BREAKING: Our First Look At Michael Keaton as Bruce Wayne In The Flash Movie

When Michael Keaton was rumored to be returning to the role of Batman/Bruce Wayne, it took the comic book world by storm. After all, Keaton was last seen as The Caped Crusader in 1992. Since then, theories had surfaced as to how his Batman incarnation would be depicted. Dark Knight Returns? The Bruce Wayne from Batman Beyond? De-aged via CGI?

Big Screen Leaks tweeted this photo from the set of The Flash. While it may not give us the answer as to how Batman will look, it does seem to imply that this will be an older Bruce Wayne and not one that is de-aged to look like his 1989 incarnation.

What do you think fans? Dark Knight Returns? Batman Beyond? Or just Old Man Bruce?

The Flash is scheduled for release on November 4 2022 and will star Ezra Miller as The Flash/Barry Allen, Ben Affleck as Bruce Wayne/Batman, and Ron Livingston as Henry Allen. It is directed by Andy Muschietti.

Jennifer Morrison to voice Catwoman

She first gained national prominence in the FOX drama House as Dr. Cameron. She played The Chosen One, and The Dark One, Emma Swan in ABC’s Once Upon A Time. She’s even been Captain Kirk’s mother in 2009’s Star Trek reboot.

This summer, Jennifer Morrison will add another geek-cred role to her resume. She will provide the voice of Selina Kyle, aka Catwoman, in the upcoming animated adaption of the famous Batman story Hush.

Based on the year-long comic story of the same name, Hush will also feature Jason O’Mara (Agents Of SHIELD) as Batman, Rainn Wilson (The Office) as Lex Luthor, and real life husband and wife Jerry O’Connell and Rebecca Romijn as Superman and Lois Lane respectively.

Hush was notable for being a fan favorite story written by Smallville co-creator Jeph Loeb, and drawn by comics legend Jim Lee. In it, the mysterious villain Hush sets into motion several actions to sabotage and destroy Batman from afar. It also featured the first “In Continuity” fight between Batman and Superman.

No exact date has been officially released, but previews have been leaked to the internet. Check one out below.

Batman: Hush will be produced by Warner Bros. animation, and will have a PG-13 rating.
