Michael Keaton Is in Negotiation to Reprise Batman Role in 'The Flash'

Warner Bros. bosses are reported to be eyeing the actor, who portrayed the caped crusader in 1989's 'Batman' and its sequel 'Batman Returns', for Ezra Miller's stand-alone superhero film.

AceShowbiz - Michael Keaton is in talks to reprise the role of Batman for the planned "The Flash" movie.

The "Birdman" star first donned the cape and cowl for 1989's "Batman" and its sequel, "Batman Returns", and now Warner Bros. bosses reportedly want him back for Ezra Miller's stand-alone superhero film, in which the "Justice League" actor will return as the titular speedster.

According to TheWrap.com, the storyline will introduce viewers to the idea of the multiverse, in which multiple versions of the same characters exist in alternate universes, as explained in the DC Comics - and therefore won't affect the plot outlined in director Matt Reeves' "The Batman", starring Robert Pattinson as the Caped Crusader.

If Keaton signs on, he could also feature in other planned DC movies, such as "Batgirl".

Andres Muschietti is taking charge of "The Flash" from a script by "Birds of Prey: And the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn" writer Christina Hodson.
