Is Michael Keaton the new Batman? Not so fast

When The New york city Times reported that DC Movies’ strategies to have Keaton repeat his function as Batman in “The Flash,” some fans took it as Keaton would be Batman completely in the DC Extended Universe.

However Brooks Barnes, the author of the piece, has actually clarified that Keaton will just remain in “one film.”

“Been offline (moving apartments) and return to see this Michael Keaton craziness,” he composed. “I was referring to the *one film* that Keaton has been announced as being in, not a set of his own Batman films. If I had info on him beyond ‘The Flash,” I would have undoubtedly put it in my short article.”

On The Other Hand, “The Flash” doesn’t come out until November 2022, so fans will have to wait.

Keaton played Bruce Wayne/Batman in Tim Burton’s 1989 movie “Batman” and then the sequel “Batman Returns” in 1992. He was eventually replaced by Val Kilmer in the 1995 film “Batman Forever,” after Keaton refused to continue starring as the superhero after Burton was dropped as director of the franchise.
“The Batman,” which stars Robert Pattinson as the caped crusader, is set up to come out in October 2022.
