To this point all of the Batman Movies that we have been given have been based on the traditional version of Bruce Wayne as Batman. Now, actor Robbie Amell, from ‘The Flash’ has expressed interest in playing Terry McGinnis as Batman in a ‘Batman Beyond‘ Movie. Would you be interested in a big screen adaptation of the Batman Beyond Cartoon Series? Check out the details on this news below, and let us know after the JUMP!
During his appearance at Salt Lake Comic Con over the weekend, actor Robbie Amell revealed that he’s not content with just playing one DC Comics superhero. As reported by DC Comics Movie, the actor known by comics fans for playing Firestorm on CW’s “Flash” series also has his sights set on playing Batman in a big screen adaptation of the popular “Batman Beyond” cartoon.
“I’m a huge fan of that idea,” Amell told the curious audience member who asked about the property. “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. By then I’ll probably be the old, crusty Batman. I’m a huge fan of that idea. I think it would be a great property. I think the smartest idea for them would be to make it like a $30 million movie, don’t do the big $200 million blockbuster. Do like a dark, gritty version of ‘Batman Beyond.’ The visual effects have come so far that they don’t need $200 million to show the technology that they have. Make it like a nice, grounded character piece. But I don’t run a studio, so that means nothing!”
