Jeffrey Dean Morgan Still Eager to Play Flashpoint Batman

We're all excited about The Flash movie that will feature two different Batmans. But is it possible that we could see Flashpoint Batman as well? Jeffrey Dean Morgan has admitted that he still wants to play Thomas Wayne again in the DC Extended Universe but says he's running out of time.

Morgan played Thomas in the opening sequence of Zack Snyder's Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and fans are convinced that it's perfect casting. After all, the former Supernatural star could easily play the Flashpoint version of the character who becomes Batman after the death of Bruce Wayne. However, Morgan told CinePOP that DC needs to make a decision soon.

"Look, the top of my list has always been Batman. That's always been my favorite superhero and talking about Flashpoint has been very fun. I get asked about it a lot. I love the story of Flashpoint," Morgan said. He then added that the casting should happen soon since he's not getting any younger.

"I suppose I probably have a two or three-year window and then I'm gonna be too old. There's no way. Look, I'm available. Everybody knows I'm available. I say I'm available, I've been saying it for five years. We'll see what happens," Morgan concluded.

Personally, we would love to see Morgan as Flashpoint Batman, preferably in The Flash. After all, it's the perfect film to introduce the character. On the other hand, the movie already has two Batmans (Ben Affleck and Michael Keaton) so things could get complicated. Nevertheless, we're hoping it will all work out in the end.

For now, there has been no confirmation that Thomas Wayne will appear in The Flash. However, this could be announced soon considering that the film is currently in production.

The Flash will be directed by Andy Muschietti and also stars Ezra Miller as Barry Allen and Kiersey Clemmons as Iris West. New cast members include Sasha Calle as Supergirl, Maribel Verdú as Nora Allen, and Ron Livingstone, who will take over the role of Henry Allen after Billy Crudup departed the project.

The Flash is scheduled for release on November 4, 2022.
