The reports state that Keaton is "in talks to return to the role of Batman, to appear alongside Ezra Miller in Warner Bros.’ upcoming movie 'The Flash'". With the plot of 'The Flash' centred around the comic story line 'Flashpoint' , it's rumoured Keaton would enter the DCEU and take on a mentor role much like that of Nick Fury in the MCU.
