    I would've been very surprised to see a 3rd movie for those aforementioned reasons.

    If nothing else, it gives them an opportunity to revive another classic DC property ;).

    Indeed. I'm sure the popular theory will be she's replacing his movies. But I'm sure it's been worked on since 2015 or 2016..

    It only feels right for Batman '66 to be rested for now. It would feel wrong for a West impersonator to play opposite Ward. I'm just grateful we got both movies.

    This is what I really want next. I have no idea which fan created this image, but it looks amazing. They'd never get Keaton, but it would still be cool...

    I think James Tucker should do Batman:Brave and the Bold Movie in place to keep the classic movie line alive.

    That is not a great surprise. If Mr. West was still with us, I think that we might have--possibly--been looking at an adaptation of the Batman '66/Wonder Woman '77 crossover. There might yet be a WW'77 animated movie or a retro project involving Superman.

    I'm certain if they did plan this, they could still cast a voice actor who could impersonate him.

    As for the no plans for a 3rd 66 movie, I will say I am somewhat disappointed but I guess it would be too soon after West's passing.

    I think so, too, but maybe Death of Superman as well?

    That's not a story I naturally see as an R-rated one, but I guess they could go pretty deep into the damage Doomsday causes and make his fight with Superman more brutal...

    I can't really think of any R-rated stories in the DC Universe, unless they adapt Alan Moore's run on Swamp Thing, or a John Constantine movie based on the original Hellblazer comics, but that was Vertigo sooo I don't know. Or maybe Blackest Knight?!

    I think adapting Vertigo stories into R-rated films could be a good idea.

    Possibly something like Green Arrow: The Longbow Hunters. And if I remember correctly Swamp Thing went Mature Readers even before it became a Vertigo book.

    I'd rather that they stick to DC stories.

    If they can't find a story that would be good for a R-rated animated film, then adapting Vertigo stories would be a good way to do more R-rated animated films. Vertigo is part of DC and several characters' comic books were originally published by DC before being restructured to Vertigo like Swamp Thing, Doom Patrol, John Constantine and The Sandman.

    What's wrong with the idea of incorporating Vertigo into their line? It would be a good idea and they can't always stick to adapting stories from their own imprint as there will come to a point that they will adapt stories from their other imprints like Vertigo, Milestone and Wildstorm.

    My eye twitches when I see Sandman and movie together in a sentence. It's TV show material, imo. The first story arc alone was 8 or 9 issues I think. I don't know, I just have a hard time wrapping my head around a 76 minute movie or two. Or maybe my brain is locked how you would adapt Gaiman's writing without watering it down.

    Well, instead of Neil Gaiman's Sandman, there could be a movie about the Golden-Age Sandman. Although, Sandman Mystery Theatre might also make for a terrific t.v. show.
