Michael Keaton returns to the role of Batman. The 69-year-old actor will be seen in the new film The Flash , which will be released at the end of next year , according to The Wrap .

Producer Warner Bros. previously hinted to be in talks with Keaton. However, last month, the actor said in an interview that he may be renouncing the role in connection with his concerns about the corona pandemic.

Keaton first played Batman in 1989, when he appeared in director Tim Burton’s eponymous blockbuster. The last time he played Bruce Wayne was almost 30 years ago, in 1992’s Batman Returns .

The recording of The Flash started this week in London. The film should be in theaters on November 4.
