Andy Muschietti, director of the upcoming film by The Flash for the DCEU, has shared a new image on the return of Michael Keaton like Batman.
Muschietti summoned fans to his Instagram page this Friday when he posted a new image of the film, along with loads of photos from the set of The Flash, which officially went into production last April. The last snapshot offers a look at Keaton’s classic Batman costume, with a few drops of blood splattered on the iconic Bat Man symbol. You can see it below.
Muschietti shared the image without a caption, so lDetails of Keaton’s role in The Flash remain scant for now. However, he is one of two Batman slated to appear in the film, as Ben Affleck is also set to reprise his role by Bruce Wayne. Muschietti previously said that Affleck would be responsible for offering “a very substantial part of the emotional impact of the film. “.
Along with Keaton and Affleck, the cast also includes Ezra Miller as Barry Allen / The Flash, Kiersey Clemons as Iris West, Maribel Verdú as Allen’s mother, Nora, and reportedly Ron Livingston as Allen’s father, replacing Billy Cudrup, who played Allen’s father in Justice League. Sasha Calle is also prepared to bring the Girl of Steel back to the big screen, as she has been cast as Supergirl in The Flash.
Considered as a version of the classic DC Flashpoint story, the story apparently “will restart everything” in the DC cinematic universe. “It’s going to be fun and exciting and there will be many DC characters“said producer Barbara Muschietti. “Flash is the superhero in this movie because he is the bridge between all these characters and timelines. And somehow, it resets everything and doesn’t forget anything. “.
Meanwhile, Matt Reeves has been working on the upcoming batman solo movie, which is said to also start from scratch, with a story set in the second year of our superhero’s career. The film is expected to be part of a trilogy, with the first installment starring Pattinson in the title role opposite Jeffrey Wright’s Commissioner Gordon, to Catwoman de Zoe Kravitz, Enigma by Paul Dano and Penguin by Colin Farrell.
Originally, Batman was slated for a premiere on June 25, 2021, but now will debut on March 4, 2022, due to the pandemic. The Flash is scheduled to arrive later that year, on November 4, 2022, after being pushed back from its original June 2022 release date.
