Filming for ‘The Flash’ has already started and director Andy Muchietti (‘It: The Thing’) surprised fans by posting the first image of Michael Keaton’s Batman costume, at least in part.
In the image, we see the symbol of the classic uniform worn by Batman in “Batman – The Return”, directed by Tim Burton in 1992.
What’s intriguing is that the symbol is covered in drops of blood and looks a bit dusty, suggesting that Mr. Wayne may have retired decades ago.
It’s worth remembering that Ben Affleck will also reprise his role as Dark Knight in the film, the announcement of which has many fans wondering what prompted him to make that decision.
During an interview with Vanity Fair, producer Barbara Muschietti said the star dropped the character because he was going through a bad time, but is now ready to relive DCEU’s Batman.
“There was a lot of speculation and things he himself said about having a hard time playing Batman, and it was difficult for him. I think he gave up because he was going through a difficult time in his personal life. When we approached him, he seemed to be at a different time. He was very open to the idea [de reprisar o papel], which surprised us. “We are all human and we have been through difficult situations. I’m glad he’s now interested in returning, as Batman’s presence will be crucial and exciting, as well as having a fun feel.
In the same interview, Andy explained what makes the Batman version of Affleck so important to the character’s legacy.
“Ben Affleck’s Batman has a very strong dichotomy, which is his masculinity – because of his looks, his towering figure, and his jawline – but he also has a vulnerability. He needs a story that highlights this contrast, this balance.
Scheduled for release June 3, 2022, ‘The Flash’ will feature Barry Allen / Flash (Ezra Miller) traveling through time to prevent the murder of his mother. However, when he returns to the present, his mother is still alive…. but the world is a nightmare. The Justice League never existed and Barry must do everything to correct all his faults.
