Kevin Smith Wants Michael Keaton for a ‘Batman Beyond’ Movie

Posted by in category: entertainment

Recently on the Fat Man on Batman podcast Marc Bernardin brought up an exciting idea for a new Batman Beyond movie. Kevin Smith was completely for it.

Batman Beyond originally premiered January 10th, 1999. That makes it 20 years old now. It’s hard to believe that time has gone by so quickly. Batman Beyond was one of the best animated series for Batman besides well, Batman the Animated Series. It followed Terry McGinnis as he navigates becoming Batman after Bruce Wayne suffers a heart attack and can no longer do the dirty work on the streets. Bruce before that point was fighting in a mech suit trying to keep up with all of Gotham’s atrocities.

Having watched that series from start to finish I can tell you that Terry McGinnis is one hell of a character. Bruce helps him behind the scenes and advises him on strategy, tactic, and fighting skills. The intro to that show is amazing and still stands strong today.
