Another Michael Keaton Batman project has been canceled: Insider

Gotham City is crying today.

Word has it that Michael Keaton was set to reprise his role as the caped Crusader in another upcoming Batman project — until some supervillains allegedly scrapped the film.

The studio reportedly “killed” a “solo ‘Batman’ movie that would have starred Michael Keaton,” said film insider Jeff Sneider Podcast “The Hot Microphone” with Jeff Sneider and John Rocha.. It was intended to be written by Christina Hodson, the brains behind several DC Extended Universe projects.

Hodson also wrote the canned film Batgirl, in which Keaton would star alongside the titular character, played by Leslie Grace, and Police Commissioner Jim Gordon, played by JK Simmons. The Post exclusively received set photos from Batgirl, which show Keaton’s body double in a suit reminiscent of both of his films from the late 1980s and early ’90s.

Shortly after the recent disappointing revelation, fellow insider Umberto Gonzalez not only confirmed Sneider’s scoop, but also shared details about it the plot of the film.

“The Michael Keaton ‘solo’ Batman film you are talking about that Christina Hodson wrote was actually the BATMAN BEYOND film,” he tweeted.

Batman Beyond was a successful three-season DC animation that aired from 1999 to 2001 and was the sequel to the hit series Batman: The Animated Series.

The late Kevin Conroy, Bruce Wayne’s beloved voice, played an aging version of the superhero as he came to terms with being an old man’s inability to fight crime.

As he did with many Robbins, Wayne recruited and trained hotshot teenager Terry McGinnis to take on the role of a much more technically advanced Batman in futuristic – but still criminal – Gotham.

Both characters also appeared in Justice League: Unlimited and saved the day.

McGinnis was revealed to be Wayne’s biological son in a 2005 episode of Justice League.
