    A rumor has been surfacing on IGN & BatmanOnFilm.com that Warner Bros. might be mulling around the idea of having the next solo Batman movie to be an adaptation of Batman Beyond. WB considered doing this before they decided on going forward with Christopher Nolan's Batman trilogy, but I guess they want to take another shot at it.

    Rumor: Warner Bros. Mulling a Batman Beyond Live-Action Movie - IGN
    BATMAN-ON-FILM.COM - Will The Batman on Film Reboot be 'BATMAN BEYOND?' (7.17.13)

    Some are against the idea because it'd be confusing if WB wanted to make a BB movie around the same time that a Justice League movie is out, but I don't think that would really be a problem. They could just "that was Bruce in modern times, this is Bruce & Terry's story in the future". I'd think it would be awesome if Michael Keaton was cast as Old Bruce if this movie gets the greenlight.

    That made me laugh so hard. Will this rumor come up every time the Batman movies get rebooted?

    Yeah. And seriously if they're going to reboot Batman so soon, it's going to be to tie into JLA.

    I was never a Batman Beyond fan, but that right there would single-handedly get me excited for a movie version. :D

    A live-action Batman Beyond movie would be cool. It's probably unlikely and I'd personally prefer an animated movie or reboot of the animated series itself, but I wouldn't be against it. It would be at least something different from focusing on Batman's beginnings and focus on a different Batman in the future instead.

    As much as I loved the cartoon, I'm cautious about a live-action version. My biggest concern is that they'd make Terry a huge jerk, as is the norm with Hollywood teenagers nowadays.
