Michael Keaton to reprise role as Batman for several DC-related film projects

Keaton last played the Dark Knight in Tim Burton's Batman Returns

Michael Keaton last played Batman in Tim Burton’s 1992 film Batman Returns, but it appears the 68-year-old actor is about to don the cape and cowl once again. The Hollywood Reporter reports that Keaton is in talks to play Bruce Wayne/Batman once again in Warner Bros.’ DC movie The Flash.

While it’s been a minute since Keaton suited up as Batman, the actor earned a Best Actor nomination for his role in the 2014 anti-super hero movie Birdman. Keaton, keeping with the winged character theme, also played Vulture in the 2017 Marvel film Spider-Man: Homecoming.

Keaton’s second run as Batman may not be short-lived, either. Reports indicate that he could appear as the character in several DC films.
