Michael Keaton Address Batgirl Cancellation, and Next Batman Appearance


After his teary speech at the SAG Awards after winning Limited Series Male Actor for Dopesick, Michael Keaton continued his awards march for playing Dr. Samuel Finnix with his first Emmy Primetime trophy last night for playing the part.


But all reporters wanted to know about was more Batman.


Asked backstage his thoughts on Warner Bros. Discovery axing Batgirl, a film in which we were also expected to see him reprise his Caped Crusader role, Keaton answered, “I think it was a business decision. It was a film, it was a good one.”


It was unclear if he was saying the business decision was “a good one,” or the movie, which David Zaslav said was “irredeemable.”



And when will moviegoers see Keaton as Batman again?


“Oh, a little later tonight,” joked Keaton. “No, I’m kidding. I don’t know. I really have no idea.”


There’s still a very good chance we’ll see him in The Flash, which after a series of controversial and criminal acts by actor Ezra Miller, has been rescheduled in theaters, June 23, 2023.

I'm not as much of a "CoMiCs NeEd MoAr DiVeRsItY & iNcLuSiOn" advocate as my girlfriend often is, but we both love funny books, crispy bacon, straight bourbon and hip hop. Add yet, we never vote the same, so we cancel each other out... and that works perfectly in my book!
