A new report has been released stating that Warner Bros. is deciding between two cuts of the upcoming ‘The Batman’, and it could potentially involve Barry Keoghan's character. Batman is one of the most beloved and popular characters in comic book history, and as such, he has been adapted to other media for years. Co-written and directed by Matt Reeves, ‘The Batman’ is a reboot of the ‘Batman’ franchise and separate from the DC Extended Universe. Robert Pattinson stars as the Caped Crusader in a stellar cast that also includes Keoghan, Zoë Kravitz, Paul Dano, Jeffrey Wright, John Turturro, Andy Serkis, and Colin Farrell.

The Batman will follow Bruce Wayne in his second year as ‘Batman’. ‘Batman’ comes across the threat of The Riddler (Dano), who is a serial killer akin to the Zodiac killer in this adaptation. Riddler seems to have some sort of vendetta against Gotham and specific members of the city. Batman will also have to deal with Oswald Cobblepot/The Penguin (Farrell) and the Falcone crime family. In addition to all of this, he comes across thief Selina Kyle/Catwoman (Kravitz).

Now, per THR, there are reports of WB deciding between two cuts of the movie, which could potentially involve Keoghan's character. It has been reported already that Keoghan will play a Gotham City police officer named Stanley Merkel. However, there have been rumors going around that he will be playing the iconic Batman villain, ‘The Joker’. THR mentions that they do not know much about Keoghan's Merkel, but one of the two cuts has "a certain character" in it, which could potentially be The Joker, and another source of theirs is saying that WB has decided on which cut to go with.
