For possible canon sources we have:

  • The original TV series
  • The original comic series
  • The Return of the Joker (DVD)

In the original TV series Batman (Terry) travels to the Fortress of Solitude in the The Call 1 & 2. And yet in the Batman Beyond Unlimited #2 he says this while conversing with Superman.

I would think he already knows that Superman has a sort of trophy room. It is within the Fortress of Solitude.

In the same comic issue Batman (Terry) refers to how Tim Drake ended his crime-fighting career originally. Is he referring to the events of The Return of the Joker? Or something else?

You're correct in that he's referring to the events of Return of the Joker. The canon for the new Batman Beyond series ought to be surprisingly large. It would contain as a start:

  • Batman Beyond (tv series)

But that series was part of the larger DC Animated Universe of the 90's and 00's. That means the canon should also include:

  • Batman: The Animated Series (1992–1995)
  • Batman: Mask of the Phantasm (1993)
  • Batman & Mr. Freeze: SubZero (1998)
  • Superman: The Animated Series (1996–2000)
  • The New Batman/Superman Adventures (1997–2000):
    • Superman: The Animated Series (1996–2000)
    • The New Batman Adventures (1997–1999)
  • Batman Beyond (1999–2001)
  • Batman Beyond: Return of the Joker (2000)
  • Justice League (2001–2004)
  • Batman: Mystery of the Batwoman (2003)
  • Justice League Unlimited (2004–2006)

(I've pruned the series that probably will never come up in the Batman Beyond series, but I expect there to be references to the old Justice League adventures and villains. The complete listing is in my link above.)
