Ok, thanks for the info.
Batmangina - 12/5/2023, 12:10 PM
Is this AI generated? [frick]ing silly.

Batman Beyond is the only one worth mentioning and only if it actually had Keaton in the chair and had expanded the Burtonverse skipping over Forever and B+R
WhatIfRickJames - 12/5/2023, 12:55 PM
@Batmangina - I've speculated that Josh has been a bot for years.
ObserverIO - 12/9/2023, 5:42 AM
@Batmangina - A Batman Beyond set in the modern day DCEU Snyderverse/Burtonverse mash-up spaghettiverse? No thanks.

Bring Keaton back for a Batman Beyond set in the future and tease Damian's 666 suit in the Batcave somewhere.
Batmangina - 12/9/2023, 3:14 PM
@ObserverIO - I wholeheartedly endorse that concept - I loved Damian Wayne as much or more than I loathe Jon Kent.

I thought Morrison outkicked his coverage with Damian - it had no right to be as good as it was.
ObserverIO - 12/10/2023, 4:02 AM
@Batmangina - I agree. Something just clicked with Damian. On paper, people should hate it, but damn if it didn't work.

Outside of Batman Beyond nothing of value was lost

WW3 : After 1984, have lost faith in Jenkins

MoS2 : The reboot has been a long time coming

SMvsBA : Only reason superman should fight black adam is if he is guest starring in a shazam movie

JLD : JJ needs to redeem himself before id trust him with another franchise

COIE : the DCEU is barely developed

JL2 : who cares
GeneralChaos - 12/5/2023, 12:29 PM
@dracula - I'd throw Batman Beyond on the nothing of value heap.

Yes, I know many want to see it because they have nostalgic feels for the show they grew up on, but plenty of shows we grew up on never get adapted. Time for people to get over Batman Beyond already.
dracula - 12/5/2023, 12:40 PM
@GeneralChaos - yeah but batman beyond isnt some one off experiment, its been properly intergratted into comics and continues to be celebrated even when nothing is done with him.

thats more reason to adapt than spiderman 2099 had
The1st - 12/5/2023, 1:00 PM
@GeneralChaos - To me the best episodes weren't even on the show, except the Supes one. The serving as a soft finale on JLU and the other one on JLU were Terry dies are guilty pleasures.

Thank you Dee Dee
bkmeijer1 - 12/5/2023, 1:03 PM
@dracula - a movie having Shazam & Superman vs. Black Adam would've been cool, but indeed only because it stars Shazam. Don't get why The Rock just glossed over Shazam.

As for COIE, I could still see it work with DCEU characters. Just not as the main characters. They could instead show up as the heroes from the universe that's first to fall to the Anti-Monitor.
Arthorious - 12/5/2023, 1:28 PM
@dracula - even with the animated movies having a their version of Crisis, it still feels unearned. I’d expect that type of movie to be an Endgame of sorts; a culmination of other standalone and team ups leading to it
dracula - 12/5/2023, 1:40 PM
@Arthorious - yeah.

The Arrowverse Crisis had so many issues byt at least they had properly developed the multiverse and developed its characters

Animated Crisis should have been done with Bruce Timm’s cast and designs. Thats the only properly developed animated universe
GeneralChaos - 12/5/2023, 2:51 PM
@dracula - If they're not adapting it it's because they see no interest or future with the character. Plus to do it properly he'd have to exist in this universe with an aging Batman coinciding with the current one. It's like a future one-off story thing they'd have to commit to and they haven't even gotten the new Batman off the ground.
GeneralChaos - 12/5/2023, 2:53 PM
@The1st - Those episodes are the only time I was interested in the character and yeah they're good ones.
ObserverIO - 12/9/2023, 5:49 AM
@GeneralChaos - All they have to commit to is that Bruce Wayne lives into his 80s. They don't need to get into the past events too much, other than little teases here and there. Sounds like it could be fun.

Also I hate it when people think that the appeal of Batman Beyond is just the TV show. Batman Beyond is Batman. It's the agreed upon future of Bruce Wayne and Batman in Batman lore. It's not just a small separate franchise with only cult appeal for only those who were into the TV show.

It's the Batman franchise. The Batman franchise is huge.

That would be like saying why do 'Son of Batman', it was only one book that only a small audience knows. No, it's Batmana and that's just one of the stories. Damian Wayne is a big part of the lore of Batman and so is Tery McGinnis and any of the other allies or villains.
Batmangina - 12/9/2023, 3:16 PM
@dracula - Agreed. Nothing of value was lost. I still love the idea of Keaton as Bruce Wayne Beyond or Kingdom Come Bruce in the exoskeleton far more than the memberberry Bruce we got in The Flash.
GeneralChaos - 12/11/2023, 12:51 PM
@ObserverIO - It's not Batman. That's like saying Carrie Kelley is Robin. It's a version of Batman.
ObserverIO - 12/11/2023, 1:39 PM
@GeneralChaos - Carrie Kelley is Robin. Although Robin is not necessarily Carrie Kelley. But that's not what I meant.

