UPDATED: Warners Animation Group reportedly bringing Batman Beyond to the big screen in new movie

January 31st, 2019 by Marc Comments

So, more DC news today… and this time it’s good news.

It seems that concept art has been leaked (below) from an upcoming DC Animated Group Batman Beyond movie.

Yes!

And, even better, it seems Warner/DC, spurred on by the success of Sony’s Spider-man: Into The Spider-verse, it will be getting a theatrical release and a serious push.

It will be based on the awesome 1990s Batman Beyond (Batman Of The Future for UK fans) series which was a sequel to Batman: The Animated Series and saw an older Bruce Wayne hanging up the cape and them fading the mantle to the new Batman, Terry McGinnis and it was pretty much as brilliant as its predecessor.

The movie is reportedly aiming for a 2022 release.

While this is just a rumour, there’s be outcries for a Batman Beyond movie for years, so maybe DC/Warners are stepping up to the plate.

UPDATE:

Sadly, Warners have stated that they are NOT working on a Batman Beyond movie.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
