Affleck Liked Playing Batman in ‘The Flash’ More than in ‘Justice League’


The upcoming DC Comics film The Flash put the fun back into Batman for Ben Affleck, after the actor endured Joss Whedon’s 2017 film Justice League, Variety reports.


Affleck will reprise his role as Bruce Wayne/Batman in the Andy Muschietti-directed The Flash, starring Ezra Miller in the title role.


“It was a really nice way to revisit that as the prior experience had been difficult,” Affleck told Variety at a tastemaker screening of his upcoming George Clooney-directed coming-of-age drama The Tender Bar. “This was really lovely. Really fun.”


He also said, “I had a great time,” before cracking, “I’m probably under some gag order that I’m not even aware that I probably just violated and I’m now going to be sued.”


The Flash is scheduled to be released in the U.S. on November 4, 2022.
