It looks like the rumors are true. Michael Keaton has been asked to reprise the role of Batman in the upcoming Flash movie, but there\u2019s actually more to the news.\r\n\r\nTalking to Sean Chandler Talks About, Griffin Schiller has revealed that Keaton\u2019s appearance in the Flash movie is supposed to help set-up a Batman Beyond film, and what\u2019s more, it\u2019s said that one of Keaton\u2019s requests in the deal is that Tim Burton come back and direct the movie.\r\n\r\nOf course, nothing too serious has been set in stone and we should just take this with a grain of salt. If anything, while a Batman Beyond film may not be in the works yet, we do know that Keaton will be reprising the role of Batman, and there are certainly plans to move forward with that comeback.\r\n\r\n \r\n\r\nIf you ask me, Burton isn\u2019t really the director I want to take on Neo-Gotham. I haven\u2019t really been a fan of his later films, and his style is very specific that I don\u2019t think it would fit in the \u2018cyber punk\u2019 aesthetic of Batman Beyond. If you ask me, Denis Villenueve could probably handle it, but I doubt that he would want to work on a franchise film granted his past few movies.\r\n\r\nThen again, if Burton has his own idea of what his new Gotham would look like, I say he should give it a shot; I just don\u2019t expect it to feel like the Batman Beyond that fans loved.\r\n\r\nFor now, fans wait for the release of The Flash on June 2, 2022.
