New set photos from The Flash appear to have revealed a first look at the return of Ben Affleck's Batman.
Affleck's Dark Knight first appeared in 2016's Batman V Superman, before going on to head up Zack Snyder's dark and gritty take on the Justice League. While both movies were critically panned, fans instantly took to Affleck's version of the classic superhero and have long been calling to see him return to the DCEU. Looks like they got their wish.
Take a look at Robert Pattinson's upcoming version of the caped crusader in The Batman below:
For those that may not be aware, The Flash will be a multiverse-hopping adventure in which Ezra Miller's speedster meets various versions of established characters - including Batman. We already knew that he'd be working with both the Affleck and Michael Keaton versions of Batman during the movie, of course, but this is out first proper look at what we're assuming is the "Batfleck" incarnation of the character on a brand-new Bat-cycle.
As you can see below, footage obtained by Luiz Fernando in Glasgow shows Batman pelting through the streets on his slick new ride. While most fans seem to agree that this certainly looks like the DCEU version of the character, there's still every chance it could be yet another alternate version of Batman.
Meanwhile, #TheFlash movie's filming is at full steam in #Glasgow, and many locals are registering what seems to be #BatAffleck's #Batman going for a ride in #GothamCity in #TheFlashMovie - while real #BenAffleck's in a ride with #JLo somewhere else haha. pic.twitter.com/gzSOWN6PRb- Luiz Fernando (@Luiz_Fernando_J) July 26, 2021
Some have pointed out that this couldn't possibly be the Ben Affleck version of the character because the actor was recently spotted on a yacht with Jennifer Lopez hundreds and hundreds of miles away from Glasgow. With that said, there's no reason why Warner Bros. wouldn't be using a stuntman to stand in for Affleck in the above scene, right?
Whatever Bat-escapades are going on here, we'll find out for sure when The Flash hits cinemas on November 4, 2022.
