Ben Affleck has confirmed that he will be reprising his role as Batman for the last time in the upcoming The Flash movie.
In an interview with The LA Times, he said:
“It was really Justice League that was the nadir for me. That was a bad experience because of a confluence of things: my own life, my divorce, being away too much, the competing agendas and then Zack’s personal tragedy and the reshooting. It just was the worst experience. It was awful.
It was everything that I didn’t like about this. That became the moment where I said, ‘I’m not doing this anymore.’ It’s not even about, like, Justice League was so bad. Because it could have been anything.”
Affleck won’t be the only Batman making a comeback in The Flash, as Michael Keaton’s Batman from the 1989 Tim Burton movie is also set to appear.
The Flash will premiere on 4 November 2022.
