The film will deal with the DC multiverse and thus will have two iterations of Batman — Ben Affleck and Michael Keaton. Keaton will play the role of the iconic DC superhero for the first time since 1992’s Batman Returns.
In an interview with the YouTube channel Jake’s Takes, Keaton explained how it felt to wear the batsuit once again. He said, “It was shockingly normal. It was weird. Like I went ‘Oh, oh yeah, that’s right.’ But also then you start to play the scenes and a lot of memories, a lot of interesting sense memories (start to come back).”
Apart from Ezra Miller, Michael Keaton and Ben Affleck, the film will also star Sasha Calle, Kiersey Clemons, Maribel Verdú and Ron Livingston.
One of the biggest upcoming DC movies, The Flash will take inspiration from the Flashpoint storyline in comics. In that, Barry goes back in time to undo his mother’s death, but this results in unexpected consequences.
During a panel at DC Fandome, producer Barbara Muschietti had said, “It’s going to be fun and exciting and there are a lot of DC characters in it. Flash is the superhero of this film because he is the bridge between all of these characters and timelines. And in a way, it restarts everything and doesn’t forget anything.”
The Flash is scheduled to be released on November 4, 2022.
