Before his return as Batman in The flash next year, Michael Keaton celebrates its milestone 70th birthday with fans around the world. Over the past few decades, Keaton has appeared in a variety of lead roles, although he is especially loved for his role as Bruce Wayne in Tim Burton’s Batman and its follow-up Batman returns. The flash brings him back to the role on the big screen for the third time in 2022.
Natural, Batman fans are ecstatic about Keaton’s return to the role. Although various actors appeared in the years that followed as the Dark Knight, many people had already appealed to Keaton to return in a new film as an older Bruce. Some fans suggested he was in a live-action adaptation of Batman Beyond, who would let him serve as a mentor to a teenager who adopts the Batman cloak.
Batman Beyond: The Movie was not intended, at least not at the moment, but Keaton’s return was still in the cards. Thanks to a multiple storyline in the heart of The Flash, Keaton can return as the same Batman he played in the Tim Burton movies, although Ben Affleck serves as Batman of the DCEU. Both the incarnations of the character will appear in the same film, although Affleck will be the last appearance in the role. There are also rumors that Keaton will continue to appear as Batman in other DC movies, such as the DCEU’s version of Samuel L. Jackson’s Nick Fury.
Meanwhile, Keaton will also be seen in the upcoming Marvel movie Morbius. He will repeat his Spider-Man: Homecoming role as Vulture, although it is for a separate continuity outside the MCU. If you get confused keeping up with all these multi-universal variations and characters, you are not alone. Keaton told THR last month how long it will take to explain to Marvel people how he will do it.
“I nod as if I know what the fuck they’re talking about. I say, ‘Uh-huh. “And I think, ‘You might as well explain quantum physics to me now,'” Keaton recalls. “All I know is that I only know my boyfriend. And I know the basics. ‘So finally they look at me, and they just start laughing. They say,’ You do not know what we’re talking about? I said, ‘No, I do not know, not an idea you are talking about.’ “
When he quickly got to the multiverse, Keaton was excited to return as Bruce Wayne The flash after reading Christina Hodson’s screenplay. The actor said: ‘Honestly, in the back of my mind, I always thought,’ I bet I can go back and nail the mother ‘. And I thought, ‘Now that they’re asking me, let’s see if I can do it.
We’ll all see Keaton’s return as Batman unfold The flash will be released on November 4, 2022. Before that time he’s back as Vulture Morbius on January 28, 2022. For the first time, fans are celebrating the Hollywood legend’s 70th birthday, and you can see what the Batman fans say on Twitter about the event.
