According to a rumor released by the journalist Jeremy Conrad, Christian Bale can live Batman again in The Flash, case Michael Keaton, first involved in production, do not finalize the negotiation. Unlike the news of Keaton’s possible return on paper, which has a reliable basis, the new information should be considered as rumor. Conrad, who publishes information on websites DCEUmythic and MCUcosmic, has a history of successes and errors in publishing entertainment news.
According to the journalist, Bale is the second option of Warner Bros, but his involvement would still depend on the actor’s will. Previously, Bale had reiterated that he would not return to the role, honoring the director Christopher Nolan’s desire to limit himself to a trilogy.
Bale played the Batman in the trilogy of dark Knight Christopher Nolan, released between 2005 and 2012.
Information on Keaton’s involvement in The Flash was released last week. Like Flashpoint will adapt Ignition point, an iconic comic strip in which the Flash messes up the timeline by trying to go back in time and prevent the murder of his mother, it is possible that the film will show an older, bitter and violent Batman.
The director Andy Muschietti had already revealed that his feature would bring a “Different version” of the story found in the HQ Ignition point, also known as Flashpoint. The synopsis points to one of the first differences, since in the comic the heroes of Justice League they continue to exist, albeit in versions that are sometimes cruel and even evil. Formerly the actor Ezra Miller, who lives Barry Allen, spoke of the plot: “The plot follows Barry Allen / Flash’s time travel to prevent his mother’s murder. However, when he returns to the present, his mother is still alive but the world is a nightmare. The Justice League does not exist and Barry must do everything he can to fix things … or as close as possible ”.
After being postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic, The Flash is scheduled to hit theaters in June 3, 2022. The direction is Andy Muschietti, who commanded the two parts of It – The Thing.
