The Flash – Michael Keaton’s Batman reportedly removed from ending, Sasha Calle’s Supergirl in DCU comes into question

The Flash – Michael Keaton’s Batman reportedly removed from ending, Sasha Calle’s Supergirl in DCU comes into question

It looks like the fate of Michael Keaton‘s Batman and Sasha Calle‘s Supergirl will be a mystery by the end of The Flash movie. The Ezra Miller starrer speedster flick was highly praised by James Gunn during the recent Gods and Monsters announcement but according to a new report, the DC Studios chief has reportedly changed the ending of the Andy Muschietti-directed project to fit with DCU’s chapter one plans. 

With Gunn confirming the development of Brave and the Bold featuring a new Batman – it also assured there were no plans to feature Burtonverse’s Dark Knight in the DCU. The past leadership at WB had intended for the older Bruce Wayne played by Keaton to take over in Batfleck’s absence. However, according to journalist Grace Randolph, Gunn has instructed to remove any teases featuring not only the DC Extended Universe’s Justice League characters but also the new timeline’s Kryptonian, Supergirl. So all the ending scenes featuring Henry Cavill‘s Superman, Gal Gadot‘s Wonder Woman, and Calle’s Kara Zor-El are reportedly no longer part of the theatrical cut. 

“Barry just runs between the universe, the multiverse and everything’s gonna stay in the movie,” said Randolph. Readers can check it out below. Sasha Calle’s Supergirl removal has insider questioning if the DCU Chapter 1’s Supergirl: Woman of Tomorrow would cast a new actor to play the Kryptonian role similar to the replacing Cavill’s iteration. 

On the bright side, the DC Studios bosses teased the “possibilities” of revisiting the Burtonverse vigilante by reminding “we are a multiverse still.” However, The Suicide Squad director also pointed out the importance of “creating the universe that people pull their feet into” and touching upon “multiverse tales”. It’s possible Sasha Calle’s Supergirl could face the same outcome. 

Sasha Calle’s Supergirl might not be cast in Woman of Tomorrow, suggests DC insider

The Flash is currently being seen as the starting point which resets a substantial part of the DC universe. In Gunn’s words, “Flash resets many things, not all things. Some characters remain the same some do not,” said the DCU executive in clarification to a fans’ query on Amanda Waller’s (Viola Davis) unaltered existence even after the flashpoint-Esque incident. 

It seems Michael Keaton’s Batman will still appear in Aquaman 2 unless Gunn decides to alter the sequel’s cameo scenes as well to suit the narrative that works for the current DCU roadmap. All will be known when The Flash opens in theaters on June 16.
