The actor explained the situation …
It’s been a while since it was announced that The Flash movie will feature Michael Keaton’s return as Batman. However, the actor, who played the hero in the Tim Burton films, said that was not yet confirmed.
According to ComicBook, Keaton is still waiting to read The Flash’s final script to make the decision. Another element that may have an impact on the actor’s involvement in the film is the COVID-19 pandemic.
“If I’m talking about Batman, I’m just going to cheat on you. I really don’t know how it will be, I will have to read the last draft of the script again. The pandemic is also a problem. This is the first thing I evaluate on all projects. I stop and think, “Okay, is this thing going to kill me, literally?” If not, if it’s safe, we’ll talk about it. “
Keaton is 69 years old and part of the group at risk of worsening COVID-19. With the production of The Flash starting in April, the actor’s participation doesn’t seem really adequate. However, the vaccination process in the United States is underway and it should not be long before getting vaccinated.
The DC movie will star Ezra Miller as Barry Allen, Sasha Calle as Kara Zor-El, Kiersey Clemons as Iris West and Ben Affleck as Batman. The presence of Michael Keaton as another version of Batman is therefore uncertain.
The Flash hits theaters on November 4, 2022.
