THE FLASH: Michael Keaton Officially <font color="red">Confirmed</font> To Return As The BATMAN

Lost in the shuffle of all of today's The Flash news, it's finally been confirmed that Michael Keaton will indeed reprise his role as Batman '89 in Andy Muschietti's upcoming DC Comics movie.

While Michael Keaton (Spider-Man: Homecoming; Spotlight) was noncommittal when asked about his Batman return last month, The Wrap has obtained official confirmation from Keaton's talent agency, ICM Partners, that the Academy Award-nominated actor will indeed reprise his role as the Dark Knight of Gotham in Andy Muschietti's The Flash

The film will mark the first time in thirty years that Keaton has donned the cape and cowl, having last appeared as the character in 1992's Batman Returns

Ezra Miller will headline the feature as the titular Scarlet Speedstar, with a supporting cast consisting of Kiersey Clemons as Iris West, newcomer Sasha Calle as Kara Zor-El/Supergirl, Maribel Verdú as Nora Allen, Ron Livingston as Henry Allen, Saoirse-Monica Jackson in an undisclosed role, Rudy Mancuso in an undisclosed role, and Ben Affleck as Bruce Wayne/Batman (2016). 

Muschietti (ItIt Chapter Two) is directing the upcoming DC blockbuster, with a screenplay from Christina Hodson (BumblebeeBirds of Prey). Plot details remain locked away in the speed force, but the story is rumored to follow Barry as he travels back in time to prevent his mother's untimely demise, which has disastrous consequences for the entire DC multiverse. 

Filming commenced today in the United Kingdom, and Muschietti commemorated the long-awaited moment by sharing the film's official title card. 

The Flash is currently set to zip into theaters on November 4, 2022.
