Affleck won't be the only Cape Crusader to join the cast, as Michael Keaton, the protagonist of both Tim Burton's Batman films released in 1989 (Batman) and 1992 (Batman Returns) will also reprise his role for the film directed by Andy Muschietti.
In the interview given to Vanity Fair, the It director described Affleck's portrayal of the iconic superhero as a very vulnerable character, marking a distinct contrast with his physicality.
“His Batman has a dichotomy that is very strong, which is his masculinity — because of the way he looks, and the imposing figure that he has, and his jawline — but he’s also very vulnerable. He knows how to deliver from the inside out, that vulnerability. He just needs a story that allows him to bring that contrast, that balance.”
The Flash is scheduled to premiere on 3rd June 2022, featuring Ezra Miller as the titular Barry Allen appearing in parallel dimensions and meeting different versions of DC’s heroes, as the story will be an adaptation of the Flashpoint storyline.
