Director’s Quotes on Fan Campaigns
The series has got quite a fan base over the years. The fans are now eager to know if there will be a continuation of the series someday. Eager fans and the press asked Macmillian about the possibility of Batman Beyond getting its own live action movie.
Batman Beyond voice and casting director Max McMillian says that the fans will have to convince Warner Bros. As all the decision-making is up to them.
“It will depend on the fans asking, and asking, and asking for it until [show owner] Warner Bros. would be foolish not to. So they have to begin a campaign of sorts and just let Warner Bros. know that that’s what they want. Because we would like to make it, it would be great fun – we’re all still around, we’re all still available, everybody’s still doing beautiful work. So yes, please, and thank you.”
Batman Beyond is a sequel to Batman: The Animated Series and The New Batman Adventures. The series takes place in the chronological future of the DC Animated Universe.
