Storyline

Twenty years after Bruce Wayne's retirement as Batman, the world has changed even as he retreats from it, ceding control of his company, Wayne-Powers Enterprises, to his partner, Derek Powers. In that world, Terry McGinnis is an ordinary kid whose father, Warren, works for that company. While Terry was out on the town, he has a chance encounter with Bruce Wayne and, his legacy as Batman. He also learns that his father was murdered in his absence and finds a disc containing data that suggests the true motive for the crime and the culprit, Derek Powers. Turning to Wayne as the only one he can trust, he learns that Wayne will not help him directly fight Powers. In desperation and without permission, Terry dons Wayne's last Batman outfit to challenge Powers himself, but can he convince Wayne to help him in order to fight Derek Powers?

Trivia

The VHS and DVD release was originally named "Batman Beyond: The Movie", which is a bit of a misnomer, as it isn't so much a movie as it is a collection of six episodes from the first season of Batman Beyond (1999). It contains "The Movie", which is really a merging of the two-part series opener called "Rebirth". At around 45 minutes without commercials, one could hardly call that a feature-length movie. Four other episodes trail the origin - "Golem" (misnamed "Gotham Golem" on the case), "The Winning Edge", "Dead Man's Hand", and "Meltdown" - none of them tying in much to each other, save for the same basic premise as spun off from the origin in the first episode. Later DVD releases eliminate "The Movie" from the title on the case and proclaim "6 Exciting Action-Packed Episodes" on the cover. See more »

NEW BATMAN=NEW AND EXCITING ADVENTURES
6 March 2002 | by Big Movie FanSee all my reviews

It's always fun to watch somebody inherit a famous superheroes mantle and the result is always fresh and exciting.

Terry McGinnis is the new Batman and a very interesting character. It's also interesting watching an elderly and cynical Bruce Wayne act as mentor to Terry. Boy, hasn't Bruce become miserable in his old age?

The new Batman is fresh, young and raring to go and he honestly believes that he can change things. Terry has had some great adventures fighting the criminals of the future especially the Jokerz. This is an intelligent cartoon and very dark just like it's predecessor. This is an awesome cartoon with several years ahead of it. It actually came out in 1999 but I only actually watched this movie and subsequent episodes at the end of 2001. I now catch the episodes whenever they are on.

All in all, a great series but I do have one question; Is Superman still around in the future?
