Anyway, we will keep you updated about any new information that comes related to the upcoming speculated sequel of Batman: The Animated Series and all the DC Projects, so stay tuned to Otakukart News.

The rumor alleges that HBO Max is working on Batman: The Animated Series revival.

On a recent episode of Fatman Beyond, hosts Marc Bernardin and Kevin Smith alluded to the possibility of a Batman The Animated Series sequel.

Speaking of the 1992 animated series (which lasted until 1995 with two seasons and 85 episodes), this was precisely the one that unveiled the character of Harley Quinn.

The show features the voice talents of Kevin Conroy as Batman and Mark Hamill as the Joker (among many others), who have returned to reprise their roles in various movie spinoffs and video game adaptations.

Bruce Timm and Paul Dini's animated series stood out for its aesthetic as attractive as it was dark, its much deeper treatment and respect for the characters, but also marked the history of Batman and DC Comics by creating Harley Quinn.

The Dynamic Duo made the jump to animation in 1968 thanks to Filmation's Batman cartoon. The series stuck pretty closely to the look and tone of DC's'60s-era Batman comics though the crude animation quality resulted in a lot of unintentional humor. For

Talk of a sequel is interesting, especially considering that Batman: The Animated Series has already received a sequel series in the form of Batman Beyond. "I think that's real, I don't think that's a rumor, I wouldn't say 'Set your watch to it, ' but it's an idea whose time is not only coming, I think it came, and it's smoking a cigarette", said Smith. I think it will happen.

To me it's obvious, there's HBO Max, there's already this unbelievable series that is Harley Quinn, you're going to make money if you make a Batman, the animated series again. It's not like "oh, we gotta explain why everyone's older", no it's fucking animation, so they can just go right back to these stories that were awesomely awesome. You know what I'm saying, it's not like 'oh they went back and did it again and now it's ruined, ' like some people felt about Twin Peaks. You can't screw up the inheritance, that's for sure. You can't f**k it up, there's no reason not to do it, as long as you've got the key creative components, as long as Bruce Timm is involved, wants to be there.

The three-part documentary (combined into one single presentation above) was first available on the Blu-ray release of Batman: The Animated Series.

This series, along with the likes of the television series Justice League and Justice League Unlimited managed to fill in a lot of the gap between Batman: The Animated Series and the future of 2039, not leaving too much room for a straight up sequel.

If they were to continue the BTAS saga, I really hope they'll remain faithful to how the entire series was animated back in the '90s.
