It looks like Ben Affleck is set to step into the mantle of Batman for yet another DC film.
The one of The Flash should have been the last appearance of Ben Affleck as Batman and for the moment it is, but some rumors claim that the actor will return to wear the role of the Dark Knight for yet another film before his final farewell.
We know well that after the release of The Flash and before the launch of the new DC Universe by James Gunn and Per Safran, two other films related to the previous narrative universe will be released: Blue Beetle in August and Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom in December. Precisely in this last film, Ben Affleck should appear, for one last time.
In July 2022, Jason Momoa had revealed that he had filmed scenes with Ben Affleck and at the same time the presence of Michael Keaton’s Batman in the James Wan sequel was also confirmed. Later, in fact, Momoa had declared that he had shot sequences with “a couple of Batmansbut not sure which one would end up in the final cut.
Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom and the DCU, James Wan: “We had to make changes until the last minute”
After the events of The Flash, especially in the final reveal, an appearance by Affleck and one by Keaton would no longer make much sense. We’ll see if the scenes will be deleted altogether or not.
