Ben Affleck Talks About Batman's Relationship With The Flash In JUSTICE LEAGUE

The Flash and Batman have a great, close relationship in the comics, but will we see that in Zack Snyder's Justice League? Well, according to Ben Affleck, Bruce might be taking on the role of mentor...

With Batman (Ben Affleck) having to unite the Justice League (Seven) in order to stop Steppenwolf and his army of Parademons from destroying the world, he also has to make sure that the members of this newly formed team can actually get along. One relationship that already has fans buzzing due to a scene description from the Justice League press junket is the relationship between Batman and The Flash (Ezra Miller), and according to Comic Book Resources, Batman will take on the role of mentor to young Barry Allen.

During the Justice League set visit, Affleck was asked about the possibility of seeing the Scarlet Speedster taking on a sidekick-like role to the Dark Knight in the film. However, Affleck doesn't think Ezra Miller would see their relationship that way. "That's interesting. There's an element of that to it. There's a quality to really what Ezra [Miller] does that is young and fun and full of life, and excited about what they're doing that's so in contrast to who Batman is," said Affleck. "There's a little bit of that natural yin and yang to playing scenes with him. There's not the ward aspect to it, but there's a little bit of the mentor -- which you'd probably ask Ezra and he'd be like, '[frick] that! He's not my mentor!' But I think there is a little bit. And it's fun to play, definitely." If the scene description from the press junket with Bruce recruiting Barry is any indication of what their relationship will be like, then it looks like the film is taking a step in the right direction.

What do you think about seeing Batman and The Flash having a mentor/mentee relationship in Justice League?
