AceShowbiz - After weeks of speculation and a series of teasers, Michael Keaton has eventually slipped back into his Batman role for "The Flash". First look at the actor's return as Bruce Wayne in the upcoming movie has surfaced online via a leaked set photo.
In the unofficial image, the 69-year-old was spotted during the filming of the Andy Muschietti-directed pic in London. He, however, wasn't donning his Batsuit as he was dressed as a civilian in a blue tailored suit with a familiar hairstyle.
Other set pictures featured Ezra Miller as Barry Allen and Sasha Calle in her full Supergirl costume. Both of them appeared to be shooting their scenes on the same set though they were not seen together, as they were seen standing near a similar pilar.
Prior to this, producer Barbara Muschietti confirmed Keaton's return for The Flash movie with a behind-the-scenes picture showing a chair with the name Bruce Wayne written on it. "My brother @andy_muschietti posted a chair, so I'm posting one too," she posted on Instagram on May 20. She added the hashtag #theflash.
Later, Andy Muschietti further teased the superhero's cameo appearance by offering a look at Keaton's Batman suit. In the image posted earlier this month, the Gotham superhero's logo is stained with blood.
In addition to Keaton's version, Ben Affleck's Batman, which has been featured alongside Miller's The Flash in "Justice League" and "Zack Snyder's Justice League", is said to make appearance in the solo movie.
This is believed to be made possible as the movie will reportedly create a unified universe that connects all previous cinematic adaptations of DC heroes. Plot details are still kept under wraps, but it is said that Barry will be traveling back in time to prevent his mother's murder, which brings unintentional consequences to his timeline.
Also joining the cast are Kiersey Clemons as Barry's love interest Iris West, and Maribel Verdu as well as Ron Livingston as Barry's mother and father respectively. "The Flash" movie is due in theaters on November 4, 2022.
