BATMAN Actor Michael Keaton Confirmed To Return As The Dark Knight For HBO Max BATGIRL Movie

An updated Batgirl cast list with Michael Keaton's name on it found its way online earlier today, and we now have confirmation that the actor is set to reprise his iconic role for the HBO Max movie.

It's official: Michael Keaton will reprise the role of Bruce Wayne/Batman for the currently shooting Batgirl movie.

Earlier today, an updated cast list with the actor's name was shared online, but we weren't sure if it was officially released by Warner Bros. or not (it's an easy thing to mock-up, after all). However, THR has now confirmed that Keaton will indeed return as The Caped Crusader for the upcoming HBO Max feature.

We don't have much more to go on, but this news would seem to suggest that reports of Keaton staying on as the DCEU's Dark Knight following his role in The Flash might be accurate. It's also unclear if the Dopesick star will have a substantial role in the movie or only make a cameo appearance, but we'd say there's a decent chance he will serve as a mentor-like figure for Leslie Grace's Barbara Gordon.

Batgirl will also star J.K. Simmons as Jim Gordon, along with Jacob Scipio and Brendan Fraser in undisclosed roles (the latter is believed to be playing the villainous Firefly). Loki composer Natalie Holt recently announced that she's signed on to work on the movie's score, while Christina Hodson, who wrote Bumblebee and also worked on Birds of Prey and The Flash, penned the most recent draft of the script.

Batgirl directors Adil El Arbi and Bilall Fallah recently announced the start of production on Batgirl with a set photo, though no premiere date has been set.
