A Flash Deleted Scene About Why Michael Keaton’s Bruce Wayne Quit Also Raises Questions About Time Travel, According To The Director


What would it take for Batman to retire? Several versions of the Caped Crusader see the Batman fighting until old, old age. But in the Christopher Nolan trilogy of films, we did see Christian Bale “retire” his Batman gig between The Dark Knight and The Dark Knight Rises as he mourned the loss of Rachel (Maggie Gyllenhaal). If you tried to watch the DC Batman movies in order, you would get to Ben Affleck’s older Bruce Wayne introduced in Zack Snyder’s universe. And finally, the once-again retired Bruce Wayne played by Michael Keaton in this past summer’s The Flash. But WHY did that Wayne hang up his cape and cowl? 

Reaction to The Flash now that it’s available with a Max subscription has been mixed. Nicolas Cage gently ribbed his all-too-brief Superman cameo in the movie. But our own Corey Chichizola still feels like The Flash didn’t get a fair shake. Personally, I think it’s an excellent Flash movie, and I liked Michael Keaton’s return as Batman from his two Tim Burton movies. But when we meet Keaton’s Bruce Wayne, he’s been out of commission for several years. And while appearing on CinemaBlend’s official ReelBlend podcast, director Andy Muschietti explained that there will be a deleted scene that eventually clears up the mystery of Bruce Wayne, and what forced him out of playing Batman.
