After the shake-up of DC by the newly appointed Co-CEOs Peter Safran and James Gunn, there’s an outrage as Gunn doesn’t see Zack Snyder, Ben Affleck, and Henry Cavill in his future plans for the DCU. This decision has riled up the fans, and they are doing everything in their power to see the figures back.
There were rumors that a Batman Beyond movie was in development, but the CEO decided to reboot the DCU, therefore it is reported that the movie may not happen. Needless to say, this information has provoked the fans and they are going to Twitter to express their views on the possible cancelation of the movie.

Fans WILL NOT Be Happy if a Batman Beyond Movie is Cancelled
During an episode of The Hot Mic, John Rocha and Jeff Sneider talk about superhero movies and TV Series scoops that would shake the internet and during this, Sneider stated that a Batman Beyond animated movie was in production.
However, James Gunn is “overseeing movie, TV Series, and animation, as well” and he might not be looking forward to such a movie. Allegedly, Dan Cassie has made multiple drafts for the movie, but it is not official because none of the people involved in the project has made any comments about the animated film getting canceled.
An animated ‘BATMAN BEYOND’ was in the works at DC.
It is unknown if the film, written by Dan Casey, is still going to happen as it was put into development by Walter Hamada.
