There's a mystery afoot in Gotham City, and Batman must go toe-to-toe with a mysterious vigilante, who goes by the name of Red Hood. Subsequently, old wounds reopen and old, once buried memories come into the light.
At least 40 years after the "current" adventures of Batman and 20 years after Bruce Wayne retired from the role, his secret is discovered by troubled teen Terry McGinnis. After McGinnis' father is murdered by the man who took over Bruce Wayne's company, McGinnis dons a high-tech Bat suit that Wayne last used, creating a new hero for a future Gotham. Written by
The executives had the creative team develop the series to be a children's television series, and to sell toys. Like "Batman: The Animated Series", "Superman: The Animated Series' and "Justice League (Unlimited)" (later on), "Batman Beyond" was one of the few children's television series that was actually not a children's television series. At comic-con 2006, Bruce Timm stated at a panel, that even though the rating for the shows was TV-Y7-FV, a rating normally designated for Children's programming, he and the creative team knew that it was TV-PG, a rating assigned for shows targeted at general and adult audiences (much like "The Simpsons' target audience). The creative had always wanted to tell good stories and explore the themes and characters from the source material, and making a show limited to children was not something they wanted to be bound to. In the end, the shows had gained a great adult following, and turned out be shows for all ages/adults. See more »
Oh man! I can't believe it has been canceled a long time ago! Why did it has been canceled?!! I looooooved it. Best Batman series ever along with 4 previous Batman The Animated Series and Gotham Knight.
I actually liked the idea of the Future of Batman. The helmet and suit with red bat logo, those were amazing. I loved them. It was completely different and excellent unique.
Even though, I'm so excited to get Batman Beyond The First complete Season which it will be releases on March, 2006 along with Justice League. It's about time, huh? :) I'm so excited.
This series deserves to have 10/10. Best series ever.
