MICHAEL KEATON TO REPRISE HIS ROLE AS BATMAN!!!!!!!!!!

 

Not a drill! Not an imaginary story! Keaton is in talks to return to his role as Batman in the Flash movie - which looks like it's going to be based on the "Flashpoint" story line, meaning he might well not be the only Batman.

 

Given the less than positive views regarding the DCEU's output so far I wouldn't be surprised if they were to use the Flashpoint concept as a bit of a soft reboot - allowing them to keep the bits that worked, (so Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Harley Quinn and Shazam) and ditch everything else. 

 

Whatever they do, the idea that I can see Keaton say "I'm Batman" on screen again makes this aging Batfan very, very happy indeed.

 

 

REST IN PEACE JOEL SCHUMACHER

 

We may well have been complaining about Batman Forever and Batman and Robin for a quarter of a century, but looking back there's good in both of them. And even if there wasn't, this was also the man behind The Lost Boys, possibly the best vampire movie ever made, St Elmo's Fire, and many other excellent movies.

 

He will be missed.
