Michael Keaton Persuaded to Appear in “The Flash”!
Actor Michael Keaton is very familiar with superhero movies since he portray Batman in 1989’s ‘Batman’ and 1992’s ‘Batman Returns.’
CelebnMovies247.com is reporting that Michael Keaton, 70, will again portray Batman in the upcoming DC Extended Universe (DCEU) film “The Flash.”
Though, Michael Keaton wasted no time stating that he was reluctant to do, though he insisted he wasn’t “fleeing” the role which made him a household name.
When asked about needed much persuading to sign on to The Flash, Keaton said:
A fair amount. But I wasn’t fleeing it. It just wasn’t in my consciousness and then, when it was, it was a question of them calling when they had something.
Though, Michael refused to give any details about his appearance in the movie because he doesn’t want to spoil it.
He told the Sunday Times Culture magazine:
I’ll be frank, I don’t want to talk about it because it takes the fun away.
If you recall, Keaton turned down around $15 million to play the Caped Crusader for a third time in the 1990s but it isn’t something he’s interested in discussing now.
I don’t remember. That’s in my past. It’s 2021 or whatever the f*** it is — who gives a s***? Let’s talk about things that matter. Years ago someone asked Batman questions. I said, ‘You realise there’s a logjam of bodies floating down a river in Rwanda? Who the f*** cares about Batman?’
It was a conscious decision to be as pretentious as I can.
Keaton then added:
No, good scripts are just good scripts. I’ve always had a social conscience — I come from that generation. But it would not shock me if people say, ‘OK, Mike, lighten up and have a laugh.’ But who knows what I’ll do next?
