We have heard many rumors and things about the DCEU since its beginning. We’ve heard about movies being announced, canceled, then brought back to life; the Bat-family seems to be the one group in the midst of most of these rumors. Batgirl is seemingly back up and running after finding a new writer. Now Tyler Posey wants to add another member of the family to the DCEU as he’s now said he wants to play Terry McGinnis in a Batman Beyond film.
Posey recently played Scott McCall in Teen Wolf. The show ended its amazing run after 6 seasons on MTV last year. Posey has also starred in Jane the Virgin and will appear in season three of MTV’s Scream. He is starring in Blumhouse’s Truth or Dare, which will be released this weekend. Posey sat down with ScreenRant recently and spoke about playing a superhero. He was asked which superhero would he want to play if any, and this was his response:
“I always got… Remember Batman Beyond? I loved Batman Beyond! That’d be fun, man, I don’t want, I don’t want to get too old before I got to pitch it.”
Batman Beyond premiered in 1999 and had a run that ended in 2001. The show was a follow up to Batman: The Animated Series that even ran into the Justice League cartoons on Cartoon Network. The show meshed well and followed a very interesting storyline. Posey fits the bill and is a great actor. His Teen Wolf co-star Tyler Hoechlin is playing Superman on CW’s Supergirl currently. I think it would be awesome to see another Teen Wolf star suit up as a superhero for DC.
This would definitely need to happen sooner than later as the actor is 26 years old and isn’t getting any younger. There were plans for a Batman Beyond film after Batman and Robin, but they were scrapped. They resurfaced again after Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight Trilogy concluded, but it never happened. With the way, things look and as far along in as Batman’s story seems to be inside the DCEU, maybe now we have a true possibility. We can only wait and see as DC releases its slate of new films as the DCEU progresses.
