Justice League star Ben Affleck becomes the Flashpoint version of Batman in a new piece of fan art inspired by the DC Extended Universe.
Ben Affleck’s debut as Batman in Zack Snyder’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice was one of the more well-received aspects of the DC Comics movie. However, Ben Affleck’s return as Batman in Justice League would put the nail in the coffin as the actor’s final time in the cape and cowl before retiring from the role.
Since then, fans have been curious to know what more could have done with Ben Affleck’s Batman and some have imagined this version of the Caped Crusader would have looked like in a feature film adaptation of the classic Flashpoint storyline. Now, a new concept design from digital artist Hasan Kazi gives fans an idea of what Ben Affleck’s Batman could look like with a costume inspired by the Flashpoint storyline.
You can check out the Flashpoint-inspired artwork with Ben Affleck’s Batman below.

For those unaware, the Flashpoint storyline in the comics followed The Flash as he navigated an altered DC Universe. In this alternate world, Thomas Wayne became Batman after his son, Bruce, was murdered and his wife, Martha, consequently went mad and became the Joker.
Warner Bros. and DC will now move forward with a new version of Batman completely unrelated to Ben Affleck’s incarnation. Full plot details for The Batman are currently under wraps, though the film will center around a younger Bruce Wayne and features a Rogues’ Gallery of villains that includes Catwoman, The Penguin, and The Riddler. The Matt Reeves film will follow Batman during his formative years as Gotham City’s protector and will make use of the Dark Knight’s detective skills to a greater extent than previous DC films. It is expected to be the first chapter in a new trilogy with Robert Pattinson as Batman.
Directed by Matt Reeves from a script he co-wrote with Mattson Tomlin, The Batman stars Robert Pattinson as the Caped Crusader, Zoe Kravitz as Catwoman, and Paul Dano as the Riddler. Westworld star Jeffrey Wright was recently reported to be in talks for the role of Commissioner James Gordon.
The Batman will be released in theaters on June 25, 2021. Stay tuned for the latest news regarding Ben Affleck and the future of the DC Extended Universe.
