The big movie news today – well, as long as you haven’t had enough of superheroes by now of course – is that Ben Affleck will reprise his role as Batman for DC’s upcoming The Flash. This means that he will be appearing in the same film as Michael Keaton in which both are playing Batman again, as Ezra Miller’s Flash aka Barry Allen encounters various different versions of the Caped Crusader. Okay – even I’m a little excited. Just a little.
Speaking to ‘Vanity Fair’, director Andy Muschietti said:
“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. 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. I’m glad to be collaborating with someone who has been on both sides of the camera, too. He understands.”
Fortunately their mothers don’t share the same name.
June 3rd 2021 is the release date – at the moment.
