Ben Affleck Returning As Batman For The Flash



Ben Affleck will once again play Batman in the DC Extended Universe it has been announced.

Affleck will return as the Caped Crusader in Andy Muschietti’s Flash film starring Ezra Miller Vanity Fair reports.

The news has come out of the blue and shocked fans after Affleck departed the role almost two years ago. With the renewed energy surrounding DC Films, the Oscar winner has decided to don the cape and cowl for one last hurrah?

Affleck got the Flash script at the end of last week and agreed this week to join the project. Director Muschietti had this to say in regards to 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.”

“I’m glad to be collaborating with someone who has been on both sides of the camera, too, he understands.”
