Robbie Amell’s Idea for a “Batman Beyond” Movie

During a panel at the Salt Lake Comic Con this weekend, actor Robbie Amell was asked, among other things, about his playing the character of Terry McGinnis in a Batman Beyond movie. The actor laid out some of his personal beliefs about the idea, including what direction the film should take, and whether or not the film even stood a chance of being made.

“I think the problem is because they have Batman going on right now, they won’t make the Batman Beyond movie until I’m too old to be Terry McGinnis,” Amell stated. “I think the smartest idea for them would be to make it like a $30 million movie. Don’t do like a $200 million blockbuster, do a dark, gritty version of Batman Beyond…Make it a nice, grounded character piece.”

As many comic book and McGinnis fans will remember, the idea of a live action film version of the popular 1990s animated show was brought up during the early 2000s, having been seriously considered before Warner Bros. decided to move on to Christopher Nolan’s Batman Begins (to the disappointment of 90s cartoon fans everywhere).
