Editor’s note: The following contains spoilers for ‘The Flash.While many DC fans have been eagerly awaiting the premiere The FlashIt’s hard to deny that many audience members still watch movies just to see the payoff Michael Keaton as Batman. A historic comeback that many fans never thought they’d see, and Keaton’s role in the film is more than a sad one. His Batman is a lot of Barry Allen’s (Ezra Miller) journey, and he is instrumental in the fight against Zod (Michael Shannon). While Keaton’s version of Bruce Wayne met a bittersweet end, seeing the beloved actor take up the mantle of Batman once again was a sight to behold.
The Flash It’s also the first live-action film to feature not one, not two, but three Bruce Waynes. Going into the movie, the audience definitely knew about Keaton’s major return, as well Ben Affleck will also play his DCEU version of the Caped Crusader. The end of the bombshell The Flash There is yet another strange appearance of the third Bruce Wayne that has shocked audiences everywhere. At first glance, this seems like a fun little cameo to end the movie. Upon further inspection, there is a chance that it may be the first of many new casting developments in DC Films CEOs. James Gunn And Peter SafranThe new DC Universe.
‘The Flash’ sees George Clooney play Bruce Wayne for the first time in 25 years
Although the overall message of The Flash It seems like people can’t change the past without affecting the future, Barry Allen just can’t help himself from changing one for the greater good. By placing a can of tomatoes on the top shelf, Henry Allen’s safety video (Ron Livingston) that Bruce Wayne of the DCEU (Ben Affleck) came earlier in the film now clearly shows Henry’s face. Thus, Henry’s alibi was confirmed, and he was finally exonerated for his crime after two decades in prison.
It looks like Barry finally got his happy ending, but the movie has another twist in the form of a big surprise cameo. Barry receives a call from Bruce Wayne’s cell phone, who tells Barry that he is pulling up to congratulate The Flash on exonerating his father. When Bruce steps out of his limo, the CEO of Wayne Enterprises we see is not Ben Affleck, not Michael Keaton, but in fact, George Clooney. As longtime Batman fans will remember, Clooney played The Dark Knight in 1997. Batman & Robin. The film ends with Clooney’s reintroduction to the DC franchise, but the appearance raises more than a few questions.
Clooney’s appearance in ‘The Flash’ appears to be a cameo and nothing more
While nothing has been confirmed yet, Clooney’s cameo appearance at the end The Flash Maybe just a simple cameo appearance. The entire sequence is mostly played for laughs, with Barry even going so far as to exclaim “Who the f*ck is that?” Overall it seems to be a situation similar to the cameos we saw in Doctor Strange is very mad With members of the Illuminati, who are used more to provide entertaining fan service than to add meaning to the universe.
That is a possible situation, but at the same time, the appearance of Clooney in The Flash Not possible, to begin with.
Could George Clooney be the DCU’s Batman in ‘The Brave and the Bold’?
George Clooney’s appearance is supposed to be nothing more than a fun joke… but what if it’s not? After all, James Gunn said so The Flash will “reset” the DC Cinematic universe, and unless Barry returns to change the timeline again, this may mean that Clooney will still be Batman in this new DCU. Not to mention, Clooney’s role as an older and wiser Bruce Wayne fits the bill. Batman Movies that have already been announced for the DCU.
James Gunn announced in January 2023 that the Batman of the DCU will get his first solo film in. The Brave and the Bold, and will also be adapted “Son of Batman” storyline from the comics. This famous arc mainly revolves around the fan-favorite character of Damian Wayne – the son of Bruce Wayne and Talia al Ghul as well as the grandson of the famous Ra’s al Ghul. Before meeting his father and becoming the next incarnation of Robin, Damian spent most of his life training to become an invisible assassin, so he had a hard time adjusting to Batman’s “no killing” rule.
The project is still a few years away and may be delayed by the ongoing Writer’s Strike, but the story details already hint at this version of Batman. For one, it means that Batman the movie will follow will be an older and more experienced Bruce Wayne and more than likely not an origin story. In the comics, Damian is also the fifth person to take on the role of Robin after Dick Grayson, Jason Todd, Tim Drake, and Stephanie Brown, again pointed out. The Brave and the Bold Will happen well in Batman’s crime-fighting career. We certainly don’t know how accurate the upcoming comedy will be, but Clooney’s age and placement in the timeline match the story and would be a bold and welcome creative choice.
George Clooney is the right Batman in the wrong Batman movie
Regardless of what Clooney’s brief appearance might be, it was a surprise to be sure, but a welcome one. It is some redemption for Ocean Franchise star gave that Batman & Robin is one of the most reviled Batman movie ever made. Director Joel SchumacherFollow up Batman forever (which recast Michael Keaton with Val Kilmer) recast the role of Bruce Wayne again with George Clooney. Dressed in a batsuit and fighting alongside his trusty sidekick, Robin (Chris O’Donnell), the duo moves toe-to-toe with three of the iconic villains in Mr. Freeze (Arnold Schwarzenegger), Poison Ivy (Uma Thurman), and Bane (Jeep Swenson).
Although the movie has fans (and personally, I like watching it Batman & Robin Any day of the past week Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice), but the film did not perform well with critics or audiences. Reasons vary from cartoonish and goofy to too much of an exit Tim Burton-directed films all the way to garish and corny production design and dialogue. Despite all this, we will die on this hill and proudly say that George Clooney is a great Batman, and one who deserves a lot of love and attention. Yes, the Bat’s nipples are gross and the Bat’s credit card is self-explanatory, but Clooney’s performance is a fitting honesty for the hero.
For starters, Clooney’s voice is excellent. It is the last sound until Robert Pattinson‘s The Batman That’s not boring with scratchy fake voices or robotically modified voices. Clooney’s naturally deep voice just fits the character perfectly. Plus, Clooney creates some emotional moments that we don’t see a ton of in Keaton or Kilmer’s movies. with Alfred (Michael Gough) Ill, we get moments when Clooney’s Bruce Wayne has a heart-to-heart with the butler who raised him, and they’re honestly some of the best moments in the original Burton-Schumacher saga.
Time will tell if this is just a fun little story, or if Clooney’s Batman could be part of Gunn’s vision for the future.
