WATCH: Looks like Ben Affleck had a lot of fun returning to Batman role in The Flash…

October 5th, 2021 by Marc Comments

We all know that Ben Affleck will be reprising his role as Batman/Bruce Wayne in the upcoming The Flash movie (here) and now the star has talked about how it felt putting on the suit again.

It’s no secret that Affleck has had a bumpy ride playing the role that was so bad that his own standalone Batman movie was scrapped and he stood down from the role after the Justice League fiasco.

However, it seems that he enjoyed playing the Dark Knight again, saying he had a ‘great time’ and that “It was a really nice way to revisit that as the prior experience had been difficult”.

Now, we’re not saying this lends any credence to the rumours that he is secretly developing a Batman project with HBO Max (here) but given that one of the main reasons fans believe he wouldn’t return was due to how much he hated being Batman, we reckon that we may yet see more of Affleck’s Batman in the future.

And that would be a dream come true for many of us.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
