Micheal Keaton will wear the full Batman suit in The Flash movie!

New details on Micheal Keaton’s reported return to the Batman role that made him such a Nerd favourite waaaaaaaaay backin 1989.

New details have been revealed that flash, sorry, flesh out what exactly we can expect of Keaton in the upcoming The Flash movie.

We learned during the week that Keaton was in talks for the return (here) and then we learned that Warners have much bigger plans afoot for the role, with a full movie planned (here) and now we have some more cool news… and little bit of not so cool.

Firstly, the cool.

It seems that Keaton will not just be Bruce Wayne in the movie but will be in the full Batman suit – actually playing an older hero rather than a retired one.

Keaton back in the ear and cape!? Catch me, I may faint.

However, it seems that contrary to other reports (here), Thomas Wayne is NOT in The Flash script at all.

This is disappointing but I can’t help feeling that, while everyone is tentatively calling it so, this is not a Flashpoint movie at all but rather a movie that will show an inexperienced Flash discovering the Speedforce and just how great his abilities are.

Could he discover the multiverse in this movie, shaking everything up and then in a future outing go back to save his mother’s life, creating the Flashpoint universe? I’m beginning to think so.

What say you all?

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
