Halloween has already come and gone, however there are fairly a couple of movie star costumes that followers are nonetheless speaking about. One of these is courtesy of Supernatural star Jensen Ackles, who debuted photographs of himself carrying a fairly spectacular Batman costume earlier this week. The costume garnered numerous consideration from followers — and one among Ackles’ costars, Jeffrey Dean Morgan. Morgan, who portrayed Ackles’ onscreen dad within the collection, took to Instagram to touch upon the Batsuit. Morgan mentioned that the costume was “awesome”, and that he loves it much more as a result of he’s “Batman’s dad.”
This remark, after all, is a reference to Morgan portraying Thomas Wayne in Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice. In the time since that movie debuted, there was a short chance that Morgan would get to reprise his function in a Flashpoint film, which might have drawn inspiration from the DC Comics storyline of the identical identify. The storyline sees Bruce Wayne dying as a substitute of his dad and mom, main Thomas to change into Batman and Martha (performed by Morgan’s The Walking Dead co-star Lauren Cohan) to change into The Joker.
“Zack [Snyder] and I’m going again to Watchmen days,” Morgan mentioned throughout a panel look in 2017. “So I’ve obtained somewhat little bit of relationship with the DC losers. He referred to as me a yr earlier than we shot that…I met Lauren. It was nice. I nonetheless see Lauren. It was nice and yeah, is there one other plan for that Thomas Wayne character? We’ll see. I do not know. I’d love to be the darkish Batman. That’s the darkest Batman there may be. God is aware of I embrace the darkness.”
Ultimately, the Flashpoint film was reportedly reworked right into a solo The Flash film, that means that we’d not get to see Morgan go well with up as the alternate Caped Crusader anytime quickly. But it appears like Morgan could be greater than prepared to tackle the function, if he obtained the chance to.
“Look, I don’t know, I mean if there’s a chance that would ask me, I’d say yes,” Morgan instructed ComicBook.com earlier this yr. “I believe the Flashpoint story is, it is my favourite story. I’d love to do it. But, you realize, DC is DC they usually’re, you realize, it is a fixed… it looks as if they’re at all times kinda switching up who’s operating it and what they’re gonna do. So hopefully, what I’d like to see is somewhat continuity with DC, have them get on the observe, after which, man I’d be honored and love to do it greater than something.”
