Warner Bros. is on record as saying that after Christopher Nolan completes his Batman trilogy with The Dark Knight Rises, they will reboot the Batman films again. Artist Guy Bourraine Jr. seems to think that WB should pick Batman Beyond as its next big Batman movie series, and has even created some movie posters to support his cause.
More recently, he created these two concept images/fake movie posters for a potential Batman Beyond movie. I love the designs, and the notion raises an interesting proposition for Warner Bros. Nolan’s films are so loved and acclaimed… They’re going to be a crazy hard act to follow. Not to mention the betrayal some fans may feel at Warner Bros. for not leaving the brand alone after Nolan finishes his take on it.
A Batman Beyond movie would kill both birds with a single stone — making it easy to justify a new film series while continuing to push the brand forward. The only worry is that moviegoers wouldn’t be as familiar with this character, and might not be so quick to jump on board. But if it were promoted the right way… Hmm.
What do you think? Is a Batman Beyond movie a good idea?
