The Bat-family will be well represented at tomorrow’s DC FanDome event. Besides a trailer for The Batman, it’s possible we’ll get to see Michael Keaton as he return to the suit for an appearance in The Flash alongside Ben Affleck in what is expected to be his final time. And then there’s HBO Max film, Batgirl, which will star In the Heights‘ Leslie Grace as Barbara Gordon, with JK Simmons reprising as Commissioner Gordon, confirming the film’s place in the DCEU. And according to that film’s directors, Batman himself will show up.
But which one? Speaking with Dutch outlet VRT News, directors Adil El Arbi and Bilall Fallah confirmed Batman will have a role in Batgirl, but wouldn’t say which one. Will it be Michael Keaton? Ben Affleck? Heck, they even teased Val Kilmer which is incredibly unlikely.
So what’s up here? Well, you might recall that Keaton has been rumored for an extended stay within the DCEU. Perhaps this is all part of that, and he’ll play a sort of mentor role to Batgirl as she finds her way as a hero in Gotham City.
