Michael Keaton will be returning as the caped crusader in more than just the upcoming Warner Bros.’ film The Flash, as he joins the cast of the upcoming HBO Max film Batgirl.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, The Flash will be Keaton’s first time back in the suit in nearly 30 years. He first played Batman in the 1989 Tim Burton directed blockbuster of the same name. Although he also reprised the role in the 1992 sequel Batman Returns.

Both films were met with critical and financial success, and changed the face of the superhero film genre. Although when Keaton was cast in the role many fans were skeptical given his comedic background. However, he used that background to his advantage and became one of fans’ favorite iterations of the character.

Batgirl does not yet have a set release date, but fans can catch Michael Keaton in his cape and cowl next November and you can continue to check back here for all the Batgirl news as it emerges.
