Uh oh...

The first footage from The Flash featured an interesting shot with Michael Keaton’s Batman cowl.

At Saturday’s DC FanDome, we received the very first footage from The Flash. The upcoming solo film will notably feature the return of Michael Keaton as Batman.

In the sneak peek that debuted during DC FanDome, we just got a tease of Michael Keaton’s return of Batman with a shot of his cowl. The sneak peek also included an interesting shot of a bloodied Batman cowl and suit on the floor.

Some speculated that this might be Ben Affleck’s version of Batman. However, if you look closely, you can see that the Batman cowl and suit belongs to Michael Keaton’s Dark Knight. What does this mean for Keaton’s Batman? Only time will tell. You can see the shot from The Flash for yourself below.

Directed by Andy Muschietti from a script written by Birds of Prey scribe Christina Hodson, The Flash will be inspired by the Flashpoint comic storyline which followed The Flash as he navigated an altered DC Universe. Written by Geoff Johns and penciled by Andy Kuber, Flashpoint radically altered the status of the DC Comics universe and led to the launch of the New 52 titles. It is currently unknown how much inspiration the upcoming Ezra Miller film will take from the comic.

The upcoming solo film will star Ezra Miller reprising their role as Barry Allen from Justice Leauge joined alongside Kiersey Clemons as Iris West, Maribel Verdú as Nora Allen, Ron Livingston replacing Billy Crudup as Henry Allen, Sasha Calle debuting as Supergirl, and the return of Michael Keaton and Ben Affleck as their versions of Batman.

The Flash is set to hit theaters on November 4, 2022. Stay tuned for all the latest news on Andy Muschietti’s The Flash and the rest of the projects at DC FanDome. You can also subscribe to Heroic Hollywood’s YouTube channel for more video content in the future!
