Michael Keaton Unsure Whether He’ll Play Batman In The Flash

Michael Keaton has revealed that he’s still a bit unsure on whether he will be playing Batman in the upcoming The Flash movie, which sounds worrying to me.

Keaton revealed this slightly depressing news during a recent interview with Deadline.

It had been revealed that Michael Keaton was going to be returning at Batman in the upcoming The Flash movie.

The film is actually getting ready to go into production over in the UK right now.

However, it’s sounding like Keaton might be getting cold feet with regards to his proposed return at The Batman in The Flash film.

This is actually due to something which has been causing havoc in the entertainment industry which is called Covid-19.

Here’s what Michael Keaton had to say about whether he would be playing Batman in The Flash film or not:

No, you know what it is? I am needing a minute to think about it because I’m so fortunate and blessed, I got so much going on now. I’m really into work right now. I don’t know why, but I am, and so, yeah, I mean, you know, to tell you the truth, somewhere on my iPad is an iteration of the whole Flash thing that I haven’t had time yet…I called them and said, I have to be honest with you. I can’t look at anything right now. I’m so deep into this thing I’m doing. Also, I’m prepping a thing I’m producing and getting ready to do down the road in the fall that I’ll be in, and I feel responsible to that. So, yeah, there is that. I’m not being cute or coy. If I talked about it, I’ll be just bullshitting you. I don’t really know. I have to look at the last draft. To be honest with you, you know what worries me more than anything about all this stuff?

Keaton then added:

It’s Covid. I’m more concerned. I keep my eye more on the Covid situation in the UK than anything. That will determine everything, and so that’s why I’m living outside the city here on 17 acres, staying away from everybody, because the Covid thing has got me really concerned. So, that’s my first thing about all projects. I look at it and go, is this thing going to kill me, literally? And you know, if it doesn’t, then we talk.
