Michael Keaton, the famous actor who played the Batman cinematographic of Tim Burton in 1989 and that he would return shortly after in Batman Returns, will be re-donning the Dark Knight costume after almost 30 years since the last time in The Flash, the new DCEU movie that is currently being shot and of which we have already seen not a few images and videos leaked with more than one surprise. But going back to Keaton, the actor has conducted an extensive interview with The Hollywood Reporter analyzing your return to superhero cinema, ensuring that he always thought that one day he would be Batman again, making sense of his own joke “I’m Batman”.
The complicated thing about the multiverse
And is that Michael Keaton was so impressed by the script written by Christina Hodson (Birds of Prey) as per the director’s vision Andy Muschietti (author of the remake of It and its sequel) on the possibility of returning as Batman in The Flash. “Honestly, in the back of my head, I always thought, ‘I bet I could go back and nail that motherfucker‘. And then I thought: ‘Well, now that they ask me, let me see if I can do it,’ “says the actor.
Of course, Keaton admits that it was a bit difficult for him understand the whole plot of parallel universes and that justified his return to the big screen as Batman alongside Ben Affleck’s Batman. “I had to read it more than three times to say, ‘Wait, how does this work?’ They had to explain it to me several times. By the way, I’m not being arrogant, I hope, with this. I’m not saying it like, ‘I’m too groovy.’ I am stupid. There are a lot of things I don’t know, ”Keaton continues.
The actor does not conclude the interview without praise the work of Tim Burton with the first two installments of Batman, ensuring that the current superhero cinema began with his vision. “What Tim did changed everything. All that is seen now started with him. If you really think about what happened between 1989 and now, culturally, business and financially, it’s incredible, “says Michael Keaton.
