“Could you imagine? Oh my God…that movie makes a billion, right there man,” Smith said on his Fat Man on Batman podcast. “If you’re like Michael Keaton’s coming back, people like ‘how is that possible’ and you’re like ‘because he’s Batman Beyond B****’ and people are ‘oh f*** we wanted this our whole lives!’ This is f****** good and I am down with this. When can we go?”

Warner Bros. still can’t seem to formally declare the animated project, however fan reaction to these releases motivates them to make a move sooner than later.
