The fine folks over at The World's Finest have just learned that Bruce Timm and Darwyn Cooke are set to reunite and bring Batman Beyond back to the small screen. Unfortunately, it won't be returning as a series, but as a DC Nation short. There's no word yet if it's just a single episode or several, but you can expect it to air sometime in 2014 to coincide with Batman's 75th anniversary.

Darwyn Cooke is taking the design and story board lead for the short. If his name sounds familiar to you, it's because he is the man who designed the memorable introduction for the TV series. His comic book DC: The New Frontier was also adapted for the incredible animated film Justice League: The New Frontier. Bruce Timm has recently stated that if he could revisit any of his old material in an animated film, he would choose Batman Beyond. We can always keep our fingers crossed.

In the meantime, if you need your Batman Beyond fix, you can read Kyle Higgins' Batman Beyond 2.0 digitally. It has received some rave reviews and is also available in print as Batman Beyond Universe.

For nostalgia's sake, here is Darwyn Cooke's Batman Beyond intro.

I bet its going to be a raping of the original in the same style as "Teen Titans Go" is a raping of the original teen titans
PsyGuy - 10/11/2013, 10:15 AM
I hope this isnt another mislead, like "TEEN TITANS RETURNS!"

Batman Beyond:
What if Batman was more like Spiderman? And with higher tech gadgets. In the future.

That's how it strikes me anyway.
DukeAcureds - 10/11/2013, 11:37 AM
JediPhilosopher@ That's basically it, on paper. But they didn't half make some lemonade outta those lemons. Definitely worth a watch.
Hope they bring back Curt Geda and maybe even a little bit of Mr. Timm, for luck, y'know?

Always thought Batman Beyond was stupid. Bruce Wayne's parents died. He then traveled the world, learning every kung fu in the book and becoming a master detective. He returned to Gotham to use the skills given to him in order to protect the people based off of the events that have driven his life. His fear of bats. His parents' murders. His feelings of self-righteousness.

Then some random highschool kid trips and fall into the batcave and becomes his successor literally overnight.

"Hmm, how can we deface the legacy of Batman? How about make all of his experiences and training pointless because anyone can do it?"

Batman Beyond? Perfect for the 75th and Duke is right, Terry is basically a DC poor mans Peter Parker or @Best he's a combo of Jason Todd & Dick Grayson. No offense to those who love him but he was the 1thing about the series Id change or revamp,....just me
heitish - 10/11/2013, 11:51 AM

BaneSmash - 10/11/2013, 12:09 PM
I hate Beware the Batman!!! I guess I'm still bitter about YJ & GL.........
wookiefit76 - 10/11/2013, 12:18 PM
I loved this show. Also loved when he appaered in JL Unlimited as an older Batman.

It seems that the DC Shorts are launching pads for longer future shows. Kinda like a beta test to see if the audience is there 1st.

You wanna know how big of a geek I am?

Well I'm going to tell you anyway. I want to get a big red Batman Beyond symbol on the hood of my black truck.
gamecreatorjj - 10/11/2013, 12:31 PM

SoundWave - 10/11/2013, 12:33 PM
animation again? When DC finaly learn that thay must do LIVE-ACTION shorts... Much better than Marvel to it, with real comic book superhero/supervillain characters and not a crap like "Item 47" or how that calls... Live action! Why all good DC is animated cartoons(((
fettastic - 10/11/2013, 12:33 PM

Out-[frick]ing-standing.

Hell yes on the live action treatment.
HOTSHOT - 10/11/2013, 1:12 PM
It's about f[rick]in' time! :D
Jhuntdaprodigy - 10/11/2013, 1:52 PM
I love Batman Beyond, I would love for it to be brought back as a full series, but this will be cool to check out regardless and I hope they bring Will Friedle back to voice Terry. It would be epic if Bruce Timm created a brand new Batman Beyond Animated Film, maybe taking place after the final chronological episode of the DCAU. And I know this is a stretch, but I really hope one day they make a Batman Beyond live action film. Maybe sometime in the 2020s set after the inevitable Batfleck and Justice League Trilogy.
CBFan - 10/11/2013, 2:00 PM
This is cool news! Would be cool if we can maybe get some Flash shorts or maybe Young Justice shorts as well?
BritishMonkey - 10/11/2013, 3:01 PM
Perfect.
RacerREX - 10/11/2013, 3:11 PM
A day late and a dollar short!!! I've already had Batman Beyond shorts for YEARS!!!
RacerREX - 10/11/2013, 3:20 PM
They even have some varieties in Nomis' size!!!
DioFoRio - 10/11/2013, 3:59 PM
Sup' Nomis...
DioFoRio - 10/11/2013, 4:01 PM
Havenless ..BB was good shit. When it first came out I was like..no thanks...but I was wrong. It was good. And the semi -retcon in JLU was brilliant and done like a feature film. Good shit. Welcome Back Terry.
Jer3miah - 10/11/2013, 4:36 PM
Oh... HELL YEAH!! I swear i almost love Terry as much as Bruce. He's that perfect free, rebellious spirit. I can't wait for this.
Tymminator - 10/11/2013, 4:37 PM
In BB, We know what happened with Babs and Tim, but I would like a BB animated feature with Grayson.
Minato - 10/11/2013, 5:43 PM
ok
sintzu - 10/11/2013, 10:57 PM
i can see them making a new series if they get good raitings from the shorts
Azrael725 - 10/12/2013, 12:20 AM
Probably the best Batman show to ever air on TV next to the The Animated Series. If any of you ever saw the epilogue to Justice League: Unlimited, then you would know that Terry turns out to be Bruce's son. I think having a more buff and adult Terry in the batsuit would be awesome. have the shorts be a continuation, but I doubt that'll happen.
BlackRobin98 - 10/12/2013, 11:28 PM
NOMIS, thanks for the luv big guy! Head on over to the Steph Brown returns topic to bless my thoughts & role play there! Don't hate till Uve tried
