RUMOR: Michael Keaton To Reprise The Role Of Batman In ”The Flash” Film?!?
Well this is some interesting rumors swirling around the upcoming (and long in development) Flash film coming from WB. Apparently, the film will introduce the idea of the Multiverse in the DCEU and bring back actor Michael Keaton who originally played Batman in the 1989 film and it’s sequel, Batman Returns. The CW introduced the idea of the multiverse in it’s Arrowverse/Crisis crossover that had the DCEU Flash (Ezra Miller) meet the CW’s Flash (Grant Gustin) you can see that clip below:
For DC’s The Flash movie, Michael Keaton is in talks to reprise his role as Bruce Wayne aka Batman in the DCEU movie after starring in the 1989 film. Warner Bros. has been developing a solo Flash movie since casting Ezra Miller as Barry Allen aka The Flash in the DC Extended Universe. However, it’s gone through multiple directors and was stuck in development for some time. Most recently IT director Andy Muschietti signed on to helm The Flash movie, and it will follow the Flashpoint storyline from DC Comics. The storyline sees Barry travel back in time to save his mother, and create a whole alternate universe. Now it appears DC’s Flash movie will introduce the concept of the multiverse to the DCEU.
Today, The Wrap is reporting Keaton is in very early talks to play Batman in The Flash movie, but the publication notes that his appearance isn’t set in stone just yet. THR reporter Borys Kit offered further details, revealing Keaton’s Batman would be a mentor, and there’s a possibility that if he returns, he could be in multiple movies, including the in-development Batgirl film.
