The latest rumor in the long line of Batman reboot related rumors is that Warner Brothers is looking to develop a Batman Beyond feature franchise.
For those who haven’t seen/don’t remember Batman Beyond is the story of Terry McGinnis, a rambunctious teenager, who is taken under the watchful eye of an aging Bruce Wayne. Wayne outfits McGinnis with an Iron Man like suit that was constructed specifically for the purposes of crime fighting.
The main problem with this rumor is two fold. 1) How does this Batman fit into plans for a future Justice League movie? Answer: It doesn’t. 2) This is exactly what the hardcore Bat-fanbase would want. Therefore, it’ll never happen. DC/Warners doesn’t have the balls. They’re terrible at actually delivering on the potential of their characters.
I’ve got my fingers crossed that this will happen.
JEEBUS. PLEASE LET THIS HAPPEN.
