Batman Beyond, as we all obviously know but I’m going to explain anyway, takes place in the future. Bruce Wayne’s old. Too old to be Batman anymore.
In comes Terry McGinnis. A young punk. But when he’s father is murdered, he discovers Batman and yadda yadda, new future Batman.
Now, onto Return of The Joker. I will try and keep this spoiler free, even though the movie’s a few years old by now.
Joker’s back, somehow. Batman has to stop him. This might be the most personal the Joker has ever gotten in the animated continuity.
And the uncut PG-13 version is surprisingly adult and disturbing. At several points in the great, great flashbacks it’s quite dark.
Really, it’s just excellent. It might not be Mask of The Phantasm, which I still consider the finest Batman movie so far, better even then The Dark Knight, but wow, is it great.
