Michael Keaton is set to return as Batman in both The Flash and Batgirl. While we need to wait a while before we get our first glimpse of the character on television, an apparent leak may have revealed the best look at the Batsuit.
Recently a Twitter user @Moth_Culture shared images that are pretty close to the in-set images and promo materials. The leaked images showcase a Batsuit that’s pretty similar to the ones the actor wore in both Tim Burton’s Batman in 1989 and its sequel Batman Returns in 1992. The new superhero costume retains the same yellow Bat-symbol but is made up with more modern materials.

In case you didn’t know, Michael Keaton will reprise the role of Bruce Wayne after three decades. Recently he shared his excitement to bring the character back after all these years. Talking about the return, he said, “It was shockingly normal. It was weird. Like I went, ‘Oh, oh yeah, that’s right’. But also then you start to play the scenes, and it was a lot of memories, a lot of interesting sense memories.”
Although Warner Bros. has big plans for the characters, Andy Muschietti had to convince Keaton to reprise his role again. He said, “When it came around again first of all I was getting curious about it. I thought, ‘Boy, what would that be like?’ And then, coincidentally, there were murmurs, and I got a call from Warner Bros. They wanted to talk to me about something and there was hints of Batman,” Keaton said of the build-up to the project. “It has to be good. There’s no reason to do it if it’s not good. It’s not gonna really change anything. And I just jumped in and had fun. And why would you not? You know, I mean, director Andy Muschietti is fantastic, and he’s really creative. I don’t know. It’s fun.”
