Suggesting he’s not the lock for the film we hoped we was, Michael Keaton says he’s still to to read the latest draft of “The Flash”, and is too busy to think about the project at the moment. “I mean, you know, to tell you the truth, somewhere on my iPad is an iteration of the whole Flash thing that I haven’t had time yet,” the actor, who would reprise his role as Batman in the film, tells Deadline. “I called them and said, I have to be honest with you. I can’t look at anything right now. I’m so deep into this thing I’m doing. Also, I’m prepping a thing I’m producing and getting ready to do down the road in the fall that I’ll be in, and I feel responsible to that. So, yeah, there is that. I’m not being cute or coy. If I talked about it, I’ll be just bullshitting you. I don’t really know. I have to look at the last draft…”

Keaton also says he’s a little concerned about the pandemic, and whether he wants to risk traveling to the UK at this time.

“I keep my eye more on the Covid situation in the UK than anything. That will determine everything, and so that’s why I’m living outside the city here on 17 acres, staying away from everybody, because the Covid thing has got me really concerned. So, that’s my first thing about all projects. I look at it and go, is this thing going to kill me, literally? And you know, if it doesn’t, then we talk.”
