty good twist in JLU/ Epilogue that would work perfectly timeline-wise if they were going to bring this to film.

No

I wasn't too much of a Batman Beyond Fan, too unrealistic for a near future interpretation.
As a cartoon was cool, tho.

No... just... no. Don't fuck up the Justice League before it begins. Bruce Wayne is Batman.

Batman Beyond has awful animation, and sub-par story telling.

I would LOVE a Batman Beyond film

This is awesome news. I've always suggested to friends how going in this direction would be huge. Batman, hard to argue, has some of the best, most interesting villains around. Batman Beyond is no exception. Blight, Inque, Shriek, Curaré, Spellbinder...must I go on. There were also resurgence of old characters, like Mr. Freeze, and THE JOKER. There is some heavy content there, WB. I would bet Bale's main concern as reprising the role is due the the physicality of it. If he were to

I dont mind what direction they take Batman to....but why do they have to call it a REBOOT...to me calling a movie a reboot, is saying the material that came before it, wasnt that good and is in need of a remake. It might be a stupid complaint, but Nolan's Batman kicked butt and already there are rumors to reboot Batman again...I dont understand it.

one of the best

This was one of the best series ever made. Even if they did make a movie version it wouldn't do the show justice.

i think they'll take the title and the techno suit but make it bruce wayne. Although if its an independent movie from JLA , i'm on the Michael Keaton bandwagon.

When I first heard of Batman Beyond, I was thinking of how cheesy and stupid of an idea it was. Then I saw the animated series and I was wrong. The show was pretty good and Terry McGinnis's character was pretty interesting. I could see this being done right as another universe outside of Man of Steel. And yes, only Clint Eastwood can pull off an old Bruce Wayne.

I am a huge Batman Beyond fan, but a $150 million + Batman film with a teenage Batman would be an awful idea. I think the general movie going public has an expectation of whatever Batman they are watching is an adult, and a teenage Batman would hurt interest in the film. That being said, update Terry McGinnis to be in his mid-20's and I think you could make this film work.

No

I'm not interested in the concept at all, but if they ever go this route it has to be after the rebooted Batman film series has been out for a few films. But to use this as the basis of a reboot sounds crazy to me. Audiences are gonna be hella confused as to why the new Batman isn't JGL.

Keep it Separate

Batman Beyond was so cool as a cartoon because it was different, it was new and it was fresh. It was futuristic sci-fi with a little dystopian mixed in for good measure. This should just be its own movie/franchise and not in any way connected to whatever they're trying to do with Justice League. It could be Bladerunner meets Batman, and it could be awesome—as long as it's in the right hands.

Honestly...each and every story coming out of WB's DC cinematic universe is proving one thing...they're making it up as they go along. They're throwing ideas out there...and seeing what works. Now, that's completely fine...if done in privacy...but it seems they don't have a f-ing clue and are leaving it up to us to either dig the idea or scream noooooooooooooo. No foresight whatsoever. Meanwhile, Marvel are worried about what to do with their one-shots - lolzzzzz - that's how far ahead they

I tell WB's what - if they don't want to hand the project over to the DC animated people or Nolan (without interference) - just give up (and I'm saying this as someone who was left greatly disappointed with the Dark Knight Rises and Man of Steel).

They tried to make Dark Knight Returns a long ass time ago with Eastwood—which would have been stellar. But he said dressing in tights was ridiculous, and then he topped it all off by saying that if he were ever to make a super hero movie it would have been Namor. I guess that was his personal favorite as a kid or whatever... but if he thought tights were ridiculous, why did he somehow condone a semi-nude man in a fish scale speedo???

I would love a Batman Beyond movie that didn't tie into whatever continuity they're trying to establish. Cyberpunk Batman? Yes please. However, because it would have to depart so drastically from the universe they're trying to create, I doubt it would happen. Also: Jo Go Lev and Christian Bale are not going to be Batman. In Justice League or future standalones. Bale is 100% done by his own admission, and JoGoLev's role wasn't a sequel hook. Quite the opposite. It was there as an ending.

Do a Justice League movie first and also do more Batman, Superman and Green Lantern movies plus some Green Arrow, Flash and Wonder Woman movies. Introduce Roy Harper,John Stewart, Wally West, Donna Troy, Conner Kent and Terry McGillis. . Then do a Titans movie with Cyborg, Raven, Roy Harper, John Stewart, Wally West, Donna Troy, Conner Kent and Terry McGillis. Then introduce Kyle Rayner, Supergirl (Kara Zor-El), Wonder Girl (Cassie Sandsmark), Red Robin (Tim Drake), Kid Flash (Bart Allen),

Alternatively they could forget all about Terry McGillis and instead introduce Dick Grayson as Robin and have him join the Titans as Nightwing, Yeah. That would be better: they should forget Batman Beyond for now and do Justice League, Titans and Teen Titans movies and spin offs.

Probably won't happen

But it would be nice to see a future standalone Batman that is acting independently from the Man of Steel universe or happening in the future of Man of Steel that will eventually feature an older Clark Kent meeting Terry.

this would be a horrible idea. I never liked Beyond, because Terry is such a weak character compared to Bruce. If they would want to do this as an elseworld story to their cinematic universe, I'd be fine with it. It might be cool to see Batman on screen in a Blade Runner environment, but pleae do the proper Batman movie first and finally make a coherent universe!

