Michael Keaton steals the show
The internet is raving about Michael Keaton’s return as Batman. Honestly, are you surprised?! Fans have been eager to see the veteran Dark Knight don the cape and cowl once again, and by the sounds of the early reaction, he exceeded expectations.
POC Culture refers to Keaton’s return as being simply “PERFECT”, while Busch says that she didn’t realize how much she “needed Keaton’s Batman” in her life again until watching The Flash. Forbes’ Jeff Conway adds that he is “superb” playing the role again.
Keaton famously played Bruce Wayne and his heroic alter-ego in 1989’s Batman. He would reprise the role in 1992’s Batman Returns. It’s amazing to hear that, after 30 years, he’s still got it.
