Michael Keaton Refuses to Discuss Batman Role in The Flash

Fans have been looking forward to seeing The Flash as it would mark the long-awaited return of Michael Keaton as the Caped Crusader around 30 years after he last played the character in Batman Returns. During the DC FanDome event last month, they gave us a quick glimpse of his return and now people are more curious about what he'll do in the film.

Per Screen Rant, in a recent interview with The Sunday Times, when Keaton was asked about his return as Batman in The Flash, he refused to discuss anything about it. He said, "I’ll be frank, I don’t want to talk about it because it takes the fun away." He did however share that it took "a fair amount" of persuading him to return to the role.

It is understandable that Keaton refuses to discuss the role for now since it's still a year away before the film's release in theaters. Also, he obviously wants to abide by the NDA that he signed on in which he can't spoil any significant details regarding the film. He also doesn't want to ruin the surprise for us and wants to keep it as mysterious as it is.

There has been a lot of speculations surrounding The Flash as it is expected to venture into the multiverse and there are theories around that we might see other DC characters from past films pop up for a surprise appearance. Whenever you discuss the multiverse, anything is possible so it really won't be surprising the very least if we'll learn later on that there will be some major surprises throughout the film.

Keaton won't be the only Batman who is going to make an appearance in the film. Ben Affleck is also set to make his return as the DCEU's Batman and it is expected to be his last appearance on the role. Sasha Calle's Supergirl will also have a major role. The film is directed by It director Andy Muschietti.
