According to The Hollywood Reporter, Michael Keaton, who starred as Batman/Bruce Wayne in the Tim Burton‘s Batman (1989) & Batman Returns, is in talks to reprise the character for Warner Bros.’s DC movie, The Flash.
Ezra Miller is on board to star as Barry Allen, AKA, the Flash, in the feature that will be directed by It filmmaker Andy Muschietti.
If a deal makes, Keaton wouldn’t just return for Flash but possibly for several other DC-oriented film projects.
Sources tell THR that the role being envisioned for the veteran actor is akin to the role played by Samuel Jackson as Nick Fury in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, something of a mentor or guide or even string puller. Batgirl is one the projects in development that could fall under that win.
Warners had no comment.
