TRADE REPORT: Keaton Will Suit Up as Batman in FLASHPOINT

According to THR‘s HEAT VISION, Michael Keaton will not just play an older Bruce Wayne in THE FLASH/FLASHPOINT, but will suit up as Batman as well.

This jibes with the info that BOF has received about Keaton’s appearance in the film — which is way more than a simple cameo as some might expect.  Also, if a deal can be made, Keaton’s Batman/Bruce Wayne will likely be used to springboard another solo Bat-centric movie featuring another member of the Batman Family (Batgirl, perhaps?).

The THRHV blurb also confirms that the Thomas Wayne “Flashpoint Batman” — played by Jeffery Dean Morgan in a BATMAN v SUPERMAN cameo — is not in the script and will not appear in the film.  BOF can confirm the idea was kicked around at some point — as was the KINGDOM COME and THE DARK KNIGHT RETURNS versions of Bruce Wayne/Batman — but was nixed once the return of Keaton’s Batman became possible.

It’s going to be really cool seeing Keaton in a Batsuit again!  Of course, what kind of Batsuit he’ll be sporting remains to be seen.  One with a KINGDOM COME vibe, maybe?
