Rumors of a potential LiveActionAdaptation have popped up ever since the show's inception; at one point, ''Beyond'' became a forerunner for a new Batman film series, at least until Christopher Nolan's ''Film/BatmanBegins'' entered production. After the conclusion of Film/TheDarkKnightSaga and the arrival of ''Film/ManOfSteel'', those same rumors picked up again.

[[TwentyMinutesIntoTheFuture Forty-some years in the future]] of the ''Batman: The Animated Series'' continuity, {{Franchise/Batman}} no longer patrols Gotham City, having hung up the cape and cowl after age caught up with him. Crime eventually returns to overtake Gotham, this time in the form of [[{{Film/TheWarriors}} Warriors-style]] street gangs who base their identities around Batman's former archenemies. The most prominent of these groups, The Jokerz, have a chance encounter with a teenager named Terry [=McGinnis=](voiced by Creator/WillFriedle), who gets chased by the clowns right to the outskirts of Wayne Manor. An aged and reclusive Bruce Wayne (still voiced by Creator/KevinConroy) comes to Terry's aid, but the fight takes its toll on the former superhero. Terry helps Bruce back into Wayne Manor, but soon stumbles upon the Batcave and learns the secret of The Batman.

The Gotham City of the mid-twenty-first century has the look and feel of an archetypal CyberPunk setting, though some Noir remnants from the original series still show up. Gotham still has its old feel--[[WretchedHive crowded, corrupt, and dirty as all hell]]--but now some cars can fly, and that includes the Batmobile. Wayne-Powers Enterprises lacks the philanthropic ideals from when Bruce ran the company, and Derek Powers hates the new Batman's interference interference in his less-savory endeavors--and when Terry eventually causes Powers's transformation into the radioactive supervillain Blight, that hatred grows far more personal.

**Visually, Blight bears a substantial resemblance to the obscure Batman villain Doctor Phosphorous, also a glowing, radioactive skeleton.
