So many actors have played Batman at this point, it was only a matter of time until some of them got a second chance. Apparently, Michael Keaton is first up to bat (pun intended).

Comicbook.com is reporting that Keaton is in talks to reprise his role as ‘The Caped Crusader’ in the upcoming Flashpoint movie.

Ezra Miller first appeared as The Flash in Justice League and will be back in the starring role for Flashpoint. Ben Affleck, who played Batman in Justice League, walked away from the role following the release of the film.

Keaton originally donned the Batsuit in 1989’s Batman. He came back for Batman Returns a few years later. Most recently, Keaton made the jump to the Marvel Cinematic Universe as The Vulture in Spider-Man: Homecoming.
