Keaton remains unsure if he’s taking on the Batman role again.
While speaking to Deadline in an interview, he said, “If I talk about [Batman], I’ll just be bulls***ting you. I don’t really know, I’ll have to look at the last draft.” The actor also mentioned that COVID-19 conditions have been one of the major deciding factors for him in taking on projects. Elaborating on how the pandemic has changed his decision to take on films, he said, “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”, via Deadline. The Flash movie has had its own set of delays but in 2019, Andy Muschietti signed on to direct the film. The director has also mentioned that the film would include parts of the comic book storyline which has certainly piqued fan interest in the film.
