And now so do we.
A new report has revealed that Warner Bros. is hoping to bring Michael Keaton back to the role of Bruce Wayne in a live-action Batman Beyond film.
We Got This Covered has cited several anonymous resources that have confirmed that, following the success of Joker, the studio is looking to pursue darker DC properties, while still trying to keep in line with the older films.
This would work perfectly if Keaton, who played the Dark Knight in Batman Returns, returns to play an older Bruce Wayne in a Batman Beyond film.
It could also be an opportunity to introduce the new Batman in the series, Terry McGinnis, to the big screen, as his only appearances have been in the short-lived animated series, and fans have been hoping that Terry would appear in a live-action TV or film project for a long time.
It’s worth mentioning, however, that 2019 seems to have been the year of bringing Batman Beyond‘s Bruce Wayne to life in live-action projects, as Titans added Iain Glen in the role for the show’s second season, and iconic Batman voice actor Kevin Conroy is set to take on the role in this year’s Arrowverse crossover event, Crisis on Infinite Earths.
Batman Beyond aired on Kids’ WB from 1999 to 2001, and centred on an older Bruce mentoring Terry to become the Dark Knight.
While the project has in no way been confirmed, it’s certainly an exciting prospect, and something a lot of Batman fans would be very interested in seeing.
