Just because his involvement in “The Batman” is null and void, doesn’t mean the end of Ben Affleck’s Batman. Affleck will return one more time as the Caped Crusader in the upcoming “The Flash” movie, with Ezra Miller as Barry Allen aka The Flash, and Andy Muschietti directing.
Per Vanity Fair, Affleck agreed to the project after seeing the script last week, with Muschietti stating:
“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. 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.”
Also returning for the “Flash” film is Michael Keaton, who played Batman in the 1989 Tim Burton film, appearing in what Muschietti said was a “substantial” part.
