Actor Ben Affleck has officially signed on to return as Batman in director Andy Muschietti's film of the DC Comics character The Flash.
They just confirmed that Ben affleck is ready to reprise the role of Batman in the movie The Flash which will hit theaters in 2022. It seems that the fastest man on Earth will travel between different realities of the DC Multiverse. It was already reported that Michael Keaton He will return as the Dark Knight, so there will be different versions of the great hero.
Affleck received the script for the film last week and has now agreed to star in the project.
"It's a very important part of the emotional impact of the movie," explains director Andy Muschietti. “The interaction and relationship between Barry Allen and Ben Affleck's Bruce Wayne will bring an emotional level that we haven't seen before. It's Barry's movie, it's Barry's story, but his characters are more closely 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 Ben Affleck's Batman comes in. "
They will play with the DC Comics Multiverse.
The director also commented that Michael Keaton's Batman will have a "substantial" role, but that it wouldn't work for Flash to meet another Batman without "the original" being part of the process. "He is the baseline," says the director. “It's part of that unaltered state before launching into Barry's adventure. There is a familiarity there.
In the same interview, producer Barbara Muschietti reveals that she was surprised that Ben Affleck was happy to return as Batman due to previous comments he made about playing the character, but noted that “he's in a very different time in his life now. Right now he's in a place where he can really enjoy being Batman. It's a fundamental role, but at the same time it's a fun part ”.
Again, this is news we never saw coming, but Affleck's Batman now will hopefully get the send-off he deserves, and who knows what else this could lead to in the future.
In summary, in the next few years we will see the Batman of Robert Pattinson, that of Ben affleck and that of Michael Keaton at the cinema.
