UPDATED: Above is a tease of the real Batman’s return in The Flash. During The Flash movie’s DC FanDome panel Andy Muschietti revealed first look concept art. Looks like no radical changes, which is good.
PREVIOUSLY: After it was confirmed that Michael Keaton would return as Batman in upcoming movie The Flash, many of us wondered if it’d only be some pissant cameo.
Speaking with Vanity Fair, Andy Muschietti said Keaton’s role is a ‘substantial’ part and went on to explain how his Flash movie brings together all the disparate DC Comics adaptations:
“This movie is a bit of a hinge in the sense that it presents a story that implies a unified universe where all the cinematic iterations that we’ve seen before are valid,” Muschietti said. “It’s inclusive in the sense that it is saying all that you’ve seen exists, and everything that you will see exists, in the same unified multiverse.”
It has also been confirmed that Ben Affleck’s Batman will appear in the film. Although to be honest, Keaton’s appearance has already made this movie a success.
