Ben Affleck will return as Batman in Ezra Miller’s upcoming The Flash movie.
According to Vanity Fair, Ben Affleck is officially returning as Batman. Affleck retired from the role of Batman in January 2019 and fans were left with a sour taste in their mouths. Now, it seems they’ll get some closure in the upcoming The Flash movie starring Ezra Miller. The Flash will focus on the legendary Flashpoint storyline and will also feature Michael Keaton’s return as Batman/Bruce Wayne.
The Flash director Andy Muschietti had this to say on Affleck’s return:
His Batman has a dichotomy that is very strong which is his masculinity—because of the way he looks, and the imposing figure that he has, and his jawline —but he’s also very vulnerable, he knows how to deliver from the inside out, that vulnerability. He just needs a story that allows him to bring that contrast, that balance. 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.
