Ben Affleck & Michael Keaton will return as Batman in The Flash
The virtual convention will provide fans a slew of incredible reveals and surprises about the future of the franchise. In addition, the idea of the multiverse has been the major point of discussion among DC fans, and it is expected that all will be revealed during the event.
“The Flash” will feature Miller’s Barry Allen appearing in parallel dimensions and meeting different versions of DC’s heroes. Michael Keaton, who played Batman/Bruce Wayne in Tim Burton’s 1989 pic and returned to collaborate with the director in 1992’s “Batman Returns,” is also due to appear in “The Flash.”
Director Andy Muschietti spoke about Ben Affleck’s Batman returning to Vanity Fair and said, “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.”
Muschietti added, “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.”
