THE FLASH Set Photos and Videos Feature Ben Affleck’s Batman in a New Suit Riding a Batcycle.
Some new photos and videos have surfaced from the set of Andy Muschietti’s The Flash. We get our first look at Ben Affleck reprising his role of Batman and the very cool-looking new Batcycle he will be showing off.
When previously talking about Affleck’s role in the film, the director shared, “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 went on to explain, “[Affleck] is the baseline. He’s part of that unaltered state before we jump into Barry’s adventure. There’s a familiarity there.”

The movie also star Ezra Miller as Barry Allen, Michael Keaton as Batman, and Sasha Calle as Supergirl. Kiersey Clemons is playing Iris West, and Ron Livingston and Maribel Verdú are playing Barry’s parents. Saoirse-Monica Jackson (Derry Girls) and internet personality Rudy Mancuso have also been cast in undisclosed roles.
This movie is going to break open the DC multiverse, and the director previously teased “all that you’ve seen exists.” The Flash will see Barry Allen “breaking the bonds of physics to crash into various parallel dimensions, where he’ll encounter slightly different versions of DC’s classic heroes.”
The director previously explained things a little further regarding how this new DC Multiverse is actually going to work in The Flash, saying:
“This movie is a bit of a hinge in the sense that it presents a story that implies a unified universe where all the cinematic iterations that we’ve seen before are valid. It’s inclusive in the sense that it is saying all that you’ve seen exists, and everything that you will see exists, in the same unified multiverse.”
He went on to share:
“I will tell you is that it’s a ride. 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 director also previously explained that the film will be a time travel story, saying:
“His mother was murdered, his father was trained and incarcerated, and all his journey from then was a man trying to make things right…the script really capture his loquacity, his personality…he’s someone who has the power of changing events of the past, but by doing so, can deteriorate the very fabric of the space-time continuum.”
The Flash is being written by Christina Hodson, and it’s set to hit theaters on November 4, 2022.
