On account of fan most loved movie producer Kevin Smith, he’s also trusting another Batman turns up in The Flash. On the most late episode of his show Fatman Beyond, Smith shared his fervor for The Flash and Keaton’s return, stating the second will “carry tears to my eyes.” At the same time, he was fast to share his hopes for Christian Bale placing in a Batman appearance as indeed, which could transform The Flash into the DCEU’s No Way Home. Smith said:
“However, to do a No Way Home, however, they better acquire Christian Bale as indeed. Assuming I’m them, I’m backing a cash truck up to Christian Bale’s just begging to get him for two minutes so we can have our own No Way Home.” For The Flash, that means realities will impact. Similar to the new blockbuster hit Spider-Man: No Way Home, The Flash will see film continuities crossing over right after Barry’s actions. Not just will it highlight the DCEU’s Batman (Ben Affleck), however it will also bring back Michael Keaton’s version of the person interestingly since Batman Returns. Regardless of whether these two Batmen will really share the screen in The Flash remains to be seen, yet fans are unquestionably trusting so.
As has been very much reported at this point, Spider-Man: No Way Home features its own multiversal premise that allows for past onscreen villains like Doc Ock (Alfred Molina) and Electro (Jamie Foxx) to show up alongside Tom Holland’s web-slinger. Moreover, (spoilers ahead) the film features Holland’s Peter Parker predecessors, Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield. On account of The Flash, joining Affleck, Keaton, and Bale would make a similar impact for the DCEU, but with the Dark Knight himself.
At this moment, plot details for The Flash are still being left hidden, so it isn’t clear how Keaton’s Batman appears in the DCEU. With so generally secret with regards to what the film has in store, there’s no reason why Bale can’t play his Batman again as well. Assuming Muschietti wound up bringing him back, however, one may trust that twist is left well enough alone until The Flash premieres. A greater part of No Way Home’s returns were uncovered early, and keeping in mind that that still made for some exhilarating moments in the theater, it would’ve been significantly more energizing to not know anything. Affleck and Keaton are now set for The Flash, and assuming Bale is to return as indeed, let that be a stunning surprise for audiences.
