Rumor: Ben Afflecks Batman to face Michael Keatons Batman in the Flash

Many are excited to see Michael Keaton (Birdman or (The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance) – 91%, Beetlejuice, the super ghost –

81% Hunger for Power – 83%) like Batman in The Flash movie, but we can’t forget that we’ll also have Ben Affleck (Argo – 96%, Armageddon – 39%, The Accountant – 51%) as Batman and that the most recent leaks showed us that he will star in great action sequences. Now a new rumor could excite and worry fans at the same time, as it is said that we will see the two versions of the superhero face off.

Keaton’s Batman is a classic, the two films in which he appeared marked a before and after in the history of the DC Comics character, which led to the famous animated series of the 90s. As for Affleck, he had a complicated task , get fans to accept it after the excellent trilogy starring Christian Bale (American Psycho – 67%, Empire of the Sun – 70%, Hostiles: American Violence – 81%), and managed to win over numerous fans who consider him the best version of the superhero to date

So that in The Flash we can see both Batmans, it is necessary to introduce the concept of the multiverse, which has long existed in the comics and already had a television adaptation with the series Crisis on Infinite Earths. We do not know how the multiverse will present itself to us in The Flash, but it is very possible that Barry Allen is responsible.

According to Geekosity, an insider let them know that we will see a scene where Michael Keaton Y Ben affleck they will face each other. The scene was described as brief, but no further details were given, so the site speculates if it could be a confrontation of the two actors without their Batman costume, or a confrontation of two Bruce Waynes.

Most interestingly, he said that Keaton would be the winner in the brief altercation, which was most likely the result of a misunderstanding. Taking into account that Affleck far exceeds Keaton in stature, and that the latter is older, we can assume that experience and intelligence will defeat brute force, but we will have to wait.

We must remember that this is nothing more than a rumor, and even if the scene was shot, there is no guarantee that we will see it in the final cut. There are many examples of rumors that were not fulfilled due to last minute changes, such as the one that said that Ryan Reynolds (Deadpool – 84%, Squad 6 – 70%, Free Guy) would play Green Lantern in Zack Snyder’s Justice League – 82% and in the end it did not happen, but later the director said that he did consider Reynolds for a cameo as the character.

The DC movie universe has gone through several stages, but we can mark Justice League as a watershed – 41%. After the failure of Batman vs Superman: Dawn of Justice – 27%, Warner Bros. drastically modified Zack Snyder’s film (300 – 60%, Watchmen, The Watchers – 65%, The Man of Steel – 55% ) and gave rise to a new era with films and less obscure superheroes such as Shazam! – 88%, Aquaman – 73% and Wonder Woman 1984 – 76%.

The first stage, made up of The Man of Steel, Batman vs Superman: Dawn of Justice, Suicide Squad – 25% and Wonder Woman – 92%, was paving the way for League of Justice, but due to changes from Warner Bros. and director Joss Whedon (Avengers: Age of Ultron – 75%, Much Noise and Few Nuts – 84%, The Avengers – 92%), Snyder’s planned universe was canceled and is now known as SnyderVerse. Fans believe that by lobbying on social media they will be able to convince the studio that it is worth investing in the sequels of Zack Snyder’s Justice League, as well as in the past they convinced him to release the Justice League cut – 41% from Snyder.
