The Wrap’s Umberto Gonzalez confirmed with Warner Bros. there is no animated Batman Beyond film in development.
Earlier this week, leaked concept art for what appeared to be a new Batman project prompted rumors that Warner Bros. was developing an animated Batman Beyond film. Though the prospect of seeing fan-favorite animated series return as a feature film was exciting to most fans, The Wrap’s Umberto Gonzalez confirmed there is no Batman Beyond project in the works with Warner Animation Group on the film and TV side as well as DC Films, with their official word on the subject being:
“Not true. We are not working on an animated Batman Beyond movie.”

Meanwhile, The Caped Crusader will return in a new standalone film from writer and director Matt Reeves. Plot details are currently under wraps, though the film will center around a younger Caped Crusader and includes multiple villains. Matt Reeves also confirmed that it will not be directly based on Frank Miller’s Year One comic and will make full use of the Dark Knight’s detective skills to a greater extent than previous films.
The Batman will be released in theaters on June 25, 2021.
The Superhero Movies Of 2018, Ranked From Worst To Best
2018 has gone by too fast. It seems like yesterday when the beginning of the new year was upon us, and the advent of having so many superhero movies hitting theaters seemed like a dream come true for every fanboy and fangirl. It’s also funny to look back and remember that although we ended up with a whopping nine major theatrical superhero movies, we almost had eleven. Sadly, Fox delayed both Dark Phoenix and The New Mutants to 2019 instead.
Even with those two films delayed, 2018 was still a massive year not just at the box office, but for the continued advancement of the genre on a number of levels. Whether it was through the cultural significance of a film like Black Panther or the exciting animated adventures of Incredibles 2 and Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, there was no shortage of exciting superhero stories told on the big screen this year.
Here are the 9 theatrical superhero films of 2018, ranked from worst to best. You can start the gallery by clicking “Next.”
