When The New York Times reported that DC Films’ plans to have Keaton reprise his role as Batman in “The Flash,” some fans took it as Keaton would be Batman permanently in the DC Extended Universe.
But Brooks Barnes, the writer of the piece, has clarified that Keaton will only be in “one film.”
“Been offline (moving apartments) and return to see this Michael Keaton craziness,” he wrote. “I was referring to the *one film* that Keaton has been announced as being in, not a set of his own Batman films. If I had info on him beyond ‘The Flash,” I would have obviously put it in my article.”
Meanwhile, “The Flash” doesn’t come out until November 2022, so fans will have to wait.
