BATMAN: THE ANIMATED SERIES Sequel Reportedly In Development For HBO Max


Recommended Posts

DC Universe is no more, but DC Comics properties remain a priority for WarnerMedia. Now, they're heading to HBO Max as the company looks to increase its subscriber count (and how better to do that than with superheroes?). It seems the plan is to hit us right in the nostalgia "feels," though, because a sequel to Batman: The Animated Series is reportedly in the works. 

 

The news was shared on Kevin Smith's Fatman Beyond podcast when co-host Marc Bernardin shared a rumour that "HBO Max is looking at making a Batman: The Animated Series sequel that they want to continue that forward." Smith would add to this point, noting that, "I'm not involved, but I too have heard this and I've heard this from very reliable people."

I watched MOTP last week and was bewildered at how fucking boring it was. Even Walker's score was annoying as fuck, especially that horrendous main title.

I may have to turn in my geek card, but I think I actually prefer Sub Zero to Mask of the Phantasm.

Indeed. Things were never quite the same after the redesign

Yes.

The full length films are just ' crash and bang'😞

IV just lost whatever respect I had left for you

 

An ADULT version of the original could be epic!

The DC-only video-plus-comics streaming service DC Universe has folded.  All of the video content is moving to HBO MAX and the comics content is moving/being rebranded as DC Universe Infinite (to compete directly with Marvel's comics subs service Marvel Unlimited).

This is the part where I piss people off by saying I think Batman Beyond's storytelling was usually better than TAS. A good number of TAS episodes--particularly the earlier ones--leave me feeling empty by the end, like not much happened, or that there was a lot of missed potential. Episodes like the Two-Face origin are still absolute classics, though.

 

On the subject of Beyond though, I'm guessing this would be before that? I really don't know how much they can recapture the aesthetics of the original, with cast and crew departed, such as Ansara and Walker, or with people like Hamill whose voices have evolved into an almost unrecognizable timbre.

I just hope Paul Dini and Bruce Timm are involved. And that they keep the high standards of music of the original show

After Shirley's death,  I contacted the SF CHRONICLE and urged them to publish an obituary.

I used this opportunity to champion her BTAS work- unreleased at the time.
