Outside of the MCU, the possible encounter between different versions of the same superhero also generates a furor. When The Flash Arrives in theaters, the multiverse will also be a matter for the DCEU, with the scarlet corridor coming into contact with different parallel realities. In this way, we will see in the same movie the Batman of Ben Affleck and Michael Keaton, as confirmed since 2020. However, it seems that there is bad news for those who wanted to see both Batmen in the same scene.
The news comes from Ben Affleck himself, who recently met on the show. Jimmy Kimmel Live. There the subject of The Flash and the presence of multiple (or at least two) vigilantes from Gotham City. In fact, the driver wanted to know if George Clooney – the masked man from Batman & robin– will also feature in the film. I can tell you no. I don’t think so… Yes he is, he hasn’t told me, ”Affleck responded in the first place.
He added at once that, as far as he knows, Clooney has no interest in dressing up as Bat Man again. And it is a fact that the actor of The big scam has always expressed his contempt for the infamous Batman & robin. On the other hand, it is not ruled out that it does appear in The Flash without Affleck knowing. After all, as the star of League of Justice, he himself shot his scenes of The Flash without interacting with Michael Keaton.
«[Clooney] can be very cautious. As far as I know, he doesn’t want to go back to that level of hood ear height. But i don’t think i’m in the movie The Flash. I didn’t even see Michael Keaton though, so maybe [Clooney] be there«, It revealed.
By pointing out not having seen Michael Keaton on the film set, what Ben Affleck is evidently hinting at is that his characters will not exchange glances or words. As they belong to alternate universes, it is understandable that the intervention of both Batman occurs in different sequences. But either way, it would have been great to see them walk the streets of Gotham together.
On the other hand, perhaps we should be grateful that, even if it was solo, Keaton was part of The Flash. Months ago, the veteran actor questioned his return as Bruce Wayne due to a very tight schedule. So disconnected was he from the project that he could not reveal any details of the film, simply because he knew practically nothing.
«To be honest with you, somewhere on my iPad there is an itinerary with everything from The Flash and I have not even had time to see it, “he explained to Deadline. «I called them [a Warner] And I said, ‘I have to be honest with you. I can’t see any of this right now. I am so focused on a project that I am developing, I am preparing everything and producing, leaving everything ready to return in the fall and there I will be. I feel responsible. ‘
And I add:
I’m not trying to be cool or shy, if I told you something about The Flash, I would be lying to you. I do not know much. I have to see the last draft of the script.
The Flash, from director Andy Muschietti, will hit theaters on November 4, 2022.
The entry Ben Affleck says he does not share scenes with Michael Keaton in The Flash was first published in Cinema PREMIERE.
