People have been wondering if Barry Keoghan is going to be in The Batman or if his casting is just another fan speculation. However, it looks like the Eternals star's involvement in the upcoming Robert Pattinson flick has finally been confirmed. A new report reveals that Keoghan is now officially listed as one of the cast members of the highly-anticipated DC film.

There have been numerous reports about Barry Keoghan's possible involvement in The Batman. Although the Dunkirk actor himself has repeatedly denied being in the movie, Warner Bros. UK has just confirmed that Keoghan is, in fact, part of the cast. An official 2022 Movie Preview for the studio added Keoghan to the cast of the Matt Reeves flick in the list of features that will be released next year.

At this point, it is no longer a surprise that Keoghan is confirmed for The Batman. But who will he be playing in the upcoming film? A previous report pointed out that two versions of The Batman were being screened and that one version reportedly features a surprise actor. It has been speculated that the actor is Keoghan and that he is either playing the Joker or Jim Gordon's partner Stanley Merkel.

We may not be sure about Keoghan's character but it's safe to assume that the version of The Batman that will be released theatrically will feature his mysterious character. Perhaps we'll get more details about his role when the new trailer for the film is finally dropped.


The Batman will also star Zoë Kravitz, Paul Dano, Jeffrey Wright, John Turturro, Peter Sarsgaard, Andy Serkis, and Colin Farrell. It follows Bruce Wayne as he investigates the Riddler, who is killing Gotham's elite and also appears to know Bruce's secret identity. The film is currently scheduled for release on March 4, 2022.
