Did You Know?


The idea for this show came from the office of Jamie Kellner, who was head of programming at the WB, after he had called a meeting with the crew from Batman: The Animated Series (1992). Kellner told them they were doing a great job on the series but it skews a bit old and the WB would really like to retrofit Batman to get more the kid demographic higher, to make sure the kids watch. The crew thought they would have to bring in another sidekick, but Kellner told them he wanted an all new show with a teenage Batman. Keller told them that this series has been green lit and they can start working on it immediately. The crew was a bit shell shocked when they were asked to do a teenage Batman series and even thought about quitting. Glen Murakami was enthusiastic about the idea and convinced everyone to do the show. See more »

At first glance it seemed silly but now I think it's great.
20 January 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Picture the scene. Young teenager enters a video rental shop. Suddenly his eyes fall on the video "Batman of the future (as it's called in the UK) Rebirth a batman movie. First thought: "What the?" I thought I might as well try it. Used to watch the old animated series. When I first watched it I just didn't know what to make of it. A strange futuristic world and stuff. And the title sequence seemed well odd.

I didn't really think much of it then.

It was when I found out that it was part of a TV series I have to say that my curiosity got the better of me. After seeing several episodes I began to understand it more. It was more of a teenagey show when compared to the original cartoons yet good.

I don't know why but the show just grew on me. Just something about it made me want to watch it. I also like the references to the past series and seeing the old characters no longer young and answering the question I'm sure many have been asking: he can't stay batman forever so how will it all end? Well if you're a fan of the older cartoon series or the comics (which I've never read) I think you may not enjoy this show.

To the people who hate this show I just say "well I liked it, maybe you should give it a chance mainly because the different style takes a little getting used to."
