Zack Snyder confirmed his original plan to sacrifice Ben Affleck’s Batman in his Justice League trilogy.
Before a personal tragedy led to Zack Snyder departing Justice League during the post-credit and Warner Bros. subsequently released its plans for the DC Extended Universe, the filmmaker envisioned a trilogy of films that was said to conclude with Ben Affleck’s Batman sacrificing himself in a battle against Darkseid. When a Vero user asked Zack Snyder about the plan to sacrifice Ben Affleck’s Batman in his original Justice League trilogy, Zack Snyder confirmed these details, writing, “we always had that plan we would see that in [the] final chapter.”
Of course, Zack Snyder’s vision for Justice League never came to be after plans for a trilogy were scrapped and Warner Bros. significantly retooled his cut of the first film. Instead, Justice League concluded with Ben Affleck’s Batman setting a base for the newly formed team.

Of course, Ben Affleck’s time as Batman has officially come to an end anyway after just two appearances in Batman v Superman and Justice League as well as a cameo in Suicide Squad. Now, Robert Pattinson will bring a new version of Bruce Wayne to life in Matt Reeves’ The Batman and while a previous rumor suggested this incarnation of the character would be a younger version of Ben Affleck’s Caped Crusader, this turned out to be false as there will be no connection between the two.
Here is the official synopsis for Zack Snyder’s Justice League:
Fueled by his restored faith in humanity and inspired by Superman’s selfless act, Bruce Wayne enlists the help of his newfound ally, Diana Prince, to face an even greater enemy. Together, Batman and Wonder Woman work quickly to find and recruit a team of metahumans to stand against this newly awakened threat. But despite the formation of this unprecedented league of heroes—Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg and The Flash—it may already be too late to save the planet from an assault of catastrophic proportions.
Directed by Zack Snyder, Justice League stars Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, Amy Adams, Gal Gadot, Ezra Miller, Jason Momoa, Ray Fisher, Jeremy Irons, Diane Lane, Connie Nielsen, J. K. Simmons, and Ciarán Hinds.
