Ben Affleck’s Batman is returning for The Flash film however there appears to be a very good probability that his model of Bruce Wayne is killed off on this return. It is a principle lots of people are going to hate however, should you have a look at the the entire information, I look ahead to seeing should you suppose it’s true. For the file, I don’t need Ben Affleck’s Batman to die! I feel he is without doubt one of the greatest do ever don the cape and cowl, if not the outright winner of such a title. Nevertheless, in saying Affleck’s return as Batman in what’s an adaptation of the Flashpoint comedian, it additionally looks like the filmmakers are teasing the character’s finale.
Affleck was introduced as returning to his Batman position for The Flash when an interview with director Andy Muschietti revealed Affleck is “a really substantial and emotional affect of the film.” We additionally know Bruce Wayne will design The Flash’s new swimsuit that we noticed at DC FanDome however we don’t know WHICH Bruce Wayne. That swimsuit shall be worn when he crosses paths with Michael Keaton’s Batman, so it’s doable however I’m gonna say unlikely it got here from Keaton’s Bruce. It extra possible got here from Affleck’s.
Comedian ebook followers know that when Barry Allen goes again in time, it’s in an try to stop his mom Nora Allen’s demise. In doing so, he creates the Flashpoint occasion and every part will get flipped round and the universe modifications as an entire. However, Barry would possibly simply stumble upon that call by a heavy emotional second resembling shedding Bruce Wayne, a personality who took him beneath his wing and coached him up as a hero when all Barry was actually in search of was mates. He would possibly see a chance not solely to save lots of his mother but additionally his tremendous hero pal.
Moreover, this provides the followers a chance to get closure with Affleck’s Batman. I do know that for me, when it was revealed Keaton was returning in The Flash, I used to be sitting there questioning how they’re simply going to disregard Ben’s Batman. They’ll’t simply go away that absolutely open-ended as a result of for the remainder of Ben Affleck’s life! He’ll endlessly be like Ewan McGregor at each press junket being requested if he’ll ever return to the position of Obi Wan from Star Wars. If Ben’s Batman dies, he’s free of the load of this franchise and Keaton is in place to supervise the saga going ahead, as his Batman’s gig is described as a DC equal to what Nick Fury does within the Marvel movies, principally watching everybody and training up younger heroes. After all, there are most likely different methods to present a way of finality for Affleck’s character, however none extra definitive than an emotionally impactful demise which may include a legacy impacting remaining heroes.
It’s doable that the filmmakers will see the overwhelmingly constructive response to Ben Affleck returning as Batman and determine to maintain him alive. It’s additionally doable that I’m mistaken, and Ben’s Bat was by no means gonna die within the first place. However when Flashpoint is alleged and executed with and the multiverse purges unfastened ends into one clear canon, it doesn’t look like Ben Affleck’s Batman goes to play a job in future tales. Then once more, it didn’t look like we’d see him once more earlier than any of this, so something is feasible.
