Michael Keaton is a cult favorite amongst diehard Batman fans and it's not too hard to understand why. He, along with director Tim Burton reinvented Batman on the big screen and gave the character some much-need edge that was something comic book fans at that time were longing for. They also pretty much set the tone for other superhero films that followed after the release of 1989's Batman.

Now, with all the debate as to who exactly is the best version of the Dark Knight, if you'll ask Keaton who he thinks the best on-screen Batman is, there's no doubt in his mind that it will always be him. In a recent appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live, Keaton revealed that he considers himself the best Batman and even jokingly said that he still keeps the bat-suit just in case something comes up in his neighborhood. Check it out here:

The acting legend also shed some light regarding his involvement in Ezra Miller's TheFlash film. He did confirm that negotiations are happening but nothing is official yet. "We're having discussions, as they say. We're talking about it. We'll see if it happens," he said.

Of course, a lot of secrecy surrounds these superhero films so it's only natural for Keaton to keep mum about his true involvement in the film. But the official concept artwork for the film which debuted last August is a dead giveaway that Keaton will in fact make his triumphant return as the caped crusader. By the way, going back to the argument, if you'd ask me, Michael Keaton will always be the best Batman in my book.
