Is Batman returns a Christmas movie

Batman: Michael Keaton could become the Dark Knight again after Robert Pattinson

Batman returns! We already knew that, of course, because The Batman will soon be the next installment in the popular superhero series. But after Robert Pattinson slips into the batsuit, another star could soon be in the spotlight again. Michael Keaton should possibly impersonate the role again in the future. There is, of course, a catch in the whole matter.

We are eagerly following every news about the upcoming blockbuster The Batman. The film is directed by director Matt Reeves and shows us Twilight star Robert Pattinson for the first time as Gotham's protector. While Pattinson takes on the lead role, the acting cast is also full of other Hollywood starlets. Paul Dano appears as Riddler, Colin Farrell as the penguin, John Turturro plays Carmine Falcone and Catwoman is played by Zoe Kravitz. At Batman's side are butler Alfred Pennyworth (Andy Serkis) and police chief James Gordon (Jeffrey Wright). Superhero fans can count on plenty of talent in the film.

Michael Keaton hasn't slipped into the role Robert Pattinson was allowed to play for 28 years. The 68-year-old was last seen as Batman in Batman from 1989 and Batman Returns from 1992. The films caused mixed reactions, so that Keaton eventually gave up the bat suit. However, he has since been seen elsewhere in the realm of superheroes. In Spider-Man: Homecoming he played Vulture, one of the enemies of the friendly spider from the neighborhood. And now the Oscar winner seems to be missing his old role again.

As reported by The Hollywood Reporter, among others, Keaton could appear in several DC films. One of them is The Flash, which is slated to hit the cinema screens in June 2022. Should Keaton actually return, he will have to do without a solo film. Instead, he could get a cameo in the adventures of other heroes. It remains unclear whether the rumor will actually come true. For now we can adjust to Robert Pattinson in the role. The Batman with him as the main actor should appear in US cinemas on October 1st, 2021. In Germany, the strip would start one day earlier and therefore on September 30, 2021. You can now catch a first glimpse of the new batsuit in our video player.
