What a curious thing going on here. 26 years after we learn the best Batman is no more and that there shall only be various degrees of failures since, ranging from day-glo camp to turgid monotony, a new tease hits social media.

It’s a tease of Michael Keaton’s Batsuit from The Flash (2022), uploaded by filmmaker Andy Muschietti. Supposedly, the suit will be closer to the Returns suit than the ’89 suit. The new movie operates on a ‘multiverse’ premise, allowing the lead character to enter Keaton’s world.
What about the car and GOAT Batmobile? Actually, when Tim Burton was loosely attached to a third Batman, the Keatonmobile was said to be getting a redesign and, from memory, the concept art was horrible. The car looked like some type of insect with wheels. But in this movie, the original car is said to be returning.
Also not the blood on the suit. It would be ironic to see Batman return in an even bloodier fashion than he left. Remember, bean counters hated how ‘violent’ and dark Returns was, which was why we didn’t get our third movie.
The Flash is gonna sell like hot cakes. The Chinese Virus will be done, the droves shall begin again but more importantly, Keaton will make the whole thing a success and they’ll give him his own Dark Knight. Bet on it!
