The WB! animated series Batman Beyond continues and updates the tradition of the Dark Knight, adding a futuristic, industrial edge to Batman’s style and sound. This chapter of Batman’s tale is set 50 years in the future and introduces Terry McGinnis, a new crime fighter under Bruce Wayne’s tutelage. Fittingly, Batman Beyond weaves techno and industrial elements into its score, which was written by the same team that composed the soundtracks for Batman: The Animated Series and The New Adventures of Batman & Robin. Tracks like “Cold Vs. Hot,” “Nuclear Lab Destruction,” and the show’s main theme express Batman Beyond‘s contemporary take on the Batman legend.—Heather Phares
