Michael Keaton Describes the 1st Shot of Him as Batman in THE FLASH


Via Collider.com, Michael Keaton (who is doing press for his new film, THE PROTEGE) was asked what it was like on his first day on the set back in the Bat-Suit.  Here’s what he had to say…

[It was] weirdly and ironically easy. A little bit emotional. Just a rush of memories. Without giving anything away, which I can’t, basically the first shot, not of the entire movie but let’s say the introduction [of Batman], is so good that when we walked on and started talking about a couple of shots and the angles, I went ‘whoa, this is big. This is great.’ I don’t even mean for me. Just the imagery, it’s great. And reminiscent, to some degree, of Tim Burton.

It’s going to be interesting to see what the new Bat-Suit will look like.  Obviously, it’ll be reminiscent of the suits he wore in his two Batman movies, BATMAN ’89 and BATMAN RETURNSAnd we’ve already got a very small glimpse of it via director Andy Muschietti’s Instagram

2022 is shaping up to be a good year for Batman fans as we’re getting first of the new solo Batman films in Matt Reeves’ THE BATMAN starring Robert Pattinson in March, and of course Keaton in THE FLASH — and yes, Ben Affleck too — a few months later.

And speaking of the first time we see Keaton’s Batman in a movie, let’s take a look at the original…
