Michael Keaton Doesn't Know If He'll Be Back as Batman For 'The Flash' Movie

Michael Keaton is apparently not sure if his appearance in the upcoming The Flash movie will actually be happening.

It was reported last year that the 69-year-old actor would reprise his Batman role that he played in two movies, 1989′s Batman, and 1992′s Batman Returns.

In The Flash movie, there is a play for both Michael and Ben Affleck to play their Batman roles, with the two universes linking up.

However, Michael says he’s not fully committed to the movie yet.

“I called them and said, ‘I have to be honest with you. I can’t look at anything right now,’” he told Deadline in a new interview. “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 bulls**tting you. I don’t really know.”

Michael added that he’s been keeping an eye on the pandemic, especially in Europe.

“I keep my eye more on the Covid situation in the UK than anything,” he shared. “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.”

He continued, “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.”

The Flash movie has already lost another one of the cast members.
