Yup, you read that correctly. The power of nostalgia knows no bounds as Michael Keaton enters early talks to reprise the role of Batman.
The actor first played Bruce Wayne's alter identity in Tim Burton’s 1989 'Batman'. He returned for the sequel, Christmas classic 'Batman Returns', but not its subsequent sequels, helmed by the late Joel Shcumacher. Michael Keaton has leaned into his most renowned role in the likes of 'Birdman' and as Vulture in 'Spider-Man: Homecoming' since.
He could be stepping into the shoes of the Caped Crusader again in the upcoming 'The Flash'.
Ezra Miller, who played the role in 'Justice League', will continue to play Barry Allen.
'It' director Andy Muschietti is on board to helm it. 'Birds of Prey' writer Christina Hodson is penning the script.
'The Flash' movie is said to see the eponymous superhero travel back in time and accidentally creates different multiverses.
Presumably that's where Keaton's character can come in.
The feature has been slated for a June 3, 2022, release.
