Batman has faced many foes while being Gotham’s guardian, and some have been clowns. But there is one evil clown that Batman has never faced, until now.
A fan has mashed up elements of Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice and IT to create a trailer in which the two battle it out. Batman is framed as someone seeking vengeance against Pennywise the Clown and seeks to unravel the mystery behind him, similarly to the plot of IT. Just with more awesome Batman fights.

While it is unlikely the two will ever face off in an actual movie, it is fun to dream about two icons from different media battling it out for supremacy.
Based on Stephen King’s best-selling novel. A group of young kids face their biggest fears when they seek answers to the disappearance of children in their hometown of Derry, Maine. They square off against an evil clown named Pennywise, whose history of murder and violence dates back for centuries.

Stephen King’s IT is now showing in theaters everywhere.
5 Reasons To Revive ‘Batman Beyond’
It’s a great time for fans of DC animation. A long awaited third season of Young Justice has finally been announced. This is alongside the slew of animated movies, which unlike the live-action DC films, have generally received great critical praise.
Recently, DC released Batman and Harley Quinn. It boasts a return to the creative style of Bruce Timm’s DC Animated Universe, bringing back the voice talents of Batman: The Animated Series stars Kevin Conroy and Loren Lester as Batman and Nightwing, respectively.
This is the closest we’ve come to a new DCAU series in more than 10 years. So why stop there? We last heard from the DCAU when Justice Leauge Unlimited ended in 2006. Though that series ended with a satisfying resolution involving an epic battle with Darkseid, there’s another series that never got real closure, that has plenty of untapped potential: Batman Beyond
The futuristic series ran on Kids WB from 1999 – 2001. It featured a young Batman, Terry McGinnis, taking up the mantle from an elderly Bruce Wayne, who guided the teen from the shadows. Despite the show’s critical and commercial success, WB wanted to take the network in a lighter direction, and unceremoniously pulled the show after a measly 52 episodes.
Though the show ended nearly 15 years ago, it’s remained an iconic iteration of Batman. It was so darkly distinctive, with its fantastic animation, mature storytelling and shocking violence. These distinctive qualities have allowed Batman Beyond to survive in comic book form to this day. It’s been part of the mainstream DC comics canon for years now, and through its many different storylines has shown remarkable creative staying power.
This suggests that there’s plenty of reason for Batman Beyond to come back to the air. With Batman and Harley Quinn’s imminent release, and the revival of Young Justice looming, the time is ripe for a Batman Beyond revival. Here are the 5 reasons why. Click next to get started!
