On June2, 2022, The Flash will hit the big screen in Flashpoint. The film will feature Ben Affleck as Batman, as well as Michael Keaton as Batman, perhaps alluding to the appearance of the DCEU multiverse. The emotional dynamics between Barry Allen and Bruce Wayne will be a significant aspect to the upcoming film. Director Andy Muschietti further delved into the dynamic fans can hope to experience.
“He’s a very substantial part of the emotional impact of the movie. The interaction and relationship between Barry and Affleck’s Wayne will bring an emotional level that we haven’t seen before,” Andy Muschietti explained in an interview with Vanity Fair. “It’s Barry’s movie, it’s Barry’s story, but their characters are more related than we think. They both lost their mothers to murder, and that’s one of the emotional vessels of the movie. That’s where the Affleck Batman kicks in.”
Perhaps the introduction to the multiverse will allow other Joker’s and Batman’sto enter the main timeline in the future.
In 2011, there was an animated movie called “Flashpoint”, where The Flash unintentionally created an alternate timeline. Using the power of the Speed Force, Barry Allen ran back through time to prevent his mother’s murder. However, saving his mother produced several negative consequences resulting in a potential apocalypse.
