Corresponding a recent conversation Kilmer had with IGN, the actor would be open to returning to the role of Bruce Wayne and Batman. The outlet asked, “Specifically, we now have multiple universes in comic book movies where actors who have played Batman or Spider-Man in the past team up with the current actor playing the role. Would you be interested in playing Batman/Bruce? Wayne even in a cameo again?” In response, Kilmer simply said, “Yes, please.” It seems that not only would he be willing to play the character again, he actually wants to. However, it’s very unclear if this would ever happen, especially given the current status of cancellations at Warner Bros. Discovery (via TVLine).
As most Batman fans know, Michael Keaton will be returning as Batman in 2023 during The Flash, but he won’t appear in the Batgirl movie now as he was recently shelved. Ben Affleck will also star in The Flash and now Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom, according to an Instagram post by Jason Momoa. Robert Pattinson is still playing Bruce Wayne in the sequel to The Batman, which is currently in writing (via The Hollywood Reporter). While seeing Kilmer as Batman one more time would probably be great for many fans, it would certainly be a lot of Batmans at once.
