Ezra Miller’s Flash And Michael Keaton’s Batman Were Already Connected In The Arrowverse

It’s been revealed that Michael Keaton could be turning up as Batman in Ezra Miller’s The Flash movie, yet they were already connected via Arrowverse.

It was revealed a few days ago that Michael Keaton is now in early talks with Warner Bros. Pictures to return as Batman in the DCEU.

He played the Caped Crusader in the Tim Burton Batman movies and people have been wondering whether he’d ever return to the role.

We already know that Keaton is not afraid of playing bird-based characters and seems to enjoy starring in comic book movies.

However, even though this news is very exciting, we shouldn’t really be surprised that discussions are happening.

There have been rumours that Keaton would be open to the possibility of returning as Batman for years now.

Back when The CW was planning its massive Arrowverse crossover event, Crisis On Infinite Earths, it was revealed they were talking to Keaton.

The idea was to have him turn up as Bruce Wayne in one of the Multiverses.

This actually makes perfect sense, and even though the deal kind of fell through (Keaton was never going to appear on The CW), his version of Bruce Wayne was still hinted towards in the crossover event.

They spent a very brief second in the Tim Burton Batman-verse in the crossover event.

And then, we ended up seeing Ezra Miller’s The Flash meet Grant Gustin’s version of the character.

It seems as though all these characters are now linked through the Multiverse, and that’s pretty exciting.

The rumours are that Warner Bros. is going to bring the Multiverse into the movies, which will be how Keaton’s Wayne and Miller’s Allen will meet.
