Two of the highly popular and successful superstars have been roped in to play the role of the iconic and our favorite superhero in black, the Batman, in the upcoming multiverse franchise spanning ‘The Flash’.

Reportedly, Michael Keaton, 69, and Ben Affleck, 49, are all set to portray Batman in director Andy Muschetti’s upcoming film, although Affleck will be replaced by Robert Pattinson in the next waiting movie in queue, ‘The Batman’.

After having starred in Tim Burton’s DC movie franchises, ‘Batman’ in 1989 and ‘Batman Returns’ in 1992, as the titular superhero, Michael Keaton is all set to reprise this role once again in ‘The Flash’, and feels highly of his comeback, as he is both excited and nervous at the same time to pull of this role with perfection.

In conversation with ‘The Hollywood Reporter’, Keaton opened up on his experience of working in ‘The Flash’ sharing, “I had to read [the script] more than three times to go, ‘Wait, how does this work?’ They had to explain that to me several times.”

Opening up more about his character in the film, the actor revealed, “What’s really interesting is how much more I got [Batman] when I went back and did him. I get this on a whole other level now. I totally respect it. I respect what people are trying to make. I never looked at it like, ‘Oh, this is just a silly thing.’ It was not a silly thing when I did Batman. But it has become a giant thing, culturally. It’s iconic. So I have even more respect for it because, what do I know? This is a big deal in the world to people. You’ve got to honor that and be respectful of that. Even I go, ‘Jesus, this is huge.’ ”

Meanwhile, ‘The Flash’ is all set to go on floors on June 3, 2022.
