Michael Keaton casts doubt on playing Batman again: ‘We’ll see what happens’


Michael Keaton won't say definitely if he'll be stepping back into the Batsuit to play the Caped Crusader again.

While Keaton was previously said to be in talks to reprise his role of Batman in the upcoming film "The Flash" starring Ezra Miller, the 69-year-old is keeping fans guessing.

“With [the ‘Batman’ reprise], I’m going to see what happens here,” he told Deadline. “This is going to be kind of fun. We’ll see what happens.”

Casting more doubt on his return to the role, he also insinuated he's been too busy to fully focus on joining "The Flash."

“To tell you the truth, somewhere on my iPad is an iteration of the whole Flash thing that I haven’t had time yet … I called them and said, ‘I have to be honest with you. I can’t look at anything right now. I’m so deep into this thing I’m doing," Keaton told the outlet. “I’m not being cute or coy. If I talked about it, I’ll be just bulls****ing you."

The actor made light of having to don the superhero costume again and joked how it would be a few sizes larger than when he last played the iconic character nearly 30 years ago.

“You return something and say, ‘What is this?’” Keaton said of having to pick the costume up at the dry cleaners. “How come you gave me The Hulk’s outfit?”

Keaton previously played Bruce Wayne in Tim Burton's "Batman" in 1989 and the 1992 sequel "Batman Returns."

It was previously reported that Ben Affleck, who played the Dark Knight in "Batman V. Superman: Dawn of Justice," "Justice League" and "Zack Snyder's Justice League," would also be making an appearance as Batman in "The Flash."

"The Flash" is set to hit theaters November 4th, 2022.

Meanwhile, Robert Pattinson is playing the superhero in "The Batman," a new trilogy from director Matt Reeves with the first film set to hit theaters March 4, 2022.
