Michael Keaton Returns as Batman
After nearly 30 years, Michael Keaton is in talks to return to reprise the role of Batman. He is in talks to appear alongside Ezra Miller in Warner Bros.’ upcoming movie “The Flash,”. This news has been discovered by The Wrap exclusively. According to them, talks with Keaton are in the very early stages. Also, it is far from a sure thing and can go either way. No information is currently available about how big or small Keaton’s role is. Keaton played the Dark Knight in Tim Burton’s 1989 blockbuster Batman and reprised the role again in 1992’s Batman Returns.
According to DanielRPK, Pattinson’s trilogy will be its own standalone thing like Joker, not part of the DCEU. Matt Reeves’ trilogy is not set inside of the DCEU. It will have its place outside of DCEU, like the Joker movie. The main idea behind this step is to introduce the multiverse concept.
According to DanielRPK, Michael Keaton will replace Ben Affleck as the DCEU’s Batman. Will co-star in Flashpoint. According to Borys_Kit, Keaton could end up playing Batman in a mentor capacity and appear in multiple movies. BATGIRL is one of the possible projects.
Also, all rumors about Jeffrey Morgan playing Thomas Wayne in the upcoming Flash movie has been shut down by elmayimbe.
Michael Keaton Returns as Batman
According to The Wrap, Micheal Keaton is returning to reprise his role as Batman/Bruce Wayne yet again. He is expected to appear as Batman in The Flash, the solo superhero movie that is currently set to be directed by Andy Muschietti. In the Flashpoint comic, which serves as inspiration for the film, the Flash travels to an alternate universe where Thomas Wayne, not Bruce Wayne, is Batman. This has lead to speculation that Jeffrey Dean Morgan, who played Thomas Wayne in Batman v. Superman, might appear as Batman.
That plot will introduce audiences to the idea of the multiverse. It is one of the core concepts that are cementing DC Comics. For those who are not familiar, the multiverse refers to a vast number of alternate universes. They coexist within the larger reality inside of DC comics. This concept created to explain various contradictory changes the company’s characters experienced over the decades. It allows different versions of the same characters to exist simultaneously and, occasionally, interact. Matt Reeves’s upcoming “The Batman” will not be affected, and Robert Pattinson’s Bruce Wayne is still viewed as the future of the franchise.
As per now, the story sees Ezra Miller’s Barry Allen travel back in time to prevent the death of his mother. The result? Allen inadvertently creates another universe protected by Michael Keaton’s Batman, now 30 years older.
DC has planted the basics of the multiverse for the last few years. DC introduced it in The CW’s “Arrowverse” franchise, with “Supergirl” and “Black Lightning”. They expressly created them as being in separate universes from “Arrow,” “The Flash,” and “Legends of Tomorrow.” But most recently, during The CW’s mega-crossover event “Crisis on Infinite Earths,” movies such as “Wonder Woman” and “Justice League” became a part of the Arrowverse multiverse. The Barry Allen played by Grant Gustin on The CW encountered Miller’s, Barry Allen.
The Flash” is looking at Q1 2021 for production start, subject to COVID-19 protocols.
