Batman Returns! Michael Keaton In Talks To Play Bruce Wayne In The Flash Movie 

After nearly 30 years, Michael Keaton is in talks to return to the role of Batman, to appear alongside Ezra Miller in Warner Bros.’ upcoming movie “The Flash,” TheWrap has learned exclusively. Talks with Keaton are in the very early stages, it is far from a sure thing, and can go either way. No details are currently available about how big or small Keaton’s role is.

That plot will introduce general audiences to the idea of the multiverse, one of the of core concepts underpinning DC Comics. For the non fanboy set, the multiverse refers to a shifting number of alternate universes that coexist within the larger reality depicted in DC comics. Originally created to explain various contradictory changes the company’s characters experienced over decades, it allows several different versions of the same characters to simultaneously exist and, occasionally, interact. Matt Reeves upcoming “The Batman” will not be affected and Robert Pattinson’s Bruce Wayne is still viewed as the future of the franchise.

One notable component is the idea that in every single universe, Earth is always home to a larger than normal number of superpowered heroes and villains whose actions often have galaxy-spanning consequences.

DC has been planting the seeds of the multiverse for the last several years. It was introduced in The CW’s “Arrowverse” franchise, with “Supergirl” and “Black Lightning” expressly established as being in separate universes from “Arrow,” “The Flash,” and “Legends of Tomorrow.” But most recently, during The CW’s crossover event “Crisis on Infinite Earths,” movies such as “Wonder Woman” and “Justice League” were confirmed as part of the Arrowverse multiverse when the Barry Allen played by Grant Gustin on The CW encountered Miller’s Barry Allen.

And while it’s still not known how the multiverse concept will play out in other future DC Comics movies, it certainly expands the available options for Warner Bros as it develops them. Just in case it wants to find a way to pit Joaquin Phoenix’s Joker against, say, the current version of Aquaman.

Keaton first played Batman/Bruce Wayne in Tim Burton’s 1989 blockbuster of the same name, a critical and financial success that changed how superhero films were viewed — and paved the way for the genre’s future box office domination. Keaton’s casting was initially controversial among fans, as he was primarily known for broad comedies. But his performance, particularly how he used his comedic background in his portrayal of Bruce Wayne to differentiate it from Batman, was widely praised and is now recognized as an seminal moment in comic book films.

Keaton last played Batman in 1992’s “Batman Returns,” but quit the role during development of a third film after Burton was pushed out as director and replaced with Joel Schumacher, who took the series in a campier direction with 1995’s “Batman Forever” and its much-reviled 1997 follow up “Batman & Robin.”

But “The Flash” will disregard the latter two entries entirely, and explore what Keaton’s version of Batman has been up since we last saw him. Loosely based on the 2011 DC Comics crossover event “Flashpoint” — previously announced as the film’s title at Comic-Con 2017 — the story sees Ezra Miller’s Barry Allen travel back in time to prevent the death of his mother. The result? Allen inadvertently creates another universe protected by Michael Keaton’s Batman, now 30 years older.

“It: Chapter Two” director Andrés Muschietti is set to direct “The Flash” movie from the latest draft of the script from “Birds of Prey” writer Christina Hodson. Barbara Muschietti and Michael Disco are producing.

Andy Muschietti Confirms The Flash Is His Next Film

Director Andy Muschietti has officially confirmed that The Flash will be his next film. This correlates with comments from the film’s star Ezra Miller who recently stated the speedster flick is “absolutely confirmed.”

Muschietti was making the rounds promoting IT: Chapter 2 when Fandango correspondent Nikki Novak asked if The Flash would be his next project, to which the director replied, “Yep.”

He also revealed that the film would not follow in IT’s footsteps in terms of featuring horror elements. “An element of horror? I don’t think so. What captivated me about the Flash is the human drama in it,” he said.“The human feelings and emotions that play in the drama [of it]. It’s going to be fun, too. I can’t promise that there will be any horror [elements in it], really, but it’s a beautiful human story.”

Muschietti’s IT: Chapter 2 opens September 6.

A new piece of promotional art for the upcoming season season of “The Flash” has debuted online, straight from The CW’s TCA presentation, and it features our first look at Teddy Sears (“Masters of Sex,” “Raising the Bar”) as Jay Garrick in a live-action recreation of “The Flash” issue #123.

Sears joins a growing list of new stars for the series also including Keiynan Lonsdale as Wally West, Michael Ironside as Lewis Snart, and Shantel VanSanten as Patty Spivot.

“The Flash” stars Grant Gustin as Barry Allen/The Flash, Candice Patton as Iris West, Rick Cosnett as Eddie Thawne, Danielle Panabaker as Caitlin Snow, Carlos Valdes as Cisco Ramon and Jesse L. Martin as Detective Joe West. It’s executive produced by Greg Berlanti, Andrew Kreisberg, David Nutter and Sarah Schechter.

Following the defeat of Barry Allen’s arch-nemesis Eobard Thawne (aka Reverse Flash), Team Flash quickly turned their attention to the singularity swirling high above Central City, which fans last saw consuming everything in its path. Armed with the heart of a hero and the ability to move at super speeds, Barry charged into the eye of the singularity, but will he actually be able to save his city from impending doom?

“The Flash” will premiere its second season on Tuesday, October 6 and 8 PM EST.

The Flash Costume Gets An Update For Season Two

The CW has released a new image of The Flash costume that will appear in season 2.

Following a pretty epic first season finale, “The Flash” season two aims to expand the small screen DC Universe. In fact, the plan is to go even further as Gustin previously revealed that season two will explore the multiverse. There’s also quite a few guest stars in store as, just last week, we learned that Michael Ironside will appear as Lewis Snart, the father of Wenworth Miller’s Leonard Snart (aka Captain Cold) and Peyton List’s Lisa Snart (aka Golden Glider).

Teddy Sears (“Masters of Sex,” “Raising the Bar”), meanwhile, is set to play Jay Garrick, well known to comic book fans as the first DC Comics character to take on the mantle of The Flash, while Shantel VanSanten will play police officer Patty Spivot, obsessed with metahumans and partners with Jesse L. Martin’s Detective Joe West.

Based on the characters from DC Comics, “The Flash” is from Bonanza Productions Inc. in association with Berlanti Productions and Warner Bros. Television. The series returns for season two on Tuesday, October 6, at 8/7c on The CW.
