THE FLASH Set Photos Seemingly Give Us A First Look At Ben Affleck's Version Of Batman
Though it doesn't appear to be Ben Affleck himself in the costume, these latest photos from the UK set of The Flash seemingly give us a first glimpse of a stunt double suited-up as the DCEU's Batman.
Some more photos from the set of The Flash have found their way online, and it looks like we finally have a first glimpse of Ben Affleck's incarnation of Batman... or at least, a stunt double in his Batman costume!
Though there's a slim chance this is Affleck himself, the Justice League actor was only recently spotted on vacation in Italy with Jennifer Lopez. Plus, it would be unusual for a high-profile star to perform any kind of motorcycle stunts themselves (unless they happen to be Tom Cruise), so this is most likely a stand-in.
Nevertheless, this is clearly the established DCEU Dark Knight riding into action on his Batcycle and not Michael Keaton's version, who will be sporting his classic Batman '89 costume. Previous set snaps have also featured Sasha Calle's Supergirl, and Ezra Miller as Barry Allen.
The Batsuit appears to have given a few upgrades since we last saw it (the cape will no doubt be added in post), though there's always a chance Affleck's Bruce Wayne will don a couple of different outfits.

Christina Hodson wrote the The Flash's script, with Michael Disco and Marianne Jenkins on board as executive producers. Plot details are still under wraps, but the story is expected to be at least partially influenced by the Flashpoint comic book arc.
In addition to Calle, Miller, Keaton and Affleck, Kiersey Clemons will reprise the role of Iris West, and Zack Snyder's Justice League star Ray Fisher recently indicated that there was still a chance he could appear as Cyborg (we seriously doubt that happens at this stage).
The Flash is currently shooting in The UK, and is scheduled to race into theaters on November 4, 2022.
