Warner Bros’ upcoming film, The Flash, will have a lot of key players from the DC universe. It’s going to be a big event, to say the least.
Along with Ezra Miller’s take on the speedster, fans are going to get two Batmans (Batmen) with the return of Michael Keaton and Ben Affleck. But that’s not all, the multiversal flick will see the debut of Supergirl into the DCEU, played by Sasha Calle.
The Flash movie will supposedly be Affleck’s goodbye to the caped crusader. As for Keaton, he will make his return to the role after almost 30 years.
Some early set photos gave us glimpses of Keaton and Miller filming outside a court, Calle in Supergirl costume, Batmobile, and Wayne Manor.
Now, set photos have leaked of Affleck’s new Batsuit AND Batcycle/Batpod in Glasgow, Scotland. The Herald Scotland first obtained on-set videos filmed in Glasgow’s George Square and surrounding streets.
The leaks hint at it being a chase scene, and hence, it’s probably a stunt double and not Affleck himself. There was a ‘Gotham Transit Authority’ bus in the area, so it is likely that the set is supposed to be Gotham City.
Although the film will prominently feature Keaton, director Andrés Muschietti assured fans that Affleck will play a crucial role in the story.
Muschietti talked to Vanity Fair about Affleck’s Batman last year in August,
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.Muschietti
Muschietti also hinted at the kind of relationship that will build between Affleck’s Bruce Wayne and Miller’s Barry Allen and how it’ll impact the film.
He’s a very substantial part of the emotional impact of the movie. The interaction and relationship between Barry and Affleck’s Wayne will bring an emotional level that we haven’t seen before.
It’s Barry’s movie, it’s Barry’s story, but their characters are more related than we think. They both lost their mothers to murder, and that’s one of the emotional vessels of the movie. That’s where the Affleck Batman kicks in.Muschietti
The Flash has a theatrical release date set for November 4, 2022.
