    Default Bale or Keaton - Who would you rather have in The Flash?

    So Ben Affleck is definitely going to be in The Flash, but lately the rumor mill has been abuzz that Michael Keaton may not be fully on board yet, and that WB is reportedly approaching Christian Bale to replace him in the project.

    Now, I'd watch the hell out of Christian Bale in anything, and if he returns as Batman after a decade I'll be thrilled. But I admit I have mixed feelings about seeing Bale return as Batman, mainly because he got what most versions of Batman don't. An ending.

    The Nolanverse trilogy is near perfect and I'm not sure how I feel about seeing that version of Batman being resurrected. Especially in what's sure to be a very comic-booky sci-fi film about time-travel and the Multiverse.

    On the other hand, Michael Keaton's Batman never got an ending, and his version of the character is one it'd be really intriguing to see after three decades. And while Burton had his own unique imprint on Batman's world, I still feel that Keaton's Bruce is a better fit for a more comic-booky universe than Bale's would be.

    So I'd personally prefer to see Keaton over Bale, but if Keaton doesn't return, I guess I'd be open to seeing Bale - though I'd be a tad more skeptical about how they'd pull it off.

    What do you'll think?

    Voted both - if they're introducing the multiverse might as well have fun with it. Although isn't it just Keaton and Affleck in Flash? I don't remember reading that Bale was gonna be in this.

    Honestly I'm more hyped for Pattinson's Batman right now, but we'll see once we actually get a trailer for Flash if hype builds up.

    Keaton should get more spotlight. Bale already has a triology.

    I will take the two of them.

    If I was forced to pick, It would be Keaton.

    Keaton. I could never take Bale's throat-cancer voice seriously.

    I was never that enamored with Keaton honestly, There's just not much to him as a character.

    Anyways I'd go for Bale.
