Batman over voice and casting director Max McMillian believes a fan campaign is needed for Warner Bros. to revive the hit animated series. Originally broadcast between 1999 and 2001, Batman over consisted of 52 episodes in three seasons. The series hasn’t had a sequel since, but in the years since it went off the air, the show has developed quite a cult following with many fans hoping the series will one day return.
During IGN Fan Fest’s Batman over table with cast members, McMillian was asked about the possibility that the series will have a new season of the series or maybe even a feature film. Though McMillian says he’s on board along with the cast to bring back Batman over, the decision is in the hands of Warner Bros., and as McMillian explains, it will take some convincing before the studio pulls the trigger.
“It will depend on the fans asking, and asking and asking for it [show owner] Warner Bros. would be foolish not to. So they have to start some sort of campaign and Warner Bros. let them know that’s what they want. Because we would love to make it, it would be great fun – we’re all still here, we’re all still available, everyone’s still doing great work. So yes please, and thank you. “
Serve as a sequel to Batman: The Animated Series Batman over takes place decades in the future with Kevin Conroy returning as the voice of an elderly Bruce Wayne. Because his health prevents him from protecting Gotham City as he had many years before, Bruce allows teenage citizen Terry McGinnis (Will Friedle) to don the Batsuit as the city’s new Dark Knight. The show featured a mix of new supervillains and a few familiar faces from the past.
Some fans have called Warner Bros. called to make a live-action Batman Beyond movie with a storyline similar to the cartoon series. A popular idea is for Michael Keaton to reprise his role as Tim Burton’s Bruce Wayne Batman to serve as a mentor to a new hero. There is no evidence that Warner Bros. considering such a project, but Keaton’s return to the role in The flash proves he’s open to stepping back into the cape and hood.
Maybe fans have better luck with Warner Bros. then X-Men: The Animated Series fans have with Disney. With the remaining voice cast open to making new episodes, along with the show’s original creative team, fans have been calling for a continuation of the ’90s cartoon to be ordered for Disney +. As of now, those calls in the House of the Mouse have fallen on deaf ears, and each year that passes makes it less likely that the revival sequence will ever come to light.
Time will tell if we will ever become new Batman over in one way or another. In the meantime, fans can revisit the original series, streaming all three seasons on HBO Max. This news comes from IGN.
