Ben Affleck is back in impressive Batman shape ahead of his return to the DCEU in The Flash.
After the release of Justice League in 2017 as well as his official departure from directing, co-writing and starring in The Batman, it looked like Ben Affleck would be saying goodbye to his role as Bruce Wayne in the DCEU for good. However, fans were taken by surprise when it was announced that he would be reprising his role in Andy Muschietti’s The Flash alongside Ezra Miller.
Recent photos of the Academy Award-winner have surfaced the web, showcasing a welcome return back to his incredible physique as the Caped Crusader in the DCEU. You can check out these photos down below, courtesy of the Daily Mail:
Ben Affleck’s Batman will continue to serve as a mentor to Ezra Miller’s The Flash, as previously established in Justice League and further explored in the Snyder Cut earlier this year. The character is also said to be substantial to the emotional impact of the film, given his relationship to the titular Scarlet Speedster.

Directed by Andy Muschietti from a script written by Birds of Prey scribe Christina Hodson, The Flash will be inspired by the Flashpoint comic storyline, which followed The Flash as he navigated an altered DC Universe. Written by Geoff Johns and penciled by Andy Kuber, Flashpoint radically altered the status of the DC Comics universe and led to the launch of the New 52 titles. It is currently unknown how much inspiration the upcoming Ezra Miller film will take from the comic.
The Flash is set to hit theaters on November 4, 2022. Stay tuned for all the latest news regarding the future of the DCEU, Ben Affleck and Batman, and be sure to subscribe to Heroic Hollywood’s YouTube channel for more exclusive video content!
