“It’s a great time to be a DC fan” has been a common thread we’ve seen on social media for the past month or so, and you couldn’t be more right. Ben Affleck could be back to team up with Zack Snyder for future projects as Batman.
Sources close to TCN have revealed that Ben Affleck is indeed returning and that he has already signed a new contract as the Bat of Gotham in a limited capacity.
La Hoguera de Gotham and Snydercut214 have also heard the same reports regarding Affleck’s contract. On the the LightCast podcast on June 26th, TCN EIC Taylor Murphy discussed the news after conversations with these two accounts.
With HBO Max, AT&T, and WarnerMedia backing Snyder’s vision, this deal would keep Affleck in the Snyderverse as the Caped Crusader after Zack Snyder’s Justice League. These projects can range from cameos, miniseries, and full-length feature films through HBO Max.
Word is that will most likely get the official announcement of his return as Batman at either Justice Con on July 25th-26th (If WB approves the announcement for a fan event) or the more likely event at a designated announcement at DC FanDome on August 22nd.
It’s a great time to be a DC fan.
