Michael Keaton recently appeared on the cover of “The Hollywood Reporter”. Keaton, who played Batman twice in 1989 and 1992, was asked how he feels returning to the role in “The Flash” which will be released next year.
Michael Keaton said that he always felt that he could go back and play Batman well, and since Warner came to the door, he would do it again.
In addition, he said that the parallel universe in the script of “The Flash” is difficult to understand. After reading it three times, the director and screenwriter explained it to him.
Michael Keaton said that he was deeply impressed by Christina Hodson’s script and director Andrés Muschietti, and was also surprised that he had the opportunity to return to play the role he had created.
He said: “To be honest, subconsciously, I always feel that I can go back and play this guy (motherfucker) well. But they really came to ask me, then I’ll see if I can do it.”

“This time I come back to play and I know him (Batman) better, and now I have a completely new understanding of him. I respect him very much, and I respect what people want to shoot. I never say,’This stuff is too stupid. ‘. I didn’t feel stupid when shooting Batman. Then Batman became a big cultural image and iconic. I have more respect for him. He is important to people all over the world. You have to Learn to commemorate and respect him. Sometimes I feel like,’Oh my God, this is so significant.'”
In order to understand the concept of the parallel universe in the “The Flash” movie, he racked his brains: “I read the script three times and asked them,’Wait a minute, what’s going on?’ So they had to explain it to me several times. I really can’t pretend to be X about this, and I never say “I’m too groovy”. I’m a little stupid. I don’t understand many things, so I can only figure out how to figure it out.”
“The Flash” will be released on November 4, 2022.
