The director of The Flash explains why Michael Keaton's "perfect" Batman costume had to be modified.

The roadblocks for Michael Keaton's return as Batman were numerous. Batman's comeback required a crucial modification to his iconic Batsuit in order for the whole thing to function, according to director Andy Muschietti, who made this revelation recently.

How does The Flash updated Batsuit differ from the first one

Since his last appearance in 1992's Batman Returns, Keaton has been absent from the role of the Dark Knight until The Flash. Keaton's Batsuit has the same sleek black style and iconic Bat emblem as the original, but it appears much more flexible 

Alex Burns, the costume designer for The Flash, reworked the Batsuit to provide Keaton less restricted movement with his neck and legs. 

return to his star-making role was crucial for director Muscheietti and his producer sister Barbara Muscheietti to ensure the success of the narrative. 


Miller, Keaton, Calle, and Shannon are the main cast in Muscheietti's The Flash, which was written by Birds of Prey author Christina Hodson. Along with Ben Affleck playing his DCEU version of Bruce Wayne/Batman, Kiersey Clemons plays Iris West, Maribel Verd plays Nora Allen, and Ron Livingston plays Henry Allen in the movie. On June 16, The Flash rushes into theatres.
