DC Comics' extended universe in cinema is growing . Recently, rumors evoked the return of Michael Keaton , emblBatman by Tim Burton in The Flash. Today, it is another (rather successful) incarnation of the Dark Knight that makes people talk. Ben Affleck is said to be ready to don the Batman costume . The actor has never hidden his pleasure in playing the character and has largely supported Zack Snyder for the release of his Justice League.
Ben Affleck, ready to return to the DCEU
While Zack Snyder is preparing his Justice League for HBO Max , a lot of information explained that the filmmaker would no longer direct the DCEU. It must be said that the Warner has a new specification: a more realistic approach. Approach already initiated by Joker and continued by Matt Reeves with The Batman (and Robert Pattison in the role of Bruce Wayne).
But it seemshowever, Ben Affleck's Batman has not said his last word . Like Henry Cavill, who teased his return to Superman , the actor would prepare to put on the costume. Discussions would take place around the idea of bringing the actor back to play Batman.
According to The Nerd Cultured, Ben Affleck signed a new contract with Warner Bros. return as Batman in films produced by ... Zack Snyder. We talk about appearances in the DCEU, a mini-series (HBO Max?) Or even a feature film, quite simply.
But that's not all since Joe Manganiello (True Blood) should play Deathstroke to face this Batman.

For now, all is guesswork and plans for the Warner are still unclear for the DCEU. If the studio seems to want a more realistic approach, fantastic films are nevertheless on the program. Suicide Squad 2, Aquaman 2, Black Adam, Shazam 2… So many projects that show the diversification of the DCEU.
Without forgetting Mic's potential return hael Keaton in Batman and the project to explore several timelines of the character, different eras, etc.
It is on August 22 that will be held the first DC FanDome . A 24 hour online event around the DC Comics universe. Warner may deliver new information about the DCEU during conferences, including about Batman.
