Michael Keaton Upset To Learn Ryan Reynolds Crossed Over To Marvel

Batman star Michael Keaton was kind of upset when he learned that Deadpool star Ryan Reynolds also crossed over to Marvel. Keaton had an interview with Jimmy Kimmel, and the host had to break the news to the actor. Keaton’s response was a bit colorful, but he understood it. Keaton has been in both Spider-Man: Homecoming and the Dark Knight’s beginnings in movies. While Ryan Reynolds absolutely nailed his Deadpool performance for Marvel, and he was also the Green Lantern for DC. Fans will see more actors pop up between the two franchises in future projects as more of them get announced every day. For Keaton, he says he won’t try and learn a lot about these two separate universes so that he won’t get confused more than he already is. For some fans, he’s the best Batman actor, but clearly isn’t taking himself seriously since he helped make the superhero genre popular.

"There's a lot I can't say because I don't know what's going on," said Keaton. "I'm in two worlds, aren't I? I'm in the Marvel world and DC." Then Jimmy Kimmel told Keaton that Reynolds also crossed over to other worlds and he responded with a “Really?” and then added an expletive for comedic effect.

"I get confused, I don't really know a lot of the lore. Sometimes I show up and… Do you want to know the truth? You can't handle the truth. I like it, I enjoy it. But, sometimes I'm just not up to speed."

The Flash director, Andy Muscietti, revealed that he begged Keaton to join the film. During a panel at DC FanDome China, he told the audience how he managed to persuade him to join the film.

"I think Keaton was honored to come to do this character again. But mainly we sent him a great script, and that is probably the thing that got him interested," the director explained during the panel. "It's more complex than this...we gave him a great script and I promised him great direction. And that was about it."

The Flash is set to release on November 4, 2022, starring Ezra Miller, Ben Affleck, Michael Keaton, and Sasha Calle.
