Ben Affleck may take his final bow as the Dark Knight with The Flash, but he may get another shot as Batman on HBO Max. Why? The Snydercut.
The following contains potential spoilers for The Flash movie.
The confusion and organizational mess at Warner Bros. continues.
On one hand, as I previously wrote, The Flash movie will be Ben Affleck’s swan song as Batman as far as the DC theatrical films go.
But where does that leave his Dark Knight movie that I scooped for HBO Max in September 2020?
Essentially, they’re going to do a Black Widow of sorts.
Black Widow died in 2019’s Avengers: Endgame; however, she is alive in her upcoming solo movie.
In other words, Ben Affleck’s Batman movie will be a flashback.
How the character is going to perish in The Flash remains to be seen.
Will he make the ultimate sacrifice like Supergirl or the Flash in the Crisis on Infinite Earths comic book?
That seems the most likely scenario from what I’ve been told.
HBO Max Craves Ben Affleck Batman Movie After Snydercut Success
Nevertheless, I heard The Flash film will be a hodgepodge of Back to the Future, Flashpoint, Crisis on Infinite Earths, and The Last Jedi.
Given that, he could be erased from existence because of a time-travel snafu similar to Marty McFly’s fading photograph from Back to the Future.
Pick your poison?
The massive success of The Snyder Cut has AT&T – parent company of WarnerMedia – seeking sequels and spin-offs.
Measuring the popularity of The Snyder Cut was never about opening weekend; that’s the stuff of movie theaters.
AT&T is thrilled at the numbers The Snyder Cut has done thus far.
However, this is not simply a race; it’s a marathon.
And Zack Snyder’s four-hour epic is projecting well for the future.
HBO Max wants more of this stuff.
The Snyderverse is content that builds on itself. AT&T is seeing a world of additional streaming material that’ll continually ignite on social media and bring subscribers.
The Ben Affleck Batman film is on their want list.
Sources revealed they want this made more than ever now.
DC Films, on the other hand, will proceed with Walter Hamada’s vision of unconnected comic-book movies mostly served with lower budgets.
The choice seems to become clearer: if you want a full meal, go to HBO Max.
The cinemas will serve Hamada burgers.
