Michael Keaton, who famously played Batman in two Tim Burton movies, 1989's "Batman" and 1992's "Batman Returns, is in talks to reprise the role for Warner Bros.' upcoming DC movie "The Flash."
If Keaton makes the deal, he may be in for more than just one film. He could be cast as the Dark Knight in several other D.C.-related film projects.
The idea is that Keaton's older version of Batman would be more of a mentor or guide, like Samuel L. Jackson's Nick Fury in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
The news should be especially exciting to people of a certain age group. To put is simply, for Gen X, Michael Keaton is Batman.
