A new concept design for a potential live-action Batman Beyond film depicts Michael Keaton as an older Bruce Wayne alongside Terry McGinnis.
One of the most asked for live-action properties by fans, Batman Beyond was a television show that aired from 1999 to 2001, focusing on a teen named Terry McGinnis who was chosen to take on the mantle of Batman by Bruce Wayne himself, voiced by Kevin Conroy. In Batman Beyond, Bruce Wayne was noticeably older and lacked the physical prowess that once struck fear into the heart of criminals. One night whilst patrolling, Bruce Wayne was forced to use a gun on a goon while he suffered a mild heart-attack. Feeling uncomfortable about breaking his most important rule of no guns, Bruce Wayne left the cape and cowl behind, paving the way for a young Terry McGinnis to don the futuristic Batman Beyond suit.
Now, Instagram artist Kunal Chopra has shared artwork that imagines Michael Keaton as an older Bruce Wayne for a live-action Batman Beyond film. The project would obviously be a direct continuation of the beloved ’80s Batman movies starring Michael Keaton and directed by Tim Burton. Michael Keaton is definitely the best actor to portray an older Bruce Wayne, mostly because he is the oldest living actor who has brought the DC Comics icon to life. You can see Michael Keaton as an older Bruce Wayne for an live-action Batman Beyond film in the Instagram post below.
The concept shows an aging, melancholic Bruce Wayne (played by Michael Keaton) standing behind a younger Terry McGinnis who is in the Batman Beyond suit. Seeing Michael Keaton return as Bruce Wayne to mentor a younger actor would be a brilliant way to continue the story Tim Burton began back in the ’80s. A live-action Batman Beyond film would also be the perfect way to introduce a brand new generation to the cool, futuristic world that the creators of the animated series cooked up. Bruce Wayne is the only Batman we’ve so far seen on the big screen, so it would be interesting to see Terry McGinnis as the next Dark Knight. It is unlikely that Michael Keaton would return to the role of Bruce Wayne but stranger things have happened, so keep your fingers crossed.

Batman will return to the big screen in 2021, with Robert Pattinson as Bruce Wayne. Full plot details for The Batman are being kept under lock and key, though the project will center around a younger Bruce Wayne and feature a Rogues’ Gallery of villains that includes Catwoman, The Penguin and The Riddler. The Matt Reeves project will follow Batman during his formative years as Gotham City’s protector and will make use of the character’s detective skills to a greater extent than previous DC movies. It is expected to be the first chapter in a new trilogy with Robert Pattinson as Batman.
Directed by Matt Reeves from a script he co-wrote with Mattson Tomlin, The Batman stars Robert Pattinson as the Caped Crusader, Zoe Kravitz as Catwoman, and Paul Dano as the Riddler. Westworld star Jeffrey Wright was recently reported to be in talks for the role of Commissioner James Gordon. The movie hits theaters on June 25, 2021.
