Ben Affleck to return as Batman in The Flash

Ben Affleck will be seen wearing the cape one more time. This time it is for The Flash standalone movie. This will establish a multiverse. Not just Affleck, Michael Keaton will also be returning as the Caped Crusader.

The Flash will succeed Barry Allen crashing into different timelines. There he will encounter different versions of Batman. Ezra Miller continues to play Barry.

Director Andy Muschietti spoke about Ben Affleck’s Batman coming back to and said, “His Batman has a dichotomy that is very strong, which is his masculinity, because of the way he looks, and the imposing figure that he has, and his jawline, but he’s also very vulnerable. He knows how to deliver from the inside out, that vulnerability. He just needs a story that allows him to bring that contrast, that balance.”

Muschietti added, “The interaction and relationship between Barry and Affleck’s Wayne will bring an emotional level that we haven’t seen before. It’s Barry’s movie, it’s Barry’s story, but their characters are more related than we think. They both lost their mothers to murder, and that’s one of the emotional vessels of the movie. That’s where the Affleck Batman kicks in.”

Andy Muschietti also declared that Michael Keaton will have a “substantial” part in The Flash.

Meanwhile, director Matt Reeves, who is steering The Batman starring Robert Pattinson, debuted the new logo for his upcoming film on Twitter.

The big Batman announcements have come just before the highly anticipated DC FanDome event, the virtual DC convention, that begins on August 22.
