Batman: The Animated Series Writer Rejects One Detail About Batman's Future

Batman: The Animated Series creator will continue the show — in ...

One of Batman: The Animated Series' writers rejects one major plot point from the DCAU. Alan Burnett is one of the names synonymous with the insanely popular cartoon, and he talked to the Above and Beyond Batman podcast about why he's not crazy about Terry McGinnis' origin story from Batman Beyond. For those who don't know, a special episode of Justice League Unlimited peers into the future of the Warner Brothers series. For fans of the futuristic Dark Knight, it's really interesting as he tries to get to the bottom of his origins. Cadmus head honcho Amanda Waller decided to make sure there would always be a Batman by overwriting McGinnis' DNA with Bruce Wayne's. A bold choice that Burnett doesn't exactly agree with.

"I never wanted (Terry) on Batman Beyond to have Bruce's DNA...and so I don't accept it. And Bruce (Timm) and I are friendly about this," he told the podcast. Burnett would also go on to reiterate that anyone could potentially be Batman, and it isn't the lineage that makes the younger Bat a hero. In his own words, "heir to the throne, they don't have to have the same DNA. It's your own willpower that makes you the superhero."

If you think that little factoid is wild, then Bruce Timm's comments from San Diego Comic-Con 2019 will blow your mind. It seems like the Batman Beyond movie could have had a sequel, and Epilogue would have been the basis for it.

Timm explained, "Catwoman was going to be our leading villain in the second movie... She was the one who cloned Bruce Wayne to create Terry, but that was going to be our big surprise in our next movie."

With Batman: The Adventures Continue going on right now, the BTAS nostalgia is rolling full tilt and Burnett teased some surprises coming fans way in the pages of the new book.
"What is different, however, is that we're going back to cover certain gaps in the original series, events that didn't have a bearing on the series at the time, but now do," Burnett said. "In other words, there will be secret histories that will turn Batman's world upside down. Things that no one knew were out there, until now."

"Perhaps the most intriguing character in the run will be young man whose story threads through most of the issues," Burnett mentioned. "He's a smart, super-elusive loner who knows way too much about the Dark Knight. How this mystery man fits into the world of Batman Adventures and what he means to accomplish should, I hope, be a real jolt for old fans."

Michelle Rose Exclusive Interview

  Q:  What's it like growing up in Mpls?   Does the city have interesting stories about Prince?     A:  I only lived in Minneapolis until I was three, but I have fond memories of it.  Even now that I live in a suburb of Minneapolis, I still feel like I'm a part of Minneapolis.  I think a lot of Minnesotans have "Minneapolis Pride", even if they don't live in Minneapolis.  Minneapolis has so many fun things to see and do, and the arts are very important here, with so many theaters and live shows.     Prince put us on the map for music.  I hear Prince stories everywhere I go in Minnesota.  I've met so many people who were associated with Prince, including one of his dancers, and even a former Paisley Park employee working as a cashier at the local grocery store, so I've heard many Prince stories.  I wish I could've been a Chanhassen resident when Prince was still alive, because I know that many Chanhassen residents saw him casually riding his bike around

  Den Edie Flyah interveiw So could you tell us a little bit about your upbringing in Ohio?  I was sent to guitar leasons by my parents when I was 10 years old. My uncle lived with us back in    Ohio then and he played the drums. I grew up with a Rock band practicing in my basement.    I did not know it at the time but this little town I lived in knew how to rock. When did music become your main interest and what lead you to take music so seriously?   When I was 13 I saw my first rock concert. It was The kinks (one for the road tour.)    It changed me instantly. Suddenly that was the only thing I wanted to do.    To this day I'm still doing it. My guitar obsession had just started and    I did take some music theory lessons as well. I began learning how to create music or write a song.    I recently worked with two clasical Violinist. A Saxsaphone player and a Pianist. The Music theory lessons did pay off as I was able to talk to them in a launguage they understood.  Being a Singer
