The Flash is an upcoming film in the DC Extended Universe (DCEU); It plays Ezra Miller in the title superhero role when he plays Barry Allen again. The film was supposed to mark the return of Michael Keaton as Batman / Bruce Wayne. However, his involvement in the project ended when the actor decided to investigate the COVID-19 situation before signing up. Now he will officially be seen in the film.
Michael Keaton has now confirmed that he will return as Batman in “The Flash”.
According to The Wrap, Michael Keaton’s talent agency ICM Partners has confirmed that the actor will return as Batman on The Flash. The superhero film officially started production in London on Monday, as shown by an Instagram post by director Andrés Muschietti. Keaton will take on the character after almost 30 years.
Last month, Michael Keaton set the fandom on fire when he implied in an interview with Deadline that he might not do The Flash because of his coronavirus concerns. The actor said that COVID1-9 worries him more than anything. He admitted that he is more concerned about the virus than anything else.
He is keeping a closer eye on the COVID situation in the UK than any other news item. At the time, Keaton was living out of town and all because he was really worried about the novel virus. He claimed it was his first thing on all projects. He looks at it and says, “Will this thing literally kill me?” And if not, they can talk about making a movie.
Michael Keaton made his debut as Bruce Wayne in 1989 and released Batman, directed by Tim Burton. They worked together again in the 1992 film Batman Returns. Then Keaton dropped the cloak and hood while Burton made two more films, Batman Forever and Batman & Robin, with George Clooney as the billionaire detective.
The Flash movie also brings back Ben Affleck as Batman. Both Michael Keaton and Affleck will portray their respective versions of the superhero. The Flash cast also includes Kiersey Clemons as Iris West, Maribel Verdú as Nora Allen, Ron Livingston as Henry Allen and Sasha Calle as Supergirl.
