Over the weekend during Salt Lake Comic Con, we learned that one of the stars of the ongoing Flash series on The CW Network, would like to branch out and explore other roles in the DC Universe.
During a Q & A, Robbie Amell (one half of Firestorm) was asked about the possibility of a live adaptation of Batman Beyond, which he responded with the following:
"I'm 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. 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!"
