Eternals star Barry Keoghan teased his upcoming DC role in Matt Reeves’ The Batman with a new photo.
With just under a year to go until The Batman makes it onto the big screen, many fans are waiting to see more from the movie now that it has wrapped filming. Eternals star Barry Keoghan, who is set to make his DC debut in the film, took to Twitter with a new photo to tease his role in the Matt Reeves project opposite Robert Pattinson. Unfortunately, it doesn’t reveal too much about what’s in store for audiences with the film.
The Eternals star tweeted a photo of himself wearing his crew fleece from The Batman, which features a miniature logo from the film using the Caped Crusader’s new chest symbol. Barry Keoghan will play Officer Stanley Merkel, one of James Gordon’s original partners in the pages of DC Comics. Although the police officer dies at the hands of the Hangman in the comics, Keoghan’s ever-growing star status may mean that he’ll stick around a bit longer. And with a Gotham PD-centric spin-off series on the way, it’s not impossible the star might reprise his role for the HBO Max show. Take a look at The Batman tease from Barry Keoghan below.

The plot of The Batman is being kept under wraps, but we know the film will follow Robert Pattinson as a younger version of Bruce Wayne, chronicling Batman during his second year as the Dark Knight of Gotham City. The film will also show off the hero using his skills as a detective more than what we’ve seen before in previous versions of the hero. It is also expected to be the first installment in a new trilogy of films with Pattinson.
Directed by Matt Reeves, The Batman stars Robert Pattinson as the titular hero, Zoe Kravitz as Catwoman, Paul Dano as the Riddler, Jeffrey Wright as Commissioner James Gordon, John Turturro as Carmine Falcone, Peter Sarsgaard as Gil Colson, Jayme Lawson as Bella Reál, with Andy Serkis as Alfred Pennyworth, and Colin Farrell as the Penguin.
The Batman is currently scheduled to hit theaters on March 4, 2022. Stay tuned for the latest news regarding Eternals star Barry Keoghan and make sure to subscribe to our YouTube channel for more video content.
