Ever because the first image of Ben Affleck within the Bat-suit was launched from Batman v Superman: Daybreak of Justice, during which the Darkish Knight appears to be like forlornly on the floor instantly earlier than him, one factor was apparent: Ben Affleck didn’t appear thrilled to be sporting a cape for a slew of DC superhero flicks. Realizing what we do now about Joss Whedon’s manufacturing of Justice League, Affleck was presumably much more morose. However it seems the star’s Bat-story had a contented ending in spite of everything, courtesy of his time on The Flash movie.
Talking to Selection after a screening of his new film The Tender Bar, Affleck politicly mentioned: “It was a very nice technique to revisit that because the prior expertise had been tough. This was actually pretty. Actually enjoyable. I had a good time. I’m most likely underneath some gag order that I’m not even conscious that I most likely simply violated and I’m now going to be sued.”
That is, to the perfect of my recollection, the primary time Bat Affleck has ever spoken about his work as a part of the DC Prolonged Universe films as one thing he loved. In the event you look again by way of the recordsdata—in the course of the Unhappy Batman meme, his awkward interviews, the Justice League debacle, after which the lengthy turmoil about whether or not he was or was not going to direct and star in a solo Batman movie—about all he ever mentioned about his private emotions is that he was “excited,” which isn’t essentially a optimistic worth. Pure disasters are “thrilling” to dwell by way of.
So it’s genuinely heartening to listen to that Affleck could have lastly loved donning the cape and cowl for Ezra Miller’s Flash film, which will likely be based mostly on the DC Comics occasion Flashpoint, during which the speedster rewrote the DC Universe. On condition that Michael Keaton is set to seem because the Batman of Tim Burton’s iconic 1989 film, it’s clear DC may have its personal share of multiversal insanity occurring within the movie.
Directed by It’s Andy Muschietti, The Flash is at the moment scheduled to premiere on November 4, 2022. Along with Affleck, Miller, and Keaton, it stars Sasha Calle as Supergirl, Kiersey Clemons as Iris West, Ron Livington as Henry Allen, and extra.
