“The Flash” was for years a lost project that we no longer believed. Taken over by Andy Muschietti, the feature film is more than ever being made since the shooting is currently taking place. On this occasion, Ben Affleck was able to put on the Batman costume again and he delivers his feelings.
The Flash : two Bruce Wayne in the game
Even though Warner and DC allowed the release of Zack Snyder’s Justice League, this does not mean, however, that the extended universe will follow the initial plan. The team of superheroes will not return, according to the latest news, and some main figures may be overlooked. It seems to be the case with Henry Cavill’s Superman and most likely Ben Affleck’s Batman. However, for the latter, the situation is a little different. Although no film will be dedicated to him, he will appear in The Flash. He will not be the only Bruce Wayne to appear in the screenplay because Michael Keaton will also resume the role he held years ago with Tim Burton.
The Flash will venture on the multiverse side following Barry Allen on a trip down memory lane to help his mother. However, his journey will not take place as planned and he will find himself in a reality where Michael Keaton’s Batman is present. We do not know much more about how everything will fit together but comic book fans will have recognized a scenario that is inspired by the arc. Flashpoint. Anyway, if we feared the worst given the turn taken by the development of the project, we are reassured to know that Andy Muschietti is in charge. Unless there is a turnaround or a delay in its design, The Flash must arrive on French screens on November 2, 2022.
Ben Affleck is not done with Batman
Passing through the red carpet of the premiere of The Tender Bar, the new realization of George Clooney in which he plays the main role, Ben Affleck mentioned at Variety his return to Batman:
It was a good way to revisit it after the previous experience which was difficult.
It was really lovely. Really fun.
We will not know more about his place in the film, nor if his time on the screen will be significant. But we’re happy to know he’s back in that role as his incarnation has sometimes been wrongly disliked. For the actor, the time he held this role was certainly not a piece of fun as he experienced depression and a slump on a personal level. We understand then that this comeback must do him the greatest good.
