Robbie Amell Calls For A Gritty, Character-Focused "Batman Beyond" Film

During his appearance at Salt Lake Comic Con over the weekend, actor Robbie Amell revealed that he's not content with just playing one DC Comics superhero. As reported by DC Comics Movie, the actor known by comics fans for playing Firestorm on CW's "Flash" series also has his sights set on playing Batman in a big screen adaptation of the popular "Batman Beyond" cartoon.

"I'm a huge fan of that idea," Amell told the curious audience member who asked about the property. "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. 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 like a dark, gritty version of 'Batman Beyond.' The visual effects have come so far that they don't need $200 million to show the technology that they have. Make it like a nice, grounded character piece. But I don't run a studio, so that means nothing!"
