Jeffrey Dean Morgan Is Still Angling to Play Flashpoint Batman


Despite the change in direction Warner Bros.' DC Extended Universe has taken as of late, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice alum Jeffrey Dean Morgan is still holding out hope he will be able to don the cowl as the Flashpoint version of Batman one day.

For the uninitiated, DC Comics' Flashpoint takes place in an alternate timeline in which -- among other key changes to the DC Universe -- it was actually Bruce Wayne who perished in the alley on that fateful night, prompting his father, Thomas, to seek vengeance against Gotham's criminals as Batman. Evidently, Morgan -- who played Thomas Wayne in Batman v Superman -- would like to tackle this angle in live-action.

"Look, I don't know, I mean if there's a chance that would ask me, I'd say yes," Morgan told ComicBook.com. "I think the Flashpoint story is, it's my favorite story. I would love to do it. But, you know, DC is DC and they're, you know, it's a constant... it seems like they're always kinda switching up who's running it and what they're gonna do. So hopefully, what I'd like to see is a little continuity with DC, have them get on the track, and then, man I'd be honored and love to do it more than anything."

Morgan is certainly no stranger to comic book films, and seems to enjoy being a part of that world. In addition to Batman v Superman, he appeared as Edward Blake/The Comedian in the 2009 film adaptation of Watchmen. The actor has also expressed interest in playing DC's Lobo. Further, he currently stars as the character Negan in AMC's The Walking Dead, which is currently gearing up for its tenth season.