I meant that the franchise is Batman and Batman Beyond is just one story in that franchise. So it's not just made for the Batman Beyond audience it's made for the Batman audience.

Like The Dark Knight Rises or Batman v Superman (or indeed the Dark Knight Returns animated adaptation) isn't made for the Dark Knight Returns audience, they're made for the Batman audience. You know?

Like Batman Beyond (and also Dark Knight Returns) may be fairly niche and not as big as Batman in general, but they're both Batman stories and excuses to make movies set in the future with an older Bruce Wayne based on fan favorite material.

I'm quite sure that the regular joe on the street doesn't know a Carrie Kelley from a Terry McGinnis, but they'd go see a Batman movie with either of them in there as Robin or Batman and an older Bruce Wayne, because they know Batman.
GeneralChaos - 12/11/2023, 2:46 PM
@ObserverIO - They didn't go to see Flashpoint, and that was heavily promoted to have an old Batman.
ObserverIO - 12/11/2023, 3:14 PM
@GeneralChaos - Sure but that's not why. The fact that it was a Batman movie (with Michael Keaton no less) is just a further testament to exactly how badly that movie failed and how much of an aversion to the DCEU general audiences now have, considering that every successive movie is flopping harder than the last.

I think Aquaman will be further testament since the first movie actually made a billion.
tmp3 - 12/5/2023, 12:17 PM
These all sound awful. JL2 would make The Marvels look like a hit
Repian - 12/5/2023, 12:24 PM
@tmp3 - The Marvels makes JL look like a hit.
mountainman - 12/5/2023, 7:35 PM
@Repian - The fact that the Marvels did worse than Justice League, Dark Phoenix, and both Tim Story FF movies sure is something.
Th3Batman - 12/5/2023, 12:19 PM
Batman Beyond can still easily be done as an elseworld movie, WITHOUT Keaton. I love the 3 Batman movies we got back in the 80s and 90s (THERE WAS ONLY 3 OF THEM), but there's absolutely no reason to limit the continuity of a Batman Beyond movie to that era. It had its time, it was good, but it's time to move on. let the filmmakers create something from the ground up with its own history that will allow a Beyond movie to reach its full potential.
dracula - 12/5/2023, 1:03 PM
@Th3Batman - Clint Eastwood or Tobin Bell would be perfect for Bruce in Batman Beyond
BackInTheJSSR01 - 12/5/2023, 2:51 PM
@dracula - Tobin Bell as Beyond Bruce would be so epic.
dracula - 12/5/2023, 2:57 PM
@BackInTheJSSR01 - if it was the 2000's he would also be a perfect mr freeze, now he is too old for that
BackInTheJSSR01 - 12/5/2023, 3:02 PM
@dracula - OMG literally! I could also see him as the DCU's or the Reevesverse's Arnold Wesker as well.
Doomsday8888 - 12/5/2023, 12:20 PM
I only mourn for MoS 2 and MAYBE Batman Beyond.
MotherGooseUPus - 12/5/2023, 12:34 PM
@Doomsday8888 - i feel this exact way... except i def mourn a BB movie
Izaizaiza - 12/5/2023, 12:23 PM
Honestly, Batman begins is the only one I'm even remotely interested in. After Batman versus Superman came out, I don't think there was anything the DCEU could do to bring me back aboard.
grif - 12/5/2023, 12:27 PM
Superman vs. Black Adam


ModHaterSLADE - 12/5/2023, 12:30 PM
Would still love a JL Dark movie, the comics were pretty solid.
bkmeijer1 - 12/5/2023, 12:56 PM
@ModHaterSLADE - with the DCU Chapter 1 having the title 'Gods & Monsters', I think JLD is a project likely to happen
ObserverIO - 12/9/2023, 5:52 AM
@bkmeijer1 - Hope they get GLD and give him a huge budget.
bkmeijer1 - 12/9/2023, 7:34 AM
@ObserverIO - wasn't he already at one point attached to a JLD project? Because it's really a made match
ObserverIO - 12/9/2023, 8:05 AM
@bkmeijer1 - He was, but like most of his projects, they didn't give him the budget he needed.

A big budget GDT movie with Swamp Thing, Etrigan, Deadman, etc. would have been truly magnificent.
