Jeffrey Dean Morgan said he’s still waiting to return to the DCEU after watching The Suicide Squad.
Known for his roles in films such as Zack Snyder’s Watchmen and Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice as well as in AMC’s The Walking Dead, Jeffrey Dean Morgan has been a fan-favorite actor amongst geeks. With his role as Thomas Wayne in the opening scene of Batman v Superman, fans expressed hope that Jeffrey Dean Morgan would eventually return to the DCEU in some capacity. Some hoped that he would play Thomas Wayne’s Batman in a Flashpoint movie.
Jeffrey Dean Morgan recently watched James Gunn’s The Suicide Squad, and much like many critics and audiences who had a chance to see the film, he’s quite glowing in his review he posted on his official Twitter:
While the upcoming DCEU film The Flash looks to borrow from the Flashpoint comic, the story opted to bring back Michael Keaton’s Batman as a potential new mentor figure for Barry Allen (Ezra Miller). The film won’t be using the Thomas Wayne Batman in that story, meaning that Jeffrey Dean Morgan’s potential return to the DCEU will have to wait.
It’d be cool to see Jeffrey Dean Morgan return either as Thomas Wayne or perhaps another character in the DCEU. Everyone knows what a monumental talent he is, and to see him back in the franchise whether under the direction of Zack Snyder or someone else, it’d be something exciting to see!
Jeffrey Dean Morgan currently plays Negan on AMC’s The Walking Dead. His last appearance in the DCEU was in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, which is available to own on 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray, Blu-ray, DVD and Digital HD. Here is the synopsis for The Suicide Squad:
Welcome to hell—a.k.a. Belle Reve, the prison with the highest mortality rate in the US of A. Where the worst Super-Villains are kept and where they will do anything to get out—even join the super-secret, super-shady Task Force X. Today’s do-or-die assignment? Assemble a collection of cons, including Bloodsport, Peacemaker, Captain Boomerang, Ratcatcher 2, Savant, King Shark, Blackguard, Javelin and everyone’s favorite psycho, Harley Quinn. Then arm them heavily and drop them (literally) on the remote, enemy-infused island of Corto Maltese. Trekking through a jungle teeming with militant adversaries and guerrilla forces at every turn, the Squad is on a search-and-destroy mission, with only Colonel Rick Flag on the ground to make them behave…and Amanda Waller’s government techies in their ears, tracking their every movement. And as always, one wrong move and they’re dead (whether at the hands of their opponents, a teammate, or Waller herself). If anyone’s laying down bets, the smart money is against them—all of them.
Written and directed by James Gunn, The Suicide Squad stars David Dastmalchian, John Cena, Jai Courtney, Joaquín Cosío, Nathan Fillion, Joel Kinnaman, Mayling Ng, Flula Borg, Sean Gunn, Juan Diego Botto, Storm Reid, Pete Davidson, Taika Waititi, Alice Braga, Steve Agee, Tinashe Kajese, Daniela Melchior, Peter Capaldi, Julio Ruiz, Jennifer Holland, Viola Davis, Idris Elba, Margot Robbie, and Michael Rooker.