Then it's probably BS. That site has never broke news first. Plus the dude reports on everything. The phrase: "take it with a grain of salt" is used more frequently on that site than the name Batman itself.

I LOVE Batman Beyond and wish it would be covered more in the comics. A futuristic Batman (and one that wasn't Bruce Wayne, mind you) shouldn't have worked. However, Bruce Timm and the gang pulled it off with flying colors. If Justice League doesn't pan out then hell yes WB, do it!

Sorry but no, I wanna see a scene with Bruce Wayne and Clark Kent just talking about their two different views of being a superhero. Thats what makes the Justice League, even different with The Avengers. Those two make up the whole superhero universe and them being with each other already creates great drama.

I think the way to go is continue building a DC cinematic universe, with Man of Steel as the cornerstone. Something like this will prove distracting. I guess it's the same reason why Marvel has its sights set on developing Phase II way ahead of a Planet Hulk or Marvel Zombies movie, seeing as those are peripheral to their focus.

Why not make a Batman Beyond film set in the future and a new Batman series congruently (with the new Batman series tying into Man of Steel and the Justice League)? If they use Batman Beyond as a present day model, no thanks.

After the ultra-mega-success of The Avengers you know for a fact their end game is Justice League...

...Its just a matter of finding the most lucrative route to get there. If they were to do this then they could be cutting their most popular and profitable character from what I'm sure they hope to be their tentpole of all tentpoles. It'd be like making The Avengers without Iron Man. Sure there'd still be excitement, but not nearly the level of excitement they'd hope for and it'd severely cut into their profits. Therefore I can pretty much guarantee you that this will not happen, or at least

I have the utmost respect for Warner Bros. as they have been behind some of the greatest films ever made. But when it comes to JUSTICE LEAGUE and all other solo spin-offs, they've fucked themselves into a tight pickle. They want to rush MAN OF STEEL 2 into production right away so they can get it into theaters next year (fuck me that's exhausting to think about) just so they can get the all-star team on the screen by 2015 (mad rhymes yo), GREEN LANTERN was limp so that means another reboot, and

They're just pissing in the wind when it comes to JUSTICE LEAGUE.

Other than that, I'm down for a BATMAN BEYOND film only if it's in its own reality much like THE DARK KNIGHT. But who am I kidding? If it comes to fruition, they'll want to tie it into JUSTICE LEAGUE.

Like I said, it's a tight pickle they fucked themselves into.

Thumbs up from me. I feel the same way, except for the part about having respect for Warner Bros. The problem with movie studios (and admittedly, it's a generalisation, but regardless, mostly true) is that they think that having money means they should have any input into the creative aspect of film making. The only reason TDK trilogy was successful is because Nolan had a vision, stuck to his guns and made the movies he wanted to make.

It's been the norm for quite some time now about studio execs and their minions hanging around productions and trying to assert control especially when it comes to their superhero tentpole films. Hell, Fox pretty much wrote the "How To" handbook for that model.

Why not just make a season 4 of Batman Beyond? And I mean COMPLETE with Bruce Timm, Paul Dink and company. If Futurama was able to be ressurected, then any popular DC animation can as well. I'd say it's better for Warners to focus on the developing of the Bats reboot and Justice League, and for any other comic book to movie projects, why not start developing a Flash movie? I'm so ready for Man of Steel 2 and Flash to come out the same year...Marvel needs more competition, now that Nolan's gone!

down for whatever

I see no reason this can't work. All these rumored ideas can be fully functional films if they are planned scripted and made with a larger scope and design in mind.

I have reservations about Terry in the modern JLA, but a good movie can put all this fanboy-ism to bed.

i cant understand why everytime Batman is mentioned, both Bale and Levitt are always mentioned. the writers just cant seem to get past the fact that they are over. Im all for a Batman Beyond movie. Make it a stand alone film instead of a reboot. I wish I can see a Batman film where the origins are skipped and the villians are already established. but thats me. time for some more chicken tacos, yeeea boy.

Makes no sense once so ever...

Do not believe a word of this. If the actual plan is to reboot Batman for Justice League DC will not create a live action Batman Beyond movie period.

This would be a terrible idea for DC to do in trying to build up to a Justice League film. The only one I want to see wearing the cape and cowl is Bruce Wayne. None of this mentoring stuff.

Why? No one cares about Bruce Wayne hence all the complaints about Rises and Batman not getting enough screen time.

YES!

DO IT!! It'd be a great alternative to rebooting Bruce Wayne as Batman all over again so soon after Nolan's trilogy. Bring in Michael Keaton to play Bruce and its awesome!

Just suggested Keaton because he is older and there is no way in hell Bale would do this. And Clooney and Kilmer would look off.

I am usually the guy saying "it shoudn't matter what order they make comic movies" to anyone pissed the Black Panther and most of the Justice League has been let off the screen so far yet Guardians of the Galaxy is getting a movie. But making an alternate reality version of a character that you are already criticized for holding TOO dear is NOT the step in the right direction and should definitely not be made before Wondy, Flash, and the like
