Just before the DC Fandome event, The Hollywood Reporter has reported that Ben Affleck will be returning to reprise his role as Bruce Wayne/ Batman in “The Flash” film. This news comes as a surprise as the actor previously announced that he would not be reprising his role as the character in any future projects. This news was confirmed by Andy Muschietti, the director of the film.
Andy had this to say about Ben Affeck’s return.
“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,” Muschietti told Vanity Fair‘s Anthony Breznican “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.”
No other details are confirmed at this time, however stay tuned for more DC news during DC Fandome this weekend.
