Batman: The Animated Series Sequel Rumored For HBO Max

As it now stands, Disney+ is the streaming service for all things MCU while HBO Max boasts an impressive library of both DC and DCEU properties with more on the way. Why not continue to add to that library with fresh material that continues a series fans already love?

In a video from Watchtower Database highlighting a segment from Kevin Smith and Marc Bernardin’s Fatman Beyond live chat, both Kevin and Marc shared that they’ve both heard rumors about a Batman: The Animated Series sequel.
During the live video, Marc Bernardin said, “…the rumor is HBO Max is looking at making a Batman: The Animated Series sequel that they want to continue that forward.”

Batman: The Animated Series was an Emmy Award-winning series that ran from 1992 to 1995 and was revered for its darker, film noir style with stories that played more towards an adult audience. The series is well-known for having Mark Hamill of Star Wars fame as the voice of the Joker, and for having first introduced the fan-favorite character of Harley Quinn.
Kevin Smith’s reaction to Marc’s comments was telling prompting him to reply saying, “…I’m not involved, but I too have heard this and I’ve heard this from very reliable people.”

Even though Marc and Kevin both emphasized this is all rumor at this point, the fact both had heard this news apart from one another is interesting. In addition, Kevin’s claim that he heard this news from reliable sources definitely makes the rumor worth paying attention to and yields to its credibility.

It’s also no secret that Mark Hamill loved voicing the Joker during the series run. Since he technically made a comeback as Luke Skywalker in Season 2 of The Mandalorian, it’s possible he would be interested in making a comeback as the Joker in this sequel series too.
