Fans were shocked back in June when it was announced that Keaton was reprising his role as Batman for The Flash. It was quickly announced that Keaton would be playing the same Batman he did in previous movies and would actually suit up rather than just being a side character. Little information has come out about Keaton’s role since, but DC Films president Walter Hamada later revealed that there will be “two different film sagas involving Batman — played by two different actors — running at the same time.”
A previous report indicated that Keaton was set to take over as the main Batman of the DCEU since Robert Pattinson’s film is a stand-alone movie, but that now appears to not be the case.
After the internet went ablaze with reports that Keaton was returning for multiple films in the DCEU, Brooks Barnes (the New York Times reporter who originally interviewed Hamada) clarified his statement on Keaton’s involvement in future DC films. In a recent tweet, Barnes explained that Keaton has only been cast in The Flash and that the actor hasn’t been confirmed for multiple Batman films.
