Jeffrey Dean Morgan wants a shot at playing Batman. Having portrayed Thomas Wayne in Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice, and with Flashpoint currently on DC’s slate, he might just get the chance!
A bit of background, in Flashpoint, Barry Allen aka Flash messes up the whole DC timeline, resulting in Bruce Wayne being shot in crime alley and his father Thomas becoming the Batman. A more brutal Batman, of course.
Games Radar (via Total Film magazine) has some fun quotes from Morgan that indicate this idea of him playing Batman has been on his and Zack Snyder’s mind for a decade:
“Look, I’m not going to lie. Zack Snyder and I talked about doing Batman together when we did Watchmen. I think it was both he and I’s favorite character and favorite story.
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 all this actually happen? Will Morgan keep his role as Thomas Wayne and become the Batman in Flashpoint?
“We’ll see. I mean, look, DC is DC and they’ll figure out what they’re going to do next. 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.”
I don’t even watch The Walking Dead, but I have enjoyed Morgan in Watchmen and even The Losers. I would love to see him play Batman, especially in this story!
