New Release: Batman Beyond Complete Series DVD

Batman Beyond TV show sceneOne of Warner Bros.’ most-loved animated TV shows, Batman Beyond was released on DVD in a Complete Series set on Nov. 23, 2010, from Warner Home Video.

In Batman Beyond, the Bat-suit is taken over by ordinary teenager Terry McGinnis (voiced by Boy Meets World‘s Will Friedle), whose father is mysteriously murdered. Suspecting foul play, Terry visits the company where his father worked, Wayne/Powers Corporation, and meets Bruce Wayne (Batman: The Animated Series‘ Kevin Conroy reprising the role). When Wayne refuses to help, Terry becomes a new Batman, vowing to avenge his father’s death.

The TV show features voices from a number of well-known actors, including Seth Green (TV’s Robot Chicken), Wayne Brady (TV’s Let’s Make a Deal), William H. Macy (Marmaduke), George Takei (TV’s Heroes) and Black Flag front man Henry Rollins.

  • “Tomorrow Knight: The Batman Reborn,” in which the Batman Beyond creative team examines the character of Terry McGinnis and what made him worthy of becoming the new Caped Crusader
  • “Gotham: City of the Future” featurette about how the team built Gotham City circa 2039
  • and “The High Tech Hero,” looking at the technology behind the Bat-suit and the real-world science that inspired it.

The DVD set offers the DC Comics 75th anniversary documentary Secret Origins: The Story of DC Comics.
