    Does beg the question how this would fit into the stable of films; presumably it would be a separate universe to the actual Batman film & Robert Pattinson's Wayne. The running rumour for the longest time was that The Flash movie would be an adaptation of Flashpoint by way of another universe reset.

    The second question then begged is ... will we see Terry McGuinness? An ageing, retired Bruce Wayne does immediately remind of Batman Beyond.

    If it's Flashpoint maybe he's playing

    He was the best Batman/Bruce Wayne.

    I read something about him playing some kind of coordinating role, compared with Nick Fury.

    I think he was a great Bruce Wayne. His Batman was hampered by a very inflexible suit - he couldn't turn his head, as was mocked in The Dark Knight, in the "Three buttons is a little nineties" exchange with Lucius.

    Fox: You want to be able to turn your head?
    Wayne: Sure make backing out of the driveway easier.

    Yes, the scuttlebutt is that Keaton's Wayne will be playing a coordinator role, ala Nick Fury.

    Honestly, as it's a rumour tied to The Flash movie, a production endlessly stuck in limbo and reshuffles, I wouldn't hold out hope of this ever transpiring or seeing the light of day.

    Why did they never, even once, attempt a Batman Beyond movie? It's a completely different take on the characters and the future setting would make it wholly unique as well.

    Same probable reason we've seen Crime Alley with every single film adaptation... brand recognition & aversion to risk. Batman is Bruce Wayne; crime alley; Alfred; Joker; etc etc., at least to the common "four quadrant" demographic needed for these $200 million blockbusters. Safest path taken.
