Will Michael Keaton still be Batman after ‘Batgirl’ cancellation?

The Post broke the story Tuesday that the mostly completed DC film wouldn’t hit theaters or stream on HBO Max.The “Birdman” actor previously donned the black leather suit as Bruce Wayne/The Caped Crusader in Tim Burton’s 1989 flick “Batman” and its 1992 sequel, “Batman Returns.”However, due to the canceled movie, Keaton will possibly have a diminished role in the DC universe in upcoming projects.The Hollywood Reporter revealed on Wednesday that his character was “at the center” of a big action sequence in “Batgirl.”The outlet also noted how Keaton’s Batman is an important part of next year’s Ezra Miller-fronted movie “The Flash.” Sources then added that he also filmed shots for the forthcoming “Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom.”The “Aquaman” sequel was supposed to debut before “The Flash,” thus explaining how Keaton’s iteration of Batman was central to the current DC storylines.Ben Affleck — who took over the role of Bruce Wayne/Batman in 2016’s “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” and 2017’s “Justice League” — is back for the ocean-filled sequel.The Post reported on Tuesday that test audiences were allegedly “confused” about how Keaton’s Batman fit into “Aquaman 2.”Leslie Grace, J.K. Simmons, Jacob Scipio and Brendan Fraser were also set to star in “Batgirl” alongside Keaton.The cast was “humiliated” by Warner Bros.
