Hollywood star Michael Keaton is in talks to return to the DC universe as the caped crusader Batman.


Keaton, 68, who famously starred as the superhero in Tim Burton-directed "Batman" movies of the nineties, is in early stages of conversation to reprise the character in film "The Flash", reports a section of the media.


"The Flash" also marks a solo outing for Ezra Miller's character Barry Allen, aka the Flash, who was introduced in "Batman v Superman".


The film will be directed by Andy Muschietti.


If the deal is sealed, Keaton will not only return as the iconic superhero for "Flash" but possibly for several other DC-oriented film projects.

Keaton last played the character in 1992's "Batman Returns".
