Trivia

DVD audio commentary for the first episode, Batman Beyond: Rebirth: Part 1 (1999), reveals that one of the original intentions of the TV show was to shift crime from the streets of Gotham to the boardroom, with the villains being wealthy and powerful members of Gotham society. Though crime would be just as prevalent as it had been in the time of the original Batman, the streets themselves would actually be safer. The Jokerz street gang, introduced in the first episode, would be one of the few remaining members of "low class" crime. This idea was never brought to full fruition, but the primary villain of Season One, Derek Powers, was a representative of this wealthy class of criminals. 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."
