The actor spoke with Jimmy Kimmel about the rumor he is reprising his most iconic role in the upcoming 'Flash' film.

Michael Keaton was a guest Tuesday on Jimmy Kimmel Live! and, of course, he was asked about the rumor he is reprising his most famous role: Batman.

The iconic actor was somewhat elusive about whether he will appear in the upcoming Flash film as his incarnation of Tim Burton's Bruce Wayne/Batman, but he admitted "we are having discussions, as they say. We'll see if it happens."

As for who is the best Batman of all, Keaton, who was on the show to promote his new film, The Trial of the Chicago 7, immediately told Kimmel, "me," before joking that all "127" actors who have played Batman will appear in The Flash film. In reality, Keaton is reportedly going to return, as is Ben Affleck. Flash is eyeing a London start in spring 2021.

Keaton also quipped that he sports the suit now and then around the house. "If I am just feeling insecure enough, I will slip into the suit. It just makes me feel a whole lot better," he said. "I will walk around the neighborhood a little bit. By the way, when things around here get a little bit nervous-making, I just put the suit on, and boy, things straighten the fuck up."
