    Hell yeah! Hell no!
    I was actually just watching some Batman Beyond the other day, so I would be lying if I said that this was not relevant to my interests, but really I think that this film will need to be handled very carefully.

    Unlike normal batman products where you just explain that he is a traumatized billionaire with a vendetta against crime, and then get into the action after an optional training montage, with Terry they would have to establish him meeting Wayne, getting his trust, learning to batman, and also introduce the whole future setting to an audience that has to be assumed is not familiar with the parent material. It just seems like that is a lot to cram into a movie before we even get to the fun parts.

    It would be nice if they emphasized the warrior aspect of WW rather than her feminine attributes. That would require a costume overhaul, one that favored practicality over sex appeal.

    I realize this will never happen.

    I think it would be easy. Terry didn't get Bruce's trust to begin with. He stunbled on to Bruce being Batman and then stole the suit. Bruce almost let him get killed by deactivating it. So all that can be done pretty easily in an orgin movie. Which I would guess the first one would be.

    Man Of Steel and Iron Man 3 are the biggies coming up in the near future. I am hearing rumors about a JLA movie..but I think that would be tough to pull off without it being cheesy. I would love to see Hawkman on the big screen though, a very underappreciated character.
    I love Hawkman but he has got to be the character with more continuity issues than anyone else.

    Agreed..
    The lack of a consistent and committed writer is a big part of what has contributed to the character's status as a second-class hero.
    Unfortunately, continuity seems to be of little importance to editors at either DC or Marvel anymore.
