Another Batman for the multiverse
Not only does Marvel enjoy its own multiverse. At DC Universe There is also room for a parallel world, Earth-2, in which many of the superheroes we know also coexist in a life that happens at the same time as the one we all “know”. It is something complex perhaps to understand if you are not involved in the world, but in the end it helps to give a lot of play both in the comic world and on the screen. And precisely in the latter is where it was speculated that we could see again none other than Michael Keaton.
It turns out that Times editor Brooks Barnes interviewed Walter Hamada, head of DC Films, discovering that DC was going to dive right into the multiverse, with a Wonder Woman, played by Gal Gadot, who was part of Earth-1 and of a Robbert Pattinson like Bruce Wayne existing on Earth-2. This could imply that Ben Affleck’s Batman was also part of Earth-1, since he coincided with Gadot in two films: Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and The Justice League.
However, Barnes also pointed out in his article that Warner Bros. would have two different movie sagas involving Batman and that this character would be played by two different actors, so many fans asked through Twitter to clarify what other actor we were talking about (assuming that one of them was Pattinson). And Barnes replied that he meant Keaton:
Hi @brooksbarnesNYT. Based on your Hamada piece, some have interpreted that WB is doing 2 franchises starring Batman, one with Pattinson, one with a new actor. Is that correct, or you were referring to Keaton as a second Batman, being part of a non-Batman-centric saga? Thank you!

Did it mean then that Michael Keaton returned to his role for a new saga with several superhero films? Not only that, did this imply that Ben Affleck had been completely removed from the equation?
A misinterpretation of the tweet
The uproar behind such a response was immediate and, as we noted at the beginning, many media began to publish that Keaton was returning to his role through the front door. However, the excitement has been short-lived. After seeing the one that has been mounted, the journalist has had to clarify the situation on his Twitter account, pointing out that he was referring to the only confirmed movie in which Keaton will appear:
Been offline (moving apartments) and return to see this Michael Keaton craziness. I was referring to the * one film * that Keaton has been announced as being in, not a set of his own Batman films. If I had info on him beyond “The Flash,” I would have obviously put it in my article

As you will surely know if you are a fan of DC and Batman, the actor will be in charge of giving life to the Bat Man in the future film of The Flash (for 2022), but, beyond that, nothing has been confirmed nor does it seem that it was the journalist’s intention to hint at it – something awkward in how he said it, of course it was.
If you’ve already got your hopes up … we’re sorry to tell you that, at least for now, it doesn’t seem like we’re going to see Keaton wearing the suit of this great character in a new saga.
