Ben Affleck Reportedly Reprising Batman Role For ‘The Flash’

Vanity Fair reports that actor Ben Affleck will be returning as Batman for the upcoming Flash film as he agreed to to join the film’s cast this week.

Director Andy Muschietti confirmed the news and gave the following quote.

MUSCHIETTI: “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.”

They also add that Michael Keaton is still part of of the film in a “substantial role”.

Affleck left the role as the solo Batman film changed over to Matt Reeves and new actor Robert Pattinson.

It’ll be interesting to see how they tackle two on-screen Batmans.
