I think you'd have to really work at it to be worse than the second one.

Asterisk: Keaton will be play *a* Batman, since it sounds like he's playing Thomas Wayne.

Does it bother anyone else that they're doing Flashpoint again? Not only are they loosely adapting established stories (like how BvS was a poor man's DKR), but you need to establish the universe before mixing it up. This Flash has only been in one film so far.

There was no mention of him playing Thomas Wayne anywhere in the article, so I'm not sure where you got that from.

The DCEU has been floundering ever since Justice League, with the Arrowverse pretty much putting it to shame. I mean, Crisis on Infinite Earths was miles better than anything they've offered on the big screen since The Dark Knight. And Ezra's cameo in it was basically studio meddling by WB, probably to keep his version of Barry on fans minds due to his solo movie still a while off (Marc Guggenheim stated in an interview that they had already wrapped production on Crisis when someone from WB called and said they wanted Ezra in it). I think WB wants to firmly and quickly cement the existence of the Multiverse in the DCEU simply so they can point to the Arrowverse and draw on its success by saying, "Look, we exist in their continuity, too!" But I highly doubt there will ever be any further crossover between the DCEU and Arrowverse.

I just figured older actor (Keaton is pushing seventy) + Batman + Flashpoint = Thomas Wayne. True, he could still be playing Burton Bruce Wayne in a multiverse story, but that seems a bit convoluted for a single movie (Crisis was what, half a dozen episodes?)

Everything I'm reading on it says he's reprising as Burtonverse Wayne with the story set 30 years after the conclusion of Returns (Forever and Batman & Robin are being disregarded). They're basically taking real time into account. Keep in mind, DCEU Flashpoint may be a much looser adaption of the story, much like the Arrowverse adaption prior to it, rather than following the comic story to a T.

Crisis was five episodes (Supergirl, Batwoman, The Flash, Legends, and Arrow) and one tie-in "bonus" episode of Black Lightning that was independent of the Crisis story but ended with the Antimatter wave wiping out its unnumbered Earth.
