Jeffrey Dean Morgan has been dropping hints that he may be playing the Thomas Wayne version of Batman in Flashpoint. In a new interview with Total Film magazine he made it clear that he’s very aware of that version of Batman, and even revealed that he and Zack Snyder talked about making a Batman movie together when they were working on 2009’s Watchmen.
“Look, I’m not going to lie. Zack Snyder and I talked about doing Batman together when we did Watchmen,” Morgan revealed. “I think it was both he and I’s favorite character and favorite story.”
Morgan then talked about Batman in Flashpoint, which just got directors in John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein.
“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.”
So will Morgan actually get to suit up as Batman in Flashpoint? He says it’s up to Warner Bros. and DC.
“We’ll see. I mean, look, DC is DC and they’ll figure out what they’re going to do next,” Morgan said. “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.”
