Ben Affleck returns as Batman in the Flash movie – alongside Michael Keaton

Ben Affleck returns as Batman in the “Flash” movie – alongside Michael Keaton!

How many times Ben Affleck has stated that he will no longer slip into the role of Batman and why he said goodbye to “The Batman” project can hardly be counted. But now the tide is completely turned.

After “Batman V Superman”, “Justice League” and “Suicide Squad”, Ben Affleck should actually get into the bat costume at least once and also stand behind the camera of “The Batman”. But he decided against it. The reason: Too much alcohol in his life back then and too little passion for blockbuster films (his own words!). Now he has obviously changed his mind.

As Vanity Fair reports, Affleck will play Bruce Wayne, Batman, in the DC film “The Flash”. At the side of Ezra Miller as Barry Allen, he becomes the Dark Knight again. But he won’t be the only Batman in “The Flash” …

Ben Affleck’s Batman meets Michael Keaton’s Batman in “The Flash”

As already reported, Michael Keaton will slip into his batsuit again – now officially. Keaton played Wayne back in 1989 in Tim Burton’s “Batman” and the sequel “Batman’s Return”. So we’ll see more than one Batman in “The Flash”.

What has already emerged is now becoming official: The DCEU is becoming a multiverse. In the TV series of the Arrowverse (as well as the comics, of course) it has already been shown that the different DC series are set in different versions of the universe. With the “The Flash” movie, this idea is now being transferred to the big screen.

The DCEU becomes a multiverse

“Flashpoint” serves as a template for “The Flash”

Incidentally, the idea for the Multiverse did not come from “The Flash” director Andy Muschietti (“Es”), nor did it come from a screenwriter or producer. The DC comic series “Flashpoint” from 2011 serves as the basis for the new universe full of time travel and various incarnations of superheroes.

If you want to see the comics, you will find it on Amazon *, among other places. You can see “The Flash” in the cinema on June 30, 2022 losmovies.
