Christian Bale could be Batman again, but it depends on Michael Keaton
Warner Bros plans Michael Keaton to play Batman again, but in case they don’t come to an arrangement they already have a plan b
Keaton, 68, played Bruce Wayne in 1989 and 1992. He is now wanted for the Andy Muschietti-directed film that will explore in depth the possibilities of the DC Comics multiverse.
This film directed by Andy Muschietti is scheduled for release on June 3, 2022 and will be based on the comic book classic Flashpoint. A plot that explores the consequences of time travel and altering the past to create alternative realities. Something the young Barry Allen (Miller) does, who uses his powers to go back in time and save his mother and prevent his father from going to jail unfairly.
The young man achieves his goal, but the consequences are disastrous. And it is that by changing the course of history Barry creates an almost apocalyptic alternative reality in which Amazons and Atlanteans, captained by Wonder Woman and Aquaman respectively, maintain a terrible war that is about to destroy the planet. For his part, Superman is a weak alien under government control who is subjected to various experiments at a military base and Bruce Wayne is dead.
Thus, the studio wants to make Keaton the mentor of his multiverse and that he be present in several films and interact with various characters. A figure that would be very similar to Nick Fury’s in the Marvel Universe.
Negotiations are just beginning. However, in case they do not come to fruition, the producer would go for Christian Bale, 46, to make her the Dark Knight again, according to the site We Got This Covered. He played it in three movies, in 2005, 2008 and 2012.
