Since he was first cast as Thomas Wayne in Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice, fans have speculated whether or not Jeffrey Dean Morgan would portray Batman in a Flashpoint movie.
In the comic book storyline, the Flash finds himself in an alternate reality where Bruce Wayne’s parents lived, he died, and among other things… Thomas Wayne became Batman and Martha Wayne became the Joker.
In an interview with Total Film, Morgan discussed the possibility of playing the character as well as the conservations he had with director Zack Snyder.
“Look, I’m not going to lie. Zack Snyder and I talked about doing Batman together when we did Watchmen. I think it was both he and I’s favorite character and favorite story.”
Morgan had words of praise on the Thomas Wayne version of the character.
“And what I know about the Flashpoint Batman is, you know, for me, I think he is not only the darkest of the Batmen, but the coolest. And I love his whole storyline and who he is and the tortured soul of it all.”
Will Morgan play Batman in Flashpoint? Morgan had this to say on that subject:
“We’ll see. I mean, look, DC is DC and they’ll figure out what they’re going to do next, but I’m highly aware of the character, I will say that. I’m highly aware of the character, and it would probably be a thrill of a lifetime to put on the Batsuit.”
