Ben Affleck Batman is returning again on big screens. DCEU is going to bring Ben Affleck again in the Flash movie. Affleck’s Batman was quite popular among fans. However, fans got dishearted when DCEU canceled the solo Batman movie. However, The Flash solo movie coming in 2022 is going to be epic. It will include Ben Affleck’s version of Batman. After Batman VS Superman’s failure at the box office, DCEU had to scrap all the future plans for Affleck’s batman. Fans and the audience understood DCEU’s frustration. The Marvel universe is progressing day by day bringing new things for the fans. However, DC wants to upgrade their game as well.
A proper goodbye to Ben Affleck
But, there is going to be a twist for the fans. According to SR’s theory. Batman will die in the Flash movie. It makes a lot of sense. Ben made his debut in the DC world for the first time as Batman in Batman VS Superman. The film got bad reviews. It also failed to earn big at the box office. But, it happened again with DC in 2017 with Justice League. So, DC canceled all the future plans for Ben Affleck’s Batman. We never got to see what could have happened with Affleck’s Batman. So, this way fans would say a proper goodbye to “Batfleck”. This way DC would make a path for Robert Pattinson’s Batman. DC has a lot planned for the Batman. Ben was supposed to play that movie but DC did not want to take any further risk. DC really wants their multi-universe to get the same treatment as Marvel. However, the upcoming flash movie can be good for DC’s future.
In Justice League 2017, Batman played as a mentor for flash and we saw the same relationship as Ironman/Spider-man. So, it will be good to see some bonding between Bruce Wayne and Barry Allen. However, we got to see a very dark batman in Justice League so we are definitely going to see some redemption as well. Both flash and batman will fight the enemy for the betterment of society.
Fans really appreciated that dark and ruthless version of Batman. This movie will be a good move for Dc to understand The Batman with a clean slate. The Flash movie is all set to be released in 2022.
Michael Keaton’s Batman to make an appearance.
Another shocking detail was revealed in the DC Fandom event that Michael Keaton’s Batman will be making an appearance in the Flash movie. Michael Keaton played as Batman in Tim Burton’s batman. Both Affleck and Keaton will be returning to play their iconic roles. It is not confirmed yet how they manage the two batman’s ion one movie. Fans are nervous that it can affect flash’s screen time. Two iconic Batmen in one movie can mess the movie. However, we hope that DC has all figured out. After the failure of the Justice League, It is the only hope for Warner Bros to make something iconic as Marvel’s universe.
