Did You Know?


The working title for a long time was "Batman Tomorrow", in fact all the development art had "Batman Tomorrow" on it. However, the title was changed because it would be too hard to do promotional interstitials for a show called "Batman Tomorrow". See more »

refreshing twist on the bat mythos
28 April 2002 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

I know many a hard core fan that resent this series based simply on the fact that Bruce Wayne is not Batman. Get over it. I find this to be a very well written, interesting show. The show is great looking, improving upon the stlyized animation of its predecessor. The only real flaws are the lack of memorable villains and the silly looking new batsuit. The show is still young, though and if given the chance to blossom further this could be a fantastic series. There have been many "what if" stories regarding what happens to the mantle of the bat after Bruce Wayne is no longer able to carry on. I think Batman Beyond handles the concept better than any other attempts that have been made thus far. So to all you purists who NEED Bruce Wayne in the batsuit, try and look beyond that one dimensional thinking and take the show for what it is. There's plenty to be enjoyed here.
