Batfleck returns.

Vanity Fair reports that another Batman will be in the next Shine movie, probably join The beloved incarnation of Michael Keaton of the dark knight by Tim Burton Batman movies. This time it’s … well, now second– the most recent actor to don the hood: Ben Affleck, who played the caped crusader in Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice and Justice League before stepping down from the role Last year, after years of speculation about its release.

All of this is based on the fact that Flash-directed by TheAndy Muschietti – with L’incarnation d’Ezra Miller de Barry Allen de Justice League, will take care of wider ramifications from the DC Comic Multiverse of Heroes. The Multiverse Has Already Given Us Crazy Things Like Miller’s Flash meet the televised incarnation of Grant Gustin by Barry in the Crisis on Infinite Earths CW Special.

“His Batman has a dichotomy that’s very strong which is his masculinity – because of his looks, his towering figure and his jawline – but he’s also very vulnerable,” Muschietti told Ben Affleck’s Vanity Fair of Batman, and why he’s needed alongside the other version of the Dark Knight that suddenly invades Barry Allen’s cinematic personal space. “He knows how to deliver this vulnerability from within. He just needs a story that allows him to bring this contrast, this balance.

According to Muschietti, although Flash is clearly Barry’s story, Affleck’s Bruce Wayne will play an important role in the young hero’s emotional story, not only acting as a mentor he can bond with during this eternal shared superhero experience.dead parents– but will act as a baseline for the bats when Multiversal Madness gives poor young Barry a second Batman to deal with. But the presence of Keaton and Affleck in Flash is far more important than fan service or even Barry’s trip. According to Muschietti, this heralds Warner Bros. approach to a multiverse of interpretations of DC characters in the largest possible way.

“This movie is a bit of a pivotal point in the sense that it presents a story that involves a unified universe where all the cinematic iterations we’ve seen before are valid,” continued Muschietti. “It’s inclusive in the sense that it means that everything you have seen exists, and everything you will see exists, in the same unified multiverse.

Sorry, Ben. As we told you: being Batman is forever, that you want it or not. No doubt we will know more FlashCrisis on the Infinite Batmen this weekend at the Warner Bros. online convention, DC Fandome. The film itself is currently ready to go out June 3, 2022.
