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.

Hartley Sawyer Has Been Fired From the Flash Over Misogynist and Racist Tweets

Hartley Sawyer as Elongated Man

Hartley Sawyer won’t be returning to the next season of The Flash. The actor has been fired due to misogynist and racist tweets that were discovered this past week. The tweets were from before he joined The CW series and make reference to sexual assault, as well as being racist and homophobic. Sawyer has since deleted his Twitter account.

A statement released by The CW, producers Warner Bros. TV and Berlanti Productions and executive producer Eric Wallace said:

Hartley Sawyer will not be returning for season seven of The Flash. In regards to Mr. Sawyer’s posts on social media, we do not tolerate derogatory remarks that target any race, ethnicity, national origin, gender, or sexual orientation. Such remarks are antithetical to our values and polices, which strive and evolve to promote a safe, inclusive and productive environment for our workforce.

Showrunner Wallace tweeted:

This morning, many of you learned that Hartley Sawyer will not be returning for season seven of The Flash. Concerning his social media tweets, they broke my heart and made me mad as hell. And they’re indicative of the larger problem in our country.

The tweets referenced spousal abuse, rape, and not making racist tweets in fear of Al Sharpton.

Sawyer apologized on Instagram:

My words, irrelevant of being meant with an intent of humor, were hurtful, and unacceptable. I am ashamed I was capable of these really horrible attempts to get attention at that time. I regret them deeply. This was not acceptable behavior. These were words I threw out at the time with no thought or recognition of the harm my words could do, and now have done today.

Sawyer joined The Flash in 2017 as Ralph Dibny, the superhero known as Elongated Man. He became a series regular in 2018.
