Robbie Amell Wants To Play Batman Beyond (Video)



It’s been a while, but last we heard in regards to a Batman Beyond movie was about two years ago when producer Michael Uslan mentioned it.

Now while attending the Salt Lake Comic-Con, Robbie Amell says he thinks it would be a good idea and would want to play Terry McGinnis.

Check out the blurb:

“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 the big $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 a studio, so that means nothing.”

Robbie Amell plays Firestorm on The Flash and will also be featured in X-Files. There is speculation Amell may be leaving The Flash as Robbie Amell is not a part of the Firestorm character in the Arrow/Flash spinoff DC’s Legends Of Tomorrow. Maybe there’s room for Amell to play McGinnis?
