Robbie Amell Would Love To Do A Batman Beyond Movie


Robbie Amell already has a place in DC TV history as one-half of the hero Firestorm on The Flash, but he’d like to take on a much bigger role, that of Batman of the future, Terry McGinnis. But Robbie Amell doesn’t have particularly high hopes of this happening before he would be too old to take on the role…

"I am a huge fan of that idea. I think the problem is because they have Batman going on right now, they won’t make the Batman Beyond movie until I’m too old to be Terry McGinnis. By then I’ll probably be the old, crusty Batman. But I’m a huge fan of that idea. I think it would be a great property. I think the smartest idea for them would be to make it like a $30 million movie. Don’t do like a $200 million blockbuster, do a dark, gritty version of Batman Beyond. The visual effects have come so far that you don’t need $200 million to show the technology that they have. Make it a nice, grounded character piece. But I don’t run studios, so that means nothing."

Theoretically, there’s no reason Warner Bros. couldn’t put out a Batman Beyond movie in the net few years (even put Ben Affleck in makeup to make him look older), and think Robbie Amell would be pretty solid in the role, but it certainly seems that if a Batman Beyond movie is even being talked about, it’s probably way, way down the line after the initial glut of DC movies comes out.
