It seems as though Ben Affleck’s Batman is not going to die in the upcoming The Flash movie after all, even though that was what many people were claiming would happen.
This report comes to us from our good friends over at Geekosity and I really hope they’re right on this one.
Ben Affleck’s Batman is one of the best things about the SnyderVerse and I personally would really love to see him return after The Flash film.
So, it had been reported that the reason why Affleck agreed to return to play Batman in The Flash film was because it offered him a good way of saying goodbye to the role.
I must say, that could still be the case.
However, it sounds as though the movie will not see us having to shed tears at the death of Ben Affleck’s Dark Knight.
Here’s what Geekosity’s sources had to tell them about the upcoming DC Comics movie:
Killing off Ben Affleck in The Flash takes the focus away from Ezra Miller and Michael Keaton’s Batman. This isn’t Endgame. It’s not Affleck’s story. His death would need to be the heart of the movie.
They then went on to add the following:
It would create the worst PR backlash in DC Films’ history after the success of Zack Snyder’s Justice League.
Looks like Ben Affleck’s Batman won’t end up dying in The Flash film
This does make sense to me.
There’s also going to be a lot of Batmen in this movie: two to be exact.
Michael Keaton will be returning as his version of Batman from the Tim Burton movies.
We’ve already seen pictures of Keaton on The Flash’s set.
So, having one of the Batmen die might be a bit much for this movie as it is a Flash film.
The focus will have to be on Ezra Miller’s Flash – not the two Batmen.
That said, I do wonder whether Keaton’s Batman might end up popping his clogs in this movie.
