‘The Flash’ Image Reveals New Look At Michael Keaton As Bruce Wayne

The Flash is set to feature the return of Michael Keaton as Batman after over thirty years. A brand new photo from the film shows off a more human side of the Caped Crusader.

There has been no shortage of merch revealed for The Flash film focusing on Michael Keaton’s return as Batman. Despite this, fans have yet to see Keaton take off his cowl in any official capacity for the film, with the only showing of the man beneath the mask being a few pieces of leaked merch. However, a new image from the film shows off Keaton’s Bruce Wayne in a brand new light, tossing aside the brooding scowl for a smirk. The full image can be seen below.

Despite his more expressive demeanor and the bright yellow bat symbol on his chest, DC Universe fans shouldn’t expect a cheerful version of Batman in The Flash. In the Flashpoint comic the film is based on, Barry Allen finds himself in a world where Batman is a feared lunatic that many people see as a killer. While it’s not likely fans will be seeing Keaton pick up a gun in the film, they should expect a slightly more reluctant hero who becomes inspired by Barry to do what’s right.

Who else is attached to the Flash movie?

Directed by Andy Muschietti from a script written by Birds of Prey scribe Christina Hodson, The Flash is inspired by the Flashpoint comic book storyline, which followed Barry Allen as he navigated an altered DC Universe. Written by Geoff Johns and penciled by Andy Kuber, Flashpoint radically altered the status of the DC Comics universe and led to the launch of the New 52 titles.

In addition to Ezra Miller, The Flash also features Michael Keaton and Ben Affleck as two separate versions of Batman, Ron Livingston as Henry Allen, Maribel Verdú as Nora Allen, Kiersey Clemons as Iris West, Michael Shannon as General Zod, Antje Traue as Faora-Ul and Sasha Calle as Supergirl. Saoirse-Monica Jackson, Rudy Mancuso and Luke Brandon Field are also on board in undisclosed roles.
