Michael Keaton is in Talks to Return to Batman. It “May Not Happen.”

Batman 1989

Deadline is reporting that Michael Keaton is in talks to return to the role of Batman which he appeared in two films, Batman in 1989 and Batman Returns. This is talks and often talks go nowhere, it’s not a done deal like so many clickbait sites are reporting. Even Deadline says “this deal may not happen.”

Keaton’s Batman would be a “Nick Fury-like role” starting in The Flash starring Ezra Miller. It would have him take on the role in other films like Batgirl. It also doesn’t impact Matt Reeve’s reboot The Batman which stars Robert Pattinson which may pick up the storyline from Batman Returns according to Deadline.

Andrés Muschietti is directing The Flash from a script by Birds of Prey writer Christina Hodson. Barbara Muschietti and Michael Disco are producing.

DC’s cinematic universe is taking a different approach than the Marvel one. Instead of one narrative, DC is taking an all approach. Every film, tv show, animated film, are all part of a multiverse. Each story can take place on another version of Earth and crossover when needed. Keaton’s Batman connected with the DC television world as it was shown in the recent event “Crisis on Infinite Earths.” Then, Miller’s Flash also appeared on the show making all of the entities connected. This approach allows DC more freedom to create standalone films, “hey they take place on a different Earth,” reboot franchises, or a larger vision as was originally attempted with Batman v Superman, Justice League, Aquaman, and Wonder Woman.
