Ben Affleck Is Back As Batman


I’ll bet you thought you’re seen the last of Ben Affleck’s Batman when you saw that god-awful Joss Whedon Justice League movie. I mean, they hired that dreamy Robert Pattinson to play Batman and the DCEU looks to be DOA, so no more Batfleck.

But he’s coming back. You can’t stop the Batfleck.

It turns out that Ezra Miller choking the s**t out of some lady is basically no big deal and certainly not a reason to not make a Flash movies, seeing as how Flash is the top show on The CW, Warner is not going to just let that money on the table.

And The Hollywood Reporter reports that Ben Affleck’s Batman will appear alongside Barry Allen in that film.

“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,” Muschietti told Vanity Fair‘s Anthony Breznican  “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.”

Before anyone gets any ideas, Barry Allen’s mother’s name is Nora and not Martha.

Ive heard this Flash movie is based on Flashpoint, a storyline where Barry goes back in time to stop Eobard Thawne, the Reverse Flash, from killing his mother and creates a whole new timeline where Aquaman and Wonder Woman are at war and Thomas Wayne became Batman after a mugger killed his wife and son. It could be a big cosmic reset button the DCEU, because that’s what DC Comics used it for.
