‘The Flash’ Movie Shows First Look At Michael Keaton's Return As Batman


‘The Flash’ Movie Shows First Look At Michael Keaton's Return As Batman

Quite brilliantly, Michael Keaton is set to reprise his role as Batman (and, obvs, Bruce Wayne) in DC's forthcoming movie, The Flash. This, we've known for a while - and if I can get personally nuts for a second here (c'mon, let's get nuts), Keaton is very much my Batman, when it comes to the movies, so this fills me with good vibes. What we've not seen until now, though, is a glimpse of Keaton as Batman, in The Flash.


And... we're still waiting. But, we do have a lil something, nonetheless. As Comicbook reports, a photo has made its way to Twitter showing Keaton on The Flash set, quite clearly in his Bruce Wayne finest. It's not Batman as such, true, but come on: Keaton is the best Bruce Wayne. (And yes, that is something that someone who grew up in the 1980s and '90s, loving Tim Burton's Batman and Batman Returns, would say. You can keep your Nolan trilogy.)

We were looking forward to playing Gotham Knights in 2021, but it's since slipped to 2022. Nevertheless, it looks alright, right?



As you can see in the photo below, posted by the @bigscreenleaks account, Keaton is looking sharp as the billionaire playboy turned after-dark vigilante - just as he did in 1989's Batman and its gloriously OTT 1992 sequel which taught us all to never, ever eat mistletoe. Keaton's not the only Batman/Wayne appearing in The Flash, as Ben Affleck's version from the current DC cinematic slate is set to show up, too, with Keaton's character actually a Batman from an alternative universe.

The Flash will star the familiar face of Justice League's Ezra Miller in its titular lead role (and, obvs, as his Barry Allen alter-ego, or IRL self, whatever the proper wording is for you), and newcomer Sasha Calle as Supergirl. The movie, directed by Andy Muschietti (Mama, It), is due to arrive in cinemas on November 4, 2022. It won't be Keaton's only comics-inspired turn on the big screen in 2022, either, as he's starring in Marvel's Morbius alongside Jared Leto and Matt Smith, which is due out this coming January.


In related Batman and DC news, Army of the Dead and Guardians of the Galaxy star Dave Bautista is still super keen on a Bane movie - and exclusively told us he'd want it done in a manner similar to 2019's Joker. And could a Marvel-DC cinematic universe crossover happen, someday? The Suicide Squad director James Gunn says it's not impossible.
