The fact that Ben Affleck will return to the role of Batman in ‘The Flash’ also seems to promise more actor participation in the DCEU future.
Ben Affleck confirmed participation in Andy Muschietti’s ‘The Flash’
No more rumors, Ben Affleck will return to the role of Dark Knight in Andy Muschietti’s film ‘The Flash’ (IT series). While not directly exploiting the classic Flashpoint plot as many previously hoped, ‘The Flash’ is expected to take Barry Allen to explore the Multiverse world, where he will meet different versions of Bruce Wayne (including including Michael Keaton’s Batman in the Tim Burton director’s movie).
But the next question everyone asks is how long will Ben Affleck return to this role? Some people think that this is an opportunity for the actor to close his version as DC’s Dark Knight properly. But, could this also be a launch pad for future Batman stories that Ben Affleck could tell, both regarding the DCEU and not?
Ben Affleck’s future as Batman
In the short term, audiences will see Batfleck (Ben Affleck’s Batman version) in 2021 through Zack Snyder’s ‘Justice League’ version and ‘The Flash’ then 2022. Zack Snyder’s ‘Justice League’ version first. when released in 2017, it was planned to reveal more about Justice League part 2 and a solo Batman movie directed by the actor himself – with the appearance of the character Deathstroke.
Bringing Ben Affleck back in any way opens the door to increasing character participation in DC movies. While ‘The Flash’ may seem like a farewell, depending on how the character is handled in the Multiverse, Ben Affleck’s Bruce Wayne may have another DCEU movie in theaters. It could also lead to him rewriting the original Batman series for HBO Max.
While not certain, it is also possible that Zack Snyder will split the current ‘Justice League’ scenes to develop as a mini-series like ‘Watchmen’ or ‘Game of Thrones’ for HBO Max. The channel also needs more engaging genres or content to engage audiences. Hence, Ben Affleck’s reintroduction of Batman in ‘The Flash’ could help him appear again or in theaters, or in another future HBO Max series.
Ben Affleck’s Batman version will be remade?
Plus, seamlessness wouldn’t be an important factor when the Multiverse was introduced. The movie may even begin with Barry Allen going on an adventure in a timeline that originated from the Joss Whedon version, and followed by Zack Snyder’s version of Justice League.
From there, Ben Affleck was able to continue developing his character in that timeline, without affecting anything like that of ‘The Batman’. If anything is surprising, it is ‘The Flash’ that becomes Ben Affleck’s means of returning.
Initially, all expectations were about whether he would develop his own movie or collaborate with Zack Snyder on a project. But agreeing to join The Flash opens up possibilities for future projects Affleck can work on in the Batsuit, as long as he’s willing. Let’s look forward to the news about Ben Affleck’s rotation and the development of DCEU after the upcoming DC FanDome session.
