Flash Screening Leak Teases 10-20 Minute Team-Up With Affleck’s Batman

Apparent details about Ben Affleck's role in The Flash have surfaced following a recent test screening.

A leak on Reddit suggests there's a team-up between Affleck's Batman and Ezra Miller's Flash that takes up nearly the first 20 minutes of the film, with Gal Gadot's Wonder Woman saving the Dark Knight from certain death. Reputable leaker ViewerAnon corroborated this information but clarified that the team-up could be closer to 10-15 minutes.

The Flash is expected to be Affleck's last outing as Batman. That said, Miller has teased a continuation of Affleck's Batman beyond the upcoming DC Extended Universe film. Most notably, the actor posted an image of Affleck's Caped Crusader with a Joker-like "HA HA HA" scribbled across it. Behind Batfleck was the text from a January interview in which the actor explained that he enjoyed playing the Dark Knight in Warner Bros.' forthcoming Flash film, with the words "one last time" underlined using the same mark-up tool that created the laughter captions.

"I have never said this -- this is hot off the presses -- but maybe my favorite scenes in terms of Batman and the interpretation of Batman that I have done, were in the Flash movie," Affleck said in the aforementioned interview. "I hope they maintain the integrity of what we did because I thought it was great and really interesting -- different, but not in a way that is incongruent with the character. Who knows? Maybe they will decide that it doesn't work, but when I went and did it, it was really fun and really, really satisfying and encouraging and I thought, 'Wow -- I think I have finally figured it out.'"

Affleck recently explained that the messy Justice League production soured him on the DC Extended Universe, thus prompting his exit from the role of Batman. "That was a bad experience because of a confluence of things: my own life, my divorce, being away too much, the competing agendas and then [director] Zack [Snyder]’s personal tragedy... and the reshooting," he said. "It just was the worst experience. It was awful. It was everything that I didn't like about this. That became the moment where I said, 'I'm not doing this anymore.'"

The Flash arrives in theaters June 23, 2023.
