While Sony's animated superhero film Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse has proved a solid hit with audiences and critics alike, Warner Bros. may be developing their own animated film for wide theatrical release: Batman Beyond.
A new report claims that the studio is producing a feature-length adaptation of Batman Beyond, rumored to actively go into production next year for a potential 2022 release. According to SuperBroMovies.com writer Daniel Richtman, the production is tentatively looking to cast an Asian-American voice actor for main role of Terry McGinnis, Bruce Wayne's protege and successor as Gotham City's Batman.

Inspired by the animated series of the same name created by Bruce Timm, Paul Dini and Alan Burnett, Batman Beyond took place decades in the future of Gotham City with a retired Bruce Wayne passing the mantle to wayward high schooler Terry McGinnis as the cyberpunk city is gripped in a rising crime wave with both new and returning villains.
While no cast or crew has been announced, a tweet from Richtman last week indicated it may be an unannounced project to begin in 2020 from the Warner Animation Group.
