It’s been revealed that Ben Affleck will return as Batman in the upcoming The Flash movie alongside Ezra Miller and Michael Keaton.
This was rumoured for quite some time, but I never seriously thought it would happen.
However, it seems to be official that Ben Affleck is going to be playing Batman again in The Flash movie.
This means that the film will feature both Affleck and Michael Keaton as different versions of Batman.
Now, all they need is to bring back Christian Bale as Batman and we can get that Batman: Into The Batman-Verse movie we all want.
This news was revealed by Vanity Fair who spoke to the film’s director, Andy Mushietti.

“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,” Muschietti told the outlet.
“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.”
It was also revealed that Affleck got the script and agreed last week to join the project.
“He’s a very substantial part of the emotional impact of the movie. The interaction and relationship between Barry and Affleck’s Wayne will bring an emotional level that we haven’t seen before,” the director added.
“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.”
“I’m glad to be collaborating with someone who has been on both sides of the camera, too,” Muschietti said adding: “He understands.”
