Michael Keaton is reportedly in talks to reprise his role as the infamous caped superhero, Batman.

Keaton last played the DC superhero in Tim Burton’s Batman Returns (1992). Almost thirty years on, Keaton is rumored to be returning in the upcoming DC Extended Universe movie, The Flash.

According to The Wrap, it is currently unclear whether Keaton will be appearing alongside Ezra Miller in the feature. If he does, it may be that his role is small.

The Flash will introduce fans to the concept of the DC multiverse. This means that Robert Pattinson’s portrayal of Batman would not be impacted by Keaton’s possible return.

As it stands, Pattinson is set to make his debut as the caped hero next fall. The release date of The Batman was previously June 2021 but it has since been pushed back as a result of delayed production due to the coronavirus.
