Warner Bros. has released a cast list for ‘Batgirl’ that reveals Michael Keaton will appear in the film.
While the announcement lists Keaton alongside Leslie Grace, J.K. Simmons, Brendan Fraser and Jacob Scipio, it doesn’t state that he is reprising his role of Bruce Wayne/Batman but it is pretty safe to assume that he will once again be portraying ‘The Dark Knight’. After thirty years, Keaton is returning to the role in ‘The Flash next year so it would be incredibly strange if he were to take a different role in a Batman related film.
Adil El Arbi and Bilall Fallah, the co-director of the film, recently said that the real Batman would appear in the film but stopped short of naming Keaton. It has been rumoured the actor has signed on to play Bruce Wayne in multiple upcoming DC projects in some capacity but Warner Bros. have remained tight lipped.
‘The Flash’, which looks to be a reality bending film, should start to give us some answers when it is released on 4th November 2022. ‘Batgirl’, which is filming now, is due for release at the end of 2022.
