In a recent interview, Ben Affleck further confirmed that he will appear in The Flash as Batman and said that he had a great experience after the difficult filming of Justice League.
“It was a really nice way to revisit that as the prior experience had been difficult,” Affleck told Variety. “I had a great time. I love Ezra [Miller] and I had a chance to see Jason [Momoa], who’s over [in the U.K.] making Aquaman.” Affleck also joked that he’s likely under a gag order that he’s unaware of, so he might get sued for confirming his involvement.
The Flash movie sees Miller reprising his role as the DCEU’s Scarlet Speedster/Barry Allen, who he first portrayed in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Justice League, and Zack Snyder’s Justice League. He also made a surprise appearance in 2019 during The CW’s Crisis on Infinite Earths crossover event.
Joining Miller are Kiersey Clemons as Iris West, Maribel Verdú as Nora Allen, and on-the-rise star Sasha Calle (The Young and the Restless) signing on to star as Supergirl, becoming only the second actress to ever portray the character on the big screen. Golden Globe nominee Ron Livingston has also been cast to replace Billy Crudup as Henry Allen. It has been confirmed that Michael Keaton and Ben Affleck will be reprising their respective versions of Bruce Wayne/Batman for the film.
The Flash movie is directed by IT‘s Andy Muschietti from the latest screenplay written by Christina Hodson. It is executive produced by Marianne Jenkins with Michael Disco and Barbara Muschietti set as producers.
